I want a GT3 RS 4.0 so bad it hurts. Now, where did I leave my Lotto ticket?
Stephen Mysko Apr 28, 2011
Also the gt500 gets it's power from a supercharged 5.4L v8. The Italian/German brands u mentioned make smaller displacement 4.5L v8's and 5.2liter v10s that make over 550+hp. And there both naturally aspirated which makes them that much more amazing
Stephen Mysko Apr 28, 2011
@jack my list of what makes a supercar is my own opinion of course. So I guess u could argue it
Stephen Mysko Apr 28, 2011
jack amustang can't be a supercar cause it just doesn't play the roll of one. It has power but it can't handle nearly as well as a suprcar. Also it doesn't look like one, have a big pricetag or have that wow factor that suprcars give u when u seethem
Ryan Todd Apr 28, 2011
What Is the super snake then...
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
Mustang as a supercar? Nah
Jack Higgins Apr 28, 2011
Someone answer me this, Why can ford pump out 540+hp in a mustang, but Audi, Lambo, nor Ferrari pump out as much? I know they prefer lighter cars, but still. It's supposed to be a "supercar".
Sam Dorland Apr 28, 2011
Exploder wasn't a typo man
David Bright Apr 28, 2011
Ford exploder. Sounds entertaining
Taylor J. Blake Apr 28, 2011
My ford exploder has a 4.0 L It has 210 hp and sucks.
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
*Talkin bout the Porsche 911
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
Yes! I love Porsches
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
*span The Aston V12 has made less than 400 (don't remember exactly), 400, 450, 470, 510, and 525 respectively
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
@Cullen Ever consider preference? The current 5.0 is making 420, 440, 540, and probably more different power outputs. The 5.4 over a spam of a few years has been making 380, 500, 540, 550, and 750 respectively
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
Awesome! It deserves more power!
Jonathan Holland Apr 28, 2011
Don't forget the horrid Chrysler Pacifica xD
Michael Ioia Apr 28, 2011
You can't compare the Jeep 4.0 to this Porsche 4.0. The designs are totally different.
Ricardo Mulinari Apr 28, 2011
Stronger and lighter-- perfect
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Apr 28, 2011
4.0 litres is a very rare number... Good to see Porsche being unique
Lukas Lebs Jun 03, 2011
Wtf is up with porche having a sentance for its name porche 911 gt3 rs 4.0 ??? That is not needed!!!
Ekarat Anusatsiriporn May 29, 2011
911 family is the best car ever I love Porsche , I'm a fan :D
Kenny Cavallo Apr 29, 2011
Beautiful, pure Porsche
Nisrit Dhakal Apr 28, 2011
I like the new design (sarcasm)
Kenneth Williams Apr 28, 2011
They've had led's for a while now
Bilal Saeed Apr 28, 2011
I swear, if they put led lights on any more cars, I'm going to fill out!
Shaylen Kumar Patel Apr 28, 2011
Like they say if it aint broke don't fix it. It's the 911 motto
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
Oh yeah awesome-mobile takin a curve like nutin
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
They've made 1000s and done well, so there's going to be 1000s more :)
Ibrahim Mahjoub Apr 28, 2011

Francis Edward Ayala Apr 28, 2011
Would love to have this photo as a poster!
Michael Palazzo Apr 28, 2011

Zac Shaw Apr 28, 2011

@Rory Can't fix what isn't broken and still sells better than just about any other expensive sports car
Anton Chebanenko Apr 29, 2011
Porsche is not an ugly car Nd they stay the same cuz of tradition
Rory Scanlan Apr 29, 2011
Porsche is not the best automaker and they also make one of the ugliest cars they haven't really changed it since the first one
David Bright Apr 28, 2011
Haha, a "complete remodel" from Porsche. I'll bet it looks exactly the same
Ori Haviv Apr 28, 2011
Yea but a turbo and some ecu mods in this would shit on the gt2
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
Yea power isn't everything in a 911
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
@Ori That's what the Turbo, Turbo S, GT2, and GT2 RS are for
Ken Madison Apr 28, 2011
Toyota racing.... Such a joke.
Ori Haviv Apr 28, 2011
That is bills. I'll get a Ferrari or lambo over that. But then again sticking a turbo to that 4.0 six would be nice
Garrett Carpenter Apr 28, 2011
It seems that every auto maker is bragging that their cars are "street legal racecars".
Andy Rogers May 01, 2011
@Zamiyaad It would suck even on a 6minute journey on normal roads
Daniel J. Sutter Apr 28, 2011
I love the way their cars are photographed and edited.
Jeriot Dowland Apr 28, 2011
One day I wanna get one. One day
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
Yea it's stiff suspension would result in a pain in the ass for a 6 hours or more journey
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
@Moses Not really. This car would suck on a long journey. It's much more of a hardcore track day car
Kieran Mistry Apr 28, 2011
On the hood of the car, they took the idea of the stripe from the the 430 scuderia
Kaigan Viner Apr 28, 2011
I agree with Patrick. My new favorite Porsche
Patrick Kennedy Apr 28, 2011
New favorite 911. They didn't go over board and they kept it sporty and sleek. Good job Porsche
Moses Gayles Apr 28, 2011
This is why we dream! This car is what GT really means!
Michael Palazzo Apr 28, 2011
very sporty, I love it.
Vincent Butler Apr 28, 2011
Body needs to change already.
Kai Andrew Carlson Apr 28, 2011
Ummm what?...amazing car, sad to see it compared to a beetle, even if the beetle is nice.
Jeriot Dowland Apr 28, 2011
If you saw a beetle driving down the street theres no way you'd mistake it for porsche.
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
This is far far away from the original beetle.
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
Still doesn't look anything like the Beetle in detail. Only Porsche that looks very similar is the 356 to the original Beetle
Luis A Martinez Apr 28, 2011
Pc, Porsche owners that go to the track really don't care about how u feel about their wheel arches they just care about how their car goes like hell!!
Ian Richard Hendry Apr 28, 2011
The door straps would be cooler if there wasn't a huge door pull and arm rest just below it. I'd chop those before a handle.
Sam Dorland Apr 28, 2011
+1 for proper transmissions
Rithhin Jawahar Sceptic Apr 28, 2011
And yeah you apparently have to pay extra for the regular door handles to be replaces with those gay straps!! :S
Jeriot Dowland Apr 28, 2011
Why would your hand be in the strap?
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 28, 2011
That lil red strap is to reduce weight from a normal door handle
Andy Rogers Apr 28, 2011
@Eric You mean that little red strap? That replaces door handles. If you're hand is in there when it rolls over, then you must have some sort of door handle replacement strap fetish to do that
Taylor J. Blake Apr 28, 2011
Typical Porsche gauges. But that's ok. I like em.
Eric Martin White Apr 28, 2011
Is that a trap pull to open the door? What the hell.. What If the car flips and someone's arm/hand is in it and the door flies off? Safety flaw.
Andy Rogers May 01, 2011
"Only" 500hp? And in something lightweight. An Ariel Atom 500 "only" has 500hp too
Vincent Butler Apr 28, 2011
220,000+k for a super car with only 500hp? How pathetic.
Vincent Butler Apr 28, 2011
Another over priced super car
Drew Wa Kleyweg Apr 28, 2011
cale u seem like u love this car so much
