The seventh generation of Porsche's perennial 911 sports car was designated 'Type 991', succeeding the Type 997. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011, the Type 991 is only the third all-new platform for the 911 since the original of 1963, the second being the Type 996 of 1999. Porsche's signature 'flat-six' engine was available in three different capacities in the Type 991 (3.4-litres, 3.8-litres, and 4.0-litres) with power outputs ranging from the entry-level Carrera's 345bhp up to the Turbo S's 552 horsepower. Following its established practice, Porsche also offered Cabriolet, Targa, GT3 and GT3 RS variants to cater for all customer demands ranging from soft-top boulevard cruiser to track-day assault weapon.

In September 2015, the Type 991.2 was introduced in revised and restyled form for the 2016 model year, becoming the '991.2' in factory parlance. To the concern of some traditionalists, turbo-charged engines were now standardised throughout the range. The purists did not have to wait long for their concerns to be assuaged, as in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show Porsche unveiled the limited edition 911 R, featuring the 'old' GT3 RS's normally aspirated 4.0-litre 493bhp engine and a new six-speed manual gearbox. Extensive changes were made to the engine allowing a 9,000 rpm redline from the 4.0-liter flat-six engine. Porsche's focus was on reducing internal friction to improve throttle response. The 991.2 GT3 brought back the choice between a manual transmission or PDK dual clutch transmission. A Touring version was also introduced which came standard with the comfort package and the manual transmission along with the deletion of the fixed rear wing and employing an electronically operated rear wing instead.

Previously registered in Finland, this left hand drive 991.2-generation Porsche 911 GT3 Touring was imported into the UK and registered with the DVLA in July 2021, when it was acquired by its first and only UK-based owner. Presented in the popular colour of Crayon with tinted glass and gloss black window surrounds, over a black leather and cloth trimmed cabin, offset by grey accent stitching and aluminium trim inlays with an incredible 588 miles from new. Specified with the Touring Package, this 911 GT3 features a deployable rear spoiler in place of the substantial rear wing, an engaging manual gearbox rather than the PDK system, and additional leather trim in the cabin. Still under Porsche extended warranty and having been serviced once by Porsche when brought to the UK in 2021.

The 20-inch centre-lock alloy wheels are finished in black and are all shod in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. Factory-fitted equipment includes electrically adjustable heated sport seats, the Sport Chrono package, the Porsche Sports Exhaust, PASM, a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and DAB digital radio, and the nose-lift system. Supplied with its original service book and two sets of keys. Presented as new in the rarer Touring specification, this example is in collector condition and very desirable.
