911/996 GT3 RSr

Currently in its 2004 Le Mans livery, The #31 Petersen/White Lightning RSR has an exceptional race history having won the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Petit Le Mans and last year's ALMS GT2 championship.

This 996 RSR # WPOZZZ99Z4S693066 and its accolades are written in stone. In its inaugural race in 2004, it was the Le Mans pole sitting car for LM GT, LM GT class winner/champion at Le Mans and finished a 10th overall in that year's 24 hour race. In 2005 RSR #693066 finish 2nd in class in LM GT2 at Le Mans. In the same year, Petersen White Lightning used RSR #693066 to win the American Le Mans Series GT2 Class Championship as well as becoming the GT2 Class Team and Driver champions.

Absolutely every race throughout this RSRs career can be accounted for up to its retirement after the 2005 Monterey Sports Car Race, the history of the drivers who sat behind its steering wheel (Timo Bernhard, Jörge Bergmeister,Patrick Long, Lucas Luhr, Sascha Maassen, David Murry, Michael Petersen & Craig Stanton) as well its driver histories behind its steering wheel and it is being used a the ALMS Press Car. It was also used in a Road & Track article featuring this RSR driven by Patrick Long against a Carrera GT&

After its 2005 Le Mans finish it was decided to used this chassis number on a brand new B tub. New 996 RSRs were not readily available at the time, but a new tub was. This B tub is accounted for and available with this RSRs purchase. The identity used for all races is consistent and as original WPOZZZ99Z4S693066. Once retired for good, the serial number was returned to the original undamaged car. The second B tub has been retained with the RSR to ensure its being accurately accounted for.

Below are the links to its history. You can also see the B tub on the second thread and showing its 5 races and the its crash out at Le Mans 2006 in the livery the tub still sits in.

Its serial number raced on the B tub because the Petersent team wanted a new 996 RSR to campaign but nothing was available from the factory at the time. 996 RSRs were manufactured in on 2004-2005 with approximately 27 units manufactured in total. Because a new and complete RSR could not be procured, the Porsche factory instead supplied a new tub and completely new car was built with new parts by Petersen team. The WPOZZZ99Z4S693066 chassis number simply moved from the original chassis number to the new B tub. Thus, the life of a championship winning race car was preserved! The B tub raced five races before it was written off while being driven by Jörge Bergmeister at Le Mans in 2006. The A tub 996 RSR is as it sits today in our showroom, fitted with the original chassis number is as originally supplied by the Porsche factory.

This 996 RSR #693066 is complete with its homologation papers, FIA passport/documents as well as a complete history/binder/records from new.
