Just wanted to know your thoughts on this GT3, I have seen it, its in great shape and its history is impeccable, but mileage is a worry and it looks like poverty spec?

Would like your thoughts on the Price as well

Question

Upper dash is leather and has pcm and pccb's, can't remember it you could spec Bose but mine came to 90k ish new and I bet this was more as pccbs were more expensive that club sport with buckets.

I really wouldn't think POV spec at all.

looks a good price in the current market if you're not set on buckets.

But is the market on a downwards trend for these cars? The majority seem to be lingering in the classified. Targa Florio has a lovely-looking white one that's been lingering for months and months..maybe it has a history? Either way, that would be my only concern

2007 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Jun 14, 2017 3:02 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I saw this the other day when I was on Furlongers site checking out the spec on the CLK63 BS again!

I thought it looked bland and a bit "normal" without the buckets maybe is the colour? I had to read the advert again to make sure it wasn't a Carrera with a body kit. It looks like good value though, especially with the PCCB's. The one at Targa Florio looks the part with the buckets, harnesses and scaffolding in the back but its 20% more!.

Price seems about right considering the mileage and comfort spec.

Low mileage clubsports seem to be the most desirable at the moment and generally sell very quickly.

I have a feeling the white one a Targa Florio used to have some really gash stripes down the side which could explain why it has been around a longtime.

I guess I am spoilt with my Turbo and its so much faster.

They really want my car, its in there being serviced, and I have it a few years, so always on the look out.

I don't do much mileage as I'm always in the M, so I was thinking this might be a wiser buy with regards to appreciation.

It's not just me then as I thought it was bland, and as mentioned, it just looks like a carrerra with a kit on compared to my car.

Still going for the Black then... Thumb

Thats a lovely car.

With that spec' it looks like it would be an awesome road car to own. The mileage is reflected in the asking price and would makes it less precious to actually go out and drive.

I also love the stealth colour scheme but, sadly, it's got too many pedals for me. Wink

Yep, really like that but is it better than a turbo on the road?! Especially as the Spa trip would a real test

I know this is not an apple to apple comparison but (to me) it looks good value compared this.... http://www.911virgin.com/porscheforsale/986/9934S/

They are asking £80K for a 993 C4S with 80K on the clock.

Not sure about Bland??? It looks like fricken Beast - what more you after - go faster stripes and a cherry bomb exhaust ???????

I'm not a GT3 man due to being a Cab die hard and also don't have the cash but everyone knows the GT3 is a very special car.

Over a Turbo though ?????? It's a first world choice and no mistake but surely the Turbo can't be beaten unless your a Track fiend ????

The definition of bland is vey subjective, I suppose my turbo addiction makes me bias! I adore the idea of a GT3 but don't think I'll ever get over of the "turbo" allure.

Track fiend or not, from my experience a lightly fetled turbo is serous competition for anything on track, including a GT3.

It's ancient - 2003!
I quite fancy a Ferrari ff (and so does my poodle).

On a serious note though, I have a mate that bought a gt3rs a while back and it's doubled in value. He drives it about 1000 miles a year. I get it that it's an investment, but turbos and regular GT3's really are significantly different investments surely?

I struggle to get my head around relatively new cars not losing money and how and why the speculators see their future value.

Dont know

He has unbelievable cars, last week he had both of my favourites an F40 and a 288 GTO.

To the OP, that's a great road going GT3, really good colour in the flesh. Good price also.
