Description

The 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model manufactured from 1997 to 2006. It was replaced by the 997 in 2004 but the high performance variants remained in production until 2006. The 996 GT3 RS is a very rare car collectors car. There was only 682 units produced.
The 996 was first all new chassis platform since the original 911 and it had a completely new first water-cooled 911 engine. The first 996 had 3,4 liter engine with 296 hp. In 2000 Porsche introduced the first 996 GT3 version with 3.6-liter engine and 355 hp at 7,200 rpm. This 3.6-litre ‘Mezger’ unit was more similar to the Porsche 962’s racing engine than it was with the 3.4 engine of the 996 Carrera. 1.858 units of the 996.1 GT3 were produced before the 996 received its mid-life upgrade. When the 996.2 generation came, the GT3 followed and the 996.2 GT3 debuted in 2003. Along the remodeled headlights and intakes, as well as different rear wing, there was also a boost in engine output: from 355 hp to 381 hp at 7,400 rpm.
2003 was also important year because Porsche decided to revive again the ’RS’ badge and stick it to the 996.2 GT3. The 996 RS got the red or blue RS decals and rims sprayed in the same color as these decals. But this wasn't just for show, although the output was the same as standard GT3 at 381 horsepower. Porsche worked on 996 GT3 RS with the suspension, the steering, and substracted some more weight. The dampers are stiffer, the front and rear control arms are adjustable, the windows in the back were made out of polycarbonate to save some more weight. The bigger wing is made out of carbon fiber.
This 996 GT3 RS was delivered in October 2004 by the Finnish Porsche dealer AutoCarrera to the Finnish customer who still owns the car. The owner has been for long time a very active member of the Finnish Porsche community. His dedication is shown in registration number CMX-1 which is in Roman numbers means 911.
