Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK vs. 911 GT3 PDK Nurburgring GP Battle Brings Extreme Fun

Track day good times don't get much better than the ones visible in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, which brings both shades of the Porsche 991 GT3 badge together.

We're talking about a "standard" GT3, if we can call this speed-tastic Neunelfer that, as well as a GT3 RS, with the two having met on the track earlier this week. The GT division Zuffenhausen machine, along with its Rennsport sibling, got together on the Nurburgring, hence the good times caught on camera.

The GT3 was used as the recording car, with the 911 packing both a forward- and a rear-facing camera, which means you can also keep an eye on the RS at all times.

We have to explain this GT3, which uses the standard steel brakes and rides on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, comes with a single tuning move, namely an altered rear camber angle (that's minus two degrees, for all you number aficionados).

So the fact that the two Porsches were able to play is owed to a combination of the driving skill of the GT3 guy and the playful attitude of the man in the GT3 RS.

Note that the track-savvy Porsches didn't go running on the Nordschleife, using the GP configuration of the Nurburgring instead. And while Formula One races no longer take place on the Ring, the 3.19-mile (5.15 km) stretch of asphalt can deliver all the extreme sensation one needs, while also being brilliant at exposing every weakness a car has, be it a street machine or a racecar.

With the 475 hp flat-six at the back of the GT3 revving higher than the 500 hp 4.0-liter boxer of the GT3 RS, perhaps the first serving as the camera car was the ideal choice, as far as the soundtrack of this adventure is concerned.
