- Single ownership and just under 12,000 miles from new
- Desirable 997.2-generation 911 GT3 RS
For the second generation of the 997 variant of Porsche’s fabled 911, the GT3 RS would once again become the benchmark in performance for its class, and a car which all petrolheads aspired to own. Introduced in 2010, the 997.2 GT3 RS boasted a handful of updates over the 997.2 GT3, namely the larger 3.8-litre Mezger flat-six cylinder engine, producing 450 bhp, a 35 bhp bump over its 3.6-litre sibling. It shared the wider 911 bodyshell with the Carrera 4 and thanks to a revised front end and large rear spoiler, achieved even greater downforce than the GT3, improving high-speed stability.
Delivered new to its first and only owner in the UK in right-hand-drive configuration, this GT3 RS is finished in one of the car’s official launch colour combinations; White with contrasting Red decals. Inside, the car boasts matching red gauges, bucket seats with four-point racing harnesses as well as Porsche’s PCM navigation system with the Sport Chrono package, perfect for getting to and from the track without taking a wrong turn, and clocking your lap times while at speed! Driven just under 12,000 miles over the course of its lifetime, it is accompanied by its original owner’s manuals, including its warranty manual, attesting that it has been serviced at regular intervals by Porsche Centre Wilmslow and has been serviced there ever since, with the last service carried out at 11,782 miles in September of 2017. Furthermore, the car is fitted with a sports exhaust, yet the original exhaust is included in the sale.
The final iteration of the GT3 RS with a manual transmission, the 997.2 GT3 RS has already become a modern-day collectable and will surely have a fond place in the hearts of enthusiasts for years to come, thanks to its infectious performance and wonderful handling. Boasting single ownership from new and always having been serviced at regular intervals by official Porsche dealerships, this would be the perfect example with which to take to the track, enjoy on the open road, or both!
