FOR SALE: 2004 911 GT3

Posted by MARKETING PATRICK MOTORSPORTS on

This vehicle is now SOLD

2004 Porsche 911 GT3, Basalt Black Metallic with only 25k miles.  1 of 1018, 996.2 GT3s for the US market, and 1 of 11 Basalt Black Metallic vehicles. This is the perfect opportunity to own a key vehicle in the Porsche lineage. 

 

The 996 GT3 utilizes the famed Metzger engine architecture developed by Porsche for use at Le Mans in their legendary GT1.  The GT3 engine is a very special unit featuring 4 valve heads, titanium connecting rods, dry sump lubrication and a lightweight clutch package. This motorsport derived powerplant does not suffer the IMS bearing or cylinder bore scoring issues found on the standard 996 C2 and C4 platform.

While the engine in the 996 GT3 offers many talking points, the chassis also offers a superb foundation for this modern classic.  As the 1st ground up redesign of the 911, the 996 chassis moved the game on significantly from the 993, stiffness increased by 45%  while simultaneously weight was reduced by 110 lbs.  While the 996 GT3 is driven by the rear wheels alone, these GT3s were built on the slightly more robust 996 C4 chassis to further rigidity and handling precision.  The standard C4 chassis were plucked from the assembly lines in Stuttgart and transferred to Porsche's Development Center in Weissach for full seem welding.  Handling on the 996 GT3 is exceptionally precise, taut and controlled.  Skidpad performance is impressive even by current numbers at 1.03g.  

A few more details on this particular example:

-Front clip of the vehicle is covered in Xpel clear bra, this includes hood, front bumper, lower valance and front fenders. 

- Pirelli Rosso Corsa rear tires freshly fitted as part of this vehicles sale preparation.

- Known use limited to public roads

- Service records dating from 2013. 

- Serviced prior to sale, vehicle is 100% prepped and ready for enjoyment.

- Recent paint detail and sealant

- PCCB Brake option

 As the first GT department vehicle from Porsche, the 996 GT3 stands as a modern classic.  With volume significantly lower than any subsequent era of the GT3, this low mileage example offers an exceptional driving experience and economically stable ownership proposition. 

Given its lack of driver aids and smaller, more air cooled proportions, you'll be hard pressed to find a more analog yet technically competent and truly usable machine.  

In our estimation, the quality and character of the Mezger engine, superb chassis, and a few creature comforts combine to make the 996 GT3 a veritable modern classic.  Available for immediate viewing , Patrick Motorsports is located within walking distance of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.  Please call or email for further detail.
