Last year, Porsche shocked the automotive world with the 992 generation 911 GT3 RS announcement. As the pinnacle 911 model that embodies lightweight design, track-inspired aerodynamics, and optimum performance, the 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS stands out as a timeless fan favorite for any passionate owner and enthusiast. On the newest episode of Jay Leno's Garage, Porsche factory driver and brand ambassador Patrick Long brings the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS for Jay's ultimate test drive. The two fuel-driven fanatics do a full walkaround of the road-legal race car, explaining all the cooling and aero attributes derived directly from Porsche's motorsport program. Patrick's love for the brands expands far outside the race track, where he is the proud founder of the popular Luftgekühlt air-cooled Porsche car show.
With a true passion for vintage Porsche examples, Patrick explains the 911 GT3 RS's similarities and evolution over the first Carrera RS 2.7 from 1972. The most impressive aspect of the new GT3 RS is the active rear swan neck wing that features the same DRS settings as a Formula 1 car. Having discussed the in's and out's of the 518 horsepower 4.0L Naturally-Aspirated 6-Cylinder, Jay gets behind the wheel to drive Porsche's track weapon on the open road. Although its appearance and sound scream track car, Porsche developed the new 911 GT3 RS to be one of the most versatile platforms in its fleet. Updated technology makes its transition from daily driver to weekend racer rather effortless. Needless to say, Jay Leno's time using the PDK transmission to reach the Porsche GT3 RS's 8500rpm redline was more than enjoyable, especially with Patrick Long by his side.
