You would be surprised at how tame the GT3RS and even the GT2RS are on the street. I love them as a daily driver, and believe it or not..... much nicer than even the F430 as a DD. It really is a pleasure to drive.

My local dealer says no slots available - with only 500 being made, you'll need to be Porsche royalty or willing to pay over... sucks for the common man with 200K burning a hole LOL

This is not meant in a negative way, but as a sincere question, you personally drive (have driven) these vehicles as a daily driver?

I'm co-owner of a small exotic car dealership that specializes in selling old Porsches/sending them back to the EU and restoring them etc. On occasion we buy "special" cars to drive for a year or more, then sell at a loss.....on ocassion a profit, they double as a "wow" factor for our lot/inventory. Now with that out of the way, yes.... I have driven them as a DD. I put roughly 15k miles on a GT3RS (the first of 997) and we just picked up a GT2RS which drives better/smoother/arseload faster . I haven't driven the most recent GT3RS, but from everything I have read it is similar/better than the 1st gen.

2RS, sweet - you guys must be Porsche royalty! I just got the 3.8RS last fall - it is superior in every way to the 1st gen 997, while being equally compliant as a DD. I would prefer the sport seats to the buckets if I were to DD it though.

Just got lucky with our connections on that one. I want to drive the 3.8RS, such an amazing car, for me a GT3RS (any 997) are perfect DD's. Sure the new sport seats will prolly be better for the longer drive.......but good god those buckets are sexy as hell.

So you're that guy!

Embarrassed to admit that the hottest Porsche I've driven is a 997 C2S.

Default Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 Official Details Reportedly Leaked



Quote:
For months rumors have been swirling about a new, higher-performance Porsche GT3 RS model, and now officials specs on the car have reportedly been leaked online. The new model, now apparently officially called the GT3 RS 4.0 get a (you guessed it) 4.0-liter flat-six engine making 500-hp, adding both 200 ccs and 50-hp over the standard model.
Priced at €150,000 (roughly $217,000 based on a straight, but inaccurate conversion), add-on options include navigation, ceramicbrakes and a front suspension that can be raised or lowered on command.
The validity of the order sheet has been called into doubt, however, and we wouldn’t be surprised if its revealed as a fake.

Order sheet looks the same - PCCB, Axle lift, PCM, Adaptive seats... so, the base price increase comes from (other than the motor of course)... my guess is carbon body panels like the GT2RS. My dealer says no order slots for the US yet.

wow- perhaps the ultimate rich man's turn-key streetable track toy.

I wonder if the two tabs visible on the roll hoop next to the passenger's seat somehow tie in to a lateral brace in the door? Where I'm going is, what groups will accept the cage in this thing in their rulebooks?
