It would be an interesting exercise to see how far back in time you’d have to go before you found a red hot Porsche 911 GT3 RS that, upon further examination, proved no faster than this brand new but very standard 911 Carrera S. Not far at all, I’d bet. This new ‘992’ series of 911 has the same 444bhp as had a GT3 RS from the beginning of this decade, and while it is heavier, so too does it have a lot more torque. If you care about Nürburgring lap times, it appears there might be as little as a second in it.
