60,000 miles (so around 3,100 per year) is not high surly on a 19 year old car? What miles do you think it should have?

If you was buying a modified car having Manthey on it has to be one of the best? (and revisable if need be, no?)

Colour is a personal thing - I think it looks great Thumb

2003 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk2

PostPosted: Fri Nov 02, 2018 10:37 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

It's a stunning car.....Also, can't see the general negativity around cars that have been tracked.....Any GT3 owner that tracks their car ( well certainly all the ones I have ever met...) treat the car insanely well, most have the best of everything in terms of service and parts thrown at them, oil changes probably 3 or 4 times as regularly as recommended ( I do mine every thousand miles for example...) and when it's driven on the track, it' s not usually driven any harder than than on the road.

Generally I would say a track focused car is better looked after and probably healthier than a road car, that gets driven in the rain, salt, everyday ride.

A bit like a Super bike that has been tracked, it's what it was made for Thumb

The UK Porsche car market is a strange place, a 19 year old car with 60k mile is a leggy car. The good new is 996's are easy to clock Grin God knows what your going to do about the Halfords sorry Manthey mods though nooo


I guess Porsche made a ***** up of epic proportions when they bought Manthey and entrusted them with the running of their GT racing program?

I am also certain that you know far more about tuning Porsches than a team which has won the N24 more than 5 times against the best Audi, MB and BMW could throw at them...

Right...

Went to school with the guy selling this as it goes, he’s a good chap and I believe I’ve seen the car, as stated, it’s a proper track weapon.

Just the way I like them Smile

All 996 GT3s are wonderful - personally my love is greatest for clubsports as they are track cars. Most mods improve the platform. If one prefers then keep original parts for resale.

Someone asked earlier in the thread whether mk1s had overtaken mk2s yet in value. I suspect that bit of interweb prediction is not a given else it would have happened by now. As much as the mk1 has a nice backstory (the first, hand built, not sold in North Am, etc, etc), to balance that out the newer mk2s were a bit sharper, quicker, generally more cars in better condition due to younger age, and roughly similarly rare. I suspect the greater value will always be in a good colour and condition clubsport of either variant.
