Walk around and test drive

Details

 

In 2003, Porsche introduced the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, an even more track-focused version of the 996 GT3. RS is short for the German RennSport, literally "racing sport" in English. The "RS" moniker, and the characteristic lightweight blue or red wheels and "GT3 RS" side stickers link the 996 GT3 RS to historically important Porsches such as the Carrera 2.7 RS of the early 1970s. The cylinder heads of the 996 GT3 RS have reshaped intake and exhaust ports for race homologation. Porsche claim the same 381 hp power output as the standard GT3 but Porsche's control dyno showed a jump to nearly 400 hp. The RS also has progressive springs rather than linear. The dampers are uprated and are between 10 and 15 percent stiffer than the 996 GT3 in bounce and rebound. The wheel carriers are totally redesigned to maximize the improved dynamic camber control. The suspension top mounts can be turned 120 degrees to a cup car position. Both front and rear control arms are adjustable. The RS is 3 mm lower than the 996 GT3. The rear wing delivers 35 kg of downforce at 125 mph.

The 996 GT3 RS had a production run from 2003 to 2005. Only 140 right hand drive cars were built by Porsche and 113 of those were officially imported into the UK. The RS completed a lap of the Nürburgring 7:43, four seconds faster than the 996 GT2, the top-of-the-line 996 variant of the time.

This very low mileage 996 GT3 RS is finished in Carrara White with red RS script and fitted with the following:
 

  • Rear cage in white

  • Nomex bucket seats

  • Alcantara sports steering wheel

  • Front centre console

  • Litronic (xenon) headlamps

  • Six speed manual transmission

  • Electrically adjustable door mirrors

  • Porsche CDR 23 radio

  • Top tinted windscreen

  • On board computer

  • Fire extinguisher

  • Climate control with air conditioning

  • Leather edged floor mats
