Porsche brought a 911 GT3 RS equipped with its optional Weissach Package to this year's auto show. As you'd expect, we took lots of photos, capturing the glorious details that make this one of the ultimate track-day 911s ever.

Want to know how to spot a Weissach Package car? Check out the hood. Every GT3 RS has a carbon-fiber hood, but Weissach Pack cars get a clear gloss finish.

Those optional magnesium wheels don't just look cool—they bring serious performance benefits. That's because they're much lighter than the standard alloys on the RS, contributing to a 25-pound reduction in rotating mass. Yours for $13,000, but only if you tick the box for the $18,000 Weissach Package.

When equipped with the Weissach Package and magnesium wheels, the new GT3 RS weighs 3153 pounds. That's thanks to carbon fiber roof, sway bars, and end links.

Porsche brought back the "GT3 RS" door script for this car. We dig it, but you can have it removed if you don't.

Porsche Motorsport might have brought back the manual for the GT3, but all of its "RS" cars will be PDK only. Since these cars are aimed at track-day junkies, Porsche figures that PDK makes more sense. And in any case, it's an excellent gearbox.

The Weissach Package also gets you carbon-fiber for the steering wheel trim and the shift paddles.

This pack is named after Porsche's famous test track, a map of which is seen on the badge here. This motif is also stitched in the headrests.

You can't see it here, but the GT3 RS is equipped with a 4.0-liter flat-six which makes 520 horsepower. It's the most powerful naturally aspirated 911 ever built. And it revs to 9000 rpm, which is nice.

European-market GT3 RSes with the Weissach Package get a titanium roll cage, as seen here. US regulations mean we won't receive it here.

You'll have to wait until later this year if you want a GT3 RS with these wheels. Porsche severely underestimated the take-rate for the Weissach Package on the GT2 RS, and BBS can't make these wheels quickly enough.

No badges here. Too heavy. Instead, you get a sticker.

This fender vent made its debut on the previous GT3 RS. It helps reduce pressure in the wheel arches, which prevents front-end lift.

This color is called Lizard Green, and it makes its debut with the GT3 RS. Under the lights at the New York Auto Show, it looks excellent.

This GT3 RS has standard steel brakes instead of the lighter carbon-ceramic brakes offered optionally. While the carbon brakes reduce unsprung mass, some track junkies prefer traditional brakes because the replacement costs are much lower.
