The reference ''RS'' will quicken the pulse of Porsche connoisseurs. Models such as the legendary Carrera RS 2.7 of 1972 and the 1991 Type 964 911 RS were also sports cars that stood out on account of their extreme degree of manoeuvrability and handling. That tradition was continued with the 997 911 GT3 RS. In common with its predecessors, it provided a homologation model for use in a range of racing series.
Porsche initial 997 "Gen 1" utilised a 3.6L naturally aspirated engine which later in 2010 evolved into a "Gen 2" car powered by a naturally aspirated flat six 3.8L engine. The already impressive power output was upped to 444 bhp at 7,900 rpm. Combined with bespoke drivetrain components reserved only for the RS models such as a lightweight single-mass flywheel and close ratio 6-speed gearbox its performance was taken to a whole new level.
The muscular-looking rear end conceals a wider track that not only improves directional stability but also increases the potential cornering grip of the two-seater coupe. The specialised wide body was furthermore subjected to a strict "RS" diet achieved by the use, amongst other solutions, of an adjustable carbon fibre wing, lightweight rear windows and a titanium exhaust system. As a consequence, the corresponding engine power to weight ratio is over 300bhp per tonne.
This rare UK supplied RHD variant was supplied to its first and owner, a notable English industrialist and owner of one of the best Porsche collections in the UK, in January 2011. Presented in the stunning launch spec combination of Grey Black with a Red RS Livery (featuring Red Script, front grill, mirrors, wing end plates and wheels).
