Hi guys,

Just sold my 993 turbo and looking to get something more track orientated. I've seen a LHD GT3 at Charles Ivey in London. Can anyone give me any info about this car?

Thanks.

2000 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk1

No idea about the history of that specific car, but judging by the photos, it's a late Comfort model with the electric bonnet and boot release and should have the alcantara headlining. Imho it's a good price if the car is clean and has been serviced regularly. It is a lot of car for the money. Might be worth a look!

Must admit I was nearly tempted to go and look at that one, but don't think I can live with LHD on a daily driver - it would be good for track use though...

Is that a big discount on a RHD car?

This is my first foray into 996s. Do they the have the vehicle data sticker inside the bonnet lid?

What tyres were standard issue on the Mk1? make and size

Anyone had any dealing with Charles Ivey? I'm sure they're reputable but any 1st hand knowledge would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes, the car should have a bonnet sticker on the underside.

Standard tyres/wheels were:

front: 225/40-18 on 8Jx18 Sport Designs
rear: 285/30-18 on 10Jx18 Sport Designs

Original tyres supplied were either the Bridgestone SO2-A (still available) or P-Zero Assimetricos (no longer available).

Charles Ivey have been around eons in the Porsche business. Charles Ivey himself was an ex-Porsche racer IIRC.

Any major issues with the Mk1?

Do they suffer from the RMS problem that I see mentioned or does that not affect the GT3?

I know the GT3 engine is derived from a different engine block but does it still have VarioCam?

Don you've just got a thing about driving fast things from that left seat, Wink
sounds good value if it checks out, thought about 964 RS there about that sort of money and a great track day car.

When I was looking at a GT3 the rms issue did not seem to be a problem because it did not use the same block as the basic 996, beleave it is the same block that was in your turbo. Total 911 & GT Porshe have in the past done a few features on the mk 1 and they still have back issues.

No major issues with the Mk1. In fact, there have been no major issues with any GT3 to date.

The GT3 is based on the GT1 block (same as TT). It does not suffer the same kind of RMS issues as regular 996s. Mind you, ANY engine with oil inside that runs at high compression can suffer an oil leak! Confused

The GT3 has Variocam - it is 2 stage on the Mk1, whereas it is stepless on the Mk2. The Mk2 witnesses the introduction of e-Gas (fly-by-wire throttle). The stepless Variocam is one of the key reasons the Mk2 has a slightly stronger engine throughout the rev-range.

But in tuned form, the Mk1 and Mk2 engines are capable of producing very similar numbers.

The merits of the Mk1 and Mk2 have been discussed at length before - it might be worth doing a quick search. Smile

Thanks chaps.

Yes I do seem to be happier in the left seat Wink

I'm not looking at Mk2s as they are out of budget.

Will go and have a look at that Mk1 soon.

I have been looking outside the Porsche stable too Embarassed
, primarily at Lotus Exiges and Caterhams. I've driven an Exige but not the Caterham (that'll be happening this week too). Not sure about driving a Caterham to the 'Ring though!

Nice looking car and LHD is not an issue IMHO for everyday use.

I've never had a problem with LHD. It's actually better on a 993 IMHO but don't suppose the same applies to 996s.

It's not going to be a daily drive either.
