Its not that expensive really. I remember thinking about my E60 M5 I keep paying that £95 a month but nothing has gone wrong yet. Then in the space of six weeks it did 13k's worth in three separate incidents.

So pleased I kept the warranty then!

David has it right about the 991. I loved my 996.2 GT3 but got to the point where I hardly used it. After 18 months in a 997.2 GTS which was a great car, I bought a 991GT3 and its brilliant.

It feels very special but will cope with boring traffic very well, then on the right road its fantastic.

Regards
Fred

Just bought a GT3
Engine model is E (from the WPO chassis number)
will the AE01 engine recall have changed the engine model
or will it still be E ? or did they replace with F or G ?
anyone ?
I don't have the car yet , pickup Friday.
cheers
Peter

If you ask Porsche to print off the details of the car it will have the engine number. This starts with E, F or G.

The print out will also show any recalls (engine replacement).

if the engine has been replaced by Porsche, then the stickers with the engine version & number will have been replaced. Hard to miss;
don't forget the V5C will also need updating doe to the new engine number change Smile

Thanks Jota and Dave
The engine has been replaced by Porsche
the Porsche printout is showing the "STOP SALES AE01 engine recall"
the engine number shows as E103xx
However I thought these early engines were replaced (up to about 750).
I'm guessing they just stamped the engines with the same number as the engine they pulled out.
Like I said will see on Friday.
I will look at the sticker see if that's different from the printout.
Then look for number on the engine when its on a ramp.

Pslot

Firstly, if your buying from Porsche I am sure all will be in order and you will get at least 2 years warranty that will cover everything.

The general consensus on here is that you need to maintain the warranty. This can be done annually for approx £1350.

Not sure if you have read the thread on rennlist? If not, it is worth looking at so you know the story to date.. copy below

http://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-gt3rs-and-911r/914162-some-details-on-9a1-engine-in-gt3r.html

I am sure your new 991 will put a smile on your face!!

Good luck with it and enjoy!

If its E1 then its a replacement engine. Mine is the same, original engine was E0

Ask for a copy of the engine change certificate, I got a copy when I bought mine.

Regards
Fred

thanks for your input all of you
its so good to get a supportive forum
I did get some info from Porsche
It had the engine change , don't have a cert but will ask.for it.
It also had the camshaft wear issue which was resolved about 600 miles ago.
So from reading the post mentioned earlier it looks like they resolved the
crank bolt issue at 1000 miles from new but left the camshaft wear issue , which they probably didn't know about in early 2014.
Has current warranty.
Its been under warranty all the time , so I feel pretty comfortable about it.

to answer you, yes it is red, however it does have its wing end caps.
This red looks very orangey, much more so than earlier guards/Indisch red.

attached a pic/link , car came from JZM.
http://www.jzmporsche.com/used-vehicle-details/Porsche-LHD-991-GT3-Comfort-U1098/

LHD 12000 miles pretty full spec, Comfort not clubsport. full PCM ASK ,with front lift and ceramics.
why this one, good price, had warranty from new, really wanted/need front lift, will probably only track once or twice a year. Drive in Europe quite a lot and going to move over to continental Europe in near future so LHD was not necessary but desirable.[url][/url]

Now the real question : with the 991.2 announced this morning, will people still be prepared to pay over list for the 991.1 while everybody agues about securing a build slot on the new car... Question
