There are few things more entertaining than watching a track-prepped Porsche being flogged around a well designed circuit and when Stuttgart decided to launch a minisite for their 997-based GT3 RS, they saw fit to put the gloriously orange tracker in its natural environment. The video allows the viewer to switch between a chase car view, an in car shot or a fender-mounted camera to catch all the action from a variety of angles. Additionally, you can see what kind of G-forces are acting on the vehicle as the GT3 RS makes its way around the Weissach circuit.

The 911 GT3 RS was shown in Paris, shedding more than 40 pounds from its predecessor's weight, even while equipped with a wider rear track and roll bar. The rear-mounted, 3.6-liter flat-six revs all the way to 8,400 RPM and produces 415 melodically mechanical horses.

The site is well worth a few minutes of your lunch break, but be sure to turn down the volume as the combination of instrumental background grooves and a rev-happy engine may irritate unenthusiastic coworkers.

      Now THAT'S a minisite.

      Very cool.

      My new favorite car of all time. The exhaust note, the look, the performance, it's incredible. I actually like the black on orange look, it's got the shock value of a green Murcie, but way cooler.

      That was a great mini-site, and the presentation of multiple cameras is a very cool idea. Even if everything isn't perfectly sync'ed up, it's pretty close, especially for the first time I've ever seen it.

      Big Kudos to Porsche for the car and the site.

      Whew... Someone pass me a handy-wipe. I need a cigarette.

      As suggested, I watched this video over lunch, and it is great. I don't know who is driving, but there are a couple of interesting points where the car gets a bit out of control. Being able to swtich between the 3 cameras is nice, but it would be interesting to have a stock 911 on the track at the same time, along with a Rabbit, all for comparison.
