Why should your track car have to be de-tuned when you hit the streets? If you’re looking for a car that will crush the competition at Buttonwillow, and still be pleasant while driving through LA traffic on the way to the office afterwards, then the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the car for you.

Packed with a 500-horsepower 4.0-liter six cylinder, this thing is basically a street-legal track car, and it’s got us grinning from ear to ear. On the track, the Porsche put up impressive numbers, running a 7-minute 20-second lap time at Nurburgring (9 seconds faster than the Carrera GT). It’s also good for a 0-62 mph time of 3.3 seconds, and a 0-120 mph sprint in just 10.9 seconds. The 2-door has been outfitted with a lightweight magnesium roof alongside a carbon fiber trunk lid and matching engine cover, improvements that help the Porsche shed 22 pounds from the last iteration of the GT3. Our only complaint is the lack of a true manual transmission (even if the PDK system shifts faster). The brand will be releasing the car to Porsche dealers around the world later this year, and will slap a $175,900 sticker price right on the window. But this is a car that’s worth every penny.
