Description

The Porsche 911 GT3 is a high performance version of the Porsche 911 sports car primarily intended for racing. It is a line of high-performance models, which began with the 1973 911 Carrera RS. The GT3 is named after the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Group GT3 class in which it was designed to compete. A number of variations, designed for road and track duty, have been introduced since its launch in 1999. More than 14,000 911 GT3 cars have been produced.

The GT3 has had a successful racing career in the one-make national Porsche Carrera Cup series, and the international Porsche Supercup. It has won championship and endurance races, including the GT class of the American Le Mans Series seven times, first overall in the 24 Hours of Daytona, and first overall at the 24 Hours Nürburgring six times.

In track testing by American automotive journals, the GT3 managed a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a quarter mile time of 12.0 seconds at 118 miles per hour. During skidpad testing the vehicle posted 1.03g.

Porsche’s official test-driver Walter Röhrl completed the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the 996 GT3 in 7 minutes 56 seconds, a feat which was used by Porsche to promote the car.

This lovely LHD Club Sport example is presented in Arctic silver and has been subject to tasteful upgrades with Gemballa; including modifications to the engine which now produces 421bhp which can be seen on a dynograph reading in the history file. Supplied with the Porsche Ceramic Brake option (PCCB), black nomex seats embroidered with Porsche crests and is currently showing 44,000km. This is an exhilarating car that is very sought after and with blistering performance to match both on and off the track.
