Marketed between 2004 and 2013, the Porsche 997 was introduced by Porsche as the successor of the much-maligned 996. The complaints about the revised ‘fried egg’ headlamps on the previous model were addressed by reverting to a more traditional oval design, along with a multitude of mechanical upgrades and a wide array of configurations, from the powerful ‘Turbo S’ to the track-focused ‘RS’ variants, each with a particular focus on the driving experience.
At the end of 2011, Porsche revealed the 997’s final and ultimate iteration: the GT3 RS 4.0, made in a small batch of only 600 cars. Utilizing a larger displacement and the crankshaft from the GT3 RSR, the 4.0 produced nearly 500 glorious, naturally-aspirated horsepower. To this day, it remains one of the most sought-after modern 911’s, becoming a ‘Holy Grail’ in its own right.
This remarkable Grand Prix white GT3 4.0 was delivered new in Germany, and has been serviced at Porsche dealers in Germany and Switzerland throughout its life. An accident-free, mechanically sound car, it comes with tools, manuals, spare key, and a fresh service (April 2023) at the Porsche dealer in Abu Dhabi.
