It's always delightful to take a dive into the Porsche 911 line-up and observe how the 20-plus derivatives steer clear of the cannibalization threat. Even so, there are times when a certain Neunelfer will inevitably make another one appear less badass than it is.
Case in point with the rear-engined spectacle in the images to your right. We're dealing with a London supercar spotting episode, one that involves no less than three Neunelfers sharing a stretch of tarmac.

We're dealing with a pair of 991s, namely a GT3 RS and a Turbo S (does anybody ever spot "normal" Turbos these days?) and a 996-generation Targa. We'll leave the senior rear-engined machine out of this one, as we're talking about an attention duel between the young guns.

The Rennsport model might come in the Lava Orange launch color we've already gotten used to, but the supercar is wingless. We're not sure why the generously-sized aero element is missing, but you don't need it in the British capital traffic anyway - remember the time when we showed an Ultraviolet Blue GT3 RS that was temporarily separated by its wing in order for a custom color job? Perhaps this is one of those cases.

Regardless, the 500 hp GT3 RS makes the 560 hp Turbo S look almost tame, especially if you put on your Porsche connoisseur glasses. And such an image is worth tons of internet fame, so we'll tip our lenses to Autogespot for the pics.

P.S.: If you've seen enough GT3 RS Porsches (can anybody say that?) and are looking for a 911 R piece, perhaps this Black-White-Yello trio that recently arrived at a US dealer based in Illinois will quench your Zuffenhausen machine-spotting thirst - here's the video showing the rear-engined triumvirate.
