2000 Porsche 996 GT3
The first Porsche that bore the “GT3” nametag was introduced in 1999 as part of the 996 model range.
It was a road car focused on racing and named after the FIA GT3 Class, for which it was designed to race in. It was a lightweight car with items that added extra weight removed, such as rear seats, rear speakers, sunroof, radio and air conditioner, although all South African cars were specked with air conditioner and a radio. There was almost no sound deadening in the car in a further attempt to lose weight. The engine was the famous “Mezger” engine designed by Hans Mezger. The 3,6 L flat six boxer engine developed 265 kW or 360 hp. The car weighed only 1350kg. Top speed was 302km/h and zero to 100 took only 4,8 seconds!
This specific car is a 2000 model and has done only 22500kms from new with a full service history from Porsche SA. This car is arguably the lowest mileage MK1 GT3 in the world and drives like a brand new car. Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic with black all leather interior it is without a mark, absolutely pristine!
I have personally had the privilege of driving many GT3 cars in my life from the 996 MK1 right up to the latest models and I can honestly say that this is the best GT3 I have ever driven. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this special car!
