We have the pleasure to offer this beautiful original condition 2007 Porsche 997 GT3 RSR for sale.
Somewhat confusing, the full model name contains "GT3" whereas these cars were built to compete in the GTE (GT2) class of the World Endurance Championship (WEC). Designed strictly for competition on the world's most important racing circuits, the Porsche 997 GT3 RSR was introduced by Porsche Motorsport as its top customer racing model in 2007 following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the very successful 996 RSR. With only 37 cars built in 2007 and a total of 98 cars built in the 6 years from 2007 up to 2012, the 997 RSR is a very rare and sought-after ultimate specification Porsche GT racer.
Our car has following key identification numbers (per the accompanying Porsche Motorsport Data Sheet):
VIN #: WP0ZZZ99Z7S799939
Production #: 047 0065
Roll-cage #: 9291
Gearbox #: 2000 229
The car was sold new by Porsche Motorsport on March 23rd 2007 to Cox Inc. in Japan where it has resided until it was brought back to Europe in August 2020. While in Japan, it has had just two owners from new and - other than a Porsche Challenge Cup race at Okayama - was only used for private track days with protective tape applied to the sensitive stone chip areas. The car has never been accidented and never even been slightly damaged. With less than 7000km on the clock, the car retains its original shell, engine, gearbox and roll-cage so it is fully matching numbers and in immaculate, almost as-new condition.
Total mileage since complete overhaul of the engine and gearbox is 2789km corresponding to +/- 18 hours which we can conservatively call “half-life” thereby leaving a good 20 race-hours before its next service. The car has been freshly stickered in the 2007 Porsche Motorsport factory livery and has been completely gone through. It is sold in 100% race-ready condition evidenced by a new fuel cell, seat, belts, updated fire system and very recent crack test. The engine is fitted with the correct, FIA/ACO approved 29,5mm air restrictors with corresponding engine ECU-mapping and comes with the Bosch engine management software. There is truly nothing further to spend.
Spares include two sets of wheels which are also in as-new condition together with spare bodywork (front and rear bumper, front wings and side spoilers).
This stunning GT2/GTE-class Porsche 997 RSR is totally ready for the 2021 season where it can be enjoyed in both Masters’ Aston Martin Endurance Legends (AMEL) as well as in Peter Auto’s Endurance Racing Legends (ERL) while also being eligible for all USA historic race events such as the Daytona 24hr classic.
