Just its name is enough to make other sports cars tremble in their boots and now it is even faster. The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS builds on the success of past GT3 RS models. It is faster and yet in a turbocharged world it continues to use a naturally aspirated flat-six (and there was much rejoicing).

For those that can pay the price (and it is up there), the 991.2 GT3 RS provides a track focused machine that can also be driven on the road. When we say track focused we mean track focused. A look on the inside will tell you all you need to know with the lack of back seats and the full bucket seats with carbon fiber reinforced backrests. Door opening loops and reduced sound deadening help enforce that this is a car made for a single purpose.

A few days ago we wrote about how the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR could potentially position a replacement for the 911. The rear-engined 911 is the car that the German performance car maker is best known for, but it has a layout that is less than ideal for handling. When looking at Porsche’s latest models the GT4 and Boxster Spyder represent the biggest challenge to the king thanks to their 991 sourced flat-six engines.

While neither the Spyder or GT4 are the cheapest Porsches that you can currently buy new, they are both more affordable than the 911 – although not by much. Both also have potential to be better performers than the base 911 Carrera. But what if the folks in Stuttgart did decide to replace the rear-engined car that has been with us for over 50 years now? Would you purchase a 718 Boxster or Cayman that had the same specs and quality as the 911, but with a mid-engine layout and for a higher price?
