THE PORSCHE 991

Somewhat confusingly, the seventh generation of Porsche's perennial 911 sports car was designated 'Type 991', succeeding the Type 997. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011, the Type 991 is only the third all-new platform for the 911 since the original of 1963, the second being the Type 996 of 1999. Its development overseen by Porsche's Chief Designer, Michael Mauer, the Type 991 represented a logical progression from the Type 997 and was slightly larger than its immediate predecessor while retaining the classic 911 look. The most important chassis change was to the wheelbase, which increased in length by 100mm, while a new transaxle enabled the rear wheels to be relocated 76mm rearwards relative to the engine, improving both weight distribution and cornering performance. Transmission options comprised six-speed or seven-speed manual gearboxes, with Porsche's dual-clutch (PDK) shift optional on the latter.

Porsche's signature 'flat-six' engine was available in three different capacities in the Type 991 (3.4-liters, 3.8-liters, and 4.0-liters) with power outputs ranging from the entry-level Carrera's 345bhp up to the Turbo S's 552 horsepower. Following its established practice, Porsche also offered Cabriolet, Targa, GT3 and GT3 RS variants to cater for all customer demands ranging from soft-top boulevard cruiser to track-day assault weapon.

In September 2015, the Type 991 was introduced in revised and restyled form for the 2016 model year, becoming the '991.2' in factory parlance. To the concern of some traditionalists, turbo-charged engines were now standardized throughout the range: a 3.0-liter unit in the Carrera and Carrera S, and a 3.8-liter one in the Turbo models. The purists did not have to wait long for their concerns to be assuaged, as in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show Porsche unveiled the limited edition 911 R, featuring the 'old' GT3 RS's normally aspirated 4.0-litre 493bhp engine and a new six-speed manual gearbox.

Porsche introduced the 991 GT3 at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013, and then the facelifted 991.2 GT3 at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Extensive changes were made to the engine allowing a 9,000 rpm redline from the 4.0-liter flat-six engine. Porsche's focus was on reducing internal friction to improve throttle response. Compared to the 991.1, the rear spoiler was higher and located further back to be more effective. The 991.2 GT3 brought back the choice between a manual transmission or PDK dual clutch transmission. A Touring version was also introduced which came standard with the comfort package and the manual transmission along with the deletion of the fixed rear wing and employing an electronically operated rear wing instead.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This stunning Porsche 991.2 GT3 Touring benefits from having had just one caring owner from new, and its stunning Paint-to-Sample custom exterior color of Pantone Blue 296C non-metallic W50; of which this car is believed to be the sole example made for the US market. The consignor ordered the new Porsche 991.2 GT3 in 2018 to his specifications, and the car was finally completed at the Porsche factory under the special wishes program for delivery from the Riverside, California based Porsche agency in February of 2019. In addition to the $12,830 exciting special-order color option, the 991.2 GT3 Touring was fitted with the 6-Speed GT Sport Manual gearbox to navigate the powerful 500bhp 4.0-Liter engine. Other desirable options on this car's build order included the custom Tailoring option, extended range fuel tank, heated seats, front axle lift system, fire extinguisher, Xenon headlights, Bose surround sound system, Sport Chrono Stopwatch and Chrono package with preparation for lap trigger, white faced instrument dials, sun visors in Alcantara, fuel cap with aluminum look finish and color-coded keys.

While in the care of the current and sole owner, the Pantone blue GT3 has been meticulously cared for and serviced every few thousand miles by the specialists at Newport Auto Center, most recently in October of 2020. Today the car has less than 14,000 miles on the odometer and presents in stunning condition inside and out. Believed to be to sole US example in this spectacular Paint-to-Sample color, the Porsche is offered with its factory accessories including owner's manuals, fitted Porsche car cover, the original window sticker, CARFAX report and receipts from Newport Auto Center for the service work performed. This one-owner, Paint-to-sample 991.2 GT3 stick shift is still under factory warranty, and really has pedigree like few new cars on the road today.
