Porsche $250,000 GT3 Racecar Is Too Hot for the Street

Sitting over there in the racetrack pits is a $140,000 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, one of the most fearsome street-legal sports cars in the world. Yet it sits unused and unloved, like a child’s castaway toy.

That’s because I’m strapped into this: a Porsche GT3 Cup car, which can’t be legally driven on streets. Rather it’s found competing in some of the world’s most hardcore racing events. It won this year’s Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona in the GT class.
