To­tal 911 ver­dict

Total 911 - - Porsche Index: 996.1 Gt3 -

Be­ing the first 911 to wear the GT3 badge en­sures this car has a rather spe­cial place in Porsche’s his­tory: it rep­re­sented a step change in the way Porsche ap­proached its GT and blue chip cars. A 911 built for the track but equally en­gag­ing on the road, the GT3 boasts a pre­ci­sion and fi­nesse to its drive which en­abled en­thu­si­asts to start tak­ing the 996 se­ri­ously. If you’re used to more mod­ern it­er­a­tions where you need to dig be­neath lay­ers of driver as­sis­tance sys­tems to un­earth the real driv­ing en­joy­ment, then the 996.1's ana­logue ap­proach will be a rev­e­la­tion.
