I sold my 997 GT3 for a 991 gen 1 GT3 in October. Not been out much but so far I am in love. Much better all rounder in my opinion. Mine is guards red with club sport pack and 9500 miles. Bought from OPC for £125k (great spec but no carbon brakes)

Just added a full akrapovic race system as well Thumb

would love the AK exhaust but not sure it would pass many noise police at the track
The std exhaust is pretty noisy at full chat Smile

Sounds a good buy, unsure if prices are creeping up a bit although most of the cars on the market just now seem to be a bit stagnent, although when clubsport scone up they seem to sell. I’m gutted I missed out on one but I need my escos away first, it’s away for some paint just now so when I get it back it should be good to go.

I like the one at top555 but just way out my budget, there’s another low mileage clubsport on ph that’s an early car but it’s been on the market a while at 132k.

I really need to get a run out in one but it’ll just make me want more Smile

I will track it but mostly at Knockhill in Scotland. I can get away with the noise at KH but no way would I be able to use it anywhere else. It is LOUD Thumb

All of the online reviews for Motorhub in Keighley are shocking, avoid.


As it has been said, for any 991.1 GT3 purchase, getting the 10 year engine warranty from Porsche in writing is a must.

Does this mean it has to be bought from a OPC?

The black one at Topp555 has everything i want but just 10k out my budget

How the hell do they stay in business? And how do they maintain a trading license?
No way on this earth would I go near an establishment like that..... nooo

I probably would not buy from them either with that reputation but if the car passes an OPC inspection and is still under warranty so I would never have to deal with motor-hub after the purchase I would reconsider.

Such a shame because it is a lovely car.

I used to live / work near them - their reputation was in the toilet and well known about locally

First OPC flipped GT3.2 car at Porsche Glasgow ...

http://locator.porsche.com/ipl-customer/ipl/details/details.ipl?md5=2afc421d07f62917f7e7c3b9d059166b&url=uk

Reckon car was about £138K list, so that is a £57K mark-up (41%). nooo
Pretty sickening really and so soon after launch.
Owner must have had a tremendous time doing those 800 miles. Whistling
Obviously a genuine enthusiast. Cigar

Wonder if it’s been chopped in against a new RS?

I did hear the caveat for some getting an RS allocation was to trade their GT back at list!

I wonder what they would want for a manual CS?

Wondered this as well. But if you're on for a GT3RS build slot, why go through the hassle of a GT3 purchase, unless there is something in it for you Question Why not go 50-50 on the £57K profit with the dealer?
Whatever it is, it is a racket that does no favours to genuine enthusiasts who want the cars to drive and enjoy.

Which is correct, to stay in the line for future models you have to sell any existing GT car to an OPC and specifically the OPC providing you with the next option

on that £57k mark up, the OPC is probably taking a sizeable chunk of that

Im all for looking after existing customers but the whole opc and gt car thing just seems like a big cartel!!

I get the whole relationship thing but how are they expecting to bring new people to the brand, it kinda puts me off buying from an opc when the time comes.
