When the Porsche GT3 was launched as a new model in the late 90's, it was an overwhelming success. All GT3s have since become among the most sought after modern collectibles. The famous Mezger engines were the foundation of all the 996 and 997 GT3s. This motor is known for being one of the best engines ever built. It is incredibly reliable and able to handle gobs of power. The RS 4.0 was the last of these special engines.

This example was built in October of 2006 and sold new by Newport Beach Porsche of Orange County on October 19th, 2006. The MSRP was over $121,000 and it was ordered with the following factory options:

Black full leather
Self dimming mirrors and rain sensor
PCM (Porsche Command Module/Navigation) 2.1
Bi-xenon headlamp package
Rear center console in leather
Porsche crest in headrests
Seat belts in guards red
Aluminum foot rest
Sound package plus
Chrono Package plus
Storage compartment lid w/model logo
All exclusive option stitch in deviated color
Dashboard stitching deviated color
Door stitching in deviated color
Door handle stitching in deviated color
Rear side panel in deviated stitching
Seat stitch in deviated color GT3

This GT3 spent the first 5-years/17k-miles living in Orange County and serviced at the selling Porsche dealer. The current owners are a Porsche couple who are very enthusiastic about the brand. They have several Porsches including two other GT3s in their stable. They purchased this example from Hoehn Porsche in Carlsbad on September 28th, 2013 with 20k-miles. For the past 4.5-years, these owners have enjoyed the car locally at Porsche events including driver's education and autocrosses through PCA. The car was never abused and frequently serviced at either the Porsche dealer or some of the top local Independent Porsche specialists. Recent/significant maintenance items include:

Light window tint
Clear bra on front nose and mirrors
Front brake pads, rotors, clean calipers (just done on 2/15/18)
Rear brake pads, rotors, clean calipers (@29k-mi on 4/17)
Replace transmission cooler valve/bleed system
New clutch kit, flywheel, slave cyl, and rear main seal (@29k-mi on 4/17)
DSC sport suspension controller (original PASM controller included)
From TPC (makes active suspension more dynamic)
Sharkwerks stainless steel coolant pipes update/trans service (@31k-mi)
Replaced tire pressure monitor sensors
Aligned and corner balanced
Sharkwerks muffler bypass pipe
Installed Evolution Motorports Intelligent tune (EVOMsit)
Red/black alcantera shift boot (original included)

Recently, the local Porsche dealer performed an inspection and the DME report showed no over-revs above level 2.

In total, nearly $20,000 was invested in this GT3 to make sure its services were current and everything was properly tuned.

The exterior of this GT3 is immaculate and certainly an indication of how well it was cared for and respected. The paint looks fantastic with minimal signs of use. It was measured with a paint meter and all metal panels are original (see pics). The front nose clear bra has helped further protect the paint and there are a few light blemishes on the clear bra. The glass is all original including the windshield, which has a few chips that have been professionally filled (see pics). The 19" aftermarket wheels are wearing near new/full tread Nitto R compound tires and the brakes also have nearly full life. One of the center caps is missing.

The interior is equally as nice. The leather sport seats show some minimal wear on the driver seat exit bolster, but no tears. The alcantara steering wheel and shifter are also showing some expected wear. The headliner, carpet, dash, and door panels are all in near perfect condition. There are two sets of floor mats (red and black - see pic). All the gauges, buttons, lights, radio, a/c, etc. function properly.

This GT3 exemplifies why it is one of my personal favorites. Everything is so crisp and analog. It's a blast to drive and is incredibly responsive. The upgraded suspension control module is fantastic. It makes street driving smoother, yet more adaptable. It's able to adjust all 4 shocks independently of one another depending on the surface and what the car's doing. It's pretty remarkable. The power is as you would expect…intoxicating. The improved throttle response is fantastic as it easily climbs through the revs. The shifting is tight and direct with that nice notchy feel, which inspires confidence. The brakes have excellent pedal feel and no fading or pulling. This GT3 feels very well sorted and ready to be enjoyed.

California registration is paid through December 2018 and it passes CA strict smog test.

This GT3 comes with all the owner's manuals, all recent service records, factory tools/tire repair kit, original window sticker, extra key, original shift boot, two pairs of front floor mats, and original PASM controller.

Furthermore, the following items are not installed on the car and are available for an additional fee:

" Additional wheels
" Pagid performance pads with extra rotors

For those who asked, we do have a DME report from the Porsche dealer that was just run. No level 3 or high over revs and only a handful of 1 and 2 (less than one time ever near redline).
