‘1 of 26’: Australia Edition Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Hits the Auction Block

Obtaining a 911 GT3 is like walking into a Rolex store and asking to buy a GMT Master II, it’s not going to happen. To even get your hands on a ‘basic’ GT3 is a task in itself, let alone a 1-of-26 ’70 Years of Porsche Austalia Edition’ 911 GT3 Touring like the one collecting cars is offering right now.

Arguably the best driving experience you can get your hands on at any price point, we’ve had the pleasure of driving the 922 generation Porsche 911 GT3 on track and street in the years after its launch in Australia and we can attest to the aura that surrounds this nameplate. With bidding reaching more than $635,000 AUD at the time of writing and hours left on the auction block, this could be one of the most expensive 992 GT3s ever sold.

We called the Australia Edition 911 GT3 the ‘Perfect Spec’ when the car was announced back in June 2021. The ‘Touring’ chassis is already the model to buy in our eyes, a manual exclusive option without all the fancy aero that you get on the standard car, it’s better suited for driving every day. That’s before you even look at the exclusive ‘Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’ options that add up to over $90,000 AUD on the Aussie spec car.

Only 25 were offered to Porsche’s best clients in Australia with the unique badging, a bespoke interior colour scheme of Graphite Blue with Madraskaro Check cloth inserts, a painted key with an interior-matched pouch, and a ’70’ embossed armrest cover. We love how understated the exterior of the vehicle is, a gorgeous Fish Silver Grey metallic paint option recognises the very first Porsche shipped to Australia.

Outside of the exclusive options the Australia Edition GT3 Touring’s engine and drivetrain remain unchanged. The same exhilarating 4.0-litre flat-six delivers 375kW to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloy centre-lock wheels channel the race car, while the standard safety and infotainment functions remain, including carbon-backed sports seats, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, a multifunction steering wheel, switchable driving modes, a configurable instrument cluster, and a touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation amongst others.

The car is currently located in Victoria and is listed through collectingcars.com and via the link below. We’re predicting a big number for this Australia Edition GT3 Touring with just 763km on the clock. Bidding is currently exceeding $635,000 AUD at the time of writing and with hours left before the auction closes, this could be the closest we get to a million-dollar Porsche GT3.
