Join 7 Generations Of Porsche 911 GT3 RS On The Isle Of Man

Every fan of the Porsche 911 has his or her own favorite version. But for many, the GT3 RS is the ultimate. The most hardcore, driver-focused, unadulterated driving experience. Where better to shake it down, then, than the Isle of Man?

The British isle is a veritable mecca for racing enthusiasts. It’s home to the famous Tourist Trophy motorcycle race. But even when the race isn’t on, the island has no speed limits. And it has some of the twistiest country roads you’re likely to ever find.

So to showcase the latest GT3 RS, Porsche took it to the isle. And along with it, the automaker brought six previous iterations as well – stretching way back to the legendary Carrera RS from the 1970s. Oh, and they brought a Ducati Panigale road bike along for good measure. (Porsche and Ducati are, after all, sister brands under the same Volkswagen Group umbrella.)

That represents quite a spectrum of performance. That original Carrera RS packed a 2.7-liter engine producing just 210 horsepower (150 kW). The latest 991.2-generation GT3 RS still has a naturally aspirated flat six. But it displaces close to twice as much at 4.0 liters, and produces more than twice the output at 513 hp (382 kW). That gives it a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time quoted at 3.2 seconds. And that very well may be a conservative estimate.

The spectacle of all those Rennsport models on such legendary roads would be enough to leave any Porschephile (or really any performance enthusiast) salivating. And fortunately they captured the action (and its context) in this four-minute clip. So turn up the speakers and feast your eyes on the video below.
