We are pleased to present this 2004 Porsche 996 GT3 finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black leather interior. Regarded among the greatest driving Porsche’s of all time, the 996 GT3 was designed as a homologation vehicle for FIA racing and features the coveted 3.6L flat-six Mezger engine. This 2004 example was purchased new by the current owner from Hoehn Porsche of San Diego in July 2004 and came factory optioned with Exclusive aluminum instrument dials, the Xenon Headlamp Package, and a brake handle and shifter in carbon/aluminum. It also features upgraded Girodisc brake rotors as well a 964 RS/Cup clutch and flywheel. Having been kept up to date on service primarily through an authorized Porsche dealer, this 996 GT3 shows just over 68k miles and is now being offered for auction by its original owner out of Nevada.
This GT3 is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and sports model-specific flared rocker panels, front fascia, and fixed rear wing. The seller notes a few small road-going chips on the front hood and bumper as well as a minor gouge on one of the wheels which occurred during tire mounting. The front bumper cover is also said to have been previously cracked, replaced with a new OEM piece, and painted to match. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This 996 rides on factory 18” GT3 alloy wheels dressed in Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires showing date codes from 2015 in the front and 2018 in the rear.
Inside, you will find a black leather interior with optional amenities including A/C with full climate control, cruise control, aluminum instrument dials, and carbon/aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle. Standard comfort and convenience features include power windows, Sport Seats with power backrests, a central locking system with remote control, an onboard computer, and power/heated side mirrors. The original Porsche radio remains in place and the seller has confirmed all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
This 996 GT3 is equipped with a race-derived 3.6L flat-six Mezger engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. This naturally aspirated power plant sends as much as 380 HP and 284 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels, allowing acceleration from 0-60 MPH in approximately 4 seconds. The drivetrain has been upgraded with a 964 RS/Cup clutch and flywheel and the stopping power has been improved with upgraded 350mm Girodisc two-piece brake rotors. During the car’s warranty period, all scheduled service was addressed through an authorized Porsche dealership. Since the end of the warranty, some additional work was performed by the Porsche dealer with other routine maintenance items addressed by the seller.
This sale will include the original tools, tire inflator, and a clean title. Highlighting a clean one-owner history and tasteful factory specifications, this 2004 example may very well be the 996 GT3 you have been searching for.
