Porsche’s now famous RS moniker reappeared in 2015, indicating a special, racing-inspired version with a generous amount of racing components. The 991-generation 911 GT3 RS exudes power and performance aesthetically with unique front fender louvers, rear side-quarter intakes, and most notably, a large adjustable rear wing. Lightweight materials such as carbon fiber fenders, engine cover and trunk, as well as a magnesium roof are utilized on the GT3 RS to enhance performance by reducing overall curb weight.
The GT3 RS is much more than an appearance package, delivering blistering performance via a potent, naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat six-cylinder engine developing 500 hp at 6,250 rpm and 384 foot-pounds of torque shifted seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) automatic transmission.
This 2016 GT3 RS was purchased new by its current owner who kept it in his collection, driving it sparingly, accumulating only 67 miles. Special ordered, paint-to-sample from Porsche in non-metallic Azure Blue complimented with silver painted wheels and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes with yellow calipers, this GT3 RS is stunning and appears as-new. The interior is fitted with black seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara, accented with optional contrasting Deviated Thread and Azure blue dash accents. Other desirable equipment ordered on this car includes an extended range, 23.9-gallon fuel tank, front axle lift system, sound package plus, fire extinguisher and Navigation Module LED headlights in black with Porsche Dynamic Light System featuring instrument dials in white.
Virtually new, this one-owner, 67-mile GT3 RS reflects pride of ownership and the fastidious care bestowed upon it during its original and current owner’s stewardship of this highly coveted high-performance Porsche. One of the finest examples of this model available and in pristine original condition with many desirable options, this GT3 RS presents a unique opportunity for even the most discerning collector to acquire a truly exceptional Porsche.
