Porsche never offered something like this from the factory.
The 991.2 generation 911 Speedster was the closest Porsche ever came to building a roofless GT3. With the same 4.0-liter flat-six producing 502 horsepower, it was essentially a GT3 with a droptop. Porsche has never taken the next step to create a convertible GT3 RS. An aftermarket tuner came close back in 2018 with a GT3 RS-style Targa model, and now another company has created something just as cool.
Based on a 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, this 991.1 generation car was turned into a GT3 RS replica by California-based Wicked Motor Works. This is a one-of-a-kind creation that's now up for auction on Pcarmarket.
Wicked Motor Works spent more than $200,000 on the conversion, including GT3 RS-style louvered fenders, rear wing, air ducts, center-exit exhaust, SportDesign mirrors, and carbon fiber accents. The exterior is finished in a custom Rosso Red shade with custom yellow brake calipers sitting behind staggered HRE wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
Inside, the car features a custom interior with black leather and red Alcantara. Though this car looks like a GT3 RS, it retains the luxury features from the Carrera S, such as adaptive sport seats, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, the Sport Chrono Package, and Bose premium audio.
When it was new, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet stickered at $128,000. This build looks extremely cool, but it's a case of all show and no go. It packs a stock powertrain, meaning a 3.8-liter naturally aspirated flax-six producing 400 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque going out through a seven-speed PDK transmission. It's far off the pace of a real GT3 RS, but 0-60 mph only takes around 4.3 seconds. The car is currently up for auction with only 19,266 miles on the odometer, with the selling dealership located in Jackson, Mississippi. We are interested to see how much it sells for.
