A Porsche 911 GT3 RS (Type 991) has become viral on social media in a new accident video footage. The popular German supercar participated in the recent Zoute Grand Prix GT Tour in Belgium, in which it lost control at a sharp corner towards its left. The accident was relatively minor but it made Porsche enthusiasts around the world heart-broken.
The video begins with the rear-engine rear-wheel-drive car fast approaching from the straight with its naturally-aspirated flat-six singing with all its glory. While most Porsche models are going the turbocharged way, the GT3 and GT3 RS are the only NA cars available in the brand's portfolio.
But before the driver could realise that he was entering the corner way too fast, the momentum caused the track-focussed 911 to slide straight. Even though the driver slammed the brake, the entry-speed was too high for the car to be steered clear even while having four-wheel-steer.
Ultimately, the car ended up in a thick grass patch beside the corner. Slamming the brakes did help since the Porsche landed in the bushes rather gradually but the car got almost stuck.
A bystander rushed to the scene and asked the driver to move the car backwards. Luckily, the car could indeed go back with the bystander assisting it with a push. The moment the car got out, the driver just throttled it as if nothing has happened.
Of course, the accident was minor but left the car with a slightly-broken front bumper plus some Belgian grass as a souvenir. Even though no one has blamed the driver for the accident, some have praised his incredible ‘cool' of ripping the car even after the small mishap.
As you might know, this is the previous-generation 911 GT3 RS from the 991 series. The current 991.2 911 GT3 RS is even more track-focussed and has the same 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine but re-tuned. The latest GT3 RS makes 520bhp and 470Nm of torque and comes mated to a 7-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Thoughts On The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Crash Video
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a really capable supercar and is one of the best naturally-aspirated performance cars currently on sale. No matter how much a car is track-bred or technologically-advanced, there will be some instances in which manoeuvring it would require solely the skills of the driver. This is one such instance but had it been some normal car, things could've ended in a worse situation.
