The RSR is obviously much faster around the track than the GT3 as it is lighter, has more power, and is running race rubber versus street rubber. Yes, the Pilot Sport Cups on the GT3 are a soft compound but as much as a dedicated racing slick. We wish they used the GT3 RS 4.0 as it actually does use the RSR crank and it is slightly lighter as well. It would have made things much more interesting but even the standard 997.2 GT3 goes to show how close it is to the real deal.
Don't take our word for it, see what Porsche driver Patrick Long had to say: “Usually, when I go from race car to road car on any given racetrack, I’m used to having to adjust quite a bit. In the GT3, it’s very easy to just jump in and go flat-out. As soon as I hit the racetrack, I’m not really changing my braking zones, I’m really taking the same gears through the corners…it’s a pretty seamless transition.”
Awesome car that offers a race car experience for the street? You bet.
