2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS - click above image to watch the video

Yesterday brought news of the new and improved 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. More power from a bigger engine, shorter throws from its six-speed manual gearbox, rejiggered PASM and a wider track for better handling and a don't-eat-the-brown-acid paint scheme all conspire to produce what is no doubt the most track killingest naturally-aspirated 911 ever.

And now we have video! We must say that at speed doing what a GT3 RS is supposed to do, the infantile neon pink graphics don't look nearly so silly. Still, the lipstick on a porker has got to go. Also, mad bonus props for the cantilevered piece of sculpture holding up the carbon fiber wing. Plenty of B-roll after the jump.

      @ Tom:
      "If you want styling that changes every other generation, go somewhere else"

      Good Lord! Poor little Porsche fan boys, so....... so........ brainwashed!
      Excuse me but if I'm buying a 2010 whatever, I don't want it to look like a 1985 whatever......no matter how "classic/iconic" the styling is.

      So brainwashed...................

      Buying a new Porsche is like going out with an old girlfriend that you haven't seen in a decade, only she hasn't aged a day.

      The thing that is so great about the current Porsche's is the fact that you can drive it all day like a hooligan... then go pick up the groceries... and make the omelet inside the grocery bag on the way home!

      And you can repeat this process, day in, day out for 5 years before they start giving you grief.

      I don't much care for the other 911s but I love the GT3 and the GT3 RS.
      Fantastic cars.

      You sure have a broad definition of "pink"...
        • 5 Years Ago
        your pink is Porsche's traditional "Guards Red" according to the GT3 RS minisite.


        I'll take mine in Gray with Guards Red. drool..

      according to Porsche's website, the graphics/accents aren't neon pink - they are Guards Red, which give this an infinitely higher bad*ss quotient...

      It's like music to my ears.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Speaking of music...I can't WAIT until they post the version with that awesomely fantastically magnificent Euro-pop-techno crap! That will just make it sooo much betterer. rer. Otherwise it was kinda dull...no Gumpert anyway.

        :-)

        Like music to your ears, that video was brilliant with the well composed soundtrack. Much better than most modern car videos with the trash soundtracks to accompany the brilliant cars, and end up taking the whole video down with them.

        Simple, but great. Thanks for a real car video :).

      I LOVE it as long as its moving, otherwise the lettering, colors and wing make it look like some kids Honda ricer made with parts from Pep Boys. Damn you Porsche.

      It would great it wasn't stretched to widescreen..

      Yeah, the styling for that car is so adolescent. Looks like a Honda Civic, like a poster above stated. Not classy at all.

      Sure does go fast, though!

      I think the point of this car is to take an existing model and make it a little more crazy than it was before, not to come up with an all-new model. So this is fine as it is, in that sense. The Porsche philosophy seems to be to make the quintessential car in the classes their models fall in. The 911 is the quintessential sports car, especially because of it's design. But in terms of exterior design, the Cayenne is definitely not the quintessential SUV. It should look more like a land rover or land cruiser or something. Boxy. Big. Not sleek, like a sports car, or like a woman's SUV (like the smallish-sized ones from acura and lexus). The Panamera's design is a little more understandable...though I too think they could have changed things up a little more. BUT, the 911 should stay as the 911. The design is great. They should continue tweaking it as they go, and continue with their range of variants of it. But I think they should redesign the Cayenne and Panamera (and maybe the Boxster - especially the back end), and make these models the quintessential entries of their classes.
