Footnotes

  • 'Since its launch in 1999, the Porsche 911 GT3 has been the benchmark against which every other track-focused car has been rated. There are more powerful, more expensive 911s, but the GT3 represents the sports car at its purest and most intense. In fact, all four generations of GT3 arguably rank alongside 1973's legendary 2.7 RS in the annals of greatest 911s.' - Auto Express.

    Intended primarily for racing, though still road legal, the Porsche 911 GT3 - first introduced in 1999 - can trace its ancestry all the way back through a succession of high-performance models to the legendary 911 Carrera RS of 1973. The car takes its name from the FIA's GT3 category of production sports car racing, and has been produced in a variety of versions since its introduction in 1999 on the Type 996 iteration of the perennial 911.

    Following the launch of the original Type 996 GT3, Porsche introduced an even more track-focused variant in 2003: the GT3 RS. Standing for RennSport (literally 'race sport') the 'RS' designation referenced that iconic first-of-the-line model of 40 years previously. In GT3 RS specification, the 3.6-litre flat-six 'Metzger' engine was up-rated, producing around 400bhp, although the claimed output remained unchanged at 318bhp for homologation purposes. The RS was lighter than the 'ordinary' GT3, weigh saving measures including a polycarbonate rear window, and carbon-fibre bonnet and rear wing, while the stock cast-iron brake discs were replaced with ceramic composite rotors for greater fade resistance under competition conditions. RS suspension was adjustable, and the car ran some 3mm lower than the stock GT3.

    For 2006 the GT3 was extensively redesigned and improved on the Type 997 platform. New features included 'zero lift' aerodynamics and Porsche's PASM electronically adjustable active suspension system, specially configured for track use. Porsche claimed a 0-60mph time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 193km/h for the new GT3. By the end of the of year there was also an RS 'homologation special'. Weight-saving measures similar to those seen on the Type 996 RS were applied, while the body was wider than that of the Type 997 GT3, accommodating an increase in rear track. A new 3.8-litre engine was introduced on the 2nd Generation Type 997 GT3 in 2009; maximum output increased to 429bhp, with 444 horsepower available from the RS version.

    And just in case there was any doubt about the Type 997 GT3's abilities as a competition car, in 2006 Porsche's official test driver, rallying ace Walter Röhrl, lapped the spectacular Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit - widely recognised as one of the most demanding tests of man and machine - in an astonishing 7 minutes 42 seconds, then the equal fastest time posted by a production car - a feat that attracted much favourable publicity.

    A 2nd Generation Type 997 GT3 RS with the 444bhp engine, this right-hand drive, UK-market car has covered circa 500 dry miles only and been kept in a dehumidified bubble, preserving it in effectively 'as new' condition. The Porsche is currently in the hands of its second owner, who acquired the car when it was nine months old. A six-speed manual transmission model, '780226' is finished in Carrera White with contrasting Guards Red decals, black velour interior trim, and red seat belts. Noteworthy features include a roll cage in Guards Red; fire extinguisher; PCM including Extended Navigation Module; telephone module with Bluetooth; Sound Package Plus; Sport Chrono Package Plus; cruise control; Universal Audio Interface; floor mats; interior colour coded; windscreen with grey top tint; Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel, gear knob, and door armrests; and carbon rear spoiler in Guards Red.
    Recently serviced at Porsche East London and freshly MoT'd, this stunning low-mileage Porsche supercar is offered with all books/tools and a V5C document.
