Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (2011) video review

Published: 23 June 2011 Updated: 26 January 2015

Watch Jethro Bovingdon’s video review of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0. It’s a fitting swansong to the current, 997 family of 911s – one final blast before the new 991 arrives at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show.

The RS 4.0 costs £128,466 and Porsche will build just 600 of them (they’re already sold out, sadly). That’s a lot for a 911, but it is the last we’ll see of the ‘Metzger’ flat six, the legendary motorsport engine that powered many of the finest Porsches of recent years and which won the Le Mans GT1 category in 1998. What a send-off.

You can read Jethro’s full 10-page feature in the new July 2011 issue of CAR Magazine out now. We drive the GT3 RS 4.0 to the wilds of Exmoor and then back to Silverstone to meet its inspiration – the 1973 3.0 RSR. Click here for a free digital preview of the new issue of CAR.
