The 996 GT3RS was introduced in late 2003, a more track-focused version of the standard GT3.  “RS” is short for the German Renn Sport, translated to “racing sport” in English.

The RS was lighter than the standard GT3 thanks to a polycarbonate rear window, carbon fibre bonnet, rear wing, and side mirror housings. Ceramic brakes were optional but, if fitted shaved another 27kgs off the already low 1360kgs curb weight!

The engine specification is slightly different. The cylinder heads on the RS have reshaped intake and exhaust ports for race homologation. Porsche claims the same 381Hp as the standard GT3 but Porsches control dyno showed a jump to nearly 400Hp or 298kW! The RS also has progressive springs, and dampers nearly 15 precent stiffer than the standard car on bounce and rebound. The wheel carriers were completely redesigned to maximize the dynamic camber control. The suspension top mounts can be turned 120 degrees to a Cup car position. Front and rear control arms are adjustable, and the RS is 3mm lower than the standard GT3. Zero to 100km/h took 4,3 seconds and top speed was 306km/h. The Nürburgring time was 7:43, four seconds faster than the 996 GT2!

This specific car has done 65 000 kms from new and has a good service history from Porsche SA and Porsche Specialists. The car is in a good condition and is fitted with both front-and rear roll cage. Porsche produced 682 996 RS’s, of which only 140 were RHD models!

This is a unique opportunity to own a good example of this rare and special Porsche!
