Take a look at this ultra rare 997 Porsche GT3 RS

It comes as no surprise to many that the 997 generation of Porsche’s famed GT3 RS is something special. With over 400hp from the naturally aspirated flat six and a massive rear wing preventing lift off, it is a sight to behold. Having said that it seems that things can’t get even more ‘special-er’. Or can they?

As it turns out they can. The following vehicle is a second generation 997 GT3RS finished in PTS ‘Zanzibar Orange’. As you might have guessed the colour is what makes this car. Not only because it is gorgeous but because there is only one other RS finished in this colour in the world.

‘Zazibar Orange’ was added to the palette in 2001 but later removed in 2003 and was never meant for this vehicle. It was originally ordered from new in early 911 ‘Signal Yellow’ but this was later turned down by the guys in Stuttgart. It was at this point that the owner decided to switch the colour scheme.

Complete with gold decals this could be best specced 997 GT3 RS in existence. As a reminder Porsche built only 543 997 GT3 RS’ all finished in the standard colour schemes. Of those 543 roughly 10% were PTS cars.

To make matters more interesting the car was recently listed for sale on the internet! Whether it is still available we don’t know, but with a car of this caliber our guess is no…

Porschefiles At The Launch of NEW 911

Recently Porschefiles were graciously invited to Singapore’s launch of the all-new second generation Porsche 911. The stunning event, which took place at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre in the heart of Singapore’s CBD was by far one of the best events we have attended.

The show presented six models in Porsche’s current range including the Turbo, Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera 4S, Cabriolet and of course the Targa.

Once the main presentation had concluded spectators were welcomed to come take a first hand look at the amazing vehicles. We took up this offer and soon took an in depth look at each of the models in the video.

Overall this was a stunning event, which will definitely be remembered. Take a look at the video and some other photos here.

Is this the best specced GT3RS?

When it comes to Porsches the iconic ‘rubystone red’ and ‘mint’ colors are some of my favorites. Having said that I was unsurprisingly amazed when I encountered an Instagram account featuring a Porsche in one of these iconic colors.

This account however did not feature any ordinary Porsche. Instead it featured a brand  new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It seems that the owner of this car who goes by the name of ‘Walter’ has gone for what some might call a brave but equally awesome color choice. After being in awe for a few seconds I soon noticed that he had bought himself a second one as well…because that’s totally normal.

…and guess what? This car was also specced immaculately in a refreshing mint color scheme featuring white accents.

After a closer inspection I soon unearthed that this whole process supposedly took an entire year! All I can say is congrats! It’s good to see Porsche owners going out there and being brave because honestly silver and black gets a bit dreary. Take a look at the awesome photos and tell us what you think…
