The GT3 was the most track oriented version of the naturally-aspirated 911, and the GT3 RS was just a little more track-focused than the standard GT3. Power was the same as the stock GT3 at 381 hp, but the suspension has been given stiffer springs and dampers, and the weight has been reduced thanks to a carbon fiber hood and rear wing. Even the rear window is strong and lightweight polycarbonate instead of glass.
