For US customers, Porsche is bringing the new GT3 RS closer to the legendary 1972 Carrera RS 2.7 with a design package. The GT3 RS show car in Pebble Beach provided a first foretaste. Now there is a price too.
With the new GT3 RS based on the 992 , Porsche has trimmed the sports car even more radically for use on the racetrack. With the new edition, the two-seater has of course become even more powerful and even more dynamic. Everything as the GT3 RS customers wanted it.,
Porsche USA is now going one better. With a GT3 RS show car for Pebble Beach, the US branch of the sports car manufacturer is showing what an upcoming special model will look like exclusively for the US market. The design package developed by Porsche USA creates a visual link to the legendary Carrera RS 2.7 from 1972, which is extremely popular in the USA. As announced by Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America (PCNA), the show car will become the extremely limited Carrera RS Package, which will be offered through Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. The design package is also intended to celebrate the 50th birthday of the RS 2.7.,
Based on the old RS, Porsche is coloring the rims and exterior mirrors of the new GT3 RS in Phyton Green. In addition, the flanks are adorned with green GT3 RS design stripes. In contrast to the white paintwork, numerous other elements on and in the GT3 RS also have green paintwork. The rear lights and the third brake light are also partially colored green. A fine white line runs around the headlights. Green contrast stitching and white applications pick up the color scheme again in the cockpit. In addition, Porsche donated new door sills.
