997 GT3 RS 4.0

Autocar - - PORSCHE GT SPECIAL -

Un­til the 911R came out last year, this was the first Gt-se­ries 911 to be built to a strictly lim­ited num­ber. Just 600 were con­structed and, if you weren’t a favoured Porsche cus­tomer, you didn’t stand a chance of get­ting one. Us­ing the crank­shaft from the RSR race car to raise its ca­pac­ity to 4 litres, it had the torque the ‘stan­dard’ GT3 RS lacked, mak­ing it an eas­ier yet more re­ward­ing car to drive. Few come to mar­ket and all fetch huge money; even so, if you ever fan­cied ty­ing up some cash in a Porsche, this would ap­pear a gilt-edged way of do­ing it.
