2014-porsche-911-gt3-1

There are some cars which will always command a lot of attention whenever a new version is announced and the Porsche 911 GT3 is one of them. Since the first GT3 version was launched way back in 1999 just over 14000 have been produced and of those that still survive each one has appreciated in value. In other words, they have been a solid-gold automotive investment.

A few years ago we sold a well cared-for 2005 996 GT3 which would be worth around £70k today…..

And also this drop-dead gorgeous 2010 997 GT3 RS which would set you back in excess of £135k in today’s money – possibly even more than that soon as values continue to rise northwards.

We cant tell you what the owners paid for these cars when they bought them from us but they will be comforted by the fact that their GT3’s are akin to having a barrel full of diamonds in the garage. Nice.

The latest (991) GT3 had barely been announced when the right hand drive allocation was sold out – it seems the desire for a GT3 burns bright here in the UK

The only other option it seemed was to purchase a left-hooker since the factory would make a few more of those to satisfy (most of) the rest of the world.

Fortunately we have access to a brand new, unregistered, left hand drive GT3 which has just arrived in the UK from Germany and is vat qualifying.

The specification is as follows:-

Carrera White (Solid)
Leather and Alcantara Interior
GT3 Wheels in Anthracite
Front Axle Lifting System
Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
Sport Seat 6 Point [heated] (Including Harness)
Tracking system (VTS)
Floor mats
Phone Prep
PCM with Navigation
Sound package
Aluminium Interior Trim
Alcantara Steering Wheel
Alcantara Armrest Lid
Red Harness Belts

Just for the record the latest incarnation of the GT3 features a 3.8 litre, flat-six engine mated to a PDK transmission which together produce 475 hp. The car is capable of providing a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph according to the manufacturer.

For further details and pricing please get in touch in the first instance on 01892 506970 because we are not expecting this sought-after GT3 to be available for very long or drop The Car Spy an email at sales@thecarspy.net.

Here’s another car that looks good in white. Standing next to this Cayman S Sport the car looks bigger than the standard Cayman. White seems to give the car a bit more road presence and the black detailing adds a nice touch of contrast. Did you know that Cayman’s are assembled in Finland? Seems like our Nordic cousins are building nice motors as well as mobile phones for the world! They probably have the best drivers in the world too. Anyway back to the white Cayman. This is a limited edition example of 700 ‘specials’ that Porsche produced before the most recent facelift took place. So what’s different about the Sport S? Well, they came in some pretty wild colours for starters – Bright Orange, Signal Green, Speed Yellow and Guards Red. Black and Arctic Silver were available to the more conservative purchaser. They were slightly quicker than the standard 3.4’s because a tuned exhaust was fitted which upped the number of horses to 303. It also sounds a bit more rorty. What else? Well there’s a gorgeous alcantara steering wheel and the instrumentation pod loses its cowling. 19″ Alloys came as standard with ‘Cayman S’ stickering down both flanks. The car was also lowered a tad by 0.4 inches. So there you have it. This is a Cayman which still offers the crackerjack ride of the ‘standard’ car but offers a touch of individuality that makes it stand out in the pub car park. The Carrera White one referred to here is up for sale as a brand new, unregistered car with big savings on the original list price. It also has the rare Tiptronic gearbox option fitted.
