Lizzard Green 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS with Weissach Package Spotted in Stuttgart

Now that the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS has made its online debut (we'll get to meet the thing in the flesh next month, at the Geneva Motor Show), real-world sightings of the track special have started hitting social media.

And after showing you Walter Rohrl sliding the hell out of the 520 hp toy on snow, as well as a Racing Yellow non-Weissach incarnation of the beast, the time has come to talk about a Lizzard Green example. This was recently spotted in Stuttgart, the carmaker's home city.

As with the machines mentioned above, this is a manufacturer vehicle, as we still have some waiting to do until the first GT3 RS owners take delivery of their cars.

Zooming in on the exposed carbon fiber frunk lid and roof, as well as on the Porsche schipt on the rear wing and the mirror housings, we can tell this is a Weissach Package car - unlike in the case of the 991.2 GT2 RS, the magnesium wheels are a separate option, one that's not present on this machine.

In fact, the Neunelfer we have here doesn't even pack the usual setup, which includes 21-inch wheels at the rear and 20-inch rollers up front. Instead, we're dealing with 20-inch goodies all-round, which are shod in winter tires for testing purposes.

Despite this being a Weissach Package car, neither the full bucker seats, nor the sport bucket units are present inside the vehicle. Instead, the machine comes with the 18-Way Adaptive Seats, which ensure the driver's back can enjoy the ride.

Oh, and notice that the rear apron comes with a model designation delete - as if anybody could mistake this thing for anything else than a GT3 RS after checking out the massive decals on the sides of the performer.

And while Porsche engineers polish the final details of the 991.2 GT3 RS, future owners are going crazy over their specs.


 

Another brand new 991.2 GT3 RS test car has been spotted in Stuttgart - this time a Weissach Package example in Lizard Green by local reader @j.b_photography. The test cars are out in full force. Like the Racing Yellow test car, this one is also wearing the smaller factory winter wheels. Outside you can distinguish a Weissach Package car from a standard model by the exposed carbon fiber front lid, roof, rear wing with the Porsche script, and mirror housings. This particular test car also has the Adaptive 18-way seats, an interesting element for the Weissach Package. Model designation delete on the rear as well. What are your thoughts on the new Lizard Green color? #PTSRS
