Porsche has made a bunch of track-ready 911s over the years, but the 997-generation GT3 RS 4.0 stands out as one of the greatest. Purpose-built, incredibly capable, and built in limited numbers, it's now a highly desirable collector car. This particular GT3 RS 4.0, originally owned by Jerry Seinfeld, might be the most desirable of all. It's coming up for auction via RM Sotheby's later this month. You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
This car was the very last of the 600 4.0s ever built, according to the sellers at RM Sotheby's. It was also the most expensively optioned, with a one-off black paint job, an extended black leather interior with contrasting silver stitching, and an unpainted carbon fiber front hood signed by Andreas Preuninger, Hans Mezger, and the head of Porsche Exclusive. Also, if you haven't noticed already, the stock "4.0" decals were replaced with more subtle "RS 4.0" stickers placed on the lower front part of each door. Those options, combined with a few other Porsche extras, added up to an original MSRP of $245,515.
Seinfeld put over 5000 miles on the car, owning it all the way up until June of 2017, when it was sold to a collector. Now, it's coming up for sale on October 27th at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia as a part of the company's 70th anniversary celebrations. It'll sell alongside the Paris-Dakar Porsche 959 race car and red 959 prototype we wrote about back in June, as well as a bundle of other rare, exciting Porsche-branded vehicles. RM Sotheby's .
