Has this been done as a means of starting an engine before?

Porsche is also introducing another new option in 2010 for the GT3 RS, a lithium-ion battery. Delivered with the car and, when replacing the conventional lead-acid battery, it reduces the weight by more than 10 kg or 22 lb and is mainly intended for the track.

Porsche Offers Customization Options for GT3 and GT3 RS

STUTTGART, Germany — Porsche's Motorsport Division in Weissach has developed new lightweight components for the Porsche 911 GT3 and GT3 RS. All parts are fully track tested and reduce weight while providing a customized, more sporty exterior.

Porsche starts the kit off with carbon-fiber mirrors and a front air outlet that have new designs to reduce drag and increase airflow. In the rear, a spoiler lip on the rear wing and a ram air scoop in carbon fiber were added. A new center-exit two-pipe titanium exhaust system further cuts weight and offers a racing-carlike feature in which the tips turn bright blue when exposed to high temperatures.

The 19-inch titanium-colored second-generation wheels feature a central locking system complete with anodized red wheel bolts. Decorative wheel rim strips featuring the Porsche logo can be purchased in a number of different colors.

Porsche GT3 RS laps Ring

New Porsche 911 GT3 RS laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a rather quick time
By Chris Harris

Porsche loves the low key approach to Nordschleife time-attacks, and last week's session to see what the new 997 GT3 RS could manage was no exception.


Armed with a stopwatch, a crash hat, an RS and a sizeable pair of testicles, an unnamed Porsche test driver clocked a 7min33sec lap - that's seven seconds faster than the cooking GT3. He did this in some light traffic, and pulling data from earlier laps showed that the theoretical 'best lap' would have been 7m30s.

That compares to the Nissan GT-R’s 7m27.56s, while quicker lap records lie with the Gumpert Apollo (7m11.57s) and Radical SR8LM (6m48s), the latter a time that we help set a couple of months ago. Watch the video here.

Not that Porsche cares too much about the relative speed of the competition, or that the Corvette ZR1 and Nissan GT-R have all gone faster. I tried to coax them into making a few catty comments about the Americans and the Japanese, but it seems they've had enough of that banter.

There's one question I'd like answered though - what's the longevity of these road cars at such insane speeds. I mean, how many laps can a 1740kg GTR do sub-7m30s before the brakes melt and the tyres go pop? Likewise the 'Vette. I reckon we should push for a 4-lap challenge from now on. Were it possible, I reckon the Porsche might just get the job done.
