2008 Porsche 997.1 GT3 - $89,985

2008 Porsche 997.1 GT3

Miles: 46,300

VIN: WP0AC29928S792080

It's time to sell my favorite car to date. This is the ideal GT3 for someone wanting a car they can actually take out and drive, not hide away in the garage. This 997.1 GT3 is not for a collector as it has some mileage but has been very well maintained and is fantastic condition, both cosmetically and mechanically. 

Car received regular oil changes (at least once a year or 5k miles) and had all maintenance performed by the local Porsche dealership or by Vision Motorsports (one of SoCal's top independent Porsche specialists for water-cooled cars). Clean and Clear California Title from New. It's a mostly 1-Owner car (7 Years, 40k miles) that has NO Level 2 Over-Revs. The first owner only kept the car about 5 months/900 miles before trading it back into the Porsche dealer for a turbo. The next owner then purchased it with the intention of using it as a part time daily driver. This is the longest he has kept a Porsche. He simply fell in love with it. In his words, "it could do everything."  

The paint is all original and verified with a paint meter. It is in very good condition with minimal chips and signs of wear. There are some light road chips on the hood and on lower rear flares (plastic area - see pics). The front plastic spoiler lip shows wear (very common and only $300 to replace). The wheels wear Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires with more than 75% life remaining. The brakes are near new as well. The interior is equally nice with hardly any signs of use. The sport seats are like new with hardly any signs of use. The carpet, dash, headliner, and door panels look fresh. The alcantera wrapped steering wheel was showing some wear, so the last owner had it professionally re-wrapped in leather. All the buttons and features function properly. The A/C blows ice cold as well.  The best part about this GT3 is the way it drives. There is something about a Porsche that is driven on a regular basis. It feels much more alive than some of the low-mile examples I've experienced. The throttle response has a great snap to it and everything feels tight and responsive. The steering provides the perfect amount of feedback. This car deserves the name Black Beauty as it wears the shade well, looking both elegant yet purposeful. We will be sad to let this car go but look forward to sharing this incredible car with its new owner. This GT3 comes with the owner's manuals, service records, factory tools/tire repair kit, original muffler with tip, car cover, and an extra key.
