The video you will see here is not exactly an in-depth review. In fact, the narrator hardly says much of anything at all. The reason for that is that sometimes you just don’t need to say much of anything. When the subject is the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, all you need is the sound of the engine, some shots of the car being driven fast and some shots of the big, stupid grin on the driver’s face. Because for anyone who isn’t planning to use the GT3 RS to compete in motorsports (and there’s the 2013 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR for that), it’s really just a machine that makes big, stupid grins.

If you’re interested in the numbers for this car, you’ve probably read them all already. You’re prepared to debate the relative merits of the PDK and electric power steering and you’ve probably got some very definite opinions about the styling. But it is statistically unlikely that you know just how happy it can make you to sit behind the wheel of a Type 911 GT3 RS at speed, and this video will attempt to convey that joy.

A well made sports car should be more about this kind of sheer joy than anything else. Race car owners can worry about tenths of a second to 60 and skidpad numbers, but for those who live with these cars every day, the big grin is far more important. Fortunately, the 911 GT3 RS does well in both numbers and grins, but you’ll only get one side of that from this video.
