About this GT3
If you're viewing this car, I likely don't need to describe the feeling that you will experience in driving and
owning this vehicle but I will give you a brief overview. It is the most intoxicating, engaging, and emotional
experience you can have behind the wheel of a Porsche. This all radiates from Porsche's racing heritage and years
of engineering expertise built into this vehicle by Porsche. This is the last year for the manual transmission in
a GT3 that we will likely ever see. The incredible reliability of the Metzger engine (which has since been
discontinued on the GT3 models for 2013+) when mated to one of the best feeling transmissions ever utilized in a
road-going car ensures that you always remain 100% engaged, in-control, and in-sync with your vehicle throughout
your entire drive. The steering is the best I have ever felt and has no electronic aids as in the new Porsches
ensuring that you get all the feedback from the road that you need to inspire driver confidence and, ultimately,
your performance and experience behind the wheel. The list goes on and on for this purist driver's car as it can be
considered the last "analog" GT3 we will ever see come out of Porsche.
It has been an absolute dream to own this vehicle. If you have any questions which I have not answered above or
below, would like additional pictures, or simply want to talk Porsche please don't hesitate to shoot me an e-mail.
Vehicle Overview
This garage kept Porsche 997.2 911 GT3 is very likely the best cared for and optioned example on the market and has
been lovingly cared for throughout its life and has been my daily driver and weekend cruiser as long as I have
owned it. The vehicle has never seen the track and has no modifications outside the Porsche options list for this
model. It has every single option that could ever be desired on the 2011 997.2 GT3 for you to utilize however you
choose. The vehicle has never been driven in the rain and has always been protected and cared for as described
within these summaries.
This GT3 has ZERO over-revs in all ranges!
Don't be fooled by the GT3s with lower mileage which may have damaged hosing, valves, fuel systems, and other
components due to not being driven as Porsche recommends (as often as possible) or have not yet graduated out of
their initial-life random failure period. I have all maintenance records showing that all the Porsche recommended
services have been performed on or ahead of schedule as preventative maintenance to ensure the vehicle always
remains at 100%. Above all else, this vehicle just asks to be driven and when you do it will return the favor
through reliability and driver experience.
Vehicle Care
As stated before, the vehicle was never driven in the rain or other adverse conditions. The vehicle was washed
between once a week to once every other week with Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo depending on the number of days driven.
Since owning it, the vehicle has been fully clay-barred to remove paint impurities every 4 to 6 months. Following
the clay bar, Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze is immediately applied to ensure that the paint remains protected
until the next clay bar cleaning as this sealant lasts between 4 and 6 months (longer when not being driven in
weather). A coat of wax on top of the sealant was applied once per month to further protect the paint and bodywork
in the form of Pinnacle's Liquid Souveran Wax. Not only does this method protect the car from almost anything you
can throw at it, it makes it look incredible.
Vehicle Maintenance
I have all the maintenance records since owning this GT3 available for hand-over to the new owner. The following
work was completed in late August 2015 (Porsche's Major service plus other items totaling around $4,500 of
preventative and normal maintenance which you will not have to worry about) and gives you confidence that you are
buying the best and lowest effective entry price 997.2 GT3 available as no maintenance or normal wear items will be
required for quite a long time. All maintenance was performed by Porsche West Houston via Porsche certified
professionals to ensure proper reliability and care.

Performance, Heritage, & Passion
This 2011 911 GT3 uses a highly refined version of Porsche's Metzger 3.8-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder
engine found only in members of Porsche's GT family ending the following model year (RS/RS 4.0 only). This 2011
997.2 GT3 is the very last model year utilizing the famous and phenomenally reliable Metzger engine.
The engine, based on the famous GT1, is unique with its application of Porscheís VarioCam Plus variable
valve-lift and timing technology operating on both intake and exhaust camshafts, rather than solely the intake.
This 911 GT3 boasts a variable intake manifold and a special, low-restriction, large-capacity exhaust system that
ensures free engine breathing. The sound that the Metzger 3.8-liter engine makes is simply breath-taking throughout
the entire rev-range including idle. It is infectious inside and outside of the vehicle. The exhaust systemís
unique, dual, centrally mounted outlets beneath the rear bumper are an instant giveaway to the 911 GT3ís
identity.
The result of these refinements is a power-plant that produces 435 horsepower at 7600 rpm and 317 lb-ft of torque
at 6250 rpm. The high-revving engine has a redline of 8500 rpm, 100 rpm greater and with significantly more low end
torque than the previous generation. As befits its ultra high-performance capabilities and persona, this 911 GT3
comes only with a special six-speed manual gearbox with ratios designed to optimize the engine's extended rev
range. This vehicle is the absolute last year Porsche has offered the GT3 with a manual transmission making this
vehicle an instant classic.
A mechanical limited-slip differential completes the drivetrain. Employing components developed for the awesome
Carrera GT, the differential provides asymmetric limited-slip functions of 28 percent under load and 40 percent in
overrun.
The astounding results are this 911 GT3's ability to run from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. The car continues to
100 mph in only 8.2 seconds. All of this performance while still achieving 24 miles per gallon highway (owner
verified). The 2011 GT3 accelerates from 60 to 120 mph faster than the 911 Turbo of the same model year. The new
aerodynamics on the 2011 model year for this 911 GT3 provide over four times the downforce than the previous
generation allowing for even more steering feel, precision, and driver confidence. This aerodynamic upgrade also
allowed for the anti-roll bars to be stiffened to give a greater degree of front end grip increasing driver ability
and confidence right out of the gate.

Nick Murray's problematic Porsche 911 shows the power of a viral video

Fri, 18 Apr 2014

When Nick Murray took delivery of his 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S in June 2013, he had saved for it for the past five years. He didn't just pluck a random 911 off a dealer lot. He specially ordered his car with thousands of dollars in extras tailored just to him, and he captured all of the options on his YouTube channel. The love affair didn't last long. Eventually the channel became a place for Nick to air his growing list of grievances about his deteriorating 911. Eventually, his mix of righteous indignation and sarcasm went viral.
By late December, he had already had four warranty repairs done on the car. Things got much worse in March. The computers began resetting whenever Nick drove over large bumps. There was also an acrid, electrical smell that occasionally permeated the cabin. Murray filed for Lemon Law protection. Porsche Cars North America contacted him for the first time to fix the problem, but it didn't help.
Things culminated in April when Murray put up a new video that showed more troubles. He began arbitration with Porsche and asked for either his full purchase price back or an exact replacement. The company countered with a portion of what the car was worth, based on its mileage. Murray refused and turned to his YouTube watchers for help. He asked them to spread the word, and the video went viral with over 800,000 views as of this writing. Supporters posted it multiple times on Porsche's Facebook and Twitter sites.

1949 Gm?nd Porsche shows the birth of an icon

Fri, 21 Mar 2014

The Austrian village of Gmünd is more than just difficult to pronounce; it's also the birthplace of the Porsche brand. Before the company ever started building sports cars at its current home base near Stuttgart, the fledgling business completed several vehicles in the tiny town in Southern Austria. In this video, former Pikes Peak International Hill Climb champion Jeff Zwart takes a look at a 1949 Gmünd coupe to see how the company has evolved since its earliest days.
The thing to note about the Gmünd-built Porsches is their absolute design simplicity. The phrase "form follows function" gets bandied around a lot, but it really means something when you look at these early cars. However, the minimalism was partially out of necessity. The vehicles were meant to be sporty but certainly weren't rockets. Power came courtesy of a modified Volkswagen Beetle engine, and anything extraneous would have slowed the models down. Scroll down to watch Zwart go back in time to Porsche's beginnings.

Porsche teams with Delta airlines to woo VIP passengers

Sun, 15 Sep 2013

The next time you're waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, see if you can spot a Porsche Cayenne or Panamera zipping between aircraft on the busy tarmac. The high-performance German vehicles aren't there practicing for an upcoming autocross; they are tasked with whisking some of the airline's most important customers between flights so they can keep their busy schedules intact.
Launched nearly two years ago, the program has proven popular with the automaker, airline and passengers as all benefit from the unique arrangement. Atlanta-based Porsche is able to showcase its cars to Delta's frequent-flying Medallion members, the airline is recognized for providing unusual perks to its high-value customers and those fortunate enough to be surprised with a quick lift are able to make connections without a stressful run through the terminal. Based on its success, the airline is rolling our similar programs in New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis this month.
And don't think Porsche is the only automaker working with an airline to entice its frequent flyers. Mercedes-Benz ran a program over the summer that offered purchasing and leasing incentives to MileagePlus Premier members of United Airlines, and the two are currently shuttling top fliers around Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the automaker's S-Class and GL-Class models.
