  1. With interesting (ugly) headlight covers in place, the front of this 996 could be mistaken for its successor. Unreal Sound......................... https://flatsixes.com/cars/911-gt2gt3gt3-rs/this-rally-spec-996-gt3-is-a-handful-and-a-half/
  2. Close $374,995 😀 (p.s. sensation GT3) https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2019-porsche-911-gt3-991-manual-my19/OAG-AD-18151284/?Cr=0
  3. FYI...............I have booked my 996 GT3 in for it's yearly service @ PCM 14/02/2020, (20 years to the day from when Ray Young) picked it up new in Brisbane with rego OGT3.
  4. Get in NOW (beat the enviable price rise 😉)_ Magnus Walker has just purchased a 996.2
  5. I thought it was BS also..., Until today the following turned up on Piston Heads UK: $99,995 UK Pounds @ today exchange = $ AUS 187,036 (Plus import cost/GST/LCT/++++) https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/porsche/911-gt3-996/-64-2004-porsche-996-2-gt3-rs/10115214
  6. Thought you Nations Cup car owners may want to hook into this 911uk discussion: (the clip of Goodwood Festival of Speed Lowndes''s Green Eye Monster is worth the look) http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=136529&sid=3c35b9e0411c472605fddcd5742a0c96
  7. Genuine Porsche Tequipment Accessory cage, not that there is anything wrong with that..........., also appears to have 996mk2 front callipers and larger disc rotors and the engine decal is missing from engine bay lid. Me TOO: They are one hell of a car for that level of coin. I'd buy it if I didn't already have one.
  8. Recently listed 996 MK1 GT3 _ 83,800 KM looks good @ (too cheap) $125K https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2000-porsche-911-gt3-996-manual/SSE-AD-6357410/?utm_campaign=search-alert&utm_source=notification-center&utm_medium=email I saved a copy to my hard drive (thanks to Jason A 😀) evo-gt3-20-years-oct-2019.pdf
  9. 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.
  10. 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)
  11. 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 😉)
