2009 Porsche 911-997 GT3 CUP Coupe.

As of this post, the car is available for purchase.

Formula One Sport Cars in Coral Gables, Florida, a family owned and operated dealership since 1976 specializes in pre-owned Luxury, Exotic and Sport cars.

The focus on only offering the most pristine, low mileage examples of some of the world's finest vehicle marquees, such as: Aston Martin, BMW, Bentley, Ferrari, Hummer, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Rolls Royce.

I can also personally vouch for their extremely high dedication to a standard of exceptional customer satisfaction that cannot be surpassed.

2009 Porsche 911 997 GT3 CUP Coupe.
215 units of this production-based racing car developed in Weissach will be built for the racing season 2009 on Porsche's production line in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is entering the 2009 motorsport season with engine output of 420 hp. The 911 GT3 Cup (997) was developed based on the current 911 generation, which has been gradually and successfully established in the market since the end of 2004.

The most significant modification compared with 2007 model year is the rear end following the design of the production model. Air venting slits ensure better dissipation of heat at the rear. The 3.6-litre six-cylinder boxer engine developed in Weissach is also based on the street-legal GT3 and develops maximum output of 420 hp, 20 horsepower more than on the previous model. The sequential six-speed transmission with interruption of engine power enables the driver to shift up under full throttle without disengaging the clutch. The transmission itself has been optimised and the gear ratios adjusted to the characteristics of the engine. Weighing 1,150 kg in race trim, the new 911 GT3 Cup has a power-to-weight ratio of 2.7 kg per horsepower.

26 units of the 911 GT3 Cup built for the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup feature a special exhaust system with an even more striking sound pattern reminiscent of the Formula 1 racing scene as well as PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes as exclusive highlights. Compared with conventional brake discs, PCCB reduces unsprung masses by 20 kg and sets new standards in terms of responsiveness, resistance to fading, and a long service life. The racing cars entered worldwide in the Carrera Cup feature a modified exhaust system and steel brake discs.
