The market’s incredible reception for the 911 GT3 made ordering an RS a no-brainer for anyone even remotely minded to do so.
The same would have remained true if Porsche had been more cynical and taken advantage of the situation by charging even more for the RS – but that’s not the kind of company it is.
The last examples of the normal 991 GT3 have changed hands of late for more than the £131,000 being asked for this car, while examples of the previous generation 997 4.0 RS are commanding values north of £400k.
In that context, it’s wholly unsurprising that this car, only 2000 of which will be made, has sold out so quickly. So if you’ve secured an RS at list price, thank your dealer kindly; you’re a very lucky owner indeed.
In terms of ideal specification, Ultra Violet is our colour of choice, and you've got to have the 918 seats. On the options list we'd tick the carbon ceramic brakes (£6248), PCM (£2141), lightweight battery (£1538), Sport Chrono pack (£1085) and Clubsport pack (no extra cost).
