For more than three decades, I have craved the chance to drive an RSR. So, you can imagine how excited I was that Porsche offered me the chance to be among only a handful of journalists to drive a new 911 GT3 RS. Perhaps, this isn’t a full race version RSR, but still the road version that few in the world will ever drive. Naturally, half a second went by before I could say yes.
The next week, there in my driveway was a contemporary example of a 1974 IROC Porsche. The hairs on my arms stood at attention as I wandered back to my brush with Donohue’s greatness.
The 911 GT3 RS is just a step under the GT3 RSR, a car Porsche produces as a track ready race car for those folks who have a bank account large enough to be able to afford such toys. With the GT3 RS, there are few street vehicles that can produce the visceral emotions it generates.
