Over the years it is fair to say that Porsche has diversified from its core sports car product. Today they make 4X4’s, luxury saloons and soon a crossover. However, just because they have branched out doesn’t mean that they have forgotten about their origins. The German company have a deep racing history that runs from Grand Prix to Le Mans; all their technological leaps have in many ways been influenced by racing. This is clear in the fantastic new 911 GT3 RS as the freshly launched CUP variant is near identical.
These slim differences aren’t just down to strict FIA rules and regulation but because of the firm’s bloodline that stems from racing and runs all the way to the road. The CUP is powered by the very same 3.8 litre flat-six that produces 450BHP. This is just the latest in a long line of CUP GT3’s that have become the world’s bestselling race cars and other than a few aerodynamic advancements as well as a little mechanical jiggery-pokery the cars are in assents the same. The latest incarnation fully prepared for competition racing will set you back a reasonable £94,600.
Deliveries start early next year.
