The 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a homologation model intended to serve as a basis for motor sport activities in accordance with the new international GT rules. The RS in the model name will cause the hearts of all Porsche enthusiasts and motor racing fans to beat faster. Models such as the Carrera RS 2.7 of 1972 and the 911 SC RS (1984) were also built under the homologation rules, and not only represent proud chapters in Porsche’s heritage but often rewrote motor-sport history as well. The 911 GT3 RS is intended to continue this tradition.
Launched in October of 2003, the 996 911 GT3 RS is an extremely sporty model with the power and purist qualities of a thoroughbred circuit racer, but legally qualified in every way for road use. It is the perfect track car. Customers can race it in weekends and drive it to work on weekdays, (if they can tolerate some compromises). Compare with the standard 996 GT3, it has stiffer suspensions and virtually no equipment for creature comfort. In return, you get the purest driving experience among all versions of 911.
