2012 Carrera GTS 997.2 Race Car

Posted by WindingRoad about 4 months, 4 weeks ago


This 2012 Porsche Carrera GTS has been my passion for the past 5 years. The car was purchased August 24, 2014 from Auto Gallery in Woodland Hills, CA. The car was originally leased by a local doctor in Thousand Oaks, CA. I am the second owner. When I bought the car it had 34,942 miles and was certified by porsche for the additional warranty (Certified preowned). Every service, upgrade and part has been documented.

The build sheet for the car indicates the following factory options installed:

MSRP: $113,090.00

Production Complete Date: 4/18/2011

Heated Seats (Front)

BiXenon Headlights w/PDLS

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Ventilated Seats (Front)

Standard Seats

Exterior Color: Carrara White B4

Interior Material/Color: Sand Beige Full Leather Interior

The 997.2 Carrera GTS has many amazing standard options. Most importantly it came with the naturally aspirated 430HP 9A1 DFI engine that also found its way into the first generation 991 cars (See Article Below). The GTS models also came with a factory wide body like the Carrera 4 and turbo. This is the main consideration when the car was purchased as it has the same dimensions as the 997.2 GT3 Cup factory race car. Because of this the Porsche Motorsports racing parts bolt directly on with factory fit and finish. Starting in 2014 the car was meticulously transformed to a track and road car. The car is registered through June 2020 and has passed all CA SMOG tests.

All original parts were documented, labeled and wrapped for protection. The car could return to its stock form with all original parts.

In June 2017 the car was taken to Porsche Newport Beach as there was a check engine light on. It was determined that the PDK had a fault. The transmission was completely replaced under warranty with a brand new next generation PDK transmission. There are less than 2000 miles on the new PDK. I have all documentation of its replacement under warranty with Porsche Newport Beach.

All work on the car was performed by local race shops in Orange County, CA: GMG, Vision Motorsports, TrueSpeed Racing, BBi, Newport Beach Porsche.

The following Porsche Motorsport Factory racing equipment and upgrades were added. Total for all labor and parts to achieve a factory street/Cup car: $147,000.
