Porsche has released a pretty impressive video in which they explain the the evolution of the 2011 Carrera Cup GB race car for the new season, and its relationship to the 911 GT3 RS road car. Enjoy!

TheGT3 RS is powered by a 3.8 liter flat-six engine that delivers a total of 450 HP and 317 lb.-ft of torque, this means specific output of more than 118 bhp per litre from the six-cylinder, an extremely high figure for natural-aspiration technology. The can can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in seconds and can hit a top speed of 193 mph. Of course performance comes with a price: $133,750.

The Cup car carries the same engine setup, but weighs 170 kilos less than the RS road going car. It features a front spoiler lip that is 15 millimeters lower than the GT3 RS and a rear wing that is now 1.70 meters, up from the original 1.46 meters.

Now this one is definitely interesting. It is rather easy to turn a racing car into a road vehicle simply by stripping out the race components. But it is harder the other way around, since you will have to match the appropriate parts.
