  1. There's a 996GT3 and a 991GT3 market watch thread, so I thought I'd start one for the 997GT3s. Part of my motivation was because of some recent price drops, so it will be interesting to see how they sell. There are currently four 7 GT3s for sale on carsales. https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-2007/SSE-AD-5058332/?Cr=0 Club sport, White with orange trim (mirrors, wheels) MY07. Car appears to be on WOVR and has minimal history. 21k km Price $165k (recently dropped from $175k) https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-2007/SSE-AD-5161543/?Cr=3 Club sport, black MY07. Full service history with 38k km. Price $195k https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-2008/SSE-AD-4670370/?Cr=1 Club sport, white MY08. Full Service history with 33k km. Price $198k (recently dropped from $208k) https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-2008/SSE-AD-4047460/?Cr=2 Touring, white MY08. Full service history with 42k km. Price $225k Seems GT3s are now sub $200k cars, with the black GT3 sitting at $195k for a little while, possibly suggesting they may need to move a little lower. The white and orange car might be a good buy for someone wanting to drive and wrench. $165k when other GT3s were selling for $225k would probably make it a good buy. Presuming you could negotiate one of the other cars to $185k, $165k seems a tad high. Maybe $150k would pull a buyer?? Makes the 6/7 GT3 market around the $160k a little crowded.
  2. Well I am not in the market for it, but its an interesting one to watch right now! 991.1 GT3 is now starting to hit the market with price tags that begin with a 2. i.e. http://www.carpoint.com.au/all-cars/dealer/details.aspx?R=OAG-AD-13752859&Cr=6 $299k drive away in NSW http://www.carpoint.com.au/all-cars/private/details.aspx?R=SSE-AD-4705738&Cr=10 $275k in VIC, late build/delivery car with the engine issue fixed from new SO, how far prices will tumble, will no doubt be relative to how well the 991.2 is received, which is going to be good I am guessing. I am sure at some point there may even be pricing overlap between 997 GT3 and 991.1 GT3 So who is tempted???
  3. So i thought i'd start a conversation on the Nations Cup GT3's to see what history we can dig up... I know some members on here are current owners of the MK1 996 GT3's that raced in the day so hopefully they can contribute. Back then i was a mechanic along side some of my mates in Porsche GT3 teams so i know most of the cars but it would be interesting to know where 14 or so GT3 Clubsports are now? Anyone got photos or stories feel free to contribute?
  4. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a36731909/2022-porsche-911-gt3-california-ban-manual-transmission/ Looks like the 992 GT3 manual won’t be allowed in California due to noise regulations, and owners will have to switch to PDK instead. Sounds mad, and I never realised having a manual transmission made your car that much louder I’d certainly be unhappy if my name were down for a 992 GT3/Touring A bit on why below https://www.roadandtrack.com/news/a36741701/porsche-911-gt3-manual-fails-californias-noise-test/
  5. Late last year i was lucky enough to pickup the ex Peter Fitzgerald 2003 996 Cup Car, the plan is to give it a resto & put it back in the ENJO colours of its Carrera Cup days.. What it looked like back in 2003 & today The car was located in Bathurst so i went for a drive to pick it up & just had to do a lap with the car on the back After getting it back home & a quick inspection i was surprised it has remained almost all original after all these years, sure its had a few hits but they all have. Original shell, engine & gearbox all matching numbers Mechanically its all original with a strong sealed engine & a freshly rebuilt zero hour gearbox with $15k in receipts Strip down has started but not much to strip on these things
  6. So, as some of you may know, I have a bit of a dabble in rebuilding aircooled 911 motors.. Had a friend with a 3.0 and quite a few oil leaks.. with a lot of planning and help from friends in the USA, months of parts delays, etc.. we have upgraded this 3.0 SC to a 3.5litre motor. Cannot really give away all the technical bits but most of you will know what's in there from the pics. The brief was that he wanted the car to be a street car so dyno charts are not being posted at request of the owner. All dynos are different, and I have been in cars with "certified 200hp at the wheels with a dyno to prove it" that are no where near 200 hp at the wheels. Let's just say the number is substantially more than stock! I've driven 964s and 993s (stock apart from chip and zorst) and this thing feels way way quicker. The throttle response is instant. The torque comes in early thanks to the longer stroke and custom length rods (oops, might have said too much already ) and it is flat. And boy is this motor smooth... It's a real shame it's gone back to the owner.. I really didn't want to stop driving it! Might just have to build one for myself... Anyway, here are some pics to tell the story.. not enough pics during assembly, sorry. But you can see the sorry state the motor was in. If you have an aircooled 911, and it "only drips a few drops after a drive" it is leaking too much!! Forgot to take a whole bunch of pictures at this point....
  7. Hello all Wondering if anyone has come up with a solution for increased lumbar support for their GT3 lightweight bucket seats? OMP, Sparco etc make some great inserts for their race seats, but I have been reluctant to buy a set in case they don't fit! Anyone got any tips, cheap or otherwise? Be great to hear back if so! Happy driving. Cheers
  8. I know this is a long shot but thought I'd put it out there to see if anyone knows or can source some Porsche CFRP Light Weight Bucket Seats. I was going to get some Recaro SPG seats but I believe there is a legal/compliance issue with not having the side airbag so I am back looking at Porsche seats. Or if anyone wants to swap there's for some very comfortable 18 ways, see my other post:
  9. I know this is a long shot but thought I'd post just in case anyone is wanting to swap there very uncomfortable Porsche Fixed Carbon Bucket Seats for some very nice comfortable 18-way seats plus some cash. There are a number of motor trimmers around who can change stitching colouring and head rest leather/lettering for a small additional cost if required. These seats are also interchangeable/plug and play except for the memory function and suit cars 2016 onwards. I was going to get some Recaro SPG seats but I believe there is the issue with not having the side airbag so I am back looking at Porsche seats.
  10. Hi All, I'm chasing some suspension parts for a 996 GT3. Anyone have any parts or complete suspension assembly kits that are surplus their needs? In particular I'm chasing the top hats (front & rear) and the arms that thread onto the struts (front & rear). It would be great to find these as separate items but understand if only available as part of a full suspension set. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Pic below for reference.
  11. Hi all selling sport seats from my 2010 gt3. Black leather side bolsters and a dark grey alcantara centre. Porsche crest on the headrest. Very comfortable seats with manual vertical and horizontal adjustment and electric recline. They've done 51k kms and in excellent condition. There is some minor wear/creasing on the side bolsters as pictured, otherwise not a stain or mark anywhere. The alcantara in particular is nice and clean and fluffy From my research these should bolt right into all 996 997 987 models. They'll come with the associated rails and hardware. Looking for $3.8k . These are boxed in Adelaide, happy to help sort out transport interstate if needed. Cheers for looking!
  12. Hello. Up for sale is a brand new Schroth Profi Porsche GT3 996/997 3×2 racing harness (SCH-94690). I drive a 991 GT3 so lesson learnt for buying online late at night after a few bevvies! Retails for $830+ in Oz. Happy to let go for $750. Brand new, only removed from box to view. I'm in Melbourne and happy to handover or post (at buyers cost). Can be contacted via forum or by mobile at 0434 Four Zero Six 512. The Schroth Profi Porsche GT3 996/997 3X2 racing belt is a Porsche GT3 Cup competition belt configured as a Profi 3X2 6PT race harness system with Porsche specific bolt-in ends (B43A) which are compatible with all 996 and 997 GT3, RSR, and Cup cars. The Profi GT3 3X2 belt features universal 3" polyester webbing at the shoulders, 2" polyester webbing at the lap belts, lightweight 2" pull-down adjusters, and RFR rotary buckle. The Schroth Profi Porsche GT3 3x2's universal usage 3" shoulder belts are designed to be used with or without FHR/HANS devices. The 3" polyester shoulder straps will allow the user the option to use the belt system sometimes with or sometimes without a FHR/HANS device. The Profi Porsche GT3 996/997 3X2 2"(50mm) lap belt's most notable feature is that it rides within the crest of the human pelvis where a 3" belt would rest on the edges. This allows you to get the belt up to an inch and a half tighter. That means the lap belt will be working earlier in the accident event because it gets loaded faster. It's also more comfortable and easier to adjust because there's less friction through the adjuster. The Porsche specific bolt-in ends of the Profi GT3 3X2 belts will allow a direct bolt-in to the factory GT3 seat set-up in any 911, 996, and 997 chassis. Shoulders come in 70" length and compatible with most harness bars. FIA 8853-2016 Approved. Available in black, blue, red, or yellow colors. • Universal usage 3” shoulder belts, • 2” (50mm) Profi Pull Down lap belts with sewn in Prosche specific bolt-in hardware (B43A), • T-bar adjustable Dual Sub-Strap, • Light-weight RFR Rotary Cam Lock release, • FIA 8853-2016

  15. Missing the actual driving experience a fair bit with this fuggin' pandemic so thought I'd share this little gem on YouTube I just stumbled across.... https://youtu.be/JQAoBBcDnLk Near enough to 10 minutes of Porsche eye and ear porn!
  16. A brief story on my 2004 996 GT3 Cup Car that no one wanted until i found it... Starting out as a brand new 1 of 5 Australian delivered 2004 996 Cup Cars for Jonathon Webb (Tekno Autosports) he successfully raced it in the Australian Carrera Cup placing 6th in 2004 & 3rd in 2005. During its 2 year racing life it was looked after with no expense spared receiving mechanical rebuilds several times over during the years just to get the last 1% out of it the head mechanic tells me, on one occasion after an incident at the Gold Coast Indy $180k was spent rebuilding absolutely everything to brand new spec.. when it finished racing & was sold off at the end of 2005 it was in literally brand new condition with very low hours. Now the interesting part after Carrera Cup. It was sold to a Qld guy that drove it twice on a club track day then as the story goes he either sold it or had it repossessed. The car then went to a guy in WA & was not driven & suffered the same fate, it was handed back to the finance company. The finance company couldn't sell it in WA as no one wanted it, after a few years in storage they sent it to VIC & auctioned it via Manheim Auctions in 2010. The Cup Car was bought by a Victorian car dealer & was used as a display car for several years then went into storage, they attempted to drive it once at Sandown but a fuel line failure didn't even allow them to get a lap in so the car went back to storage. After a few more years in storage the car dealer decided to sell it in 2016 via Manheim Auctions as they do with all the trade ins, it went to auction 3 times with no one wanting it... I was in Europe at the time & was watching the Manheim website with interest, after the 3rd auction & no sale i sent the auctioneer an email with a offer on the cup car subject to an onsite inspection by me & a mate who is an ex Porsche race mechanic, when i arrived back in Melbourne i went down to the auction yard with my mate & had a look, under the dirt & dust from sitting for so long we couldn't believe just how good it was, it looked like a new car. We took a battery & some fuel & attempted to start it.. it fired up for a second then died we did this a few times & knew something was wrong with fuel delivery but the engine sounded very crisp even for a brief second. I did a deal on it & picked it up the next day, all it needed to race it was new fluids, new tyres, a new fuel line & clutch master cylinder thats it! I had taken a huge risk as no one knew any history or anything about it at that stage. A few mates & i were part of several Porsche race teams so we did some digging around & asked a few people, the story just got better & better with the car. The short is, its in new condition with very very low hours & totally original as raced condition, i have driven it about 8 times & its just brilliant (I'm glad i found this car) Porsche have confirmed its the first customer delivered cup car built in 2004 with chassis number 002 Now the somewhat reason for this post apart from me being proud of it.. i was contacted by Porsche Cars Australia as they are looking for an original 996 cup car to put on display as part of Porsches 70 years celebrations at the Melbourne F1GP, they were after a 996 cup that raced in the early days of Carrera cup in Australia (yep I've got one just need to put the original stickers on it) So anyone going to the F1GP feel free to have a look at my car it will be on display in front of the Carrera cup paddock & Carrera cup lounge alongside other historically significant Porsche race cars that raced in Australia 1 from each decade. I even get to do 2 display laps on Sunday morning at about 10am at the F1GP as part of the historic display (100km/h max ) 2005 Carrera Cup as it was raced by Jonathon Webb2005 Melbourne F1GP2005 Bathurst 2016 loaded up for for the drive home 2018 Me driving at Phillip Island My car as it sits today after all the graphics were redone last week

  18. Finally...............after a long wait I have found my MK1 GT3 CS. Better still I'm finally getting around to writing up a post about this illusive car that I've lusted after for so long, and here she is; Not that I've ever really wanted a black car but I did I did want one of these specifically in black just because I think it adds that extra edge to the soft lines of the 996. I've always liked the so-called under-rated models, initially the impact bumper, than the 964 and now I've fallen for the 996 - who knows what will be next? Maybe a Panamera? After a frantic realisation that there was my dream car being listed on carsales I desperately tried to contact the owner who was (typically) being inundated with enquiries. I finally managed to get through and found myself in an offline auction and was holding little hope for being able to make a deal and secure the car. Few more sms's and 12 hours later a deal was done and I couldn't believe it! As it would happen I was taking the family away to Sydney for the weekend and after a quick change to the return fights (destination = Brisbane) myself and Archie headed north for a road trip to get to know the new addition whist bringing it home back to Melbourne. Archie on arrival to the sellers home in Brisbane to pick up the car; We then headed south to Tamworth, my place of birth, Country Music Capital! and where my Dad still resides. It was a short overnight stay but we still managed to do some necessary sight seeing, first stop - the old BMX track (looking very worse for wear ) We then headed towards Dubbo where we encountered our fair share of roadworks and narrow bumpy roads...............taking some route pointers from my Brother (who does the odd road trip in his WRX)..........Little dirt don't slow you down.
  19. Selling a pair of seats from a 996 GT3. Condition is very good. Absolutely no tears in the leather. A few marks on the hardbacks, but you can see that in the photos. Electric recline works perfect, just connect power. Hydraulic lift also works well. Will bolt into any 996 series 911 or will even bolt into an older 911 (I had them in a 1977 model). Located in Greenslopes Brisbane for pickup. Contact me for more info if required. Mike 0418 316 203 $2900 ono Now SOLD
  20. If anyone who does their own Centrelocks needs Optimol, this link will save you a fair bit, I just ordered two 100 gram tins and inc postage from the UK, it was $44.12 compared to $64.00 for one 100 gram tube from Porsche. https://www.motobins.co.uk/
  21. The GT3 in all its forms is an amazing drivers car that needs to be driven and enjoyed; quite often this is not the case for a number of reasons 1) Couldn't be bothered getting it out ( storage, corner of the garage,) 2) Don't want to put k's on it 3) Don't want to get it dirty 4) Saving it for the next owner The list goes on and I'm sure there are owners out there that can relate to this and probably are having a chuckle reading this right now. Thats where social media like this Forum and Facebook groups have changed things they make connections for like minded enthusiasts simple, they unlock the ability to find people with these cars and similar interests, that in-turn can give you the motivation to get your car out meet up and drive. If your're interested in meeting up a couple of times a year; a catch up and drive express your interest on this thread and I'll form a group. Note: this is Victorian based but all owners are welcome. Show us your GT3 - post a pic its much easier now Scott
  22. For sale genuine indoor Porsche car covers some with minimal tyer marks as you would expect but all in excellent or new condition. Boxster 981 $350.00 Boxster 981 $350.00 Boxster 986-987 $350.00 Carrera 996-997 GT3 or Aerokit $375.00 Can send pics via smart phone.
  23. As the EU demands that the CO2 levels be decreased to under 95 grams per kilometre over the fleet of new cars by the end of 2020 (with even much lower targets for 2025 and 2030). This means Porsche not only has to start offering fully electric vehicles (which it will from 2019), but has to hybridize the 911 as well. As can be seen from the table in the attached article, the normally aspirated 992 GT3 may not be built, in fact they suggest that a GT model with a 3 litre turbo producing 600HP will be the replacement well i think i read that hmmmmm........ https://www.stuttcars.com/porsche-models/911/992/
  24. I have a question for all 2014 and 2015 GT3 owners ...Australian delivery C23 CARS As many know the the E and F series GT3 engine has a design issue the can result in premature wear in the camshaft and valve train area ,,,Porsche is aware of this on going issue and as a result of this have given owners of these cars and extended warranty of 10 years or 120 000 miles ... My Question to Australian owners is ..............Do Australian delivery cars also get this warranty extension like the North American owners .........??? Letter to a North American owner ... Dear Mr. XXX We are writing with pleasure to inform you of an enhancement to your New Vehicle Limited Warranty on your 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 model having Vehicle Identification Number (XXX). In addition to the bumper-to-bumper coverage, which you have for four years from your vehicle's original in-service date, or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, we are extending the coverage on your vehicle's engine. Effective at once, the limited warranty on all your vehicle's internal engine components continues for ten years from your vehicle's original in-service date, up to 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first. All other terms and conditions of your New Vehicle Limited Warranty remain unchanged and still apply as they appear in the Porsche Warranty Booklet that came with your GT3 model. You do not need to do anything in order to place this extension into effect; we already have applied it to your vehicle. This extended engine coverage, like all other terms and conditions of the Porsche New Vehicle Limited Warranty, are transferable to subsequent owners. Please keep this letter in your Porsche Warranty Booklet and ensure that it remains with your Porsche GT3 should you sell it. You selected a flagship Porsche model and we are committed to offering you a delightful and worry-free ownership experience. All of us at Porsche appreciate your business and your loyalty.
