Pamper Your Loved Ones With 18 Porsche 911 GT3s That Are Up For Sale

Anyone remember Mr.Deeds? The movie where Adam Sandler’s character inherits a lot of money and buys a Chevrolet Corvette C5 for everyone in his town? Well, here’s your chance to play that scene out in real life with 18 never-driven Porsche 911 GT3s. But, of course, apart from a really caring person, you’ll also have to be really affluent.

According to Road & Track, someone in the Netherlands is selling 18 Porsche 991.1 GT3s that have never been driven. The price for all of this? A reasonable $2.9 million.

For the wealthy individuals out there that aren’t interested in sharing the love, the price for one of the track-ready 911s is $162,000. That’s a little more expensive than a 2018 911 GT3 that starts at $143,600.

All of the GT3s for sale at Marktplaats are identical, sporting white exteriors with black interiors, and are equipped with the Club Sport Package. The package adds things like a six-point racing harness, a roll cage and a ready-to-install fire extinguisher. The sports cars are fitted with the automaker’s steel brakes, instead of Porsche’s carbon ceramic brakes.

You don’t see a brand new 911 GT3 from 2015 on sale every day, so it’s logical to ask how this seller managed to get 18 of them together. According to the publication, he purchased the vehicles with the intention of using (renting?) them on a racetrack. Unfortunately, the track was never built, leaving the Porsches to sit idly by.

While we normally wouldn’t recommend purchasing a high-performance vehicle that’s been sitting for years without being used, Porsche did extend the warranty for the 991.1 GT3’s engine to 10 years or 120,000 miles, and you could practically create your own racing series with one heck of a performance car. Just make sure that you have found a racetrack first, will ya?

    I’d be curious to hear about the story behind this. Edit: if the unfinished racetrack isn’t the reason behind this.

    So.. A $162k car that’s been sitting for a while or a brand new and more powerful $143k car.. Hmm.. Difficult choice..

      I have a slight suspicion the author isn’t quite the sharpest tool in the shed.

      Car taxes in Netherlands are insanely high (IIRC they have thresholds for CO2 emissions with some insane multiplies), a new GT3 (with tax) costs about €250k, so the €135k price for the cars in that lot is really a good deal.

      Note that US car prices are significantly lower than what we have in Europe. I think the base GT3 price (in European countries without insane taxes like Netherlands) is about €160k ($190k), which makes €135k for a three year old one, quite an enticing proposition for the rest of Europe too.

      So yeah… quality article right here.

      • AxlRock

        So it means that you don’t have to pay taxes while buying a second hand car in the Netherlands?

        • europeon

          The taxes are payed when the car is bought/registered for the first time, they add up to the price of purchase.
          2nd hand cars already have that tax payed, but they still have to pay for registration and annual tax.

  • Selling in bundle hoping that it will look cheap while standard 997 GT3 can be bought for less…

    • Jan Mleziva

      Your point? This is not 997 but newer and better 991, this is not standard but Club Sport Package, and good luck finding never driven 997 GT3. And then in article they compare price of a car in U.S. with a price in Europe..

    Too much white. I want one in orange.

  • karmat

    If I had to choose between a new Chiron or this entire fleet for the same price, I think I’d buy these and drive each one at wide open throttle for a year, then at the end of the year I’d jump a ramp with it, sell it for parts and move onto the next. That’s how I would spend the next 18 years.

    Intercity, the current right owner to the Istanbul Park F1 Circuit in Turkey bought them for GT3 race series they wanted to organise. But when they find out that prices were too high for the potential customers, it was too late. Instead of GT3’s they went with diesel Clio’s and Megane’s. Now GT3’s are for sale.

    • SteersUright

      Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense now.

    • Bob White

      That’s one heck of a downgrade.

    • geekmert

      Oo sarper bey de buradaymış

      • Sarper Sabuncu

        Gündemi takip etmek lazım 🙂

    • LWOAP

      Talk about a downgrade. At least some Megane and Clio RS models.

  • ediotsavant

    One less now.

  • fluffy

    will the exhaust not have rotted in that time?

  • nastinupe

    No miles means that they probably never had their engines “fixed”.
