I saw an interesting ad for a 997.2 GT3 in Guards Red LHD for £79k on FB. I tried finding it again to no joy, but thought it wasn't a bad price.

Edit: found the advert. Very light on detail

Depends if you can verify the history if it was first used overseas? I'm surprised given it's had the Jonttt carbonique make-over it's not 6 figures Grin

Agreed, or in absence of evidence, one hell of a PPI report. Colini stick results included.

I actually like carbon on the 997. It is a vast improvement on the carbon on the 993’s.

In this case i think it should be allowed....With all of jonttt's efforts and spend on the car, especially the carbon, that must have carried a few large invoices!

I knew what you meant, I feel the same, I remember seeing a Turbo S being broken for parts which every exclusive option fitted ie everything was carbon or leather including vent grills etc..... it was OTT even for me Thumb

Ps I agree that carbon suits the GT cars, it is after all what carbon was designed for ie to save weight on track Wink .......you just don’t see many with it other than maybe carbon buckets, which I guess is the biggest weight saving area.......start looking for carbon wheels and you are in trouble Grin

At least I now know Jonttt has a 993, as you’d never pretend to have that blue interior Surprised

Ah but then there will be carbon off-setting that you can do...you know like Elton did for the Royals flight on his private plane.
I am in credit on my carbon offsetting as I haven't had kids...that is what I keep telling myself anyhow...

Ref the selling I am starting to pull together my war and peace advert, honestly whoever does buy my car will be getting a good deal as I can't see what else they would need to spend on.

Engine has now had a clean bill of health.
Leak test - Check
Engine Diagnostics - Check
Varioram - Check

Tognola said if I had told him it had done 60k he'd believe it. Mind you he knows it as has spent 10 years looking after it!
Just sows even though I put 90k miles on the car as they had mainly been long motorway journeys the car wasn't stressed.

And I had my 1st GT3 drive yesterday which wasn't as scary as I thought it might be!
