Everyone is talking about the 992-generation Porsche 911 GT3 and there's nothing wrong with that, because it's an amazing sports car. However, we shouldn't forget about the previous 911 GT3, which is almost as exciting, especially if it sports a Gulf livery.
What, what? A factory 911 GT3 in Gulf livery? When did that happen? Well, it's puzzling because Porsche didn't offer such a paint scheme. The car you're looking at is an aftermarket conversion. The GT3 is finished in the factory-standard Miami Blue, but it received Orange stripes and "Gulf" logos on the lower sides, the front hood, roof, and rear engine lid. And it looks amazing!

The 911 is no stranger to Gulf liveries. The blue and orange paint scheme has adorned many race-spec 911s from the past, as well as more recent RSR models. The list of Gulf-liveried Porsches is actually much bigger, as it includes legendary race cars such as the 917 and various versions of the 908.

Owning a classic Porsche race car in a Gulf suit is expensive, as these cars can cost well in excess of $1 million, so wrapping a modern cars in blue and orange is not as painful for your bank account.

Speaking of which, this specific 911.2 911 GT3 is actually for sale. It's currently being listed on Elfer Spot and it's located in Austria. Listed at €174,900 (around $211,246 at the current exchange rates), it was originally bought for €240,485 (about $290,460) and comes with all the goodies you can expect in an optioned-up GT3, including carbon-fiber interior trim, full leather upholstery, Alcantara inserts, a painted key, and red stitching.

It also includes a stone protection foil on the front end, while the orange stripes and "Gulf" logos are decals and they're completely removable. Just in case you get bored of them (which shouldn't happen!). The odometer shows only 8,000 km, so it hasn't been driven all that much either.

And in case you forgot, it's powered by a 4.0-liter flat-six engine hood for 500 PS and 490 Nm (493 HP and 339 LB-FT). It's equipped with the PDK transmission for lightning-fast lap times.
