The first-gen 997 GT3 RS gave us an excellent car that has very little flaws, but its second-generation is what really set a benchmark when it comes to performance in its class and it’s no surprise that these cars were highly-coveted by many petrol heads from all around the world! Unveiled in 2010, the 997.2 GT3 RS came with plenty of significant changes over its predecessor, especially that larger 3.8-litre Mezger flat-six cylinder engine that produces 450 bhp, a 35 bhp bump over its 3.6-litre sibling. Simply put, the 911 GT3 offers an even higher standard above all in two key areas: performance and driving dynamics.
Delivered in Carrera White finish, this 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 with 41k miles on its odometer is currently being offered by its seller out of New York. The 2nd-generation was highly distinguished by its more aggressive front and rear fascias, a fixed rear wing, and a center-exit sports exhaust system which makes for even greater downforce, improving high-speed stability. This particular example also features features headlight washers, tinted taillights, self-dimming mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, vented bumper covers, and a front lip spoiler.
The 19″ silver-finished alloy wheels are mounted with 235/35 front and 305/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport Cut 2 tires that show 2021 date codes. Braking is handled by Porsche-branded six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers over replacement steel cross-drilled rotors. The car is equipped with a MacPherson strut suspension that has been modified with MCS adjustable coilovers and Tarett camber plates and springs.
The interior is upholstered in black leather with Alcantara inserts and feature body-color seatbacks along with embossed Porsche crests in the headrests as well as Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. Additional features include the Sound Package Plus, PCM 3.0 with extended navigation, a footwell-mounted fire suppression system, automatic climate control, a roll bar, and cruise control.
The 3.8-liter Mezger flat-six features VarioCam variable valve timing, titanium connecting rods, and dry-sump lubrication, and has been fitted with a Fabspeed intake. The engine pumps out 435 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque which is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential.
Even though more than a decade has passed since it was introduced in 2010, the 997.2 GT3 RS is still highly-regarded as one of the best 911 GT3s making it a true modern day collectable and will surely have a place in the hearts among many Porsche enthusiasts for years to come!
