A Porsche 911 is almost always an object of desire. A fast 911 is even more so, but take a practically race-spec Porsche and give it a touch of nostalgia and you have a recipe for a tongue-out drool fest. Like its ancestor, the 1973 911 Carrera RS, the GT3 RS is modified to serve as a homologation model for racing. The GT3 RS takes the standard GT3 and goes a step further in distilling it to purpose for motorsport. The rear of the car is widened 44mm, and the body is lightened through the use of carbon fiber on the hood and the adjustable rear wing. Changes are also made to meet race-regulations, like the use of special rear wheel carriers and split rear-suspension wishbones. Peak output from the 3.6L boxer six is the same 415 hp, but the GT3 RS uses a unique, single-mass flywheel to interface the engine with the clutch and transmission. The GT3 RS will be offered in two standard finishes, black and silver metallic, and in two optional colors, orange and green. The graphics and wheels are offered in either orange or black to coordinate with the chosen paint scheme. The 911 GT3 RS will reach North America in the spring of 2007, and we're sure a few wealthy Porsche-o-philes will find the as-yet-unannounced price a palatable ransom for this street-legal racing machine embellished with nostalgia. Special thanks to Eric Bryant for the pictures you find on the post, here and after the jump.

      I have chosen not to get one since it would require a winch to remove my load from the seat.

      I would have that in Green in a second, that is, if I had the Green to get one...dreams can come true, eh?

      Yet another amazing trackable car from an amazing company. Very nice.

      One must wonder if Porsche offers a special program for children to learn to work on those cars.... theres no way an adult can reach half the stuff in that bay heh.

      The interior is quite nice for a car meant for the track...

      I don't know if I'd call it art, but I'd call it cool. I wouldn't mind driving one.

      John, i hope to god you get your GT3. i saw one in london a month ago and i have to tell it's an absolutely different experience in real life. for whoever it was that compared the GT3 RS front to a Hyundai, maybe you should just stay off car sites.
      I have an order for a GT3 RS in london. I'm going for black with orange accents. These things are hands down the ultimate road machines. Ferrari fans eat your hearts out and then bring 'em to the streets!!!

      I am second on the list at one of the top 20 dealers in the country. They say I have a 50/50 chance of receiving an RS. They are guaranteed only one but they think they could get as many as 3.

      The US will once again change the car, no car will be delivered with a roll bar, the Euro GT3 seats, or lightweight windows. Porsche is fighting this but the US Govt usually wins these battles.

      I hedged my bet and my white 2007 GT3 is due in early November. If I get an RS and get to choose the color it will be orange.
