    Australian spec cars were full fat as well. 
    Im guessing that if you imported it, you’d be in it more.
    Bring in to sell, yep - a bit of a struggle - and some of the feedback here illustrates that.  To own and enjoy - no brainer.  What would you replace it with??
    Here’a the thing.  There’s a dirty little bastard child UK  import 996 GT3 RS with “massive” k’s on the market right now asking just a little less than 2 pure breeds being sold by CTS and Duttons. It might be a little heavy on asking price or Duttons/CTS ask is low (suppressed snigger).  The point I’m trying to support - and the argument has its Swiss cheese elements - is that for truly rare and special cars, the location of country of first delivery is becoming a little less of an issue.  Higher k’s - yep, will stay up there as a factor when comparing.
    Of course my sanctimonious piety would go out the window if I were a buyer of that 996 and would be whipping the import/high k’s horse for all I’m worth - its off a dealer after all!  
    Not that I’m looking at it of course ....

    Edgy I was with you, then referred to my (Australian) 1999/2000 Porsche 911 GT3 Product Information (bible) Porsche refer to: Clubsport & Comfort pack GT3s.
    Note: Clubsport & Comfort pack GT3s ~ same original RRP,  same engine, same power transmission, same brakes, same chassis and suspension, same exhaust, same wheels, same tyres etc  all good❤️

    Rarity doesn't equal desirability. 
    In relation to history, its only part of the equation when valuing a car and I can't see books being worth a 20% premium. Maybe high end collector grade stuff but not on a 120k odd GT3.

    I’ve been keeping a close eye on the market too but I haven’t seen that many CS’s at all, maybe 4-5 cars - 3 of those have been ex nations cup cars. 
    Standard road going 996.1 GT3 clubby’s have become quite rare. They used to be everywhere!

    You lose the investor buyers at ‘import’ and ‘80k kms’. Like it or not they’re the lions share of buyers of this car, not track junkies.
    Personally I think you’d have to be nuts to drop anything over 300 on this car as of today unless you were committing to a 10 year hold. Aussie delivered ones are not rare, and they do come up frequently. 10 years from now will probably be a different story however.

    A couple of comments.
    That’s a high price especially considering the kms. i would want know what country the car originates from. Originally a Singapore car or some other country?
    It has ceramic brakes so with 80,000 kms on the clock, I would want to have the discs measured to see how much life is left in them because a new set of rotors will cost you $20k+
    Besides all this, you will not be able to bring into OZ under the personal import scheme if you have not owned the car for 12 moths overseas and driven it 6,000kms. And even then, if it qualifies, you will have to pay 10% duty, 10% GST and 33% LCT on top of the $370K which means once landed, the car will owe you at least $470k making it completely unviable as a resale into the OZ market.  
    CTS recently had a 16,000km car for sale for $350K and it probably sold for much less so the starting price on the Singapore car is OTT.

    Ok, so if I understand it correctly, this is your car that you would import into OZ under your name and then resell. If so, it’s going to be a very hard sale to make especially with those kms, a new LSD required and potentially new rotors because if it has spent all it’s life in Singapore, 80,000kms of driving in constant stop start traffic would be roughly equal to 120,000kms+ of driving in Australia. So I would guess that the car is worth no more that 250K, at best, in the OZ market.

    Oh ok, GLWS- that’s more than local delivery cars have been fetching with less ks. Just to give you some idea of the market.

    Such a tempting car and I'm in love with the 996.1 in black. The mind is toying with the idea to pick it up, use the parts off it to register the fitzy car and then use the heck out of the black car. But suspect the minister of home affairs will veto it.
