Investment potential & ownership experience
You’ll hardly need us to point out that owning a 996 GT3 is going to prove a very special experience, one that delivers you back to a distinctly more analogue age. Of course, it’s worth remembering these cars are almost 20 years old and most have been driven hard, so an element of caution is going to be required when it comes to buying one, and getting the best out of ownership will mean caring for it properly.
As for investment potential, we’ve already noted the upswing in values a couple of years ago, and there’s no reason to think that anything but a steady climb in years to come isn’t on the cards. You should however be aware there are two GT3 markets, split between well-used track cars and, for a considerably higher premium, low-mileage collector cars. However, as the 911 gets larger and more dependent on technology there will always be a ready market for something that demonstrates a purer approach to the business of driving. This is a Neunelfer that fits that particular brief better than most.
