Named after the FIA racing series for which it was developed as a homologation car, the Porsche 996 GT3 remains one of the most sought-after 911s ever produced with its lightweight design, visceral driving characteristics, and naturally aspirated Mezger flat-six engine. This 2004 Canadian-market example comes finished in Carrara White over Black full leather and features the Xenon Headlamp Package, the Carbon Package, air conditioning, and Custom Tailoring (special wishes that require further communication). Showing less than 43k kilometers (just under 27k miles) on the odometer, this GT3 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Quebec.

Known as the 996.2 generation, the updated 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 uses a wider bodyshell shared with the Carrera 4 along with revised headlights, a redesigned front fascia, and a new rear wing. Finished in Carrara White, this GT3 features the optional Xenon Headlamp Package and rides on 18” 911 GT3 wheels with optional color-crested center caps wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The CARFAX report lists moderate damage as having occurred to the driver’s rear side of the car in October of 2006, and the seller reports that the front of the vehicle is covered in paint protection film. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.

Inside, this GT3 is upholstered in Black full leather with optional Sport Seat backrests painted to match the exterior. Additional options include Porsche-lettered floor mats, a thicker leather-wrapped steering wheel, Guards Red seatbelts, the Carbon Package (small), air conditioning with automatic climate control, and Porsche-crested headrests. Equipment includes a Porsche stereo with a CD changer. The seller reports all gauges and electronics to be working as intended and states no warning lights are present.

Powered by a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine, the GT3’s engine was updated with lighter pistons, longer titanium connecting rods, and an upgraded VarioCam system starting in the 2004 model year. Up to 380 HP and 284 lb.-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. 0-60 MPH is achievable in just over 4 seconds and equipment includes fixed 6-piston calipers in front and 4-pistons in the rear, which are paired with ventilated and cross-drilled discs at each corner. The seller notes that this 911 was maintained regularly by a Porsche specialist.

This sale will include a new front lip, a spare set of front disc brakes, and a clean title.

The seller would like you to know: “Splendid Porsche GT3 2004 with only 25k miles (40k kilometers). Authentic and classic, it’s the last year of making the GT3 without electronic assistance. Pristine condition inside and out. BodyA1, mechanics A1. The front of the car is entirely clear wrapped and there are absolutely no dents. Both brakes and tires are in excellent condition. The car has always been well maintained by the best Porsche mechanic in Quebec. Nothing to do on the car, it’s ready for you. Must see!!”

    Were the seat belts replaced during your ownership or before? Maybe as a result of the accident?

    Wish it was easier to get this into the US

    @Nashvegas please stop spreading misinformation. While it’s possible that very old and sun baked clear coat can be difficult to remove, most times it comes off relatively easily and can certainly be done by a non-professional. PPF that’s difficult to remove is typically baked to the point it’s no longer clear, it looks matte, and may start showing cracks in the surface since it’s completely dried out and lost all elasticity. This is clearly not the case on this car. A little yellowing is normal with age and not indicative of excessive sun exposure. The old glues yellows with age.

    996 GT3 is where it's at !

    PS - New owner needs to get the old yellowing PPF off front of car before it becomes impossible to remove...and by a very skilled professional (you will ruin clear coat and cause paint damage if you try it yourself).

  • Roundel1000 (registered bidder) 4 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Bigbar365 I suspect Canapa in Scott’s Valley can handle importing. They brought in 959s for well heeled buyers back in the day.

    @NYSport If needed, i’ll get it removed by pros here before delevery

  • NYSport (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    I'm not trying to bash this GT3, it's a very nice looking example. Depending on where the bidding goes I'm interested. But because auction sites usually don't account for conditional purchases you need to understand ALL the potential issues before you bid. PPF happens to be an issue that can't really be addressed until you remove it, so a PPI will not be very useful. GLWA

  • NYSport (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @oldsouth, exactly.

    The Diablo I purchased had 3M PPF on half the hood, front bumper, mirrors, and leading edge of the wing. Put on in the 90's. I purchased a steamer and it was inches at a time with a plastic scraper. Ended up pulling some clearcoat on the hood. That's why I always ask about PPF. I hate the stuff. If it can be removed without pulling some clear, the paint underneath should look great.

    Paint protection film can turn yellow when exposed to elements like sunlight, UV light, heat, oxygen, chemicals, and moisture. Additionally, improper manufacturing can also cause the film to yellow.

    @Bruno911 mine was always Parker in the garage

  • Bruno911 1 monthago

    @NYSport depends how much sun exposure it had. If car was mostly stored indoors, it should be no problem. I pulled off 14 year old PPF a few months ago with no issue. Came off very easily.

  • Hotplace (seller) 1 monthago

    @Hotplace take care

  • Hotplace (seller) 1 monthago

    @NYSport so, that’s the reason it’s not good??
    I can fake carence of it if u r interested.
    I’ll get that fine by pro here in town

  • NYSport (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Hotplace, 12 yo PPF can be very labor intensive to remove.

  • Hotplace (seller) 1 monthago

    @NYSport why, the paint is just perfect under.
    Can be remove anytime

  • NYSport (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    12 yo PPF, that's not good.

    @WeekendToy I just brought in a 997.2 to the US but it was originally a US car.

    You’d need a letter from Porsche NA to say the car complies with US DOT and EPA regulations- they don’t like writing these letters anymore so it can be difficult to get

    You would need to use a registered importer who would change the clocks to MPH from KPH

    It’s not that difficult to do but there is a bit of hassle, paperwork etc involved

    You’d pay about 2.75% import duty. No sales tax in Canada but you’d pay sales tax in California when you register it there

  • SafeWill (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Didn’t know we have that beautiful 996 GT3 here in Quebec. Too bad it will probably leave the province. I also have 996.1 GT3 in carrera white, it would have been a great picture together!
    For the bidders, I do not have the stats but carrera white was not a common color for the 996.
    GLWTA to the seller :)

  • WeekendToy (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Anyone know what the import to the US process might look like since it is Canadian-market car? In particular for registering it in CA?

  • Hotplace (seller) 1 monthago

    @oldsouth yes, I Have it all since 2014.
    I did not modifie the car. I keep it original.
    I could be able to show you a the bills eventually

  • oldsouth (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Do you have any maintenance records? What have you done to the car maintenance wise in your ownership?

  • Hotplace (seller) 1 monthago

    @oldsouth The PPF is on since 2012. Yes it’s a bit Yellow.
    The wreck was before I owned the car. I have it since 2010

  • Hotplace (seller) 1 monthago

    The PPF on since 2012. Yes it’s a bit Yellow.
    The wreck eas before I owned the car. I have it since 2010

  • oldsouth (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Looks like the PPF has yellowed. How long has it been on the car?
    Can you elaborate on the wreck and the mileage inconsistency on the Carfax?
