Also a GT3-RSR won the ALMS GT or GT2 driver's championship in 2005, 2006, and 2008, 2009, and 2010.

Should I continue?
Please do!

Since the introduction of the BMW M3 (E92) GT2 and the Ferrari F458 Italia the 911 is no longer dominant among the GTs. Those victories in the ALMS only prove that the F430 - which was the contender from Ferrari - was and still is no match for the 997. The F458 is much better than the former F430. The same for BMW, the BMW M3 (E92) GT2 was introduced only in 2009 (after a two-year absence by the brand).

Just like in the GTE Am and GTE Pro categories, in the former - won by Porsche - the contender from Ferrari is the F430 whereas in the latter - won by Ferrari - the contender is the F458.

Those two cars raised the bar in the GTs class. The 911 is lagging behind. Period.
