chassis number: WP0ZZZ99ZBS785163
original colour: Carrara White / Black leather and alcantara

  • RHD New Zealand (C23) model
  • imported to the UK in 2014
  • 2,193 miles from new

This car was originally delivered in New Zealand by Giltrap Porsche in Auckland in September 2011. The differences between a C23 New Zealand market car and a C16 UK market equivalent are minor amounting to the little more than speedometer markings and the inclusion of windscreen top tint and cruise control as standard.  

The car has a fully stamped service history file and was last serviced by Porsche specialist, Heritage Autowerks, in October 2018, showing a mileage of 2,193.

The car presents in immaculate condition and wants for nothing.  An engine over-rev test was recently carried out and shows no over-revs in any of the ranges.

The ultimate development of the successful 997 GT3 line, only 600 were made and it was described by respected journalists at the time as ‘the ultimate driver’s 911’.

Our thoughts

More than any other manufacturer, Porsche has a history from the start of providing the most rigorously developed, high performance, motorsport-derived solutions to its clients through limited edition road car projects.

The 997 GT3 RS 4.0 is surely one of the ultimate examples of this approach. No expense or resource was spared to produce a car that is still regularly listed as one of the best 911s of all time.

With the benefit of hindsight, the 997 series is seen by an increasing number of enthusiasts as a model that mixed the greatest performance with usable size – something that the larger, heavier, more modern cars have lost.

In desirable right-hand drive format, with low miles and a totally clear history, this 4-litre is ready to be used as intended. What a great car from the greatest sports car manufacturer.
