There is no denying that our favourite track day car is one for the more wealthy track day drivers, but the stunningly engineered Porsche 911 GT3 RS is worth every penny. The combination of accurate handling, interactive controls and a PDK gearbox makes it a delight. And while many might think that it's merely a tarted up version of the standard 911 GT3, the truth is that the RS is improved in every way, and it's one of the most responsive and engaging cars of any description.

Since its launch in 1999, the Porsche 911 GT3 has been the benchmark against which every other track-focused car has been rated, and the RS versions have simply built on that breadth of ability. There are more powerful, more expensive 911s, but the GT3 represents the sports car at its purest and most intense. In fact, all four generations of GT3 RS arguably rank alongside 1973’s legendary 2.7 RS in the annals of greatest 911s.

Porsche 911 review 

Powering the latest Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a screaming 4.0-litre flat-six, which when combined with a well engineered chassis gives a track car which you could easily suffer on a daily basis, but will still run rings around most of the competition on track. Not surprising really, when you consider that it has 513bhp and 469Nm of torque on tap.
