Joe Rogan’s Sharkwerks Porsche GT3 RS is a 500HP Great White [Video]
When you think of Hollywood celebrities with a serious automotive bug, Joe Rogan dwindles further back in the pack behind the usual cast and crew – Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Ralph Lauren, etc. But hold on, because the guy has quite a storied sports car past. Starting in the early ‘90s, Rogan bought himself a Toyota Supra Turbo, an Acura NSX, and then came the Porsches. After five major breakdowns, Rogan ditched his Porsche 911 996 Turbo and replaced it with a 997 GT3, which lead him down the road to his present Porsche GT3 RS, tuned and fettled by Sharkwerks.

Going off Matt Farah’s impressions of the car on Drive – it’s a belter. Sharkwerks massaged the GT3’s flat-six engine out to 3.9-liters, which brings total output up to around 500-horsepower. At 8,800 rpm. No turbos.
Road handling seems to border on telepathy, and surely no one can find fault with that guttural exhaust soundtrack. Check out the video above and start saving your money.
