Like most enthusiasts, I tend to prefer the smaller, air-cooled Porsche 911s of yesteryear. However, one recent 911 keeps vying for my attention, the 997 series 911 GT3RS. Specifically, when it is painted in Porsche Green, such as this early build car for sale in Rhode Island. With a series of lighter weight components, the GT3RS weighs in 44 pounds less than a standard 997 GT3. The RS would serve as a base for homologation that packed 300 bhp per ton. Just under 2,000 examples were produced, with 413 finding their way stateside.

One of only 25 US Delivery GT3 RS’s in 2007. Quite possibly the best example, in the most desirable color, in the entire world. With just 4200 miles and flawless in every regard, this one is the REAL DEAL. Speaks for itself; a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Zero over-revs ever. Don’t send me a black, white or orange one and tell me this car is over-priced-find me another GREEN one! You won’t be able to!

A new 991 based GT3RS debuted recently, with an MSRP hovering around $175,000. The new car comes equipped solely with the PDK transmission, so purists are out of luck. If you want a GT3RS with a manual gearbox, the 997 series is your only shot, as the 996 GT3RS was not offered for sale in the US. This car represents a bit of a premium for three pedals, but given the mileage it could almost be considered new. If air-cooled 911 prices are any guide, though, I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before the last of the manual gearbox lightweight specials begin to skyrocket in the market.
