The Porsche 911 GT3 RS comes out with a new package paying homage to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7
The 1970s Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is a performance icon as it is the most powerful version of the first generation 911 and fitted with a ducktail spoiler, which would become an icon in its own right .
Porsche is now paying homage to the model with an all-new package for the 911 GT3 RS. Available exclusively in the United States, the Tribute to Carrera RS group has been previewed by a thinly veiled concept this summer, and features unique styling details inside and out.
Starting with the exterior, eyes will immediately be drawn to the Python Green accents which contrast the white paint job and draw inspiration from the Viper Green flourishes that were available on the original model. There is an assortment of green components from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, including mirror caps and magnesium wheels. They are joined by matching side graphics, fender detailing and GT3RS badge on the rear bumper.
In addition to being imposing, the model was fitted with gloss black brake calipers and the Weissach package, which adds an assortment of carbon fiber components.
The green theme continues in the cabin as customers will find contrast stitching on the seats, dashboard, steering wheel and door panels. Green contrast stitching is also found on the center console lid, where it is joined by an embossed ‘RS’ logo. White painted keys and illuminated door sill plates with “Tribute to Carrera RS” lettering complete the highlights.
While most packages are exclusively car-focused, Porsche went the extra mile and included an assortment of other goodies. Among them is a Porsche Design watch with a “Python Green winding rotor designed to resemble the car’s magnesium wheel, and a strap with matching stitching and a white bezel.”
Buyers will also receive a custom car cover, custom license plate frames, key caps in Python Green, and valve stem caps with RS script in Python Green. Another cool bonus is a pair of 1:43 scale models featuring the new GT3 RS as well as the classic 1973 Carrera RS.
Porsche hasn’t stopped there, as buyers will be enrolled in an NFT program that will reward them with “digital badges signifying their participation in major Porsche racetracks and events.” They will also receive graphics of physical vehicles, so that their achievements are visible both in the real and virtual world.
The Tribute to Carrera RS package will be available to customers with an existing 911 GT3 RS allocation and will increase the price of the model to $312,550 before factoring in the $1,450 delivery charge. That’s pretty steep, but the standard 911 GT3 RS with the Weissach package will set you back $262,050 alone.
