Commonly regarded among the greatest Porsches of all time, the 996 GT3 was the first of its kind and the most powerful naturally aspirated 911 ever at its debut, designed to meet FIA homologation requirements for racing. This 2004 example features Cup-style modifications as well as a FabSpeed exhaust system, carbon fiber roof, full roll cage, new Bilstein RS suspension, Recaro race seats, and much more. This GT3 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York showing approximately 27k miles on the odometer.
This GT3 was factory finished in Midnight Blue Metallic and the seller states it has since been repainted. Modifications include an RS-style front bumper, a 911 Turbo/C4S rear bumper, wider rear fenders, and Cup-style accessories including a carbon fiber roof panel and rear spoiler. A set of Carrera III wheels have been mounted with Bridgestone Potenza tires. The seller notes this GT3 has attended Porsche Club of America Driver Education and autocross events, and that minor signs of road wear are present. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The black leather interior is appointed with Recaro bucket seats and red safety harnesses. An aftermarket shifter and full roll cage have also been installed along with the deletion of rear components to achieve weight savings. Optional factory equipment includes aluminum instrument dials, a thicker steering wheel, and air conditioning with full climate control.
This GT3 derives up to 380 HP and 284 lb.-ft of torque from a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six Mezger engine. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Compared to the original 996 GT3, the updated version utilizes the bodyshell of the Carrera 4 and features upgraded 6-piston front brakes. The seller states this example has been race-tuned and has received a new oil cooler and Bilstein RS suspension. Detailed records are provided in the gallery, and the CARFAX report shows 18 service records since 2004.
This sale will include a clean title.
