This GT3 was first supplied on the 11th June 2010 by the Porsche Centre in Leeds to a local enthusiast based in nearby Harrogate. He returned the car to the supplying dealer for its first service on the 29th May 2012 as per schedule and as stamped in the original service book. At this point it had covered 11,807 miles.
The following year the original owner sold the car back to Porsche Leeds who very quickly resold it to a regular Porsche customer based near Bath. He retained the car for a couple of years before selling it to his local dealer, the Porsche Centre Bristol, in 2015. During his ownership it was serviced on the 6th June 2014 as per schedule at 16,752 miles by the Porsche Centre in Bristol as noted in the service book and detailed in the invoice on file. During this ownership mileage increased to 18,703 miles.
In August 2015 the third owner purchased the GT3 from the Porsche Centre Bristol as detailed in the sales invoice on file. The car was immediately placed into specialist dehumidified storage with his collection from where it has only recently emerged. In 2018 it was taken to the Porsche Centre Swindon for a service and maintenance work as stamped in the service book and detailed in the invoice on file – at this point the mileage was 19,039 miles.
The Porsche remains in fabulous original condition in all respects and has clearly led a gentle life, unlike many others it has never been modified and hence remains faithful to factory specification. It is not just the freshness of appearance that impresses as on the road this GT3 excels with a tautness to proceedings found only in a lightly used well-maintained example. This generation of GT3 are so good to drive, the relatively small footprint of the 997, super steering, six speed manual gearbox and Mezger engine all combining to make a virtually perfect package and driving tool.
Now with 20,000 miles covered this excellent example comes with all books, keys, tools and history.
