How many 997 GT3 RS's in the world

I saw one on the track last week, at a PCA DE event. The car was wicked. In the rain too. It was bright green. The plate said "ribbett". :)

What is the main difference between a GT3 and a GT3 RS??

a lightweight single mass flywheel

broader rear track

12 o clock on the the steering wheel is painted yellow

plexi-glass rear windscreen

roll cage

the camber i think is setup more for track use

and they primarily came in 4 colours,

silver with orange wheels and decals

black with orange wheels and decals

green with black wheels and decals

orange with black wheels and decals

1900 worldwide ... mmm .... im so desperate to know how many worldwide ... the stats i have is 200 in the states and 14 here in South Africa ... LOL!

Yeah, and how many of these have already been wrecked??

thats true and with this car im sure they are a few

12 o clock on the the steering wheel is painted yellow

Can I do this to my Boxster S over the weekend and then call her a "Boxster S RS"????? :D

LOL! ... you just need the "klak-klak-klak" idle sound from the install of a lightweight single mass flywheel then you officially have a Boxster S RS !!!: )

I don't think that is a real one. A true Porsche lover would never park it like that! :lol: And they would never go furniture shopping.

Always an end spot, far away from other cars and shopping carts. Up-wind on a windy day.

In the USA and Canada, the GT3 RS did not come with a rear roll cage.

A handful of owners have purchased the rear cages, but obviously not all.

I am guessing that this black/orange/orange one was spotted in Toronto?

Regarding the original question....

I know that there were 413 total 2007 + 2008 GT3 RS sold in the USA.

I believe it was something like 300 2007s + 103 2008s.

I believe Porsche AG sells 40% of their cars to the US market,

so my guess would be that they made around 1000 total, 2007+2008 models.

I would also like to know the real numbers produced.

I'd bet South Africa has more GT3 RS per capita than anywhere on earth.

If you have any info for the registry, send it my way...

so you are saying there's only 1 GT3 RS in all of ontario based on your registry? I find that hard to believe

I believe it. GT3 RS owners either lock their cars up in the garage and keep as queens or are track junkies. They do not have time for the internet! :D

The white RS currently for sale at Pfaff Motors in Ontario was originally sold in Florida.

It's listed in the USA section of the registry
