If you want to make 500 horsepower without turbos or nitrous oxide, you will need exponential time and money. Unless you are a Porsche engineer. If Ferdinand could see how far his cars have come, he would be at a loss for words.
The latest 911 GT3 RS was a limited run of naturally aspirated dominance. The flat-six engine is 4.0 liters and rated at 500 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque. It makes amazing power from idle to 9,000 rpm, and it does it in a very linear way.
All unnecessary weight was removed to make the ultimate track car. It has carbon fiber door panels with a simple pull strap instead of handles. In traffic, the solid motor mounts will remind you that you could be on the track, lapping everyone with the A/C on and Bluetooth-enabled blasting your favorite music. The 7-speed PDK is as subtle as a songbird and as brutal as grapeshot. RS is RennSport, which translates to “run sport” or racing in English. Being the ultimate all-motor 911, Michael Fux had to add it to his collection of world-class collectibles.
A quick glance of the world’s resource for exotic cars for sale, duPont REGISTRY, will clearly show that the market for pre-owned examples is hotter than ever. For the foreseeable future, the top-level non-turbo 911 will be a GT3 without the fancy body or the incredible aero package. So if you want to experience what 700 lbs of downforce feels like, this Lava Orange example is a brilliant way to do so. It has only seen 285 miles since new, making it a pristine example of one of Porsche’s finest. However, this 911 GT3 RS is just one member of the breathtaking Fux collection that will be the centerpiece of Mecum’s Kissimmee auction.
