  1. Because this is a 996 GT3 ❤️/appreciation thread........................................................................................... Difference: Mk1 996 GT3 Vs. all other GT3 released since, 1. 1st car/build of the GT3 generation, (1st to use Mezger engine, lightweight motorsport components including titanium connecting rods and a plasma nitride hardened crankshaft with eight main bearings, 993 GT2 gearbox etc), 2. Only GT3 hand built at the Weissach Motorsport factory, 3. Built to low/limited numbers for FIA racing certification (not built to customer orders), 4. Never intended or sold in US, not softened for US federal certification, (ride height, no cup holders etc), and 5. Numbers for the collector: Total 1858 built, 308 Right Hand Drive, 90 delivered to Aus.
  2. Porsche 911 GT3 (996) First Generation _ newly released video (interestingly filmed in the US with what I think is the Porsche museum 996.1 GT3) More................. Porsche 911 GT3 – 996 (First Generation) and 991.2 (Latest Generation)
  3. Gordon Murray's MK1 Escort - Retropower Build Episode 16 This video has "movement and sound", the white & steel wheels for me is a little underwhelming for such an incredible build (I would have commissioned vermillion fire or British Racing Green with sprintmaster wheels 😉)
