This Paint-to-Sample Porsche 911 GT3 Might Just Be Our New Favorite Spec

Most of the 911 GT3 owners go for one of the usual Porsche Motorsport colors but when a tastefully-done paint-to-sample example came on our radar, we couldn’t feel but a little weak at the knees.

This 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is a 991.2 generation model to be offered by RM Auctions in their London sale on October 24. It’s finished in the lovely Sepia Brown, a shade that was widely used on 911s during the 1970s. It currently rides on a set of tasty gold alloy wheels, with the car also accompanied by its factory black 20-inch items.

Other options include the desirable six-speed manual transmission, lightweight bucket seats in leather and Alcantara, the Clubsport package, the bigger 90-liter fuel tank, and more.

The Porsche 991.2 GT3 marked the return of the manual transmission to the track-focused model, with the company offering it as a no-cost option in addition to the standard seven-speed PDK. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that makes 493 HP (500 PS) and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm) of torque.

Performance is quite strong, offering a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.3 seconds if you’re fast enough with your hands and feet, while flat out it’ll do 198 mph (318 km/h). Every 991.2 GT3 also comes with goodies like active engine mounts, rear-axle steering and of course a limited-slip differential.

The car is sold from its original owner and currently shows a very low 1.500 km (932 miles) on the odometer. If you always wanted a manual 911 GT3 that stood out from the sea of its white, red and blue siblings, then you might just found your perfect car.

    Like it, dont love it.
    Doesnt capture the original brown of the 1970’s 911 somehow. Its unique, which is always welcomed, but somehow fails to look special/beautiful.

  • Munchma Quchi

    will be tough one to resale

  • AggregateofDeplorables??

    Gorgeous thing though the front air dam really kills the 70s vibe. Manual is righteous!

  • Technom3

    Geez that is hideous.

  • TheBelltower

    A 911 is one of the very few cars that can pull-off these unique colors. This particular color is one you’d get only if you own other 911s also.

  • Ae Neuman

  • Dr Concerned

    Semi metallic feces?

    • Bo Hanan

      Baby Poo Metallic.

  • James Denz

    Metallic bronze and brown can be alluring. This Porsche however looks gross to me, almost nauseating. It doesn’t look like the 1970s brown I remember either.

    • Ben

      It isn’t. Seems too flat.

  • Scherpereel Clement

    Humm the spec is great and all but the color looks like Kim Kardashian’s skin care ! Or like a fudged chocolate, it’s making me a bit sick of the stomack !

  • Nastinupe1911

    Needs side decals and a tan interior.

  • Not bad. But I’d prefer mine in solid black, please.
