Last week I featured a Glacier Blue 911SC that the seller mentioned as being akin to a lighter shade of Gulf Blue. Well here we have the real thing: a Gulf Blue 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS located in California. The Gulf colors have long been synonymous with racing figuring most prominently at Le Mans on Ford’s GT40 as well as Porsche’s own 917. Since those early days the Gulf livery has found its way onto a wide variety of road cars and on a modern Porsche there’s really no better option than to have Gulf Blue covering the lines of the GT3 RS. This isn’t as shout-at-you vibrant as Lava Orange or Ultraviolet, but for its link to so many historically great race cars it certainly should stand as one of the best options on these ultimate 911s. My only quibble: the wheels should be orange!

There isn’t a whole lot to be said about this car; the appeal here relative to other examples of the GT3 RS lies entirely in the paint-to-sample color as otherwise this is more or less a new car and at this point most are familiar with the model. Prices have been progressively lowering as we now frequently see the GT3 RS priced a good bit below $300K. This one, however, thanks to its PTS paint remains above that number. It’s a high premium to pay for an exterior color, but if your objective is to hold on for long term value then perhaps that premium will make sense.
Note: The seller has listed this car as a 2015 model, but I’m pretty sure the correct model year is 2016 so that is how I have written it.
