6. Porsche 911 GT3 RS
The most extreme Porsche 911 ever produced. This new GT3 RS isn’t just inspired by motorsport, it’s a full-blown race car, albeit one with number plates that have been engineered for user-friendliness and accessibility for mortals on the road and track. The perfect companion for the racetrack: With its multitude of performance design features and technical details, the chronograph 911 GT3 RS is perfectly matched to the car on which it’s based. The new front splitter, bonnet vents, side skirts, and vertical fins all play their part in producing as much downforce as possible, but the star of the show is the new rear wing. The seven-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox is similar to the optional automatic box you can get in the GT3 (there’s no manual option in the new RS) but Porsche has fitted a shorter final-drive ratio to boost acceleration in all seven gears. Porsche claims it will hit 60 mph from rest in 3.2 seconds. That’s the same as the outgoing 991.2 GT3 RS and 0.2 seconds quicker than the new GT3.
