Why not buy a Porsche 997 GT3 R this Black Friday?

Falken Motorsports’ Porsche 997 GT3 R – a podium finisher at this year’s 24 Hours of Nürburgring – is now up for grabs on German car sales sight, mobile.de. However, don’t be expecting too much of a Black Friday discount.

The famously teal-and-blue liveried Porsche 911 GT3 R will make one of its last public appearance in Falken Tyre’s hands at the Essen Motor Show (running from today until 4 December).

With a €500,000 price tag, the 997 GT3 R certainly isn’t cheap. But, it is a proven front-runner in the VLN series around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Despite the new 991 GT3 R coming online next season, Falken’s racer will no doubt continue to be a good choice for those wishing to race in the SP9 class.

Falken has used the car extensively since taking delivery of this chassis in April 2014, wracking up over 84 hours of track time. Every season it was fitted with around 900 tyres as the team used the demanding Nordschleife circuit to help develop new tyre technology for its road ranges.
