  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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???
  4. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2007-Porsche-911-GT3-997-Manual-MY07/SSE-AD-5963371 Feel free to call or text with any questions. Cheers Richard 0403799018
  5. 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/
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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/
  9. 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 mates of mine 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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. Sincerely yours, Glenn Garde Vice President, Customer Relations _____________
  12. Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I'm looking for 996 Mk1 GT3, preferably clubsport but that's not essential. Obviously Km's as low as I can get. I'm looking for something that I can enjoy occasionally on weekends - I don't want to put too many km's on it as I'd like it to hold it's value or hopefully appreciate i.e. it's an investment car as much (or more) as it is something to have fun in. Have had a bit of a look on Carsales but there doesn't seem to be anything outstanding on there at the moment. It was suggested to me that anything decent is likely to either never get there, or go very quickly so I thought I'd throw a message out here on the off chance that someone is aware of one out in the market. I'd also consider a 997 Mk1 turbo - but would prefer the GT3. Look forward to hearing any bright ideas or interesting leads. Cheers
  13. I've come to the realisation that there will be no GT 3 parked in garage any time soon, so I've decided to part with my set of GT3 wheels from a 996.1 GT3 They were purchased a while go in the hope that I would use these as a spare set but that dream has faded for now - damn mortgage and over inflated porsches. Genuine BBS wheels as shown in pics. Not Perfect, but great as a spare set for track use. Comes with RW tyres, though they have been sitting for a couple of years. Falken 285/30 ZR 18 & 225/40 ZR 18 Selling complete set (4) with no caps $2000 - happy to discuss further if there is genuine interest or if price seems unrealistic. Evan Zero 412 877 40five
  14. I've got some items that I no longer need and want to clear room for... 1. 997 GT3 Cup muffler & Side muffler delete pipes. I bought this setup for my car for just over $4000 from PCM (Have receipts). This setup bolts directly on to the headers and removes the two side mufflers behind the rear wheels, before joining a centre muffler. The centre muffler looks much like the OEM one but is basically a straight pipe. This sheds a lot of weight and is said to be good for around 10whp up top. I had this on the car for one weekend, at Phillip Island the extra power was noticeable in the higher RPMs, but please note that this is bloody loud, as there's no more valve control. If you use your car a lot on the track then this will be good for you, if it's on the road then it might not be a good solution as there is quite a lot of drone between 2.5-3k RPM. Asking price is $3000 or best offer. 2. I have a set of Pirelli Pzero Corsa (N-spec) tyres in 235/35/19 & 305/30/19. These were fitted brand new on my car when I bought it from PCB in March last year. I did one track day on them and about 1000 road kms. They have about 85-90% tread remaining and no unusual wear. The sidewalls and shoulders are in great condition, the only reason I took these off was to try out the Pzero Trofeo R. Looking to get $1000 or best offer Please call/sms 0428 891 986 - Jonathan
  15. Looking to choose R-SPEC tyres for my 996 GT3. 235/40 -18 & 295/30 - 18 Only doing club level track days, not full circuit racing or Targa rallies. Will use my R-specs on a dedicated set of BBS rims, leaving road tires on my standard rims. Some say the Yokohama A050 is the ultimate and obviously its top dollar. What do people think is the best “bang for your bucks” value option? including from the following: -Yokohama A050 vs AD08 vs V105 -Dunlop DZ03G -Hankook z221 -Kumho V70a -Toyo R888 -Others? Appreciated and regards to all
  16. Hi PFA’ers, I’ve been a member for a while, but only recently started following the forum more closely. As informative as it is entertaining – great stuff all. I also feel like I’ve found ‘my people’! Back to the real point here - I’ve made the call to sell my 996 and search for another AC car. As much as I would love to, I cannot keep both so the 996 has to go. I have forever regretted the sale of my 993 and suspect I may do so with this one. Deep breath – no turning back now! 2004 996.2 GT3, Midnight Blue touring spec with 50,500 km. Aus car, three owner. Absolutely factory stock. No issues, and any inspection welcome. It’s currently in the shop for scheduled (major) service and will post some photos when I get it back this weekend. Eagle-eyed market watchers will recognize this as the car listed by a dealer in Melbourne earlier this year. This is not a ‘flip’. It was my car then, but unfortunately some “compliance issues” forced that arrangement to end – nothing at all to do with the car. A bit annoying for me, but good for you as I can now cut the dealer margin out the price. For sale at $147,000.
  17. Just bought a 996 Carrera 4. Fully optioned with GT3 look, except GT3 engine. Have sourced a GT3 engine and doing transplant soon. Will be a GT3 AWD, which will be interesting. So now looking for GT3 Seats. Anyone with some for sale.
  18. Greetings fellow PFA'ers, I've recently been madly hunting for a 996 GT3 Cup Car rear bumper (centre mount exhaust outlet) and have found them to be in short supply, especially locally. As it happens, when it rains it pours and I now have 2, 1 being surplus to my needs so I'm offering it here first. It is a genuine carbon composite Cup Car bar however it has been repaired in the past. Since I purchased it I have had the bar further repaired (cracking around edges & fixing holes neatened up) and also professionally painted in factory black to match my GT3. The bar is currently installed on my GT3 and presents fine and the fit is acceptable to me. The only flaw is that on close inspection you can see a slight difference in the shape of the where the sides of the bumper meets the rear wheel arch - 996 bar sort of tapers in but on the passenger side (where it has previously been repaired) its slightly convex as opposed to concave. My GT3 is a road car and I'm pretty fussy, if your looking at if for a track car (dedicated Cup Car) you may not be so fussy. I'm just wanting to provide full disclosure. Priced accordingly @ $1000.00 (don't forget its carbon!) and happy to freight (at buyers expense). I'll get some pics up shortly, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions in the meantime. Cheers, Hugh.
  19. I found this impressive in so many ways: Action starts about 50 seconds in.
  20. Greetings! As the title suggests, I'm after a 996 GT3 cup rear bar to suit a centre mounted exhaust. Any leads would be greatly appreciated! @Skidmarks @James P I'm looking in your direction? Cheers, Hugh.
  21. Hi PFA, great forum, very positive and helpful! I am looking for an early GT3, happy to look at tidy examples or cars in need of various levels of restoration. Thanks and Regards Sean 0427 005 840.
  22. Hi. New to the forum and looking at replacing the race harnesses on my 04 996 GT3 Mk2 CS. I have sourced OEM Schroth red harnesses from Gert at Carnewal.com and they will be arriving soon. My car currently has harnesses but the PO replaced with aftermarket and I want to return to factory. Any tips on best way to remove existing and replace, do the seats need to come out? Cheers Tim.
