Renaissance Classic Sports Cars are pleased to offer our customers this low mileage example of the highly celebrated Porsche GT3 Gen 2 Clubsport.
Originally designed by Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche, the German engineered rear engine Porsche 911 is now one of the longest standing production models in the Automotive world. Starting production in 1963, this sports coupe has been through constant development over the years, from road cars to series winning race cars, while still managing to stay true to the initial concept and design cues. With now over 1m versions of this car being produced since its launch, it is no wonder that the Porsche 911 is so renowned with car enthusiasts and the general public alike.
The 996 is actually Porsche’s 5th generation design of the infamous series and was launched in 1998. This variation actually had very little in common with its predecessor, the car came with an entirely new chassis platform and was the first 911 to be powered by a water-cooled engine, two things that made it a complete break away from the original design. These changes allowed Porsche to create a sleeker body design, develop higher performance engines and generate better overall levels of refinement that would pave the way for future designs by the company.
The “GT3” model designation was first introduced in 1999 as part of the 996 range. The focus of the model was to be racing and performance! As standard it would be completely devoid of items that were deemed unnecessary in order to reduce the vehicle’s overall weight, this included the removal of sound-proofing, rear seats, sunroofs, speakers and even Air-conditioning! Although Porsche would allow a CD/Stereo and air-condition to be added as additional equipment if required. The GT3 would also benefit from an increase in power, bigger brakes, improved suspension, lightweight wheels and an aero package – all with the aim of improving the vehicle’s performance on the circuit and road. All of which made the GT3 an incredibly desirable car within the Porsche range
This particular, sought after, GT3 is a pristine example of the later generation car with the “Clubsport” package. This means that it is fitted with higher power output engine (376bhp & 284lbft of torque) and all of the performance orientated options designed to appeal to those who wanted a more focused driving experience. These Clubsport items included; a roll cage, single mass flywheel and drivers racing harness. These items not only add to the value and capabilities of the vehicle but also add more theatre and excitement to each drive!
The vehicle’s specification includes:
• 3.6 Flat 6 twin cam water-cooled engine (376hp & 284lbft)
• 6 Speed Manual transmission
• Limited slip differential
• 18” lightweight alloy wheels
• 6pot front & 4pot rear brake calipers
