Birch Green 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

There is a part of me that didn’t want to post this car. There is another part of me that is way too attracted to bright things. I love seeing these colors on the GT3 RS too much simply to pass them by. And this one, dressed in PTS Birch Green, is about as bright and rare as they come.

With Birch Green part of the rarity is linked directly to that brightness; bright cars are one thing and they aren’t for everyone. This is so bright that even those who love bright colors may shy away. The funny part of this one, to me, is that the interior is so subdued. Outside of red gauge faces, it’s pretty standard. At first I didn’t like that, I wanted more color, but as I look at it more I think it might be the way to go. The exterior really screams. A toned down interior may just be the right juxtaposition. (I’d have gone with yellow gauge faces though.)

The question is should you buy it? I don’t mean this regarding the color and whether it’s worthwhile or anything of that sort. It absolutely is. But the 991.2 GT3 RS is on its way; deliveries have begun. And I think that is part of the reason why we are seeing a car like this come up for sale. I’ve seen a lot of the .1 GT3 RS come around lately in much more interesting colors. There have been tons of regular examples available basically since production began and now the rare PTS cars are coming out of the woodwork. My sense is that owners are seeing the writing on the wall and that values are not what they may have hoped. The 991.2 will push down those values even more. It’s a better car. So the time to sell is before they too hit the market.

Where does that leave us with a GT3 RS like this one? The asking price is very high. I don’t know what the appropriate price should be right now, but I do not think this is it. The Signal Yellow GT3 RS I posted in February was priced $30K less than this one. It did have more miles (3,055 vs 389) and that’s definitely a factor. Birch Green also is likely to be more rare, though not necessarily in the sense that it is more desirable. Regardless, that’s a big price difference. If you absolutely have to have Birch Green (I’m not sure how many others exist), then I don’t know how much you can quibble with the cost, but I don’t know that you have to jump on it immediately either.

A great color on a great car. We’ll see if that’s enough for it to find a new home.
