CARS: 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR

With a silhouette that hasn’t drastically changed in the last 40 years, the now iconic Porsche 911 shape has been mildly fettled for 2011.

As Porsche’s high performance, track-focused 911, has undergone some ‘under the skin’ updates. Rather than switching to the direct injection street 911, the RSR sticks with the old straight six  4.0L, but with an re-mapped ECU, re-engineered intake and exhaust, the result is a 1220kg porker producing 455bhp. Not as fast as the Ferraris and Vettes but the engine ‘out back’ traction is much better.

Outside the bodywork has also been revised, with the rear end taking cues from the latest roadgoing 911 to include new LED rear lights while the front wheels are wider than its predecessors. Prices are estimated at $500,000, but Porsche will gladly upgrade an 2010 model to the 2011 spec too.

Price: $500,000 est.
