  1. This Porsche press car must have done a heap of work in the hands of motoring journalist over the years ☺
  2. Agree, but the car is legit? Check registration status Rego: 606XRV Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) WP0ZZZ99ZYS690241 Description 2000 PORSCHE 911 COUPE Purpose of use PRIVATE Status REGISTERED Expiry 08/07/2020
  3. This is interesting, Andy Enright (Wheels) confidently makes the following statement: One enduring myth, repeated ad nauseam, is that the the Mk1 was built at Weissach, whereas the Mk2 was developed there but built alongside other 911s at Zuffenhausen. It’s poppycock. They’re all built at Zuffenhausen. Production of the first batch of 1350 GT3s was scheduled for late 1999 to accommodate the production of 996 Turbo. The only fully Weissach-built vehicles were the GT3R race cars. Then again, Josh Barnett (UK Total 911) (some years ago) made this one: Enthusiasts recognised immediately that the road-going 996 GT3 launched in autumn 1999 had reignited the flame of the much-missed RS. Better still, while previous RSs had been lightened and fettled 911s off the line, the new 996 GT3 was a more rigorous conception built at Weissach from the chassis up. I don't know where the truth lies, but I like Josh's story better 😀 https://www.total911.com/997-gt3-rs-4-0-porsches-last-stand/
  4. Late response, nevertheless Meguiar's Gold Class Trim Detailer worked for me. 👍
  5. Bargain (for a Porsche): Between 1999 and 2000. 1858 Mk1 GT3s were built. Only 308 being right-hand drive [90 delivered to Aus] Just re-watch this video if in any doubt 👍
  6. Edgy I was with you, then referred to my (Australian) 1999/2000 Porsche 911 GT3 Product Information (bible) Porsche refer to: Clubsport & Comfort pack GT3s. Note: Clubsport & Comfort pack GT3s ~ same original RRP, same engine, same power transmission, same brakes, same chassis and suspension, same exhaust, same wheels, same tyres etc all good❤️
  7. Looks sensational (biased opinion), was last advertised 2018 for $169K @ same KMs (previously discussed on this thread, red badges looks like Melbourne Shannons Auctions sold GT3)
  8. Here hoping your OK, @ the $$ you got the GT3 for you stole it 😀. Re-trim the front seats and you will add $20K to its value. The following article should give you hope _ 180,000 miles (290,000 KM) Mk2 996 GT3 from the UK story. https://teamspeed.com/forums/gt/63801-996-gt3-mkii-180-000-miles-sale.html
  9. My suggestion on your requirements/expectations: why not stretch to a 997.1 GT3 (I suggest overtime you will enjoy more and with less depreciation come out the other side a possible winner)
  10. Not for me! but has some history/money spent on this GT3 (2001 RS): (recently sold at RM Sotheby's for $172,500 (UK Pounds) (Whilst the ‘Cup’ cars served well in National and Supercup Championships, the GT3 R was the first of the internationally homologated GT3 race cars and was followed by the RS (from 2001, not to be confused with its later road-going sibling) and finally the RSR. All three variants dominated their classes in major championships around the world, and the model remains as one of the most successful series of racing Porsches built.) https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19/london/lots/r0046-2001-porsche-911-gt3-rs/817065
