Up for auction is this 2018 Porsche 991.2 GT3 Touring finished in the coveted Paint to Sample color of Slate Grey over a Custom Tailored black leather interior with special Houndstooth cloth seat inserts. Perhaps the most desirable 991 of all, the GT3 Touring is sought after for its understated styling and standard 6-speed GT Sport manual transmission. In addition to its $12,830 Paint to Sample Color and $11,360 worth of Custom Tailoring options, this particular example was generously optioned from the factory with the Front Axle Lift System, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), extended leather upholstery, and carbon-fiber trim. Purchased by the current owner from a Porsche dealership in 2019 at just over 300 miles, this GT3 Touring commanded an original sticker price of over $204k and is now being offered for auction out of Kansas while showing approximately 3,800 miles on the odometer.
This example was custom ordered in the nonmetallic Paint to Sample color of Slate Grey, a beloved and highly sought-after classic Porsche shade that gained fame after an appearance on the 911S in the opening scene of Steve McQueen's 1971 film, "Le Mans". Xpel clear paint protection film has also been professionally applied over the full exterior along with ceramic coating at a cost of over $8,500, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery. In comparison with the standard GT3, the Touring model features a rear wing delete which provides a more understated look. Unique details on this example include Custom Tailoring Porsche logo side graphics, factory LED headlights in black, and center-lock 20" GT3 wheels in a Platinum Satin finish. The optional Front Axle Lift System also enables the nose of the car to be raised and lowered for extra clearance. A supplemental 5-year wheel and tire protection plan was purchased on 6/5/2019 and is transferable to the next owner.
Inside, you will find a beautifully appointed black leather interior with specially ordered black and silver Houndstooth cloth seat inserts. Other Custom Tailoring options include black leather seat bolsters and piping, a 911R carbon fiber shifter, seatbelt outlet trims in Alcantara, the Door Panel Trim Package in Leather, and illuminated/personalized door sill guards in carbon fiber.
