If the new Porsche 991 GT3 RS is a bit too rich for your blood – whether it’s the price, the power, or all the new electronic stuff – you can take solace in the fact that the launch of that car means you can now pickup the previous generation model for a lot less money. This awesome British Racing Green Porsche 997 GT3 RS proves that the old model can actually be a better choice than the new one.
Of course, if you chose a unique example of the Porsche 997 GT3 RS, like this one with its magnificent paint job and special features, you are going to have to pay a little bit more. But you will get your money back at the other end when you sell it on. So you should look at it as an investment.
What’s more, cars as unique as this British Racing Green Porsche 997 GT3 RS could and would appreciate in time, especially as it boasts the desirable manual gearbox – something the new generation is not blessed with. This car also has a lovely black Alcantara interior with air con and sat nav installed. Normally, the Rs does not come with either.
Engine-wise, the 997 GT3 RS is powered by a 3.8 liter normally aspirated flat-six engine with 440 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. The car has a reputation for not tolerating the driver’s mistake, which of course makes its driving experience that much more thrilling and fun.
