New Porsche 911 GT3 RS Goes Offroading, Shows Typical 911 Practicality

With the GT3 incarnation of the Porsche 911 being so far ahead of the standard Neunelfer in terms of handling, you need to experience the GT3 RS in order to believe how good this is when compared to the GT3.

Given this performance game that's being played in the Porsche 911 line-up, many people can't help but wonder if the GT3 RS still retains one of the key aspects that make up the 911 recipe, namely the practicality of the vehicle.

The answer to that question is positive and we've got the proof for it in the image above - when you have a track-savvy toy that can also handle things when it runs out of runway, you have to come to such a conclusion.

Humor aside, this GT3 RS was caught performing a nose dive after having met a bold vibrator on the Ascari racetrack in Spain.
There's no reason to worry, you Porscha-loving folks
Supercar spotter Frozenspeed, who shot the Porsche at just the right time, explains we can make fun of the happening, since the GT3 RS wasn't hurt in the incident.

It's interesting to see how the Porsche's rear-engined layout helped the machine even after this left the track.

We're glad to hear this piece of track day fetish was able to return to the activities it was built for once it finished its stint on the grass.

With Porsche only building 2,000 units of this Neunelfer derivative per year, each and every one of these cars needs to be kept safe. While being manhandled through every corner of a track, obviously.

At least in our book, owners who end up in situations such as the one we have here are much better off than those who baby their RS Porsches, or even worse, keep the cars in a garage for all eternity.
