2000 996.1 PORSCHE 996 GT3
Leather Buckets & Carbon
Biblical Service History
52000 Miles

The Original GT3
The first and arguably the best of the GT3 brand, the iconic Mezger engined manual
gearbox analogue car remains the same sensation now as it did 22 years ago, only
driving today it feels very special. It’s very sharp and hands on, though equally
smooth and precise, and the closest thing you will get to running your hand over
the surface of the road, the car communicating every detail that the chassis absorbs,
keepng little to guesswork, and this is where the later models start to become
gradually diluted. It can be argued that the first generation car is high on the
list of all time great Porsches, and curiously its also the rarest of all GT3 models.

Original matching numbers car with no flags in the history and not one that I can
determine has been tracked.
Aside an expensive complete sports exhaust system the remainder of the car is in
stock condition.
For me this is the ideal spec with the best looking seats, proper red seat belts,
no annoying roll cages or harnesses etc.
Finished in classic Artic silver, the coachwork is beautiful with depth and clarity
to the panels. Virtually no cosmetic shortcomings. All glasses and lenses, rubbers
etc are in superb condition. The engine bay is super clean and the front load area
is pristine with spare and tools, compressor etc.

The interior feels sharp and unused despite its years, the seats are the essential
lightweight leather crested buckets, the carbon dash, gear lever and handbrake cover
lends well to the cars look.

The split rims are perfect, shod with Michelin N4 rated Pilot Sport tyres which have
all been replaced in the last few hundred miles. .
The brakes are in fine condition as are all the suspension components as is the
underside of the car. The suspension and running gear has been been checked of
late by main dealer with no flags.

Service History
The service history is massive. It spans 2 bespoke suede folders with bronze
plaques detailing chassis number.

The last major service was carried out at Porsche centre Tonbridge in April
2021. It was an in depth service and checkover paying attention to all
suspension, running gear and rubber mounts. The service included a gearbox
oil and filter change, a spark plug change, brake fluid change, fuel filter,
poly rib belt, and new wiper blades.
Distance covered since is around 1500 miles, its due a service soon which will
be a minor and are not expecting any surprises with the health check given the
completenesss undertaken last time around.

Some other bigger jobs that have been completed in the last few years and 10000
miles are below.

- Coil packs all changed
- New front and rear suspension control arms
- Complete Predator Sports exhaust system from Design 911
- New water pump drive belt and fixings
- New coolant header tank switch and fixings

The rear shock absorbers were replaced by Porsche at 20000 miles

The owner’s wallet is compete with drivers handbook and service booklet
containing all the service stamps as pictured. I have both keys and a tracker
is fitted.

Sum Up
This GT3 is in fine mechanical and cosmetic condition with a sensible mileage,
step in and use condition and a super service portfolio.
