Porsche 911 GT3 RS Tribute to Carrera RS Package: A $314k Limited Edition with Scale Models and NFTs

 

Quite the mouthful, this limited edition 911. Porsche celebrates the 50th anniversary of its most powerful variant of the first generation 911 with a US-exclusive white-and-green GT3 RS that includes a bunch of other goodies.

 

 

The 911 GT3 RS costs $223,800 on its own, so it’s $90k worth of extras. This tribute is painted in white, with Python Green as its secondary color. It is worth noting that it also has the extra bits from the Weissach package, like the carbon bits on the fenders. The green is a throwback to the Viper Green of the original. The magnesium wheels, RS valve stem caps, and wing mirror caps are painted in green. The side graphics and spoiler details are no exception, with a small decal on the rear bumper, right below the Porsche lettering. It also has custom license plate frames.

 

 

On the interior, the green continues with the stitching on the seats, dash, steering wheel, and other spots. It also features an embossed RS logo on the console lid. Finally, the keys are painted in white, with door sills that spell out “Tribute to Carrera RS”. Other than that, it still uses the same naturally aspirated 4.0-liter inline six, which makes 518 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque.

 

 

The extras are quite plentiful: you get a cover for the car that has the same decals on the side and wheels that match the actual ones. There’s the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 RS watch, which matches the rims’ styling, complete with green stitching on the straps and white outer rings, with a Python Green rear rotor. Two 1:43 models are included: a 2023 GT3 RS and the original 1973 Carrera RS. No pictures are shown for these extras (bummer), but we assume they’re painted in the same motifs. Lastly, an NFT program. Owners of the special edition can gain digital badges and physical vehicle graphics for attending Porsche-related events; and we assume owners will be chasing the latter. Or not.

 

 

Frankly, it looks more like a collab with Xbox, and considering the fact that the GT2 RS was Forza Motorsport 7’s cover car, it’s not far-off. Though we’d argue the white-and-red is more of a symbolistic palette for the old 911, it’s a funky color that works for the current gen.
