When you asked dad if you could borrow the keys to the car as a teenager, was that automobile a Porsche 911 GT3 RS? For most of us, the sad answer would be a resounding "no." But for brothers Schorschi Wörle and Steppi Wörle, aged 14 and 10, daddy just happens to own a Porsche dealership in Germany. Autoblog reports the senior Wörle has such confidence in his young sons that he not only allows them to help out with the family business, but he lets each of them slide behind the wheel of 911 GT3 RS tester autos and compete in local auto club competitions. Ah, das Vaterland...

You won't be driving Porsche 911 GT3 RS any time soon, dear American children

That is not because the Porsche 911 GT3 RS isn't accessible in America (it isn't, unless you import it). It's because, honestly, how numerous dads in The US can give children what they want like Mr. Wörle and not see it all end in twisted metal, smoke and manifold flames? Most fathers aren't Porsche dealers like him, and they don't own their own tester race track. And his children can really drive, too, which is a lot more than can be said for most individuals.About the Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Porsche has a long history of snuffing out elegant, powerful sports cars, and the 911 GT3 is surely no exception. According to an entry on Wikipedia, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a high-performing sports vehicle that has been in production given that 2003. The RS stands for RennSport in German ("racing sport" in English). The new model is lighter than previous 911 GT3s thanks to polycarbonate and carbon fiber window and body parts, when optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) resist heat and fading a lot readily compared to standard iron unites. The 911 GT3 RS can get up to nearly 400 hp with its updated cylinder heads with reshaped intake and exhaust ports. Various sources indicate that the automobile can go from 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds and top out at around 190 mph.

It's a good thing Schorschi and Steppi Wörle know what they're doing.
