2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS: A Video Profile

The past couple of months, I’ve reserved Monday posts for “Prestigious Sounds,” which highlights the unique exhaust noise of both Porsche and Audi vehicles. This week, though, I’d like to diverge slightly from that formula. Instead, I want to present two terrific videos of the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which, in fact, made an appearance on Monday morning once before. With 500 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds the GT3 RS is a top-notch sports car with a design to match. With specs like this, it’s no wonder we have featured this vehicle more than once.

This morning’s first clip features an introduction by Brendon Hartley, who is a Porsche LMP1 factory-driver. Although the first couple of minutes play a bit cheeky (with Hartley filming on his smartphone), the video soon transitions into a track shoot, followed by a road shoot, and concludes with another road shoot. All three driving segments contain some ridiculous exterior shots. I particularly enjoy the overhead angles captured at the 13:09 and 13:45 marks, respectively:

The second video, produced by MotorTrend and hosted by Randy Pobst, is, for all intents and purposes, a proper review. But, as with the video before it, the clip contains some amazing, exterior shots. While the setting does not change as often as the first video, the sound is far better (IMO). If you’re curious as to Probst’s assessment of the car, he says, “it’s the closest thing you can get to a race car and drive legally on the highways in the United States of America from Porsche. Or pretty much from anybody else, for that matter.”
