2k-Mile 2010 Porsche 997.2 GT3

We are pleased to offer this 2010 Porsche 997.2 GT3 finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black interior.  In 2009, Porsche introduced the second generation of the 997 GT3 with revised styling, aerodynamics, and a larger 3.8L flat-six engine.  One of only 654 examples reported to have been delivered for the U.S. market, this 2010 GT3 came optioned with heated black leather seats, the Sport Chrono Package Plus, Sound Package Plus, a three-spoke Sports steering wheel in leather, PCM 3.0 with extended navigation, and Exclusive Porsche crested headrests.  Having been carefully preserved while maintained by its original owner from new, this GT3 currently shows just under 2,500 miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Pennsylvania.

This 997.2 GT3 was ordered in Arctic Silver Metallic and can be distinguished from the first-generation 997 GT3 by its revised front and rear fascias, updated LED lighting, and modified rear spoiler. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean one-owner CARFAX report.  This 997.2 rides on factory 19” GT3 aluminum wheels dressed in their original Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.

Inside, this GT3 features heated black leather seats with Exclusive Porsche crested headrests as well as a three-spoke Sports steering wheel in leather.  The driver is also supplied with the optional Sound Package Plus, Sport Chrono Package Plus, a Bluetooth phone interface, universal audio interface, XM radio receiver, self-dimming mirrors with an integrated rain sensor, and PCM 3.0 with extended navigation.  The condition of the interior is said to reflect the car’s low mileage.

This second-generation 997 GT3 carries a naturally aspirated 3.8L flat-six engine with an output of up to 435 HP and 317 lb.-ft of torque.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission, which allows this GT3 to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in approximately 4 seconds with a top speed of over 190 MPH.  The GT3 makes use of a specially tuned version of Porsche’s active PASM suspension and this example features the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus which adds a lap timer to the center dashboard and allows the driver to access additional settings and information through the PCM system.  The seller states that proper routine maintenance has been observed throughout the lifetime of the vehicle and a recent pre-purchase inspection from Dougherty Automotive Services is provided for reference in the photo gallery along with a DME report.

This sale will include a set of two keys, the original owner's manuals, a copy of the window sticker, and a clean title. A fine example of one of the most collectible and increasingly sought-after GT3’s of all time, this low-mileage 2010 997.2 would make a perfect addition to any enthusiast's collection.

    @Dr.JDK Don't pay attention. Dumb comment. I've seen auctions that were "dubious" before but when you have a Guards Red .2 GT3 w/ 4100 miles on it with an ask of $205k, this isn't "dubious" If I didn't already have a couple GT3's I would have been interested at that price. And would prefer Arctic Silver over Guards Red (personal taste). It's a 2400 mile car. Go to the PCA youtube channel and watch the 904 Mona Lisa video. This car is epic and hopefully it went to an end user not a douchebag dealer

    @Dsgray16 It did sell. PCAR market is not like BaT where it automatically says "sold" if reserve is met. They manually mark it as sold, presumably after speaking with buyer and seller.

    The underside pics that we just added is exactly how we acquired the car. As expected, cleaner than most kitchen tables…

    In picture 8, there are black scuffs on the rock guard and rear wheel opening behind the tire. Are those just on the surface or is there any paint damage there?

    @SkyMotorCars Can you post a few pics of the undercarriage, specifically in the rear where the engine and suspension is exposed? If you don't have access to a lift, some iPhone pics with flash or good lighting will suffice. Thanks.

  • SkyMotorCars (seller) 4 days, 3 hoursago

    As we approach the home stretch here, please let us know of any last minute questions you may have. The car is available to be viewed by appointment at our location in West Chester PA. Happy bidding!

    @Dr.JDK All good. Just want to be respectful to the seller and not shift focus too far away from his lot. Carry on...

  • Dr.JDK (registered bidder) 4 days, 4 hoursago

    @GlennG I am planning on bidding on this car as well. Read carefully on my comment and you will find what I stated is not a personal preference but my opinion on the current collectible car market. All I am saying is that 997.2 GT3/RS are great cars and will appreciate, just won't reach limited edition Ferraris level. I posted the link only as a reference to back up my statement of the price as did by HarryBoy initially.
    Let's just relax.

  • GlennG 4 days, 5 hoursago

    @HarrysBoy I wasn't talking to you and no, it's not all relevant. Someone's personal preference of a Ferrari to a 997.2 RS is completely irrelevant to this auction. PCARMarket must agree since I see the comments were now edited and the links deleted.

    How about we keep the comments somewhat related to the car being auctioned here. No need to post links to other cars and makes. This isn’t a message board.

  • Dr.JDK (registered bidder) 4 days, 23 hoursago

    @HarrysBoy There was a 3k mile 997.2 RS sold in Feb 2021 for 181k, however, it was located in Canada. Nonetheless, it seems like a stretch to 275k ~ 300k+. At 275k there are so many options like low mileage 430 Scuderia or the 991.2 GT3 RS in delivery miles which are far more appealing than 997.2 RS.

  • HarrysBoy (registered bidder) 5 daysago

    997.2 RS with 2k miles was 165k in 2020 and is now $275k to $350k in 2021. The appreciation on collector grade RS' is more than that of of collector grade non-RS cars. I know because i bought my 2k mile .2RS last yr and have offers over $275k from the dealer that sold it to me.... The appreciation doesnt matter. Just drive em!

  • TubeGuy (registered bidder) 5 days, 8 hoursago

    @HarrysBoy Not sure about the RS appreciating more than a non-RS at THIS point. Maybe true two years ago before a mint no stories .2 RS would fetch $280k.

  • HarrysBoy (registered bidder) 5 days, 9 hoursago

    997.2 RS will appreciate more than a non-RS (i have both a 997.2 RS and non-RS). This would be a great car to drive!

  • samwise (registered bidder) 5 days, 16 hoursago

    @Bruno911 oh and that wide body too

  • samwise (registered bidder) 5 days, 16 hoursago

    @Bruno911 more the “feel” the RS has just they bit less sound insulation. But the biggest different in terms of feel is the single mass flywheel and the shorter gearing. I know the performance really isn’t all that much and I challenge anyone who said they can “feel” that extra 15hp. I reckon the extra shove people feel in the RS is entirely due to gearing. There are some extra aero / underbody bits as well with the RS but the don’t add to the experience.

    To be honest the dual mass flywheel on the standard GT3 is way more livable on the street.

  • Beandip83 5 days, 23 hoursago

    @SkyMotorCars I’m not sure what the sale price was. It was sold by nweuro (Jason Harris) and I think it was in the mid twos…sale happened just before that .1 white decal delete was sold on on BaT for 230

  • GlennG 6 daysago

    People paying up for the 997.2 RS are doing so because it's the "halo" GT3 (not counting the uber rare 4.0 RS) of the 997 generation. It's not due to any substantive superiority over the regular GT3.
    If you're making a living setting lap times, you can convince me that the RS is truly better. Otherwise, you're just after bragging rights.

  • Bruno911 6 daysago

    @Beandip83 my point exactly. There’s really no difference performance wise. And as far as production numbers, there were only 103 fewer RS units produced for North America so not much difference as far as rarity. Both were very limited production runs, unlike the current generation GT3s which are becoming production cars.
    Bottom line, another clean 997.2 GT3 with this low mileage probably does not exist. This is definitely a unicorn.

  • SkyMotorCars (seller) 6 days, 1 hourago

    @Beandip83 Different in a different market, but curious what the sale price of the car was.

  • Beandip83 6 days, 1 hourago

    @Bruno911 if you look at Nurburgring lap times (take them for what they are) the lap times are almost identical (same times for .1s). I think for price differential it’s all about production numbers. They made like 400 .1 rs for USA or something like that and a bit more .2s. The rarity of it and the RS, not necessarily the performance bump drive the price.

  • Beandip83 6 days, 1 hourago

    @TubeGuy I know of a .2 rs sold 7 mo ago, decal delete, white, pccb etc with just over 2k on the odo.

  • Bruno911 6 days, 9 hoursago

    @samwise Curious as to what you mean by base GT3 is 80% -85% of RS?
    Performance wise it’s probably 95-99%.

  • SkyMotorCars (seller) 6 days, 9 hoursago

    @samwise My point here is that you can add PCCB and other options to the car if you really wanted to. Finding a 2k mile, unmolested GT3 is next to impossible!

  • samwise (registered bidder) 6 days, 10 hoursago

    @SkyMotorCars I am thinking similar to Bruno’s comment. Full Leather, FAL, PCCB, and DEM. I agree with his comment tho. I think this will do well regardless, how well is the question. These base GT3 are about 80-85% of a .2 RS so no reason why these should be 100k less than a similar spec’ed RS

  • Bruno911 6 days, 10 hoursago

    @samwise I understand your point but two things to consider: a) plenty of people driving around in $200k cars not worried about depreciation from mileage, b) I think a collector looking for a GT3 may be willing to overlook options like PCCB, full leather, and FAL in order to get something with this mileage, condition, and color. While those options are icing on the cake, the base GT3 still offers the motor and driving dynamics which these cars are mostly valued for.

  • SkyMotorCars (seller) 6 days, 10 hoursago

    @samwise Thank you for the kind words. What options do you think would make this GT3 more collectible?

  • samwise (registered bidder) 6 days, 16 hoursago

    This will be really interesting to watch. This car is about as close to based spec as you can get with a 997.2 GT3, but the ultra low miles may attract collectors. A bit of a tough call really, too valuable to drive it but not spec high enough to really be a real “collector” example?

  • Bruno911 6 days, 22 hoursago

    @SkyMotorCars Thank you for the response. Beautiful car.

  • SkyMotorCars (seller) 6 days, 23 hoursago

    @Bruno911 @mbj2020

    My apologies, must some technical issues as I have tried to reply to both questions.

    The service records we have are limited to the carfax and the results of the inspection performed by Dougherty’s. They also performed an oil service while they had the car. This car came out of a private collection prior to it being marketed here.

  • Bruno911 6 days, 23 hoursago

    3 days and no response from the seller about maintenance history. It’s been asked twice now. Not a good way to inspire confidence and get top dollar.

  • mjb2020 (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    This is a beautiful specimen. Are there any other services, specifically oil changes done, on this 11 year old car, beyond those few listed on the carfax?

  • TubeGuy (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    @SpeedJunky Well Pcarautogallery has one with 4100 miles and they claim it's the lowest mileage car in the country. I guess that is not true now.

    I didn't think silver was a great color for a GT3 until I saw one in person. Pictures don't do it justice. It makes the wing and rear end look like molten metal and adds a real sense of grace while still showing it for what it is. A bad-ass performance car.

  • GlennG 1 week, 1 dayago

    @CBRacerX Good catch. I think PCARMarket had this same error in the description of their las 997.2 GT3 as well.

  • CBRacerX (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    The engine in this GT3 is not Direct Injection. It is sequential fuel injection with a manifold based injector. The non-GT3 911’s in 2010 featured direct injection but used an entirely different engine architecture. The GT3 in this generation uses the tried and true Mezger engine.

  • GlennG 1 week, 2 daysago

    @TubeGuy I agree. Delta when new was only about $20k between a GT3 and GT3RS. Now that these cars are selling above MSRP and many are being purchased by collectors, that delta has naturally increased. However, I can see no justification for the price differences seen in the current market. Ironically, I think most people would actually enjoy the base GT3 more than the RS. It's a but more civilized on the street and let's face it, no one is buying these cars to track them like they were 10 years ago when they were new. There are much better track cars available for half the price nowadays. These cars are all about driver engagement and visceral feel, best enjoyed on back country and canyon roads. They are peak 911. Truly the last of a kind. Someone here has an opportunity to buy a brand new example of a car that's been out of production for 10 years; a car of the type that will never be made again.

  • TubeGuy (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @Glenng a 2k miles 997.2 RS would be in excess of $300k easy. The delta between GT3 and GT3RS has historically been much closer than it is right now, which leads me to notice there is a GT3 run-up happening as we speak. We haven't seen a lot of super-prime condition and build .2 GT3s on the market for a while. This car is faster than a .1 RS and has so many terrific improvements enjoyed by .2s.

    No PCCB and full leather, but big deal. I own two .2 GT3s and they truly are a keeper. The 997 form is the one in my book. Period, end of story. All the best improvements in performance and modernity before the 911 was Supersized.

    I made a comparison video between my outgoing 2012 GTS and my 2010 GT3 and here's a teaser https://youtu.be/eDSUEmIn4ak The final one will be done soon. My love for this car is almost difficult to describe. The winner of this auction will be soooooo fortunate.

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Mmm. Very Peachy

  • GlennG 1 week, 2 daysago

    Hard to believe a GT3 with this low mileage even exists. Spectacular. @SkyMotorCars can you share any of the back story on this car? Was it in a collection, was it just not driven, was any of the time-based required maintenance performed? I only see the one oil change which is fine based on mileage but not on time.
    I think the 997.2 GT3 is currently one of the most under-appreciated cars, despite a recent run up in values. Historically, this will be a significant car. Last generation of the naturally aspirated Mezger, hydraulic steering, Getreg gearbox, 3000lb curb weight, no sunroof, better form factor than the bloated newer generation 911s, and limited production with only about 650 of these cars making it to the US.
    If you consider that the RS versions of this car, in this condition and mileage, are now approaching $300k, these base GT3 cars still represent the absolute best value in the Porsche GT market. I can't see prices going anywhere other than up.
