Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997.2) | Rise & Drive

The GT3 dynasty is 20 years old. PH celebrates in the best way possible...

By PH Staff / Sunday, August 11, 2019

Communicative, emotive, engaging, exhilarating - there are many qualities claimed for the Porsche's 997.2 GT3 RS. From its minimalist cabin and relentless pursuit of weight saving to its perfect proportions and feelsome steering, Porsche enthusiasts have multiple reasons to consider the model to be the pinnacle of the RS lineage.

To find out exactly what all the fuss is about - and because the concept of a GT3 variant turns 20 this summer - we made Dan P set his alarm for some ungodly hour and sent him to Brecon Beacons aboard Porsche's heritage car. With perfect weather laid on, what better backdrop is there for discussing how exactly the 997 GT3's track prowess translates into a superlative roadgoing experience?
