I don't much like yellow, red. But orange... orange on a GT3RS (or Gallardo) does it for me. I once saw a GT3RS on a lot that was the opposite color scheme -- black with the orange accents and wheels, and I even loved that. Orange wheels, and I'd sport it all day long. I don't get it..

Maybe it comes down to this. The car is so undeniably legit. It wears those colors because it f*cking can.

Thats EXACTLY it. Because only a car like that can pull off a color like that! Its like the super model that can wear next to nothing and still look stunning. Everybody else is just hatin...

2007 GT3 RS (997.1) are known to have RMS leaks. This topic was actually discussed on this forum. Here's the thread: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...ight=997.1+GT3

Take a look at this website (RMS issue. Scroll down and read):
http://www.gt3rsregistry.com/2008GT3RS/vin/2196.htm

If you read on, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. replied to the RMS leak and said:

Please be advised that GT3 engines have a design which is unique from other 911's because of it's exposure to very high
RPM's. The rear main seal of these engines is held tight by a vacuum created inside the engine block. If the vehicle is not
used for prolonged periods of time this vacuum pressure may decrease allowing a small amount of oil to seep past the
seal. Due to this special design, oil seepage can occur in GT3 vehicles that are not driven on a regular basis.

Your warranty manual indicates that your responsibility for normal vehicle use is for your vehicle to be driven daily over
a distance of several miles. Your vehicle was designed with the assumption that it would be used within these guidelines.
If it is not, you may experience some oil seepage; however, this is not a defect in the vehicle but simply a result of lack of
use.


To summarize if you own a GT3, it should be driven daily over a distance of several miles. If not, the rear main seal will start to leak. Sharkwerks however have found a solution to that problem.

OP,
The Cayman R is not bad, but if you really want a GT3 RS, just wait for a used 997.2 instead.

haha, well put. A legit track car with a roll cage can pull off any color. I totally agree about the orange, too. I like the green a lot as well, which is about as aggressive as you can get.
