This beast was developed for the track, and that’s where it belongs most of the time.
However, we did put it through its paces through an almost 10,000 mile endurance race across the US x2 and it performed flawlessly! Low slung and stiffly suspended, the RS (short for German Renn Sport or “racing sport”) responds instantly to steering inputs and clings to the line you choose with slot-car-like tenacity.
It is a car that turns in with laser precision and then carves arcs of uncorrupted geometry. We tested the giant Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes to their max when we pushed the car to over 176 mph in Utah and it kept up with us all through the 19-days of bounding, sliding, wailing, screeching, and tushie wagging we did in our marathon cross-country race.
