A GOOD DAY OUT

These are some of the other Porsche mod­els we drove on the day

Car (South Africa) - - PRESENT -

1972 2.7 RS Tour­ing

A bucket-list mo­ment. In­stantly recog­nis­able via its duck­tail rear spoiler, the 2.7 RS feels both won­der­fully del­i­cate in its work­ings, yet still de­cep­tively fast thanks to its light­weight con­struc­tion and 154 kw on tap.

1992 Car­rera RS

Clearly built to favour track use, the 191 kw RS is tricky to drive in mod­ern ev­ery­day con­di­tions be­cause of its heavy steer­ing and snug rac­ing seats. Won­der­ful straight-line ac­cel­er­a­tion, though.

2003 996 GT3 RS

Tested in the April 2004 is­sue of CAR, few cars feel as grumpy in traf­fic and then so will­ing and, in­deed, grate­ful for be­ing driven as hard as pos­si­ble around a set of cor­ners.

2018 GT2 RS Weis­sach Pack­age

One word: bru­tal. Ev­ery­thing about the GT2 RS, from the way it looks to its per­for­mance, screams get out of my way. The only car with­out a man­ual trans­mis­sion on the day.
