    Happy 70th Anniversary to Porsche! I don’t think we have celebrated this anniversary in WHC, if we have, we’re going again!

    2018 is the 70th Anniversary of Porsche sports cars. From the start of modern racing cars Porsche’s participation has been hugely successful, their exploits and stories fill an entire library. The first vehicle to bear the Porsche name was registered on June 8, 1948: the 356 “No.1” Roadster. According to the Porsche PR Newsroom, this is the day on which the Porsche brand was born!

    To celebrate Porsche, WHC 107 is giving their 911 GT3 RS a thorough workout, with a double combi.

    Considering this car is regarded as one of the best performance road cars ever made, amazingly the 911 GT3 RS has not featured in WHC to date.
    The car we have in AC is the 2015 911 GT3 RS (991.1) model. Porsche launched our version of the GT3 RS in 2015, as a more track biased version of the GT3. The roof is made from magnesium. The interior includes bucket seats and a bolted-on roll cage.
    Power is from a 4.0-litre, naturally aspirated flat-six, giving 500 hp (370 kW) and 339 lb ft (460 N·m) of torque and the GT3 RS will do 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in 10.9 seconds
    The transmission is PDK only. Its Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time is 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
    As mentioned, motoring journalists around the world revere this car:
    Autocar magazine said: “The engine can unquestionably be ranked among the very best of any super-sports car on the market…. quite breathtaking handling balance and response, and equally astonishing levels of feedback from all four corners of the car.”
    Drive Mag in Aus said: “a masterpiece of modern sports cars… from behind the wheel the GT3 RS feels relentless…. By 6000rpm the flat-six is already screaming but continues pulling hard all the way past 8000rpm. And the noise at that point is awesome - it sounds like a Carrera Cup race car.”
    Road and Track in the US won’t allow me to look at their write up, but here’s a link that you’ll like from them:
    https://www.roadandtrack.com/motorsports/videos/a25802/walter-rohrl-porsche-911-gt3-rs/

    A German circuit is an obvious choice for a Porsche and like the car, it’s the first WHC for the Nurburgring Sprint Circuit.

    Recommended tyre pressures are…
    Hypercar Road fronts = 31ps1 rears = 32psi
    minTR = 75 maxTR = 100

    Like many of the Porsche cars in AC, you’ll have to fiddle around for ages with the tyre pressures to get all 4 corners happy… I found, after just 4 laps at Brands Indy, the left side tyres are fine and grippy but the right side tyres are stone cold “dark blue” and the car was quite twitchy!

    Of course I'm going to show up when a Porsche is involved, let alone the GT3RS!

    On a side note, the 991.2 GT3RS might just be my favorite production Porsche to date. Then again, that shouldn't be taking away from the reimagined Singer-Williams 911 that also dropped earlier this year. Porsche seriously killed it in 2018 to say the least! That includes the class victories at Sebring, Nurburgring, Le Mans, and Road Atlanta. And with the 992 now coming into focus I can only hope the GT3RS for that generation is even more special...

    First few laps and it’s a fun car, i like it a lot!!
    it’s a slippery thing tho but feels nice.
    Think I’d gain more time if I learnt how to control it better into the apexes instead of just sliding in
