So we'll go from the mildly ridiculous to the absolutely sublime. The Panda Sport, with its whopping 100 HP, is certainly a compact runabout we'd like to see Stateside, but watching it spend time on the tarmac is akin to a dachshund running around a greyhound track.

As if the Porsche 911 GT3 RS needed any more promotion, the ass-engined junkies of Stuttgart put together a beautiful piece of hi-def cinema, starring the GT3 in its natural environment. If the sound of a 3.6-liter flat six isn't enough to make the Panda tremble in its tires, we're sure the RS' 415 HP and 8,400 RPM redline will cause the lil' hatch to scurry of the track, pissing coolant.

We can't embed the video here, so follow the 'read' link for the clip.

      Awesome video, a Porsche captured from all angles. This video would've been 1/2 as exciting with those fancy little paddles on the steering wheel. Goes to show you that "there is no substitute" for an M/T.

      OK... great movie, but I hate the little nose spoiler in front of the bonnet on the GT's it makes the car to friendly/happy looking. This is a mean car, that is very demanding on the driver (trust me try driving a high HP 911 on a track the modern ones are better but still can be un forgiving) it does not fit.

      While we are at it, the rear bumper and spoiler integration looks horrible. Of all the rear bumpers put on 911's this may be the ugliest. The rear spoiler looks horrid. You cannot tell me that aerodynamics created that whole mess.

      All said I would not mind one as a track car, to stiff for daily driving...

      Does anyone know how to grab that video?

      I found the link for the FLV video

      http://files.porsche.com/all/media/flash/videos/997gt3rs/fairstrailer/german/large.flv

      But i can not seem to be able to properly convert the format to avi or mpeg or anything else.

      They clearly had a good look at how cars are filmed in Top Gear. The use of Gradient blue filter and camera positions is very similar, or are we going to see this on Top Gear's next season (when will it ever start???).

      Fooman, if all you care about is how "pretty" your car is, sell your New Beetle and get a Solstice already.

      The 911GT3RS is for real drivers who hit the track, not poseur-pansies.

      Beautiful. Some Top Gear-quality editing work.
