Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK with IPE Exhaust Hits the Dyno, Flat-Six Heaven Ensues

We don't need prescient powers to tell you the 911 GT3 RS, with its naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six, will become one of those highly collectible Porsches.

Nevertheless, don't expect the potential of the Rennsport machine to keep owners from taking their track-savvy Porsches down the tuning route. The most recent example of this comes from France, where a GT3 RS with a custom exhaust hit the dyno, offering us a memorable aural spectacle.

The Ultraviolet Blue machine you'll be able to find in the video below was gifted with a titanium exhaust supplied by IPE. The piece of footage, which is just over three minutes long, is worth every second, with the dyno scene mentioned above being just one of the treats offered.

And when you have a boxer that revs all the way to 8,800 rpm, it's no wonder such a custom exhaust can lead to an extreme soundtrack.

When a Zuffenhausen-friendly YouTube user turned to the comments section of the video to ask IPE about their... experience with the 991 GT3 RS, the Taiwan-based tuner replied by stating it gifted over ten units with its goodies so far.

Simple math tells us that means the exhaust specialist's hardware is now found on 0.5 percent of the world's GT3 RS population. Sure, with Porsche producing 2,000 units of this 911 derivative per year, that number will change. But the conclusion remains - we now live in an era that sees aficionados making no compromises in their quest to make the most out of the potential of the ever-faster machines the industry can deliver.

This obviously also applies outside the tech side and we've got the perfect GT3 RS-related example for you. We're talking about the owner who gifted his RS Porsche with a Gulf livery.

Interestingly, the 911 in question left the factory in Lava Orange, the GT3 RS' launch color. And while that hue is nothing short of stunning, the owner of the car found a simple way of fully dipping into the color's potential, as you'll be able to see here.
