De­sir­able op­tions

Total 911 - - Porsche Index: 996.1 Gt3 -

Given that the 996 GT3 is all about the driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, plus the fact that rar­ity lim­its the choice, it’s fair to say this is less of an is­sue. As both of our spe­cial­ists point out, the most im­por­tant thing is find­ing an ex­am­ple that’s been metic­u­lously cared for, and one that boasts a cast-iron his­tory. There are, how­ever, a few things to con­sider:

Colour

An­other area where both Greig daly and Jamie Tyler are in agree­ment is the is­sue of colour. As al­ways it’s a mat­ter of per­sonal choice, but while more sober hues such as Arc­tic sil­ver or Basalt black will al­ways be pop­u­lar, don’t shy away from some­thing more ex­tro­vert. Guards red and speed yel­low suit the GT3’S lines and find favour with plenty of buy­ers.

Com­fort or Club­sport?

As­sum­ing you can find one for sale and are happy to pay the pre­mium, then the lat­ter’s track-fo­cused up­grades prove mighty tempt­ing. not that you’ll be dis­ap­pointed with com­fort spec, of course, and adding the half cage and nomex-cov­ered seats was an ac­cepted mod­i­fi­ca­tion.
