Just like a baby who is now in his first month of life, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is getting sweeter by the day. Except that this is a baby that will kick your posterior and leave you breathless if the adult behind him decides to put that wonderful 4-liter flat six to work.
Zuffenhausen is well aware of the track creature's aura and is sparing no occasion to showcase the machine. Thus, we are now treated with a new piece of footage, one that shows the GT3 RS in delicious slow motion.

Just like an actual owner would, the Porsche people allowed the supermodel to stretch its naturally-aspirated legs on both the road and the track. Speaking of natural aspiration, the 500 hp boxer does a wonderful job at keeping our easy uber-busy and perhaps this is a good occasion to talk about the soundtrack of the Neunelfer.

Hills are alive with the sound of the 911 GT3 RS

We've never tried to hide the fact that we fancy the 911 and yet we have to admit its distinct voice falls behind what other performance automobiles have to offer. Nonetheless, the flat six at its back manages to top its competitors in the same manner as the car altogether deals with its rivals, namely by betting on the practicality card.

If the soundtrack of a GT3 RS is, say an eight or a nine, the bonus is that the boxer choir is always there to thrill you. Thus, the driver doesn't necessarily have to risk loosing his license in order to enjoy the aural side of the car, a problem that affects many performance automobiles on the market today.

Porsche still hasn't decided the GT2's fate, which makes the GT3 RS double-important

Zuffenhausen is still debating the business case behind a 991-generation GT2. Certain voices claim that the GT3 RS can cater to the needs of the purists and that there would be a very limited number of customers who would opt for a rear-wheel-driven Turbo with extra muscle.

This may just mean the GT3 RS will act as both mother and father for our inner child who craves extreme Porsche stuff, so it deserves double the respect.
