  1. I am stating when the RS name is used. If the GT3 had have weighed less than the base Carrera, it may well have been called the 996 Carrera RS. The GT3 RS weighed less and had more power than the GT3, therefore Porsche felt it was worthy to add an RS to the script to become the GT3 RS. I am purely talking about the naming convention.
  2. It weighed less than the GT3, hence with GT3 RS the GT3 is included in its name, not just 996 Carrera RS. Same with the 997 GT2 RS, it has more power and weighs less than the normal 997 GT2.
  3. I am not saying the GT3 isn't a special car nor a big step up from the base Carrera model. What I am saying is the RS badge has always been used on models that had more power AND weighed less than their equivalent non-RS sibling.
  4. My belief is for the 996 GT3 Mk1 to wear the RS moniker, it needed to weigh less than the 996.1 Carrera 2. The 996 GT3 RS weighed less than the then current GT3 (996 GT3 Mk2) hence is entitled to be labelled as such.
  5. Yellow. IIRC Today Tonight videoed it and ran it on their broadcast.
  6. Do you know if it is the same one that Fitzy raced against the plane on the airstrip as part of the local launch of the GT3?

  8. The Count Rossi 917 (917-030) changed hands last year for a record figure, I don't think this will get anywhere near that but should get a big number result.
  9. Friends and colleagues of mine swear by Maxwell Wang. Having worked with them before, I can also vouch for Auto Attention for car detailing.
  10. There was a slantnose with a for sale sign parked outside the 356 Concours at Como Park a few weeks ago. It looked pretty rough but I took a couple of quick photos and the owner's number if you are interested.
  11. Sorry Jason I didn't upload the video, I just found it on youtube
  12. Good luck with the sale Jono! For anyone interested it is a stunning vehicle: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cfkzlnoed3mtbar/0E5A5340.JPG?dl=0
