Hi all

Could someone tell me what body type each 997 GT3 has. I know the 997.1 GT3 uses the narrow body and the RS uses the wide body but what about the 997.2, is it the same?

Sorry for the basic question but I just couldn't find the info.

Thanks

Trev

The funny thing about the GT3 is that they are built using the C4 floorpan and then they add the narrow rear wings for the non-RS model.

Don’t quote me, but I read somewhere that the 997.1 GT3 uses the C4 chassis, but the 997.2 GT3 doesn’t. This is why the 997.1 GT3 can be modded to fit rear seats but the 997.2 can’t Question

Yep - that is also my understanding. Thumb IIRC the 997.2 (both narrow and wide) are slightly different in that they only have a single skin floor in the back and consequently cannot be retrofitted with rear seats (even the comforts without the cage). Front of the shell still the C4 structure for rigidity I believe though, as with all of the earlier GT3s.

I don’t think the 997.2 GT3 will take a roof rack either as it lacks the RTS attachment points.

I can confirm that is correct; anybody in the market for some OEM bars and bike rack? Previously used occasionally on a Carrera S and now gathering dust Sad Thread Hijack
