2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Hits 300 Km/h At Night On The Autobahn

Germany’s Autobahnen still have some ‘no speed limit’ sections, and are among the few places in the world where enthusiasts can legally max out their cars.

Doing it at night is riskier, though, but at the same time more rewarding, especially when the chosen weapon is the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. In this case, Carfection took the sports car all the way up to 300 km/h (186 mph) once the road cleared, squeezing every drop of power out of the naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six.

With enough space, Porsche claims that the 911 GT3 RS would have eventually maxed out at 312 km/h (193 mph). Naught to 100km/h (0-62mph) is completed in 3.2 seconds, and the track-focused 911, aided by its aerodynamic and mechanicals and the 520PS (512hp / 382kW) and 468Nm (346lb-ft) of torque produced by the powertrain, joined a very exclusive club by lapping the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes.

To be more precise, it posted a 6:56.4 lap time in the hands of Porsche works driver Kevin Estre, becoming the third Porsche, after the 911 GT2 RS and 918 Spyder, to drop under the seven-minute mark.

As one would expect, this level performance comes at a very steep price: €195,137 in Germany and $187,500 in the United States. Then again, that’s some €90,000 and $105,000, respectively, less than the 911 GT2 RS, so one might argue that the entry price is relatively logical.

  • Not a good idea to drive so fast at night on a European road…for those of you who have driven them, know that outside of the cities there are no highway lamps and the roads are pitch dark…

    • Andy Enright

      It’s a good job that Porsche thoughtfully fitted that car with headlights then, isn’t it?

      • Funny…try going 300 kmh at night, on a road that the only light is your headlight…make sure your life insurance is paid up…hehehe…

    • Matthew Daraei

      So does in USA. If you have ever driven there in the states, you’ll notice that there is not lights except in outskirt of the cities highways. Pitch black everywhere in USA.

      At least cities in Europe are built near each other, so you reach highway lights within shorter distances.

      • You’ve never driven in the US…you have made an absolutely false statement…our interstate highways are very well lighted…

        • Matthew Daraei

          What. My mother lives in Portland, I lived in USA for more than 8 years. Which interstate are you talking about?

          As I told you only near cities, and whenever there are many exits in the highways, then there is full of lights. Other than that it is pitch black in the USA.

          Just send me the names of the interstates you’re talking about, so I can see whether or not I drove on them. Thank you!
