I don’t think I need to belabor this one. After all it wasn’t that long ago that I featured a GT3 RS 4.0. That particular example was quite special in that it was one of the very rare paint-to-sample 4.0s that were built. This one is not paint to sample, but it does provide its own special features. And a very high price to match!
This is a Carrara White Metallic 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, located in Houston, that is one of the handful that was optioned without the audio system. Also, it sits with only 15 miles on it. Yes, 15.
I’ve been looking for one of these to feature for a little while. Not the GT3 RS 4.0 itself; I’ve featured a few of those. Rather a paint-to-sample GT3 RS 4.0. When Porsche announced it would release the 4.0 as its ultimate send-off for the 997 they also announced the standard colors: Carrara White or Black. This being a special edition Porsche that didn’t stop some buyers from opting for a different color palette, thus making an already rare car – only 600 total were produced – even more rare.
If I’m honest this isn’t the best of the PTS 4.0 I’ve seen, at least with regard to color. There are a few running around with better and more historic Porsche colors. This owner opted for Orange. As Orange goes it is a nice color though and it certainly shows more flash than the standard black or white. Also, this one is for sale and those others are not.
