2003 Porsche 911 GT3 3.6

Summary:

Absolutely amazing

Faults:

The only fault with the car is that it has a small battery to make the car lighter and this battery does not last long without it being charged. Other than that though it is very reliable.

General Comments:

The car is a pure super car, there are no luxury accessories, only air conditioning and a radio. The regular Porsche seats are replaced with Porsche bucket seats and a roll cage is also factory fitted. The car sticks to the road like no one would believe and is just so fast. 0-60 is in 4.3 seconds and the car will do 8000rpm! It is crazy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Good write up. Having recently driven a friend's Porsche GT3 (an even quicker 2007, 997 model no less), I can identify with comments about how crazy it is compared to a "base" 911. Sure, there is also the 911 Turbo, but somehow the Turbo does not convey the sheer excitement (sound, handling, agility, sense of speed) that the N/A GT3 does.

The only problem ironically for the GT3 is that perhaps it is a little too quick for road use. A standard 911 will probably be more practical for day to day use. But if you're after a car for the track, then look no further.

I've also been lucky enough to drive the latest model, and I can summarise it in one word. Addictive.

The noise in particular should be bottled and sold as an antidote to depression. It's just fabulous.

A very raw car though which may prove tiring for road use. I agree with the comment above - it's really a track tool first and foremost. However, I reckon I could force myself to live with it as a commuter. ;-)
