    GT3-Redux-glad to be back!

    Well I bought my first GT3 on June 11, 2003. Picked up at the factory and after a week of tooling around in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with it I shipped it home. It was the 2nd US GT3 delivered and I got it in the States when all the original cars were released(there was a computer screwup with the first bunch of cars and they were held at the port for a few weeks). I put 19,000 miles on it in 16 months and sold it to replace it with a Stradale.
    I loved the CS. It was striking, great performer, loud (very very loud) and absolutely gorgeous. I never quite felt like I could toss it around like the GT3.
    Well, after almost three years with the CS, I sold it and bought another 996 GT3.
    The "new" car is a 6500 mile example that has so many options I really never even considered ordering with my original car. I really didn't care that much if it had carbon fiber this or that as long as he went like hell. This "new" GT3 is in showroom condition and I expect to use it as a daily driver.
    I will post a picture when I get it-it's being shipped from California.
    The Strad was nice but it's nice coming back to the GT3.

    Wow Lon, looking forward to seeing the pics!
    Any info on the colors?

    Nice to be back hey... 996 GT3's an awesome car!

    Just wondering...Why not upgrade to 997 GT3? If you can afford a CS it shouldnt be a problem...


    Re: GT3-Redux-glad to be back!

    ...btw, 997 version is better across all boards IMO. Better sounding too. The 996 (MKII) is not that bad as a daily driver as you will know, but the newer one is better in that department too...
    Just my thoughts

    Re: GT3-Redux-glad to be back!

    I considered the 997 GT3 and I will probably go for it after I have some time back in the 996. BTW- with the Strad, I owned it for almost three years and basically sold it for what I paid.It seems that the 997 prices are a little too escalated right now. I think they are headed for a fall, especially in the winter with this market.
