The Porsche 911 GT3 is a high performance version of the Porsche 911 sports car primarily intended for racing. It is a line of high-performance models, which began with the 1973 911 Carrera RS. The GT3 is named after the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Group GT3 class in which it was designed to compete. More than 14,000 911 GT3 cars have been produced. The GT3 has had a successful racing career in the one-make national Porsche Carrera Cup series, and the international Porsche Supercup. It has won championship and endurance races, including the GT class of the American Le Mans Series seven times, first overall in the 24 Hours of Daytona, and first overall at the 24 Hours Nürburgring six times.
In February 2006, Porsche revealed the first generation 997 GT3, commonly now known as the 997.1 GT3. Porsche also offered an RS version of the 997 GT3. In common with its predecessors, it provided a homologation model for use in a range of racing series. The 997 GT3 RS was released in Europe in October 2006 and in North America in spring 2007.
The Porsche 911 997 GT3 RS is 20 kg (44 lb) lighter than the 997 GT3, weighing in at 1,375 kg (3,031 lb). This weight-saving was achieved by the use of an adjustable carbon fiber wing, a plastic engine cover, and a lightweight plastic rear window. The weight savings gives the 997 GT3 RS corresponding engine power to curb weight ratio of 300 hp (220 kW) per tonne. For 2010, the second generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS (known as 997.2 GT3 RS) received an additional 35 hp (26 kW) due to a new 3.8-liter flat-six, bringing total power output up to 444 hp (331 kW).
From 2011 until 2013, this die-cast representation featured a separate rear wing made of plastic. In 2015 the model was retooled and included the wing as part of the metal body.
