That's a peach, Isringhausen has nice stuff but like all of their cars about 10% higher than anyone else with like product. Always. But they own the car

Very close to pulling the trigger on a .1 997 GT3 RS. More to follow in a couple of weeks.

Itís a done deal. New to me 08 997.1 GT3 RS. Silver with orange. 25k miles. Very well cared for. Zero over revs. Sharkwerks Center exhaust.

Drove it down CA 1 and 101 yesterday between the Bay Area and San Diego. What an absolute pleasure to drive. Looking forward to getting to know it over the next, oh twenty years or so.

Thanks to everyone here who left left comments during my hunt. They were invaluable. Now I get to start asking noob questions about maintenance and the occasional upgrade 😁

Boise. Congrats!! Perfect selection. Nothing beats a Silver RS. You have so many great options. Please ask tons of questions. There are super smart guys on this board. I'd suggest you look at FLT6SPD and Spyrex for how great a silver .1 RS can look. And check the 996 board to see the 4.2 Manthey GT3 build. It's insane. Shows you that our cars can post up much better numbers than the 2019 GT3 RS. Drive that thing and enjoy. Best Josh
