2004 GT3 vs 93 RS America


Recommended Posts

Anyone able to compare the street ride of an '04 GT3 with a '93 RS America? I'm living in Indonesia and will be heading back to the states in a year and am interested in the GT3. I briefly owned the '93 RSA a few years ago. Thanks!

I have a RSA and a '04 GT3. The RSA has been lowered w/H&K springs and the GT3 ride height is at the low setting. To a professional race driver there may be big difference but I don't notice much in terms of street ride. However, they have very different handling charactiristics, on center feel, and steering sensitivity. Hope this helps a little.

BTW - I lived in Jakarta for three years. Very interesting country.

Owner of both here as well. Very simply, the GT3 takes some serious skill to drive fast and at the limit but if you have that skill it is VERY easy to drive. The RSA on the other, regarding of how much skill you have will be an incredible workout when you finish a session. The lack of power steering, the shorter wheelbase, and the lack of power all contribute to you having to really work to get the car going toward the limit.

When I would be done from a session in the GT3 that everything went well I would feel so refreshed and pumped on andrenaline.

When I would be done from a session in the RSA that everything went well I would feel like I went 12 rounds with a boxer and got my tail kicked in. I would be spent mentally and physically.

With that said, they were both a blast to drive. If I had to choose, the GT3 wins hands down. Just nothing else like it.

Dunno about the US

but in Asia it seems that the 996 is a fast depreciating asset to have even gt2 and 3s are dropping fast in prices with the launch of every new 997

But them 964s and 993s are holding their value very well some are even appreciating

An m/t 964 is now worth about as much as a 996 early model!
