One Green Lap Reviews The Best Green Car Ever: A Porsche 911 GT3 RS!!

Nothing screams "GREEN CAR!!" as much as a tree-frog-green Porsche 911 GT3 RS!!

And I mean, the car literally screams! Here is a video of the GT3 RS at the Autocross. And that's barely waking up the beast at these low speeds.

You might be wondering if the GT3 RS really can be classified as a "green car". Well, my thinking is, when you get it up to its top speed of 192 mph and coast to a complete stop for 3 miles, it would barely use any gas in that stretch, so it would be getting the equivalent of 100+ mpg. It works for me. Its window sticker confirms my reasoning.

The car's owner Stephen "Scruffy" Lefebvre happens to be an autocross junkie and a course designer for a few clubs. He uses CAD/CAM design for the course layouts and basically pisses excellence, as advertised proudly on his sweat shirt.

This GT3 RS is fairly stock and the list of modifications is slim: High velocity door pulls, titanium muffler bearings, double row granistat harness mounts, and unobtanium connecting rods (OK, these might all be made up.) It has dropped down to lighter 18" OZ wheels, added camber plates, Porsche Cup Car ring and pinion, massive lockup aftermarket LSD, and wrist-sized aftermarket sway bars. Tires have been widened from the stock 235/35/19 and 305/30/19 size to 255/35/18 and 315/30/18. Scruffy plans to go even wider this year - I expect a one-piece tire construction that covers the entire rear of the car!

"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me?... Well I'm the only one here. 
Who the fuck do you think you're talking to?"

Another mean shot

The mandatory JLo shot

Objects in mirror will be very, very far behind really

The GT3 RS comes with a beautiful carbon fibre coffee table.

There's no space for a subwoofer here, punk! It's a race car...

... Try under the hood. Maybe.

Green car, green grass, One Green Lap, that's a lot of green.

Bucket seats to die for

Gauges to die for

$1,000 chrono I could live without

It even has a glove box. Would you be able to hear the baroque violin
over the intake and exhaust's crescendo? Or maybe it's just something 
to slow down your pulse after you shut off the motor?

Nice and light 18s, downsized from the stock 19s

Cone marks are badges of honor. Scars from a battle. 
Something to be proud of and show off!

 Good night. Sweet dreams...
