Ultraviolet Porsche 911 GT3 RS Poses With Pink Wheels 11

Ultraviolet Purple is one of the wackiest colors offered by Porsche and works beautifully with the flowing design of the 911 GT3 RS. However, that doesn’t mean the paint scheme can’t be messed up with a set of wheels.

The latest project from ADV.1 Wheels, this GT3 RS has been equipped with ADV5.2 M. V2 Advanced Series wheels measuring 20×9.5 at the front and 21×12.5 at the rear. With a Brushed Pink and Gloss Clear finish, they’d worked nicely with Paris Hilton’s pink Bentley, but the same cannot be said about this 911.

For starters, pink and purple simply do not go well together in a car. Secondly, the bright yellow brake calipers and RS logos across the sports car further clash with the wheels, creating a mish-mash of really awkward proportions.

Fortunately, this GT3 RS isn’t beyond repair. In fact, all it needs is for the wheels to be resprayed black, silver or grey and the car would be returned to its former glory.

Porsche’s Next 911 GT3 RS Won’t Get A Manual ‘Box 9

The minds of diehard Porsche fans were blown when the carmaker re-introduced a manual transmission to the facelifted GT3. Unfortunately, the track-focused GT3 RS won’t follow suit.

Recently speaking with Car Advice about the possibility of offering new RS models with manual transmissions, the head of Porsche GT’s road car development programme, Andreas Preuninger, said it won’t happen.

“RS means Renn Sport, which means it has to be quick on the track, that it’s all about fast times on the track, and that means the PDK.

“The PDK has advantages on the track that can’t be beaten by a manual, and the ones who prefer the manual transmission are not typically the track rats as we call them, but they are those who like to enjoy their cars on the normal public roads. I would say a GT2 RS with a manual option would have a four or five percent share of the market, we couldn’t justify that,” he revealed.

As disappointing as this is, the popularity of the new GT3 with the manual transmission should ensure such vehicles remain in Porsche’s line-up for quite some time.

According to Preuninger, the carmaker believes approximately 30 per cent of 991.2 911 GT3s built will be equipped with the six-speed manual instead of the PDK. By comparison, approximately 23 per cent of 2016 Corvettes were equipped with traditional stick shifts, proving just how many driving enthusiasts are Porsche customers.
