Package available exclusively in the US market, includes unique aesthetics and accessories

Atlanta, Oct. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Porsche today announced a special package for the new 911 GT3 RS paying homage to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7, an icon among icons of the legendary 911 model line. Available exclusively for the US market, the Tribute to Carrera RS Pack includes unique exterior and interior styling cues, a unique Porsche Design watch, several accessories and, for the first time ever, an NFT program that are all unique to the package. .

Five decades ago, the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was the most capable 911 of its time and was available from the factory with Viper Green rims and graphics. The new Tribute to Carrera RS pack comes with white paint offset with Python Green accents and uses the Weissach-equipped 911 GT3 RS, and leather and Race-Tex interior as its starting point. Specially colored Exclusive Manufaktur elements include magnesium wheels painted in Python Green, brake calipers in High Gloss Black, as well as Python Green mirror caps, GT3 RS side graphics, special RS logo on the end plates fender with the American flag, the PORSCHE script on the underside of the fender and a GT3 RS graphic on the rear bumper.

The standard Weissach pack adds a significant amount of exposed carbon fiber both inside and out, along with chassis components in the same material.

Several special interior modifications also distinguish cars equipped with the package. These include deviated stitching in green, illuminated door sill guards with ‘Tribute to Carrera RS’ script, an embossed center console lid with ‘RS’ logo and white painted accents.

Customers also receive several special accessories, including a package-specific Porsche Design watch with a Python Green winding rotor designed to resemble the car’s magnesium wheel, and a strap with matching stitching as well as a white bezel. A custom car cover, scripted RS valve stem caps in Python Green, key caps in Python Green, custom license plate frames and a pair of 1:43 scale diecast cars; one being the 1973 Carrera RS and the other a replica of the new car, will also be included.

Finally, the package includes an NFT program that rewards customers with digital badges signifying their attendance at major Porsche racetracks and events. The NFT owner will also receive physical graphics of the vehicle to accompany the digital keepsake so that their achievements are visible both in the virtual world and to anyone in the presence of the car.

The Tribute to Carrera RS Pack will be available to order for customers with an existing 911 GT3 RS allocation through a Porsche dealer in the United States. Shipping, processing and handling fee of $1,450.

About the 2023 911 GT3 RS
The 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the most extreme 911 model yet. Its naturally aspirated 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine generates 518 hp and revs at 9,000 rpm. That power is channeled exclusively to the rear wheels via a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. Making extensive use of motorsport-derived aerodynamics, it generates over 900 lbs. of downforce at 124 mph and 1,895 lbs of downforce at 177 mph. It is also the first example of a 911 GT3 RS with active aerodynamics, a feature used to offer incredible levels of downforce, provide deceleration assistance by creating an air brake and reduce aerodynamic drag by providing a drag reduction system (DRS). All of this combined to recently allow the car to achieve a superb lap of 6:49.328 on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring.

About the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 from 1972 / 1973
Fifty years ago, the world knew the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 as Germany’s fastest sports car. It started as a homologation special and featured many technological innovations. It was the most powerful version of the first-generation 911, generating 210 hp at 6,300 rpm and 188 lb-ft. of torque at 5,100 rpm from its air-cooled flat-six developed by Hans Mezger and Valentin Schäffer.

A more powerful engine was only part of the story. Much like the new 911 GT3 RS, wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic science introduced technology never before seen in the 911. The ducktail, now as much a style icon as an element of function, was key to achieving stability at high speed. Not only did it unlock the ability to drive faster, it did so without experiencing any additional drag. In fact, it reduced the drag coefficient.
