Tracing its lineage back to 1972 the RS badge has been applied sparingly by Porsche to identify six generations of lightweight 911’s homologated for use in motorsport.
The GT3 RS 3.8 model epitomizes Porsche’s dedication to producing track focused, race proven machines that provide a high performance driving experience in its purest from.
With its first appearance in 2010 the GT3 RS 3.8 engine utilizes the bulletproof ‘Mezger’ dry sump block. The result is a reliable engine that produces 454 horsepower, a 15bhp increase over its predecessor with an impressive output of 118bhp per litre.
Weighing just 1370kg the RS is 25kg lighter than the GT3. Improving on the Generation 1 997 model the Generation 2 RS received a six speed close ratio manual gearbox optimised for short gearshift travel and a wider front track improving front end grip to unparalleled levels from a 911. Adding to the package were centre lock wheels and an improved rear wing allowing higher levels of downforce.
Featuring hydraulic steering, dynamic engine mounts and Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system the GT3 RS chassis delivers unrivalled driver feedback while providing a choice of ride comfort and performance levels dependent on the road or track environment.
With only 426 cars built in 2010 this exclusive GT3 RS provides the highest levels of performance and driver satisfaction. An instant classic and already a highly sought after collectable car.
RHD C16, Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with extended navigation module and touch screen. Telephone Bluetooth module, Instrument dials in Carrera white, Sport Chrono in Carrera white, Sound Package plus, Cruise control, Universal audio interface, PSM, Tyre monitor, Centre lock wheels, Extended Alcantara interior.
Presented in classic Carrara white this GT3 RS looks incredible and every bit the part of its lightweight racing design. The paint work remains all original retaining its factory coat which contrasts subtly with the light gold wheels and decals.
The GT3 RS benefits having a full PPF (paint protection film) across the whole car as a result it has avoided any excessive stone chips to the front or scratches and scuffs around the body.
Specified with the extended leather interior the cabin exudes a luxurious but purposeful edge. Stitched leather runs around the dash and top of the door cars before the carbon fibre inserts separate the alcantara leather that lines the glove box and lower dash. This is matched by the alcantara steering wheel, handbrake and gear surround.
This car was specified with road use in mind so comes with extended navigation, upgraded sound package and cruise control.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
True to form the RS engine fires into life and settles with a familiar rattle coming from the lightweight flywheel. This car has spent most of its mileage on the road as an everyday car rather than a weekend toy and as such remains in excellent condition having recently undergone a full main dealer service and a rev range check.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The lightweight centre lock designed wheels are in perfect unmarked condition wrapped in a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres with plenty of tread left.
The brakes remain in good condition with minimal wear and plenty of pad material remaining.
