A final salute to the venerated Mezger engine as well as the ultimate evolution of Porsche’s 997, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 was produced in a limited series of just 600 cars worldwide featuring more aggressive aerodynamics, unique trim, a 6-speed manual gearbox, and a special 4.0-liter flat-six producing up to 500 HP. This Carrara White 2011 example, #214, was particularly well-equipped from the factory including optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), the Front Axle Lift System, Sport Chrono Package Plus, GT Silver Metallic wheels, and the Extended Carbon Package. Rigorously maintained and accompanied by supporting records, this highly collectible GT3 RS 4.0 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York showing just over 4k miles on the odometer.
This GT3 comes finished in its debut theme of Carrara White with contrasting red and silver accents and lettering as well as optional GT Silver Metallic painted wheels. Compared to the standard GT3 RS, the 4.0 version sports front dive planes for additional downforce to accommodate a more aggressively angled rear wing. The factory 19” center-lock wheels come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and a service record shows two pressure sensors were replaced earlier in 2021. Clear paint protection film has been applied over the full front end and ahead of the rear wheels, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.
The cockpit of the 4.0 is trimmed in a unique combination of Black leather and Red Alcantara including carbon-fiber bucket seats and special lightweight door panels with red pull straps. Other details include carbon fiber door sills with the “RS 4.0” logo, a serialized limitation plaque above the glovebox, and a special titanium blue central tachometer dial with gear shift indicator and model logo. This example features the Extended Carbon Package with air vents in carbon fiber, belt outlet trim in carbon fiber, and a rear center console in carbon fiber. Deviated stitching spans the dashboard, door panels, center console, and rear compartment. A complete list of factory options can be found below:
The special 4.0-liter flat-six Mezger engine features a crankshaft borrowed from the GT3 RSR race car as well as forged pistons, titanium connecting rods, a free-flowing sport exhaust, and modified air intake. Up to 500 HP and 339 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission with unique gear ratios, single-mass flywheel, and a limited-slip differential. Dynamic Engine Mounts and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) come standard while this example also features optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) and the Sport Chrono Package Plus. Accompanying service records show a lifetime of routine maintenance including a service invoice from SST Auto of Connecticut in 2021 showing an oil, brake fluid, and coolant change as well as drive belt replacements.
This sale will include a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the original window sticker, owner’s manuals, and a clean title.

@HillClimber72 yes. That was not a bid. If we don’t reach reserve we contact the highest bidders before placing the car in to DealTank. If a satisfactory number is met the car is sold, similar to many live auctions.
@HillClimber72 When reserve is not met, PCAR tries to work out a deal with the high bidder and seller. If they agree on a price, they post that as a final bid amount and mark the car as sold.
How does this site allow the final bid to come in 15 minutes after the bidding had been stopped? And why isn't the clock set for another two minutes after this late arriving bid?

Interesting . I believe this car was just sold at Sloan’s and already for sale again . Hope an end user gets it
@porschecollector Never said I was a collector.
Dealer is the highest bidder on this thing , that should tell you something
@HillClimber72 my friend has a 4.0 with comfort seats and drives it. Has over 15k miles. Life is short
@HillClimber72 right than you need to get AC delete and radio delete AND 100 miles on it , rather than 2500 or 4K , but these cars with under 1k miles are all 900 plus
@porschecollector Most all 4.0's won't be driven, that's just the reality. I know the person that bought the AC, radio delete car and he's not driving it. I only know one other guy besides myself who drives their 4.0. Yes sometimes AC and a radio are nice to have, but collectors can see things differently.
@bankownedguy I agree 100 percent !
Guys the 911R is an amazing machine no doubt, but it is trying to be what this car is. My opinion (have driven both extensively) is that this car will be worth at least twice what the R will be. Production numbers alone dictate that.
Bid in the amount of $690,000
@HillClimber72 @dcd0611 @hillclimber72 if you guys like driving a car with no AC and staring at a hole
In the center of the dash than I guess it’s more valuable for you
Bid in the amount of $681,000
Bid in the amount of $680,000
Bid in the amount of $675,000
@dcd0611 I would agree. How many were ordered with radio and AC delete? Very few, if more than one. That car also had around 2,500 miles if I remember.
I think the no A/C and radio delete are believed to make them more rare and thus more valuable .
In any case whoever purchases this car for whatever it is sold for now even if it is over market value for today and your looking to hold the car , there’s no wrong price you can pay for one of these cars today , they are the best ever made in my opinion
@mc11040 last year there was a gt2rs that sold for 515k here and than the same car sold for I believe 680k a red 2rs here on pcarmarket , so these cars when they do pop us the market shifts on them , as per the 4.0 cars on bat they didn’t even have Navs or aC I believe they were each about 15k lower in the msrp even the car that did 680 if you compare it to that car if it did 680 in December , def worth 750 now
Bid in the amount of $660,000
@porschecollector Got it. The 11k-mile one had basically no options; the one that sold for $680k did have PCCBs and few other options. The DME reports showed zeroes on both cars, but you may personally know more about the specific car/owner.
@mc11040 those cars had absolutely no options , bad DME reports 12k mile car was a track rat , can’t compare to the level of quality this car is , plus it was last December ? I wouldn’t compare pricing to last December pricing especially
On a car that hasn’t popped up for sale
In the last 6 months
I would think the closer comps would be the actual RS 4.0’s that sold in December - one at $680k and one at $530k (11k miles).
@dcd0611 they did make more across the world , but the same amount for the states , the 4.0 was always 100k more , and that car had 2700 miles I believe and didn’t even have bucket seats
Interesting . I believe Porsche made approx 100 more GT3RS 4.0 than GT2RS 600 vs 500 and I believe that 2RS had sub 1k miles .
In all reality , this car was always about 100k more market value than the 2011 GT2RS , as these cars don’t pop up for sale almost ever , the last gt2rs sold for 780.000 on bring a trailer a few months ago there hasn’t been for sale since , this car realistically should Atleast fetch 800 Wich would be a good deal probably in my mind , I guess we shall see what this beauty does , good luck everyone

Just want to thank everyone for the bids and views on this truly special automobile. As the final day approaches, we would like anyone in the Northeast who is interested to know that the car has been sent to PCARMARKET headquarters in NY for the photographs and it still resides there until the auction ends. Feel free to arrange a last minute inspection if desired, this car is in impeccable shape, I cannot stress that enough. Best of luck to all!
For the US cars with Carrara white exterior, 22 came with black wheels and 28 with Gt Silver. The rest were with white wheels.
@gregcasals most white 4.0 cars came standard with white wheels , black I don’t think from factory on a white car , I mean maybe in Europe there’s only 130 of these for the US total
@allthingsporsches I am confident there are also 4.0's with black rims as well.
I mean this example
One of the best optioned 4.0 cars I think I have ever seen
@dcd0611 they all have white rims , the silver rims is actually the rare ones
@Silver930 with sub 1k and pts yes :)
Do you have 2 4.0s ? One with white rims please ?
