As you probably know, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a fully-loaded track machine that lapped the Nordschleife in 6:49.328 minutes not too long ago, beating its own sibling by 10.6 seconds. And, it already has more than sufficient visual oomph factor, but if you also remember, the Style Porsche division revealed the Tribute to Carrera RS Package last August that attempts to take this oomph factor—visual or otherwise—up a notch. Well, the 911 GT3 RS Tribute to Carrera RS Package is now available for U.S. customers, carrying an MSRP of $312,550 (DPH fee not included). The base 911 GT3 RS starts at $223,800 (excluding DPH fee and gas guzzler tax) in the U.S., and if you do a quick math, the package itself appears to cost $88,750.
So, what do you get for all those extra dollars that could buy you a 718 Cayman S or a 718 Boxster S and still have plenty of money left for a party? Well, for starters, the package pays homage to 1972/1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. How about that for a pickup line? But as you know, the pickup lines don’t really work these days, and so, the tribute elements include Python Green elements such as the Magnesium wheels, mirror caps, side decals, and branding on the rear wing. The wing end plates feature an RS logo and an American flag icon next to it. As you can also probably see, the GT3 RS badging at the rear is also in Python Green.
On the inside, you get special illuminated door sills, an RS-branded central armrest, and Python Green contrast stitching. The $33,520 Weissach Package is included as standard here, which gets you—among many other things—a carbon fibre hood, a carbon fibre roof, Magnesium shift paddles, CFRP anti-roll bars front & rear, and CFRP coupling rods and underbody panel on the rear axle. The aforementioned forged Magnesium wheels are also part of the Weissach Package. Those who don’t fancy the exposed carbon roof and hood can ask Porsche to get them painted in body color at no extra cost.
There are not gonna be any other changes, obviously. I mean, the regular 911 GT3 RS already packs a 386 kW (525 metric hp) 4.0-litre naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine coupled with a 7-speed PDK.
