Anyone considering an immaculate 996 GT3 rs should perhaps take a pause, as the same money will secure some very different, yet equally special, 911 experiences
993 Turbo S
The last of the air-cooled 911. 450bhp and 585nm of torque provided an epic shove in the back, while the looks were bolstered by the Aerokit II with prominent front and rear spoilers and air intakes ahead of the rear wheels.
The mechanically injected 2.4-litre engine brought useful increases in power and torque compared to the 2.2, encouraging owners to make the most of the agile handling. The external oil filler cap was confusing, though.
997.2 GT3 RS
While this generation now featured PASM and dynamic engine mounts, it was no less focused. Thanks to the 3.8 450hp motor it was ferociously quick, and with wider front wings and centrelock wheels it looked the part.
The 300bhp 3.8 saw the first use of the Varioram intake system, and both throttle and handling responses were scalpel sharp. of the 1,104 made, 227 were in hardcore clubsport trim, and just 38 made it to the UK in rhd form.
