Marketed between 2004 and 2013, the Porsche 997 was introduced by Porsche as the successor of the much maligned 996. The complaints about the revised ‘fried egg’ headlamps on the previous model were addressed by reverting to a more traditional oval design, along with a multitude of mechanical upgrades and a wide array of configurations, from the powerful ‘Turbo S’ to the track-focused ‘RS’ variants, each with a particular focus on the driving experience.

While rooted in the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS, the GT3 denomination started with the 996-generation 911. Focused on racing and performance, the GT3 was stripped out of all unnecessary weight and tuned for handling and power output. The transition to the 997 base brought about more power and a myriad of refinements, such as dynamic engine mounts, Torque Vectoring, and a ‘chrono package’ as a tribute to the dash-mounted clocks of yesteryear.

This ‘first generation’ 997.1 is finished in an attractive Arctic Silver with orange accents, and has covered just under 30,000 kilometres from new. A true driver-focused car, it still features a manual transmission and none of the problematic IMS bearing issue found in most 996/997 models.
