The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS boast more power, which can be attributed not only to the engine, but the weight reduction as well. Further blurring the lines between a race car and a road vehicle, this model is made for auto enthusiasts who want to feel a thrill without needing to become a certified race car driver to get it.

With a magnesium roof, and carbon fiber covers for the engine and luggage compartments, it's no wonder that the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is so much faster. It doesn't hurt that it's fueled by a 4.0L six-cylinder engine. Uncrate writes, "The result is a 0-62 mph time of 3.3 seconds, a lower center of gravity for better handling, and company-record 7:29 lap time at the Nürburgring. Time saved on your daily commute: unknown."
