Couldn’t agree more Edgy.... My 3.2 Carrera put a smile on my face every time I got in it, (& I get the whole classic,  & ac vs wc thing) but for similar money these days, the GT3 is in another league.  

And whilst I like a broad range of cars and makes (not just Pcars) when a mate pays $165K for a Torana, Vs what the GT3’s are currently going for (circa $150K) I’m left scratching my head?! 

Whilst I'm obviously biased, not a lot of cars @150k that can give the type and level of drive that a 14+ year old GT3 can. They are highly underrated cars.

Who says you're biased?

Says a guy who owns a 996 GT3. Hopefully I don't break the internet!

It’s the lad who sat at the back of the class in high school. His dad owns a concrete business.

You can’t drive a GT3 with rubber boots on - it’s balancing things out.

Luck boy having the Adelaide hills available, some of the best driving roads in the country 

I was on holiday in the Adelaide Hills last year, sitting at the top of Mt Lofty one fine evening, enjoying the sunset and the sound of P-cars reverberating around the valleys below. It's special driving, for sure.

 That was probably us ?

^^^ nice buy Rick. The previous owner was parked next to me at the PCSA show and shine a couple of years ago and it looked like a well kept example. I miss my GT3.

 So have I made the right decision to keep mine and NOT buy a cup?

Why not have both ? :D I'm kidding myself imagining that I'd be using the GT3 much anyway with two kids under two, so I may as well have the garage ornament that costs less! No question, nothing like cup car on track...good drugs.

Some really nice 996 GT3 (Mk2s) currently hitting the market , following appears to be a low KM really nice Clubsport at @ $147K (which 18 months ago would have sold in a week?)

https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-2004/SSE-AD-5598951/?Cr=0

2004 Porsche 911 GT3 996 Manual MY04

 

Not this car, e.g. this red GT3 is a Touring and the clip car is a Clubsport _ BTW I met the owner at a Vic C&C, really nice/knowable car guy that bought the car from Rob @ RSR Garage (notice the picture location near the Yarra and the sticker in the Qtr window) some years ago and has used it infrequently since. Super clean/nice GT3.

I see this one has disappeared from Carsales in the last week..... any PFA'er laying claim to it, or know if it sold?

  Expensive accessories these pet humans ? Not that I have any that I know of 

 I expect at the very least something like an Audi RS3 as your new daily now that the Yankee thing is gone ?

^^^ the red one is gone? Really surprised the silver CS is still there. Bloody sharp price.

The Silver CS ad now says "deposit taken".

Its been a week since I bought the blue one & I'm absolutely loving it......except bloody work keeps getting in the way of me taking it out for another squirt.  Red one gone, black one gone & silver one under offer.  Glad I got in when I did!

  Good plan mate. Glad you're keeping the Cup ? And I drive a van everyday, so I know what boring is!

I was searching for the right 993C2M after letting my 964C2M go but couldn't find the right car.

Went sideways and bought a GT3 and haven't regretted a moment. Its just enough comfort with a real analog experience which keeps you honest as a driver. It may as well be a cup for its practicality and I don't get to drive it as often as I'd like.

Still haven't got round to installing Spillers RS wheel! An RS3 would be a rapid daily but I can see the appeal of something lumbering and couch like. There were only two Seal Grey GT36.2 sold. I wonder if the other one is still out there, I think I saw it at Rennsport a few years ago.

Was it a 964 Targa? The guy I bought this off regretted it and bought a grey Targa to replace it...wonder if that was the same car?

Not the same car, was a 996 Targa....... a 964 will do nicely though!

Lifted the following from a UK WEB site: thought the info may be interesting to other 996 GT3 owners.

Greetings,

Found these in the FIA Historic Database:
