Zero-mileage 2016 Porsche 911 (991) GT3 Cup is up for grabs in Russia
The seller of this 991-gen Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racecar claims it has seen neither road nor track and wants ₽15 million for it, a rough equivalent of $200,000 USD.
You can buy a new entry-level 911 (992) Turbo for slightly less, but this is probably beside the point, as that one is not a dedicated racecar. The coupe on sale has a technical passport issued by the Russian Federation of Motorsports and comes with a large package of racing spare parts and accessories. The odometer shows 7 km (4.35 miles) of use, though, and the seller does not explain where they come from. In April, the car went through its regular maintenance and had its spark plugs replaced.
The GT3 Cup is built to participate in open-regulation races and the Porsche Supercup. Compared to the standard 911 GT3, the Cup sports a sophisticated aero kit with a large rear wing, special suspension components, and BBS magnesium alloy wheels on centerlocks. The cabin is the epitome of practicality: there is no noise proofing or even trim, but there is one bucket seat, a fire extinguishing system, and a safety cage.
The engine comes from a regular GT3, but the transmission is six-speed sequential one with a bidirectional paddle shifter, rather than PDK. This example was built shortly before the 991 generation was discontinued, so it comes equipped with a four-liter engine rated at 500 PS (493 hp / 368 kW).
