    Anyone see the article in October's Wheels magazine? Actually bought it for the Taycan article, but was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across a 5 page write up on the 996 Mk1 Gt3. In its 20th anniversary year, I guess they were trying to show the contrast to the technical tour de force that is the taycan. Quoting it is a modern classic and stating ' Its true genius is more evident now than when this hero rolled out in 1999' and 'If anything, the 996 gt3 feels more special now than it did when it first appeared. It was launched into a tiny temporal window where an old school approach to driver assistance met with a modern feeling engine and tyre combination. We just didn't know it at the time. With hindsight it's easy to see why the original more than deserves its place in Porsche Canon of greats. Great to see some very complimentary commentary and that it's starting to attract the recognition as a landmark car that it richly deserves. Needless to say that as a current owner, I unopologetically hold the same opinion :
  5. There's a great article in October wheels on the taycan. Also another article on the 996 mk1 gt3...
  7. I have delt with MSWT before and the tyres on my Gt3 are from them, as well as the tyres for my previous turbo. World class showroom, great people and the best prices in town
  8. Ok guys, price dropped to $92K. Its probably the cheapest honest turbo in Oz!
  9. Ha, ha, touche Fraz. I think if there was anymore Porsche wheeling and dealing, my misses would cut my proverbials off!! Ouch.... I think I will keep my mk1 Gt3, and my manhood...
  10. LOL, thx Edgy. Fraz, that yellow one is absolutely stunning. Looks like he had a pro take the photos....your next purchase maybe???
  11. Thx guys, will definitely by bringing it along to future smt's and track days., you can check it out for yourselves. Gt3Loui certainly has a nice ring to it...
  12. Wow, it's funny the threads you come across . Specifically the posts back on page 54/55 about the silver 996.1 gt3 in Syd with 130kms. Flew up from Melbourne, checked it out, drove home and was in time for dinner. Solid honest car, rebuilt engine at south Syd Porsche , tens of thousands in receipts,good bodywork, sorted ohlins suspension with the originals supplied,single mass flywheel , awesome Cs seats (both were options on the komfort)...feels like a Cs, genuine enthusiast seller..... Certainly no garage queen and a well used example, it's even done the targa tour. I guess Sth Sydney did a good job on the engine then. Previous owner had it well sorted and didn't mind spending dollars on it.Reminds me a little of my old c4 and feels like a more modern version of a 72 Rs I was fortunate enough to drive a few years back. i think the only thing slowing its sale was the kilometres, but in 10 years time, is it really going to matter??? It will never command a premium, but it will still go up. I'm going to drive it enjoy it and keep it forever......well, at least 10 years anyway. Anyone interested in a 996 turbo??. I have posted an add in the marketplace. cheers. Loui.
