I've just spotted a 997 GT3 in white clubsport pack in the BCA catalogue.....not the sort of car you would expect floating through an auction....How much would this be expected to achieve? Seems a nice spec and with 56k and 7 OPC service stamps the history is all there!

Maybe it has over revs and therefore porsche cannot/will not put a warranty on it...?

They need a factory service history to retail it through an OPC and a lot of them have been looked after by specialists so it could be that too. The other possibilities are that it may either have modifications which are too expensive to reverse (and still make money - just swapping aftermarket brakes to stock through an OPC costs thousands, but if it were on non-OE wheels or something like that it gets silly) or the mileage may be too high for them to want to retail it.

In short, there are actually quite a few reasons why an OPC wouldn't retail a perfectly decent GT3, so it could be a very decent car.

No pics or appraisal yet so I will keep an eye out.....prices do seem nuts at BCA....I bid on a 996 C4S when I was looking. I went to Blackbushe specifically to view/bid on it. CAP was showing £19200 and I was under the impression it would go for the £23k mark....It was a good one but needed money spent such as tyres, discs & pads and a few little cosmetic jobs. I bid up to £25800 which with the buyers premium would've owed my £27000 which was a lot in my eyes for an auction car with a lot of unknowns....the hammer fell at over £27k!!

I'd tend to say more like £70k, purely because anything £75k+ will get you a lower mileage car from a decent independent dealer.

Agree

Comforts start in high 70s, clubsports in the 80s and not nc essarily low mileage either.

None, not CS anyway, but there have been some nice, comfort spec cars about at £75. Club Sport seem to be a little higher again.

Sadly I missed what this made at auction, but it's now available at Exclusive Autos in Watford for £79,950.

This one was a grade 4 at BCA (grade 1 being the best and grade 5 being the worst). Condition report showed various marks etc and the driver's seat is worn through on side bolster (which you can just about see in the ad). To be fair though, £79k seems to be the entry point for 997 GT3's, so mileage and condition-wise it would likely meet expectations.

There was a thread about Exclusive Autos on the Z3M Coupe forum a few months ago which suggests they're not afraid of buying cars in need of tlc. That said though, also from the discussion on the Z3MC forum it seems they're happy to negotiate too, so if anyone's in the market they may be up for a deal...

Body wise the car has had more or less every panel painted apart from the spoiler and the roof. The engine is strong and the car has a full Porsche service history. Those tyres are ancient and could be doing with getting renewed. Cup front splitter is marked to hell but that's going to happen. Never even noticed the seat issue. Plate GT03YYY went free with the car so they can jog on with that. I reckon it's too much, £73500 at best. FYI I got £68k for a trade in. Also, it has RSS engine mounts.

Exclusive Autos made some noise on Instagram that they had sold it, but unusually for them, there was no photo of the car with its proud new owner.

Then today it turns up at N K Sports and Prestige: https://www.nksportsandprestige.co.uk/used-cars/porsche-911-3-6-997-gt3-2dr-derby-201801042445416

Funny how a £73k car won't sell for £80k isn't it?

Have to say I hate seeing it unsold. It look's great especially with the geo set up that I had last done specifically for Knockhill.

Interesting question. At what price would you buy your own car back?
