Y​ou most likely love the Porcshe 911 GT3 RS (who doesn’t?) It is the most talked about and famous Porcshe GT. If you ask a somewhat car enthusiast they would say “oh yeah of course the GT3 RS is faster.” Yeah well they’re wrong. The difference is engine and top speed. The GT3 RS does 0-60 in 3 seconds with a 4.0 L, naturally aspired flat-6. That gives it a top speed of 193 mph. The GT2 on the other hand with a 3.8 L twin turbocharged flat-6 does 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of 211 mph. In car world that’s a big difference. The only downside is that the GT3 is about $100,000 less and easier to get. I’m not saying the GT3 is bad, honestly it’s one of my all time favorite cars, but I do want to make it a point that the GT2 RS is underrated and still faster. You might say people still talk about the GT2 which they do, but all I‘m saying is that the GT3 sometimes get a little to much credit.

T​hanks so much for reading and comment down below your thoughts on the Porcshe 911 GT2 RS.

  • There are lots of great Porsche GT products and price is a significant factor depending on whether you want to speculate or drive one.

    The used prices are however all over the place, when the GT3 RS was new, used ones were selling for circa £220k - £240k. Now however the prices vary from £135k to £240k. The question is then what’s changed resulting in such a wide gap now? Well the £135k ones have about 4k-12k miles where as the £240k ones have less than 1k miles.

    The reality is however they are only worth around £140k and the speculators that have them up for silly money just won’t sell them and are kidding themselves on price.

    Better off buying a used cayman GT4 and actually driving it!

  • I prefer the GT3 because it has that NA 4.0L engine and that is so much more important to me than a good lap time

  • In yours's but not in my book. The 911 996 should be the one.
