We have been advised that this this 996 GT3 Reg LX53NRN has been subject to a repair and insurance payout.

BUYER BEWARE - GT3 due diligence required

Car was damaged at the Nurburgring due to a crash in the Summer 2016, a complete Insurance Payout has been made on the car following this significant event.

2004 Porsche 911 GT3
Registration LX53NRN

Should be priced as having accident repair following such an incident.

Question PC

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

£70K for a 996 GT3?

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.
