In his comments below he says that the Aerokit came before the GT3. Is this true? I always assumed it was designed for the GT3 and then offered as an option for regular 996s. Were Sport Design wheels also offered before the GT3?
Yes totally true, my old car/Jethros car was built a year before the GT3 was launched and came from Porsche with the kit on it. My C4 left Porsche three months before the GT3 was launched and again had an aero kit and "GT3" wheels when it left the factory.
The Mk1 GT3 kit, wheels etc. were basically the optional bits you could spec on your Carrera as the Aero Kit but fitted as standard. So yes the GT3 ripped off the narrow body carrera Aero kit
Well blow me over with a feather - I didn't know that. Thanks for the clarification.
All those people with GT3s should in fact be changing their rear badges for "Carrera" ones...not the other way round _________________ Currently Porsche-less, Ariel Atom 3 310

I love that video. Always makes me want to go out for a proper drive! Then I remember that I live in the thames valley, with crowded over-policed goat-tracks for roads... _________________ "911- the guilt-free supercar"
