Porsche Intros Race-Ready Yet Street-Legal 2010 911 GT3 RS


Porsche recently unveiled the details on its latest GT3 and, as always, it’s a wallet-burning beauty.  Called the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the new ride gets a host of dynamic upgrades that easily makes it the most potent of the line.

The track-ready yet street-legal speedster adds another 15hp over its non-RS counterpart, bringing the total to 450bhp, using the 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer engine.   It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, shorter transmission ratios and dynamic engine mounts (which change their stiffness and damping effects on the fly).  Other performance details include a racing-worthy PASM suspension, wider front and rear tracks (nine inches and twelve inches, respectively) and improved weight.  Buyers also get the choice of a  rechargeable lithium-ion battery to shave off an additional 22lbs from the car.


Of course, the damn thing looks hot enough to get you laid even if your other car is a unicycle.  Porsche even went a little out of their way and outfitted the GT3 RS with huge and loud body graphics, an extra large carbon-fiber rear wing (with aluminum supports) and revised front and rear fascias.  The gray and bright red theme may scream attention-whore, but we all know a car like this bellows that out anyway.

The racing-ready 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS will make its first stop at the Frankfurt Motor Show this coming September 17 to 27.  It will go on sale in the US in the early spring of 2010, with starting price set at $132,800.   Hey, mom, can you crack my piggy bank, see how much I got?
