A bit more info from the potential buyer:

“I had a deposit on the car, and had a PPI done. It is indeed a 996.1 GT3 Clubsport...The DME report came back with 672.5 engine hours and a somewhat expected 65,535 R1 over revs, but also a very concerning 12,342 R2 over revs with the last event being at 666.6 engine hours (~ 6 engine hours ago). The car is in rough shape cosmetically and mechanically as...noted, and would take a lot to put it back to stock form. It has also had some previous paintwork on the front bumper/hood, the shocks need to be rebuilt, trans could be refreshed, etc.

On the surface it seems like a fair deal, but the cost to refresh that engine would be half the purchase price, not to mention everything else that it needs to make it track-worthy again. I passed on the car but another dealer has likely already bought it as they were waiting on my decision. It may show up for sale again soon, keep your eyes peeled”

Not that I was considering this one but I would definitely pass based on the PPI results.
