997.2 GT3

Total 911 - - Cars Of 2018 -

While the 996.1 rep­re­sents the first of the now-idolised GT3 lin­eage, Porsche’s 997.2 ar­guably rep­re­sents its sweet spot. Think pas­sive rear axle, six-speed man­ual gear­box and glo­ri­ous, me­chan­i­cally as­sisted power steer­ing all com­bin­ing to cre­ate a scin­til­lat­ing driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, pow­ered by a stonk­ing flat six pro­duc­ing 435hp at a heady 7,900rpm. Few 911s of­fer a more com­mu­nica­tive, in­tox­i­cat­ing drive out­side of the Rennsport lineup, and the sub­se­quent 991’s bloated, tech-laden reper­toire has only served to fur­ther rose-tint the spec­ta­cles with which purists look at the last 997. As the 911 marches to­wards even greater dig­i­tal in­te­gra­tion go­ing for­ward, the 997.2 will only ap­pear more clas­sic, boost­ing its ap­peal among purists.

Why you Should buy Sweet spot of the en­tire 911 GT3 story. WATCH out for Crash dam­age, and en­sure re­call for MY2010 cars to fix rear hubs has been ad­hered to. Price now £100,000+
