We recently covered some pretty epic Porsche conversions and this one would fit right in. The 911 GT3 RS never had a cabriolet version, so you have to make one yourself. There are two ways to go about it. The first one involves taking a GT3 RS and chopping its roof off. The second way is to get a lesser 911 Cabriolet and slap the body panels from a GT3 RS. Obviously, the latter is much easier, which is why Wicked Motor Work from California did exactly that.

What you’re actually looking at is a Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S Convertible, with $200,000 spent on it to make it look like a 991 GT3 RS. To our knowledge, the car is currently a one-off and if you want something unique, the GT3 RS Cabriolet is currently for sale at PCarMarket.

According to the listing (and what we can see), all GT3 RS parts have been used for the conversion.

These include the front and rear bumpers, louvered front fenders, side skirts, rocker panels, exhaust diffuser, hood, rear wing, side air intakes, and all carbon fiber bits you’d normally find on a 991 GT3 RS.

As for the wheels and tires, the 991 features HRE wheels, 20-inch at the front and 21 at the back, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber.

This being pre-facelift 991 Carrera S Cabriolet, the engine is a 3.8-liter normally-aspirated flat-six with 400 horsepower and 325 pound-feet (440 Nm). This allows the drop-top 911 to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 3.8 seconds on its way to 187 mph (301 km/h). Having the GT3 RS body kit installed might alter these stats as it creates more downforce.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Cabriolet specifications
Engine 3.8-liter normally-aspirated flat-six
Power 400 HP
Torque 325 LB-FT
0 to 60 mph 3.8 seconds
Top Speed 187 mph

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
