Now up for auction is this 2007 Porsche 997 GT3 finished in Carrara White. Among the last of the GT3s to have been equipped with the coveted Mezger flat-six engine, this 2007 example was configured at an original sticker price of over $138k with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), Sound Package Plus, Chrono Package Plus, and a Black Special Leather interior featuring Exclusive painted trim, instrument dials in Guards Red, and seatbelts in Speed Yellow. It was purchased by the second and current owner from a dealer in 2011 at just over 1k miles and came upgraded with Techart headlight covers, a custom performance tune, a sequential manual shifter, carbon bucket seats, a roll bar, a full Cargraphic exhaust system, and much more. Now with approximately 22k miles showing on the odometer, this GT3 is being offered for auction by its owner out of Colorado.
This GT3 came finished in Carrara White and has been customized with a gloss-black painted rear wing, carbon fiber mirror housings, a white-painted rear model logo, silver front emblem, Techart headlight covers, and a GT3 Cup front spoiler lip. Cargraphic front bumper screens have also been installed along with a carbon fiber front air vent. Paint protection film covers the front hood, front fenders, and rear quarter panels. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The original 19” GT3 wheels have all been custom powder coated in gloss black and dressed in new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires in 2018 at 21,500 miles.
Inside, you will find a Black Special Leather interior with a host of Exclusive options including instrument dials in Guards Red, seatbelts in Racing Yellow, and a rear center console painted in the exterior color. The switch panel also came finished in the exterior color along with the instrument panel, belt outlets, PCM surround, and dashboard trim strip. Other notable factory features include Chrono Package Plus, Sound Package Plus, PCM 2.1 with telephone module, a storage compartment lid with embossed model logo, floor mats with colored trim, and self-dimming mirrors with an integrated rain sensor. The cabin has also been outfitted with a white-painted roll bar, painted shifter surround, upgraded aluminum pedal covers, custom laser-engraved five-point harnesses, GT2 folding back carbon-fiber bucket seats with Alcantara inserts, a fire extinguisher with chrome mounting bracket, and a digital gear display mounted in the instrument cluster. All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly, although an error light is present due to the aftermarket exhaust system.
This first-generation 997 GT3 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.6L flat-six Mezger engine that sends up to 415 HP and 300 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) were optioned from the factory and this GT3 has also been upgraded with a full Cargraphic GT3 Kit 6 exhaust system and Cartronic sequential shifter as well as an adjustable toe steer kit, adjustable rear link kit, and a custom flashed performance ECU. These upgrades were installed along with the cosmetic modifications by Stuttgart Performance of California at a cost of nearly $40k, and corresponding invoices are provided in the photo gallery. Service records are also provided from Autometrics Inc. showing a major engine-out service to have been performed in 2017 at just over 20k miles including replacement of the engine crankcase, pinned coolant pipes, new bearings, gaskets, rod bolts, and ignition components.
This sale will include a set of two master keys, one spare valet key, service records, and a clean title. With no expense spared on high-end upgrades and proper maintenance, this outstanding GT3 is just waiting to be enjoyed by a new owner.
