2009 Porsche 997 GT3 Cup Car

s/n WP0ZZZ99Z9S798109, engine no. 946

White with Black Interior

A fixture in motorsports for fifty years, the Porsche 911 continues to be the force to be reckoned with in racing events around the world. For over 15 years the GT3 Cup Car has been offered by Porsche Motorsports to privateer teams, who run them in a variety of events, where they not only win their class but often garner outright victories against much more exotic purpose-built race cars. The cars excel at endurance racing but are equally well-suited to shorter sprint races, and thanks to the excellent support from Porsche Motorsport and private engineering firms, the cars are extremely competitive but also relatively straightforward and cost-effective to run, particularly compared to prototypes.

This particular car is a competitive and sorted 2009 example which incorporates changes over earlier cars including upgraded engine case, transaxle, updated exhaust, and revised rear wing with Gurney flap. The car completed the SCCA National Championship Runoffs in October 2014, driven by Fantasy Junction’s Spencer Trenery, and was the highest finishing Porsche in the entire event (and finished second only to the tube frame Corvette of Phoenix Racing). More recently, in 2018, this example won SCCA Major Super Tour events at Thunderhill, setting a new qualifying lap record in the process. Prior to the Fantasy Junction ownership, the car was previously run by TPC Racing (Michael Levitas, Randy Pobst, David Williams) and was raced in the IMSA Yokohama support series. Its logbook shows that it raced actively in 2011, driven by James Hoddinott at Sebring, Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, and Mosport. The car also raced at Sebring in 2012 and Watkins Glen in 2013. The car placed second in the 2013 Gold Class of the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge Series.

The current specifics include the following: 

Approximately 60 hours on sealed engine, which was built by Porsche Motorsports North America (PMNA)

Approximately 5 hours on rebuilt transaxle by Bill Rader ($10,180) 

Sealed PMNA ECU

Re-tubbed in 2012 with factory replacement 2009 shell and cage

Updated front monoball suspension

Upgraded Motec ADL 2 Pro logging dash and data system with brake pressure senders and steering position sensor

Motorsports Sachs adjustable shocks

Rebuilt brake calipers with new ceramic pistons at all four corners

Rebuilt front struts

Newer rotors and Pagid green pads at all four corners

Hardwired for in-car video (camera not included)

Recent clutch

Fuel Safe fuel cell, window net, and belts are current

Additionally, the car comes with a used spare splitter, a set of spare wheels, a cool suit (shirt not included), and miscellaneous other small items.

The car was recently set up by Nico Castellaccio of Miglaiore Motorsports and is both turnkey for track use and very competitive. It is the most technically sophisticated and competitive 997 Cup eligible for SCCA GT2 competition and is also ideal for PCA, SCCA club, and endurance racing. Cosmetically, the car is white beneath its peel-off graphics but does display the normal bumps and bruises related to SCCA/NASA Grand Touring competition. There are areas of paint blends in several areas, as well as normal wear to the bodywork and front windscreen. While it can be used exactly as-is, it would ultimately benefit from a cosmetic restoration. It comes with PCA and SCCA log books. 

PLEASE NOTE THIS CAR DOES NOT HAVE A US DOT COMPLIANT VIN AND CANNOT BE REGISTERED FOR STREET USE.
