They are great - such fun to drive. Lovely in this cold damp weather too, as the back end steps out nice and progressively...

Don't yet know what I will spend the GT3 cash on...... Question

HOLD THE PHONE !....The white RS is scheduled for a run out on the RS
Oulton Park day, it's not hung up it's boots quite yet !. And Nick has not laid
up NXI20 yet either. Danny is still occasionally running his RS too...

...So in short, they are still being used ! Thumb

One GT4 is enough!

My GT3 had it's last track outing at Goodwood. Wish I'd got it to Spa last year...

Mine is still on sabbatical for track time this year, but it isn't retired. Still regularly used as a road car though - I could never bring myself to SORN it and leave it neglected in the garage. With the temperatures at last low enough for Sottozeros I will finally be putting the winters on next week (with so much camber on the car and such soft sidewalls, they are pretty much as bad in mild weather as Cups are in the cold).

Pics when you get the car please Nick!

Richyd - how come your GT4's so noisy, is exhaust OEM or something fruity? Sounds like you're bored of the GT3!


I sold my GT4 in December after circa 4.5k miles...so not everyone is going in that direction.

...should be at Silverstone in the morning (..or actually in about 8 hours!) so still going strong. I may even go hardcore and take an open cockpit car!

200 cell cats and a GT3 throttle body and plenum - best money ever spent, an extra 40 bhp, lots more torque, and a freer revving engine.

Other than that - standard exhaust.

Jens in Germany that did the work recons he's done 200 GT4's so far, with an order book going forward.....

Beauty of a 991S stock engine in detune format - Very tuneable for a NA engine.... Bandit

Just picking up this thread, which seems to have moved onto noise limits....

My GT4 is useless on UK tracks as it's too damn noisy! Black flagged at Goodwood and Brands. So, it's been out to Spa a few times instead!!

My 997.2 GT3 is fine noise-wise though.... drove it last week and my first impression was how quiet it is versus the GT4....


Ok, so that would be the 200 cell cats and GT3 throttle body I'm guessing then Grin

Nope! Black flagged before work was done on the car. Only tracked it at Spa since the mods......

I seem to have "over tracked" myself. So cant be blamed for not trying!!
Think we're just missing you Roro.. when is your next one?

Rich.. surprised you sold a GT3 clubbie for a GT4 but whatever you enjoy. I guess one feels quite a bit shinier out the box which is always nice Thumb

Freddie - I didn't sell one for the other. They really are different cars. I just sold the clubbie because I didn't have time to use it and it was sitting there doing nothing. Young family, too many toys, not enough time..... may as well move it on so someone else can enjoy it. That was my reasoning anyway...

When I drove it around to JZM on Sat morning, I had to pull over and have a coffee to think it through - It really was a very hard car to sell... but I feel I owe it to my family to de-clutter car-wise a little...

The GT3 will be missed!

Recon I will be buying a higher mileage one soon - so I can drive it without considering it's value. Owning a very low miles mint 997.2 clubbie, really did take the fun out of driving the car....

Nothing booked yet, I'm hopeful I'll be out on track sometime soon-ish, just lots of distractions at present...

Rich, judging by their Tweets today I see JZM have already sold your car

Yup - sold in less than a day, at a fairly uppy £120k....

Hope it's been bought to be used, not stored

Unlikely..

i reckon there's more to go on these things..im not, quite, that convinced to stick my own cash in at todays rates yet but they just don't hang around at all. 997's seem to move the quickest. Its that sweet spot of old enough tech modern enough looks.

Maybe..... but there's hope yet. Apparently JZM are fitting fixed buckets (mine had folding carbon buckets) and carbon brakes are replacing the steelers. So, sounds like it will be in track this summer......

Given the flat line in values over the last 12 months, I couldn't justify keeping it and not driving it..... time will tell eh, maybe I sold at the wrong time. But I had it for 2 years, drove 6k miles in it, hooned around Europe and got a few trackdays in, and sold for £7.5k more than I paid for it. Free motoring.

Maybe the manual 991.2 GT3 will effect values..... Question
