2016 Porsche GT3 RS
Just looking inside the cabin of this Porsche 911 GT3 RS reveals the car’s true character. The bright orange roll-cage and seat-belts are the giveaway, but the Lava Orange exterior paint doesn’t disguise the car’s intent, either.
The GT3 has always been Porsche’s track-day alternative to a standard 911, but the RS tag takes it several steps further with a larger, four-litre engine (the non-RS GT3 has 3.8 litres) and more power with 368 kW on tap. But the RS is about more than brute force; grams and aero matter, too, so there are details like a magnesium roof panel (lighter than even carbon-fibre) a titanium exhaust system, louvred front wings, a huge rear wing and a front splitter to tame airflow.
Warranty and More
A 2016 model, this car also comes with the balance of the Porsche factory warranty (taking the cover to January 2022) and has a full and up-to-date service history by Porsche Centre Brighton. Many GT3 RSs boasted very Spartan interiors, but this example has been specified with a white gauge package, auto dimming mirrors, the factory sound package as well as Porsche’s communication management package including a telephone module. And, of course, those orange seat-belts.
