Porsche GT3 RS Hits the Nürburgring

Porsche is having a bit of fun with its new 991 GT3 RS sports car.

AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers recently caught the new 991 GT3 RS around the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife with ex-Red Bull Formula 1 driver Mark Webber behind the wheel. Webber, now a Porsche works driver, was taking the new sports car for a spin so that Porsche can capture some promotional materials that will likely surface soon as marketing materials.
