The GT3 RS. The king of the naturally-aspirated 911s and the personal favorite of many, myself included. As an individual model it’s been around only since 2003, but the RS has roots all the way back to the 1973 Carrera RS and we may even take that further back to the extremely limited 1967 911R or the 356 Carrera. Regardless of which model we see as the progenitor it’s clear these run deep in Porsche’s roots.
The version we see here is the penultimate example built for the 997 featuring a 3.8 liter engine delivering 450 hp to a 6-speed manual transmission. While not the top dog – that position falls to the very rare GT3 RS 4.0 – these still produce plenty of power and provide plenty of road and track ability. This Carrara White with Red graphics example is in near flawless condition and sits with only 3,400 miles on it.

While it’s strange to say about a car with an asking price of $218,500 I do think this particular GT3 RS sits as a pretty reasonable value. Compared with the GT3 RS 4.0, with prices easily eclipsing $400K with this mileage (and one reaching above $700K, but much lower mileage and rare options), the 3.8-liter models seem downright inexpensive. Sure, it’s a good bit less rare and less powerful than the 4.0, but every RS is in pretty good demand so I doubt the bottom will just fall out.
But even compared with other examples of the 3.8 liter GT3 RS this one seems competitively priced. Or perhaps it’s better to call it realistically priced? It isn’t cheap, but with its very low mileage and given that the condition looks fantastic I think there’s a decent argument to be made for this particular one. It has ceramic composite brakes, comes in a very nice color combination, and sounds like it’s in fine mechanical shape. I know I like it!
