Interior & Equipment

On the inside, Porsche focused on weight reduction and getting the GT3 as close as possible to its race-spec sibling. But even though the cabin was stripped off many of the 911’s usual creature comforts the GT3 still comes with a Single CD Player, Climate Control with Air Conditioning plus this GT3 benefits from Club Sport derived options such as a Full Roll Cage, Porsche Recaro Carbon Back Seats with Schroth Racing 6 Point Harnesses, Lifeline Zero 2000 2.25 Electric Slimline Fire & Safety System, FIA Battery Master Cut Out Switch and Momo Steering Wheel.  The cockpit of this GT3 is in excellent order throughout with black leather door cards and race inspired minimal trim...

Exterior

Finished in Porsche Arctic Silver the exterior of this GT3 is excellent all round with stunning paint finish and is clear to see from the pictures. Panel fit is as per factory and the underside is immaculate it looks as if its never seen rain.  All lights, decals and glass are in perfect order.  There is minor stone chipping in the usual areas as to be expected.  At the point of photography we did not have the caps to cover the toweye holes in the bumpers as it had just been transported to us and the toweyes inserted, we now have these caps...

Wheels Tyres & Brakes

The original fit Porsche 18" Sport Design GT3 Split Rim Wheels with contrasting coloured Porsche Crest centre caps were refurbished in Jan 2016 and are unmarked.  Grip is provided by excellent all matching correct spec Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 R tyres all round.  The brakes of this GT3 have been uprated to the Porsche MK2 GT3 6 Pot calipers with brand new discs and Carbone Lorraine sintered brake pads, the stopping power is mind blowing...

Engine & Transmission

The Mk1 996-based GT3 was the work of Porsche's Weissach Motorsport Department. Water-cooled, like every 996, but based on the old Mezger flat-six that took Porsche to Le Mans victory with the 911 GT1.  The 996 GT3 came with 355 horsepower on tap, which made it the most powerful, naturally aspirated 911 in production at the time, 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 188 MPH.
The engine bay of this GT3 is immaculate, as you would expect from such a low mileage car.  Driving is just pure heaven along with sharp throttle response and a tremendous exhaust note this GT3 cannot fail to impress.  The clutch and gear selection operate with ease, starting hot or cold is instant...

Summary

At approx. 9000 miles this GT3 was recorded on VCAR as a Category C Insurance Loss, damaged but repairable on 20th Jan 2010.  The car has had an identity check carried out by VOSA and VIC PASS issued on 18th October 2013, the supplied HPI report documents this.

The GT3 was purchased by the owner of a bodyshop and the nearside front damage professionally repaired to a very high standard and used by him for many European Driving trips without fault.

For piece of mind we will supply an independent full Mechanical and Geometry check from a Porsche UK Approved Bodyshop prior to sale as there's simply nothing to hide. This road and track inspired MK1 GT3 needs to be enjoyed to its full potential and represents excellent value for money considering regular similar mileage cars are now circa £80k.

The history file contains the original 2 Porsche keys, Porsche Leather Bound folder with all official handbooks, receipts and invoices for thousands of pounds of Porsche and Specialist services plus MOT history back to 2006 all documenting the low recorded mileage.

More Details

The Porsche 996 was an all-new design made by Harm Lagaay – the first new 911 that didn’t carry over a significant component from a previous variant. All the bodywork, interior and drive-train were new, including the first water-cooled engine in a 911. The first 996s were available as a coupé or cabriolet, initially with rear wheel, or later, with four-wheel drive, and a 3.4 litre normally aspirated engine producing 296bhp.

The "GT3" nameplate was introduced in 1999 as part of the first generation of the Porsche 996 model range. As with Porsche's previous 911 RS models, the 996 GT3 was focused on racing, and so was devoid of items that added unnecessary weight to the car. Sound deadening was almost completely removed, as were the rear seats, rear loud speakers, sunroof, and air conditioning although automatic air conditioning and CD/radio became no-cost optional add-ons.

The engine of the 996 GT3 set it apart from most of the other Porsche 996 models, although it shared the same basic design of the standard so-called "integrated dry sump" flat 6 engine. The engine is naturally aspirated and based on the unit used in the Porsche 962 and Porsche 911 GT1 race cars. That engine was known as the 'Mezger' engine, after its designer Hans Mezgar the engine uses the original air-cooled 911's versatile dry-sump crankcase, with an external oil reservoir. The 996 GT3 has 355 BHP compared to the 296 BHP of the regular 996.

To bring the vehicle's track-prowess to the maximum level, Porsche endowed the GT3 with enlarged brakes, a lowered, re-tuned suspension system, lighter-weight wheels and a new front bumper with matched rear spoiler to help increase downforce, thereby increasing grip. The GT3 was claimed to be the first car to crack 8 minutes (7 minutes and 42 Seconds in fact) at the Nurburgring.
