911 GT3 RS 3.8 – 450 ch [2010 à 2011]

Porsche 997.2 W.C. GT3RS Build by GMG Racing

This Porsche 997.2 GT3 RS has got the full GMG World Challenge street/track car make-over. For those of you who are unaware of who GMG Racing is, they are currently what factory Porsche racing is now as to what ANDIAL was to Porsche racing back in the 70’s and 80’s  The two shops even happen to reside next to each other in Santa Ana, California. Now, if you are unaware of who ANDIAL is, then it’s quite possible that you are just not a Porsche guy. Fair enough. Let’s just say that Porsche has recently bought ANDIAL as their very own AMG, or M division, just to give you a smidgen of an idea. GMG races in the World Challenge series, which is North America’s premier sprint racing series with cars competing from such manufacturers as Porsche, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Cadillac, Ford, Aston Martin, Volvo, Corvette, Mercedes, plus more. GMG has been successfully campaigning Porsche GT3 Cup cars in this series for several years now and even captured the 2010 Manufacturers Championship title for Porsche. Who then better to modify your GT3 street car for the track than a shop that wins races with them?  Enough said for now, let’s just take a moment for a break and let the pictures speak for themselves […]

Sales Spotlight: Porsche 997 GT3 RS 3.8

There’s no such thing as a bad Rennsport 911; we’d happily take the keys to any Porsche 911 RS such is the prowess of these iconic, motorsport-bred Neunelfers. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t have our favourites.

The Porsche 997 GT3 RS 3.8 – the second generation of 997 Rennsport – sits firmly near the top of our RS wish list. For everyday thrills, we’d probably choose it over its illustrious, limited edition 4.0-litre brother.

That 3.8-litre Mezger flat six is one of Porsche’s greatest ever engines and, mated to a sweet six-speed manual (again one of Zuffenhausen’s best), the 997.2 GT3 RS makes for an electrifying experience behind the wheel. And you could get in on the act with this gorgeous example from independent specialist, RPM Technik.

Unlike the host of Grey Black and Carrara White cars, RPM’s 997 RS 3.8 is finished in the rich Aqua Blue hue and comes with contrasting pale gold centre-lock alloys and side decals helping it to stand out from the Rennsport crowd for all the right reasons.

Delivered to its new owner from Porsche Centre Swindon in June 2010, the car has been maintained throughout its life by OPCs in Cardiff and Mid Sussex, with RPM responsible for general wear and tear, including tyre changes and geometry setup.

Complete with the Clubsport interior kit, this 997 GT3 RS comes with an enviable list of options, including carbon backed bucket seats, carbon fibre dash trims and Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

The latter option makes RPM’s 997 RS 3.8 the perfect Porsche 911 track tool, although with an asking price of £174,995 it represents quite a large investment to thrash around a circuit.

Conversely, it would be equally as thrilling to take out for a blast on your favourite roads every weekend. With only 13,000 miles on the clock thought, we just hope the new owner gets out and truly enjoys this Rennsport.

For more information on this Porsche 997 GT3 RS Gen2, head to RPM Technik’s website (where you can also check out the rest of their Porsche 911 stock) now.

Video: How you should treat your newly purchased 997 GT3 RS

In this day and age of ever-inflating Rennsport prices, you’d be led to believe many on the internet that everyone who now goes out and buys a Mezger-engined Porsche 911 GT3 RS is planning to keep it stowed away in an air-conditioned garage, never to see a road (let alone a track) again.

However, that is not always the case, as this video from independent specialist, RPM Technik. They recently had a customer purchase a Gen1 Porsche 997 GT3 RS and, within a few days, christen the car at a track day.

And, to prove it, here is some onboard video footage from the 997 GT3 RS as the new owner gives it a proper hiding around the Oulton Park circuit. He’s certainly not hanging about. Enjoy.

Video: Porsche 991 GT3 RS v 997.2 GT3 RS

In the latest issue of Total 911, we gathered each iteration of Porsche 997 GT3 RS as a benchmark for Weissach’s latest Rennsport: the 991 GT3 RS. The new car faced-off against the 997 GT3 RS 4.0 on track before we headed out onto the open road with the 991 and 997.2 GT3 RS.

It’s not very often that you get the keys to the latest and last 911 Rennsports so we couldn’t waste the opportunity, grabbing our GoPros and going for a countryside blast in the two 911 GT3 RSs.

The new Porsche 991 GT3 RS – described as “a technological marvel” in issue 136 – has a number of new tricks up its sleeve while the 997 GT3 RS 3.8 represents the end of the analogue Rennsport family, complete with manual gearbox and famous Mezger flat six.

With both thrilling the Total 911 team, you’ll just have to pick up a copy of the latest issue to read our verdict. However, join the debate in the comments as we want to know, which one would you choose: 991 or 997?

To read our Porsche 911 GT3 RS group test in full, pick up Total 911 issue 136 in store today. Alternatively, order your copy online for home delivery or download it straight to your digital device now.
