Porsche recently announced an update for the new 911 GT3 RS. As a tribute to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7, Porsche announced the Tribute to Carrera RS Package for the new 911 GT3 RS. Unfortunately, it will only be available for the U.S. market. Part of the Tribute to Carrera RS Package includes styling interior and exterior elements unique to the package, an equally unique Porsche Design timepiece, a few accessories, and for the first time ever, a unique NFT program.
Five decades ago, the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was the top performing 911. The wheels and graphics in Viper Green is available from the factory. In the new Tribute to Carrera RS Package, it comes in white with accents in Python Green and uses the 911 GT3 RS optioned with the Weissach Package, with leather and Race-Tex interior as the starting point. Other elements that were given the special Exclusive Manufaktur color include the magnesium wheels in Python Green, Python Green mirror caps, High Gloss Black brake calipers, GT3 RS side graphics, special RS logo on the wing end plates which also features the American flag, GT3 RS graphic on the rear bumper, and PORSCHE script on the underside of the wing.
A significant amount of exposed carbon fiber to both the interior and exterior was added in the standard Weissach Package. Even the chassis components were made in the same material.
To set the package apart, there are several special interior modifications included. Some of which are the illuminated doorsill guards with “Tribute to Carrera RS” script, deviated stitching in green, keys painted in white, and center console lid embossed with the “RS” logo.
Special accessories that will also come specifically with the package include a Porsche Design watch with a winding rotor in Python Green which was designed to look like the car’s magnesium wheel, a strap with matching stitching, and a white bezel. There is also the custom car cover, key caps in Python Green, RS valve stem caps with script in Python Green, and custom license plate frames. A couple of 1:43 scale model cars will also be included; one model car will be the 1973 Carrera RS and the other one is a replica of the new car that the client will be receiving.
The package also comes with an NFT program that gives customers digital badges showing their attendance at key racetracks and Porsche events. Physical vehicle graphics will also come with the digital keepsake so that the achievements of the NFT owner can be seen by anyone in the car’s presence and online.
Customers with an existing 911 GT3 RS allocation in the U.S. can simply contact their Porsche Dealer to avail of the Tribute to Carrera RS Package. The 911 GT3 RS with the unique, U.S. specific Tribute to Carrera RS Package will have a total MSRP of $312,550. It does not include the $1,450 delivery, nor the processing and handling fee.
