Here are a bunch from MMC. last time I was there 3 new GT3RS's were parked in the garage storage area-waiting for the owners.


I like the white one with red trim.

That Benz was a special tricked out AMG unit.
It had so much torque it would just spin the tires out of every corner.
The owner burned through a complete set in less than 1 day.

Great pics, thanks for posting. I'll take them all, but 1st choice has to be the white/grey GT3 Cup car.

Thats a "Black Series" Benz, right? Beautiful car, but I'd rather have the Porsche

They look like Go Pro video cameras.

Looks like GT3 prices are in that $75k-$85k range. RS seems to add another $10-15k. I'm not sure why? Any input?

I'm so stalking these now.

I've been stalking them for a few years now as well. I think it has alot to do with having something more "exclusive" than a "run-of-the-mill" GT3. Performance wise I'm not sure there is a big difference between the two. For me, its the orange paint, black wheels and graphics and lack of a sunroof that are luring me towards the RS model.

For what it is worth, it seems like most people are choosing the 997.2 GT3 over the 997.1 RS since they are pretty much on the same price point. Thats good with me- more 997.1 RSs for me to choose from!

I'm already excited to buy one but haven't even gotten the green light from the better half. I'm blown away by them all, starting with MarkD new GT3. Some have a better look than others, but for me, its like a bunch of supermodels, they're all hot.

Enjoyed this post... I'm with you guys that the 997.1RS is a classic. As a college student, my "dream" Porsche was the '94 3.6 Turbo in black/black from Bad Boys. Since 2006, my dream Porsche is the 997.1RS in Black with Orange trim. Someday....

And Spidey993TT - 5 1/2 is a great age! My son is now 12, and still enjoys hanging out with dad at the track. At 5, he was into Razor scooters. Now it is go-karts.... Cost of entry just went up! Enjoy that age, though... He looks like a great kid who loves Porsches!
