With the facelift of the 991 GT3 in 2017, Porsche did offer a manual gearbox. Together with the naturally aspired 4.0 liter boxer engine, this makes the GT3 a true purist car. And there are very few of those left.
Whereas the 991 GT3 Mk1 had a 3.8 engine, the Mk2 got a 4.0 liter engine. Just like the GT3 RS and the 911 R. This engine produces 500 hp and the rev limiter only intervenes at 9.000 rpm. Pure sensation.
With the facelift, the GT3 has received many other upgrades. For example, to increase maneuverability, Porsche has installed speed-sensitive rear-axle steering. In terms of appearance, the GT3 Mk2 can be recognized by the new headlights, taillights, front bumper, air intakes and diffuser. This makes the GT3 look even more aggressive.
This GT3 was delivered new in 2018 by Porsche Zentrum Niederrhein and is finished in a fitting colour: Racing Yellow. This example is not only fitted with a manual gearbox, but also with the Clubsport package. That means a roll cage, six-point seat belts and a fire extinguisher are present. This GT3 is completely ready to finally participate in a trackday.
A Racing Yellow GT3 with a manual gearbox and the Clubsport package is already a very desirable car. However, what makes this particular GT3 truly special is the fact that this car is brand new. This GT3 from 2018 has covered only 49 kilometers. If this isn’t a Collectable, we don’t know what is.
Where do we start? We can be brief about the 991 GT3 Mk2, it is fantastic. This is the last real GT3 according to Porsche enthusiasts. Atmospheric howling up to 9,000 rpm. And then also in Clubsport version. The internet is full of raving videos and articles, enough for an evening of Porsche pleasure.
But what makes this Racing Yellow GT3 Mk2 unique is the mileage, combined with the fact that the Porsche is registered on Dutch licence plates. After all, the owner intended to enjoy it. Unfortunately, we see too often that exclusive cars without registration immediately disappear into a collection. This of course saves VAT and/or BPM (Dutch luxury tax), but risks not being able to register the car even again due to changing emmission regulations.
If the GT3 does not disappear in a collection, or if the new owner decides to take a few mountain passes after a few years, then that is possible. To get an idea, take a look at the ‚tribute to the GT3 manual‘ by Henry Catchpole (video at the bottom of the lot description).
