We are excited to offer on behalf of one of our clients this outstanding 2004 Porsche 996 GT3.
For many years, 2shores has been offering selected, finest grade examples of collectible automobiles. This one owner 996 GT3 is one of those examples!
The “GT3” nameplate was introduced in 1999 as part of the first generation of the Porsche 996 model range commonly known as 996.1. as a homologation model for the cars entered in the FIA GT3 cup. As with Porsche’s previous 911 RS models, the 996 GT3 was focused on racing, and so was devoid of items that added unnecessary weight to the car. Sound deadening was almost completely removed, as were the rear seats, rear loud speakers, sunroof, and air conditioning, although automatic air conditioning and CD/radio became no-cost optional add-ons.
Porsche made significant updates to the GT3 for 2004 model year (the first year the car was offered to US customers), using the 2002 996 facelift including headlights that were differentiated from the entry-level Boxster. This model is commonly known as the 996.2 GT3. Engine power output rating was raised to 381 PS (280 kW) and torque to 284 lb?ft (385 Nm), 80% of which was available from 2,000 rpm. The braking setup was upgraded, now featuring 6-piston calipers on the front (rears remained 4-piston), and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system was offered as an option. The GT3 now used the body shell of the Carrera 4.
In track testing by American automotive journals, the GT3 managed a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) acceleration time of 4.5 seconds and a quarter mile time of 12.0 seconds at 118 mph (190 km/h). During skid pad testing, the GT3 posted 1.03g.
Porsche’s official test-driver Walter Röhrl completed the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the 996 GT3 in 7 minutes 56 seconds, a feat which was used by Porsche to promote the car.
Our car on offer is a 2004 German delivery and the car has enjoyed a one owner history with no track or race events ever. Finished in black metallic over black interior, this car looks fantastic. With only 21k miles from new, this is a very interesting collector car. A recent professional German appraisal attests the cars flawless visual and mechanical condition.
The 996 GT3 is considered by many to be the last “real” analog Porsche and prices are creeping up constantly. This is a rare chance for a low mile, one owner, never raced GT3 in timeless black on black configuration.
