I'd choose the GT3, but then I've wanted one ever since they were announced.

Does it get any better than a Club Sport MK2 GT3



Yes a Clubsport MK1 GT3. Wink

That Turbo is lovely but the wheels don't suit it without the rest of the gt2 parts fitted. Ride height doesn't help either.

GT3 a whole different ballgame. My choice every time. But it is 50% more, money wise.

Both lovely and I'm envious of both owners.

I'd plump for the GT3, my only quibble being a mate has one (996.2) in Guards already. But I wouldn't let it bother me for any longer than its taken me to write this post.

Is this some sort of 911uk competition by chance? Laughing

GT3 all the way but with so many clubsports active on track they all need some serious background checks for history and repairs, especially when modified and therefore not factory original: The rear wing is missing endplates, Nitrons, RS intake, cup steering wheel yet super perfect wheels and unknown seller. May well all pan out ok but never does any harm being comfortable before parting with so much money.

The car is very well known on Pistonheads/on here and a credit to its previous owner, who pedaled it very well at the Ring and Spa in years past. The Carbon Manthey wing, which the idiotic body shop left without the end plates was on the car before the shunt. The genuine Porsche Cup wheel was also fitted prior to the accident. The only real shame is that whoever did the work to put it back on the road has taken off the Gold BBS LMs and swapped them over for the boring 996.2 wheels. Could be an attempt to hide the identity of the car?

As for the actual damage - I was bidding on this car until it reached £35k. It sold for £39k. Porsche had quoted some crazy number to fix it, hence the insurance payout. As a matter of fact, the damage could be classified as almost superficial. New bumpers, new lights and a few other things. I came away with £20k repair estimate, Porsche quoted almost three times.

It is sad that the current seller has decided not to divulge the past. However, I have seen much worse 997s put back on the road. Given how good this car was prior to the shunt, I don't think over the long term it was such a bad buy (provided it was properly repaired).
