Porsche has also decided to enter a GT3 RS into the Nurburgring 24 Hour race, and ended up starting 42nd and finish a very respectable 13th. It has 911 features things like ceramic brakes, one piece bucket seats, adjustable aerodynamics and a rollcage, making it suitable for racing right off the showroom floor.
