Ares Design for Porsche GT3 Targa

High performance versions of Porsche’s iconic 911 have been at the top of the supercar tree for longer than most of its rivals care to remember and when combined with the legendary Renn Sport designation the results are unfailingly impressive. But what if you wanted, say, a GT3 RS but in a less hard core package, perhaps one that would allow wind in the hair motoring? In that case you’d be disappointed as this is a machine that Porsche itself doesn’t build.

Enter ARES Design and its ability to handcraft the finest bespoke creations. The brief was simple: to build a GT3 RS Targa. But this wasn’t just intended as an optical exercise, the Targa had to pack the same stunning performance potential as the GT3 RS Coupe.
