    How about a 997 GT3 Turbo

    My understanding is a gt2 cost more than the gt3. Due to the gt3 platform (track use) wouldn't it make more sense to buy a gt3 and turbo charge it? However what I don't like about it is that it looks like the 997 with a Aero kit

    Future Porsche purchase at stake here


    Re: How about a 997 GT3 Turbo

    ...You think a GT2 is NOT a track car?:) furthermore, the GT3 is a superb vehicle no doubt, but what u would end up with is a GT2 with lots of extra unnecessarily expensive parts (titanium conrods not necessary on a lower revving Turbo engine etc). Also, usually the GT3 parts are in fact part of an aero kit, the mk 1 gt3 was...

    Atmospheric engines make for sportier engine characteristics more fit for track and sport driving "pleasure". Therefore the "GT3" will always be atmospheric, just like the Carrera GT was made atmospheric (and Enzo, and McLaren, and Zonda, etc).

    For those that want more power instead, there is the GT2, which gets more power from the turbos but adds weight and looses the power delivery and revability of the atmospheric engine.

    Would CGT seats like those in the picture fit in a 997 ?

    Re: How about a 997 GT3 Turbo

    It used to be no problem in the type 996 carrera to put the GT3 seats but the problem in the 997 is that 997carrera seats have trunk airbags incorporated in its sides, and these one-piece GT3 buckets don't. They would probably fit but you will have to do with those airbags and any posible electronic diagnostics erros or problems

    The GT2 platform is for track use too. I don't know why we keep getting this question. A turbocharged GT3 IS a GT2. The GT2 is a complete track car just like a GT3, they just did everything needed to make it handle the power.

    They will be available as an option for all 997 models as far as I heard. Starting with MY 2007 if I'm not wrong. They're not quite the same in design but pretty close.
