The 996 GT3 track focused model was introduced in 1999 and ran until 2005. The engine very much set it apart from most Porsche 996 models, although it shared the same basic design of the standard so-called "integrated dry sump" flat-six engine. The naturally aspirated engine was based on the unit used in the Porsche 962 and 911 GT1 race cars. The engine uses the versatile dry-sump crankcase with an external oil reservoir and remained naturally aspirated. The GT3 manages a 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and a quarter mile time of 12.0 seconds at 118 miles per hour!

As a no cost but rarely acquired option, Porsche offered the 'Clubsport' package. This useful option replaced the standard electrically adjustable leather front seats with manually adjustable racing bucket style seats that were finished in fire-retardant fabric. Also added was a single mass flywheel, bolt-in half-roll cage, 6-point drivers racing harness that replaced the heavy standard air bags, a fire extinguisher mounted within the front passenger foot well and plumbing for a battery master switch.

Significant updates were made to the GT3 for the 2004 version, that is commonly known as the 996.2 GT3.  The horsepower was raised to 375 bhp and torque to 284 lb·ft (385 N·m), 80% of which was available from 2,000 rpm. The brake system was upgraded and now featured 6-piston calipers on the front with rears remaining a 4-piston set up. Ceramic brakes were then offered as an additional cost option.

This example was purchased from its first owner by a Porsche Club member and then sent to Porsche Colchester for an inspection. Almost everything that needed addressing was looked at, fixed or replaced.  After some enjoyment, he decided to sell it due to retirement and the need to downsize his collection, with the exception of his prized 356 that he kept to use with his wife. Purchased in 2016, this GT3 joined a local collection and has been used sparingly since, with little over a 1000 miles being added to the odometer. Despite this limited use, it has been serviced without concern of the cost.

This superb GT3 is thrilling, raw and one of the best Porsche cars available for the money. It comes with factory books, tools and spare key.
