I wonder if this is the same car? Was on several FB groups in January?

The pre accident images show a lovely looking car thanks to Marky911 for the detective work. 👍

That would seem the obvious route, you’d need a NB C4 she’ll, not super easy to get?

Then there the time constraints of getting all the parts off the donor according to Mikes info earlier.

All said would have to be cheap the warrant the hassle factor.

Douglas valley are 2 miles from me and have plenty of scrap 996's that have been broken because of blown engines.
Body panels are some of the cheapest parts available s/h for these cars.

GT3 shell has specific panels in/around the engine bay.

For e.g. the parcel shelf and bulkhead to accommodate the oil tank, and the rear-most horizontal panel which the engine mounts too.

Nothing beyond the reach of a determined man with a spot-weld cutter and a sunny outlook on life, but it's not the case that the GT3 shell is 100% a C4.

It isn't a full reshell job. Take the GT3 specific bits and fit to a C4 with a couple of modifed panels and new front uprights. Nice little project.

If a man has a large enough hammer and a warm garage, there are of course no problems, merely opportunities for percussive entertainment.

Why do think I have just bought a 996.2 GT3 engine and 997.2 GT3 gearbox Question
If somebody else does it first I can copy.

Yep, if you could have it all done for low £30k’s it would be a cheap GT3.

Having said that you can get a nicely repaired cat D car for 40 odd K and that’s still useable on the roads.

If someone like Rich can make it road usable due to importing it into Germany and repairing it, then that would really make it worth doing. Especially as it’ll be a project for someone who enjoys that type of work and who has the ability, hence keeping costs right down.

If he ended up with a £35k low mileage GT3 that he could also fiddle with as it’s history would allow him to not be so precious with it, then that would be a great result.
Once sorted it would last a lifetime too, given that the mechanicals haven’t even covered 20k miles yet.

What’s that project then? Didn’t think gearing was much different 996 to 997? .2 RS excluded, which is perfect ratios IMHO.

Plan is to rebuild the engine to 4l (it needs a rebuild) put the engine and gearbox in a C4S with 2wd, GT3 suspension, and uprated brakes to create a 996 GT3 touring. Or in this case a GT4S.
Gearbox was chosen because it was available, and is regarded by some as having about the nicest shift of the available GT3 gearboxes. I have engine, gearbox, and exhaust. Just need a suitable C4S and to get my current project on the road. So don't hold your breath!
