Porsche unveils 911 GT3 RS

Porsche 911 GT3 just not hot enough for ya? With the demise of the GT Carrera, it might be of interest to Porschephiles that the automaker has unveiled an even hotter version of the 977-based GT3 dubbed... wait for it... the 911 GT3 RS. Well, for the European market, at least... something that we're not happy about over on this side of the Pond. Porsche likes to think of it as its purest street-legal race car out there, but we think of it as BADASS, with its exclusive close-ratio six-speed transmission and weight savings of 44 lbs. The less-is-more dictum sees the GT3's naturally-aspirated 3.6L six-cylinder pounce on 60 mph in 4.2 seconds from a dead stop. It might be street legal on the outside, but on the inside, it's all race car -- roll cage, racing harness for the driver, fire extinguisher, and alacantra-clad racing seats.

The new RS will be available in four colors -- Black, Silver, Orange or Green, sporting either black or orange wheels depending on the exterior. Check out the company's new microsite for the hot-shoe here.

We've got dibs.
