Joshua Tree National Park has long thrilled visitors from around the world with its indescribable beauty and openness.

It’s not only protected land but it’s a huge expanse of wild desert lands, picture-perfect sunrises and sunsets – and it’s a great place to simply let go of the hustle and bustle of modern life.

While Palm Springs offers plenty of fun in the sun along with great restaurants, cafes, and bars, Joshua Tree brings the nature, what one media outlet called a “unique blend of flora, fauna, and stunning rock formations proves even more exciting to travelers.”

And best of all Joshua Tree National Park can be easily reached within an hour’s drive of Porsche Palm Springs. In fact, we nominate it as a great inaugural drive in your new Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

The Travel website suggests that you can make the most of your day trip to Joshua Tree National Park by starting it at the park’s west entrance. Then you can traverse the park, exiting through the south entrance before returning to Palm Springs.

“This route ensures a comprehensive exploration of the park’s remarkable attractions. Because people will be going from one desert to another, filling the tank, grabbing some water and snacks, and putting on plenty of sunscreens is a good idea. There is so much to see and do between these two California gems, so don’t be afraid to hop outside of the car and indulge in the local culture!”

Among the attractions: some of the best hiking opportunities in the world.

Don’t forget to pack snacks, water, and sunscreen. Joshua Tree is the real deal when it comes to experiencing the California desert – that means it’s very hot in the warmer months – so you don’t want to leave home without all the needed provisions. 

Once there you can enjoy Hidden Valley, Lost Horse Mine Trail, Pine City, Ryan Mountain, Jumbo Rocks Area, Cholla Cactus Garden, Cottonwood Springs Oasis, etc.

And there’s no vehicle better for such a drive as a Porsche. With plenty of open road and some twists and turns along the way, our pick for all of your day-tripping needs is the Porsche GT3 RS.

While perfection required no alterations, Porsche still made refinements to elevate aerodynamics and overall performance of the 2024 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

The 2024 version boasts new air outlets in the corners of the rear bumper and a deeper recess for the license plate, further optimizing aerodynamic efficiency.

Additionally, a new diffuser enhances both efficiency and the aggressive appearance of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, ensuring an unforgettable driving experience. The broader 992 range to which it belongs has switched to an all-digital instrument cluster and there are plenty of trim options available. 

Everything about this Porsche supercar emanates greatness – from the 4.0- liter high-revving naturally aspirated 518 horsepower engine to the fully automatic adjustment of the front diffuser and rear wing. In short, the GT3 RS is a beast, a video game race car come to life. It’s truly an ultra-dynamic ultra-powerful sports car with few rivals in the automotive world.
