One of only 37 996 RSRs built by Porsche Motorsport
Retains its original bodyshell and equipped with all 2006 factory updates
Excellent race history including two Le Mans 24hr finishes
State-of-the-art preparation, 100% race-ready with very extensive spares
CHASSIS NUMBER WP0ZZZ99Z4S693080

Somewhat confusing, the model name contains "GT3" whereas these cars were competing in the GT2 class. Designed strictly for competition on the world's most important racing circuits, the 2004 model year 996 RSR represents the last evolution of the 996 GT3 R-RS-RSR lineage during the 1999 - 2006 period. Powered by a 450-bhp 3,598-cc flat-six backed with a six-speed sequential gearbox, and featuring a modified suspension and numerous carbon fiber panels, the RSR proved to be highly competitive. Only 37 RSRs were built by Porsche Motorsport.

Our car, chassis #4S693080 is well known as "The Racer's Group Maldives 996 RSR" resulting from its beautiful multi-colored livery which it ran during the 2004 racing season. Its race history is outstanding including two Le Mans 24 hours finishes and excellent results in the Le Mans Endurance Series in which it ran during 2004, 2005 and 2006. The car's full race history is detailed in the History section and is also viewable in the attached race history file.

Still carrying its original bodyshell and matching numbers gearbox, #4S693080 received all factory updates in 2006 from Porsche Motorsport which included a lightweight water-cooling system, improved lights, lightweight electric harness, Porsche Traction Control and - last but not least - a larger capacity 3,8-litre engine (number 63223028).

With only 4 owners from new, the current owner (a reputable Porsche specialist preparer) bought the car in 2012, undertook a full overhaul and it has since been used sparingly in only 3 track tests. Its level of preparation is truly " state-of-the-art" as evidenced by the following overview:

Wheels updated to fit new, wider tyre sizes from 997 RSR
Engine: 22 hours
Gearbox: overhauled with only 30 minutes on it
new wheel bearings on all four corners
new master cylinders
new reinforced brake pushrod
new clutch & flywheel (from 991 Cup)
overhauled driveshafts
nearly new and current seat belts/extinguisher system
new brake lines
leakage pressure tested (all OK)
overhauled gearbox with only 30min on it
nearly new pads & discs
new engine/gearbox oil
overhauled Sachs dampers with diagram
softer springs
new rear spoiler support
nearly new central wheel bolts
overhauled steering gear
new in-tank fuel pumps and foam
dyno-tested at RS Tuning with open (unrestricted) program

Included in the sale, the following work will be done: suspension crack test and alignment, programming of the engine with 30,8mm Air Restrictors and the installation of a new fuel cell.

Last but not least, a very extensive spares package comes with the car details of which can be found in the "Spares List" file.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning and extremely well-prepared example of the latest evolution of Porsche's most successful GT racer which is eligible for Peter Auto's Global Endurance Legends and also for Masters Endurance Legends where it will be a welcome and front running GT2 class entry.
