2018 Porsche 911 / 991 R911 GT3
Year of manufacture2018
Delivered to its first and only owner in April of 2018, this 991.2-generation Porsche 911 GT3 boasts a number of desirable options, chief amongst which is its paint-to-sample exterior colour of Sepia Brown, a colour made famous on 911s in the 1970s. Other options include the manual gearbox and lightweight bucket seats in leather and Alcantara, as well as the Clubsport package, Porsche Dynamic Light System, 90-litre fuel tank, reversing camera, and black 20-inch GT3 centre-lock wheels.
The 991.2 generation of Porsche’s 911 GT3 brought about a number of welcome changes over its predecessor. Porsche heard the cries of the marque’s faithful, and rather than offer the PDK transmission as the only option, a manual gearbox was made available as a no-cost option. Its new 4.0-litre engine was derived from the GT3 Cup cars and produces 500 bhp to match the output of the 991.1 GT3 RS, thanks in part to a new crankshaft and valve gear. Slightly revised aerodynamics, including an all-new diffuser, means that the downforce produced equals that of the 997-generation GT3 RS. Further increasing its track-day credentials are active engine mounts, rear axle, steering, and a limited-slip differential, all offered as standard equipment.
Since leaving Porsche’s facilities in Stuttgart, the GT3 has travelled just under 1,500 km from new and presents in excellent condition both inside and out. Of the modern crop of Porsche GT cars, the cars boasting PTS colour schemes have proven to be the most desirable. Benefitting from an attractive colour hearkening back to 911s of yesteryear, there is no doubt that this would be an incredible car to drive and enjoy, boasting a host of options that only add to its overall driving experience, namely its manual gearbox.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
