It'd be interesting to check the build spec on it at an OPC - why would anyone specify CS Nomex seats and no aircon, yet put in a centre console? Surely a CS would make more sense? If it *is* a CS why has the cage been taken out of the back?

Doesn't make sense to me Confused

it's doesnt look like a club sport i.e. the rear cage is silver not black, silver indicates it was a dealer fit.....

and the seats are an easy retro if as well......but as spotted by Philip the centre consol delete was standard fit on the CS

and unless the floor mats have been changed, the tell tale holes for the fire extinguisher and CS roll cage are not there......

Also noted the mats are 997 type with the PORSCHE running top to bottom, not side to side?

For anyone interested in buying it - get the chassis number (if they won't provide you that then smell a rat straight sway!) and ask the parts department of your local OPC to tell you the options specified.

In my experience, most times things have been changed which make no sense (why fit nomex when you can have leather for the same cost?) there's been accident damage and the cheapest / easily available parts go on.

Just my happeneth Smile

Um - a couple Wink

I owned a Mk.1 in 2001, a Mk.2 in 2003 and then a GT2 in 2004 before buying a GT3 again earlier this year - looked at around eight or nine cars before buying mine - the only one that hadn't been painted / shunted or the best one "yeah, I didn the Gumball in it but I wasn't pushing it..." Surprised

I've owned several 996 Cup cars and still have my 2005 car - the last UK car and the only one of the three 2005 cars not to have been totalled during racing Rolling Eyes
- in fact she never had a bump - apart from a tyre to tyre nudge which pushed her into the gravel.

I'm a BIG fan of the 996 - I've owned several 993's (the wife loved her two) and believe the 996 got a hard rap when it was the current model.

For me - the GT3 is one of the finest cars made - just my opinion.

When I was contemplating buying a 996 c2 earlier this summer I found this garage. The showroom on the website is actually not there but it's an empty unit, also each time I called to view the car they would not call me back to arrange a time. Confused

The GT2 was, erm - mad? Surprised Wink

On road the wide track made it difficult to hussle down the lanes where I live - and it was just toooooo fast for motorway use - forever getting the 'bing' as I hit the speed limiter thingymagig.

On track, the Turbos were a pain - and with that big fat arse, if you lost the back end it became very, very lary - and then the Turbos reminded you they were there.

Awesome fun - but for just tonking around where I live, a 3 is infinitely more refined and useable. A real precision driving tool.

I sold her to a great guy locally who used her for trackdays - used to see her at Paddock Club days - lovely car Smile

Biggest mistake I ever made in it? I'm at Silverstone with Tim Sugden; "Tim, I'm not convinced the set up is right on the GT2 - could you see what you think?" - "Sure, jump in..."

They had to pull my fingernails out from the dash top! Surprised Surprised Surprised Wink Smile
