This Mk 1 996 GT3 was first delivered by Porsche Melbourne in February 2000 and is still in its original matching engine / chassis number / colour format. The Mk1 GT3 is a very rare car and as such has been sought after by classic car investors worldwide, just 1858 Mk 1's were produced and from that only approx. 308 were right hand drive and when you add the Club Sport option which is how this car was delivered, they become even rarer. The low production numbers were attributed to the car never being offered to the US market as it did not comply at the time with US laws. These were the last of the road going GT3's built in Porsches motorsport department, that means no detail was left untouched and meticulous attention to detail took place. The engine was completely derived from Porsches Le Mans motorsport program, it was no relation of the standard 996 Carrera engine. It contained exotic items such as titanium rods, lightweight pistons, crankshaft and special nitride bearing coatings that allowed the engine to spin to 9,000 rpm. Power was rated at 360HP and peak torque was delivered at 7,200 rpm, so these engines were made to rev. This particular car is a genuine Club Sport optioned car from factory and comes with its original cage and fire extinguisher. In the last few years it has been given a complete glass out respray and now looks like new. The mileage is genuine with original stamped service books included. To bring the car up to a superb standard we have just spent a small fortune on it. Of note the gearbox has been completely rebuilt with new bearings, synchros etc..., it has a new clutch and flywheel, brake discs and pads have been replaced all round, major service completed, suspension set to standard road spec etc... Be quick, this one is ready to go with everything taken care of for its next owner. All work completed by factory trained technicians.

This stunning 997 Turbo was first sold by Porsche Sydney South and has just the 2 mature owners since. It is still in its original matching numbers / guards red with black interior format. Condition is like new and commensurate with the mileage which is 100 % genuine and backed up by a full Porsche specialist history. In fact we have serviced the car since 2011 for its first owner, so we know the car very well. The car is fitted with a number of very subtle 'bolt on' upgrades such as slightly larger turbos, intercoolers, throttle body and free flowing exhaust system. It essentially takes the car to factory GT2RS spec so performance is even more amazing than standard, while maintaining all the ease and drivability of a standard setup. All parts were installed by us and fitted beautifully and the car runs and drives like it left the factory. No crazy turbo noises or exhaust drone, still lovely and quiet just like factory but with a bit more bark when revs come on. If we didn't tell you it was there you would only know when you put your foot down. We have just carried out a full mechanical inspection and can assure the next owner that all servicing is up to date and ready to go. Original books, tool kit, car cover and original rear wing all included in the sale.
