It takes the quickest of glances at Porsche’s catalog to realize something: Porsche’s current offerings are better than ever before—legendary even. With Porsche’s 918 running point, the GT3 RS will knock the socks off anyone daring and lucky enough to give it a go, and the Cayman GT4 has rounded out the pack, proving that Porsche isn’t just one of the greatest names in motorsports history, but that they are effortlessly pushing the bar, too. So when we had a chance to work with Andrew Zalasin (@zalasin) and Elizabeth White (@itswhitenoise) of the ITSWHITENOISE movement and build Vossen Forged: Precision Series wheels for their Porsche 991 GT3 RS and Cayman GT4, we seriously could not have been more excited!
Zalasin, having raced and collected his share of Porsches and various other exotic and desirable cars over the years, and White, having worked with Mercedes, McLaren, and Speedhunters, to name a few, are no strangers to the automotive community. Together, they’ve traveled the world, driving some of the most prestigious stretches of tarmac in the world. In fact, this very GT3 RS has even seen some time on the Nurburgring!
The weekend after SEMA, our friends at Optima Batteries (@optimabatteries) hosted their annual Ultimate Street Car Invititational (#OUSCI) at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We’re no strangers to the OUSCI, as our Renntech-built (@renntech) Mercedes-Benz E63 competed in the event last year (photos here).
This year, however, we chased Andrew and the VPS-303-clad GT3 RS around the various challenges that take place as part of Optima’s event. From the speed stop challenge to the full road course, Andrew tore it up in the GT3 RS, competing against a very diverse field of cars, from classic Corvettes to Mitsubishi Evos.
After the OUSCI we ventured off into the Las Vegas desert to spend some much-needed alone time with the Porsche duo. As the sun settled behind the mountains we snapped away, with a whole crew of cameras in full force (thanks again to Cliff (@timeatk) and LightCapturers (@lightcapturers) and Danny Batista (@dannybatista) for the support!). With light dwindling and our bodies running empty, we finally called it a night, a weekend, and yet another successful trip to Las Vegas for SEMA, and that was a wrap for our weekend with Andrew Zalasin (@zalasin) and Elizabeth White (@itswhitenoise) of ITSWHITENOISE!
