Porsche 911 GT3 RS First Drive Review : The Force Awakens

Silverstone, UK – When the invite from Porsche came some months back, we were told, “You’ll probably miss the Singapore Grand Prix… but it’s for the launch of the 911 GT3 RS.” Naturally, there’s only one answer to an invitation like that.

If you’re wondering how we replied, maybe you’re not as big a petrolhead as you think you are!

After all, the next best thing to watching 20 cars tear around a F1 race-track… is actually tearing around a F1 race-track yourself!

And that’s how we found ourselves at the home of the British Grand Prix, the Silverstone Circuit, some 11000km away from the 2022 Singapore F1 Grand Prix with Porsche’s latest, meanest track-ready machine, the (Type 992) 911 GT3 RS.

2022 is the 50th Anniversary of the ‘RS’, with a lineage that can be traced back to the Carrera RS 2.7 in 1972 (yes, yes, we know production started in 1973) all the way through to the 964 Carrera RS and then to the last of the air-cooled 911s, the 993 Carrera RS.
