2011 Porsche GT3 RS 4.0
Just when you thought Porsche couldn't squeeze any more power out of the naturally aspirated GT3 line they go ahead an shoehorn in the largest displacement motor ever in a production 911, a monster 4.0L flat 6 cylinder derived from the racing 911 GT3 RSR. That beast of a motor features forged pistons, titanium rods, and the same crank as the racecar. All that adds up to a crazy 500HP and 339TQ naturally aspirated!
With the help of carbon fiber, the car weighs just 2,998lbs and can scoot to 60mph in just 3.8 seconds on it's way to a top speed of 193mph. The only transmission available will be a 6 speed manual and just 600 examples of the RS 4.0 will be built at a cost of $185,000.
