How Many GT4RS Will Be Made By Porsche? (Answered)

If you’re a fan of high-performance vehicles or are a Porsche enthusiast, or maybe you’re both – you will have heard about the GT4 RS. And if you were hoping to buy one, the panic will have probably already set in that you simply won’t be able to get your hands on one. So you’re here to find out how many GT4RS will be made.

Porsche loves to run a limited edition production line which can make highly sought-after cars like the Porsche GT4 RS extremely hard to come by. I wouldn’t get too worked up over it. But you might want to explore the idea of speaking to your dealer sooner rather than later.

This blog post will cover a ton of information on the Porsche GT4 RS, how it built off of the already phenomenal GT4, and what you can expect in terms of production numbers. Read ahead to learn how many GT4RS will be made by Porsche.


  • The Porsche GT4 RS is a high-performance track-oriented sports car based on the 718 Cayman GT4, which is derived from the GT3.
  • The 2023 GT4 RS started customer distribution in late 2022, but shipping and logistics issues delayed some deliveries.
  • Porsche plans to produce around 7,000 units of the GT4 RS globally.
  • Limited production numbers are determined by Porsche’s estimated production capabilities, and if demand is high, they may increase production.
  • The GT4 RS offers significantly superior performance compared to the standard GT4, with more horsepower, torque, and a higher redline.
  • Pre-ordering is advisable for securing one of the first 7,000 GT4 RS units, but additional units may become available in the secondary market.
  • Porsche enthusiasts should inform their dealer of their interest in the GT4 RS to potentially join a waiting list for new releases.

The Origins Of The GT4 RS

The Porsche GT4 RS is a high-performance track/race-centric sports car based on the framework of the standard Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 which in turn is based on the GT3. The Cayman was designed from the get-go to be a fixed-roof alternative to the Porsche Boxster with track racing at the forefront of the design team’s mind.

Since we are talking about an RS model you know it is going to come with several enhancements over the regular GT4, we’ll get on to those later. The GT4 RS comes from an incredibly prestigious line of high-performance Porsches, so there is no surprise that there has been a lot of buzz surrounding when it would come, and now that it has, how many Porsche will actually make.

When Did The GT4 RS Come Out?

The latest version of the Porsche GT4 RS (the 2023 GT4 RS) technically began customer distribution at the tail end of 2022. Since they started distribution in November and December is normally a pretty “dead” month it really started to pick up in January.

Problems with logistics and shipping have meant that while the GT4 RS technically was supposed to be arriving at customers’ doors months ago many people still haven’t had their RS delivered.

And many more haven’t even been able to put an order in for one as there is such a big product backlog. So, take heart in knowing that the GT4 RS is out and we can get some real-world reviews to see whether or not it lives up to the pre-release hype (it does).

How Many GT4RS Will Be Made by Porsche?

Porsche has said that they will probably produce about 7000 units of the Porsche GT4 RS worldwide. This means if you are in any one country, you are likely to see just a few hundred units made available for the whole country. I know at the beginning of the blog post we said not to worry about limited production numbers, and that is still kind of true.

But wait, didn’t I just say that there would only be 7000 made? How can I not worry with that information? Well, there is a lot of belief among Porsche enthusiasts that Porsche will up their production numbers significantly if there is enough interest shown in the line.

And, because there has been a bit of stagnation in some of the rare metal markets it means that Porsche is likely to run the GT4 RS production lines for more years than they might otherwise have done as they will move on to the next-gen of the car a little later than anticipated.

Why Is The GT4 RS So Limited?

It always sucks when you see that a car you want is only going to be released in limited numbers. However, that’s not really the case with the GT4 RS. I know, I know, we literally just told you that Porsche planned to make 7000 units.

But, not for the reasons you might think. That 7000 figure actually comes from Porsches estimated production capabilities rather than an arbitrary number of vehicles that they want to produce.

This leads back to the point we highlighted above if the demand is there, the factories are still set up to produce GT4 RSs and the next-gen vehicles are still a few years away; why wouldn’t Porsche massively increase their production numbers?

The GT4 RS vs GT4

The GT4 RS doesn’t simply throw everything the GT4 did in the trash and start fresh. The GT4 RS is built on the GT4 in all the best ways as you would hope that they would. Other than some pretty clear visual differences, the GT4 RS also has some pretty significantly superior performance metrics.

The GT4 RS has about 80 more brake horsepower and 30 more torque, and the redline has been bumped up a huge 1000 RPMs. The GT4 RS is made to race. That much is clear.

Pre-Order The GT4 RS To Get One?

If you wanted one of the first 7000 GT4 RSs released then yeah you probably should have pre-ordered one. But, that is not to say you won’t be able to get one without having done so. If they release more GT4 RSs, then there is a good chance that some will make it to general sale.

And, the longer they keep producing them the more will make it into circulation in the secondary market. If you still feel the itch to buy one and don’t want to risk it, it’s worth letting your dealer know that you want to be on the waiting list even if the list doesn’t exist. Yet.

Our Verdict On How Many GT4RS Will Be Made

As you can see despite the production numbers for the GT4 RS being an estimated 7000 units there is a ton of evidence that those numbers might increase.

Don’t worry if you feel like you missed the boat, another one could be rocking up with another few thousand any day now. It’s important to let your dealer know if you want to be on the waiting list for the new releases of the GT4 RS.

Whether that list actually exists or not is another question. As these cars are usually only reserved for existing Porsche clients that have built a reputation with their dealer over the years.
