Time Waster of the Day: Porsche 911 GT3 RS Mini Site

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.
