    Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    Hi guys,

    Wondering if any of you can help narrow down the number of MK1 GT3 CS were actually produced? Of which, how many are RHD vs LHD?

    Found one thread online with some numbers, but not sure how accurate or credible the source is. Also read that apparently there was pre-updated and post updated MK1 CS which includes steel synchros instead of brass, alcantara headlinder, electronic engine lid and bonnet release etc.? Once again, don't know who accurate or true this is either

    Any assistance would be hugely appreciated Smiley


    Re: Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    Can’t help you on the number, but agree the mk.1 CS is a gem, I’d love to have one on the side as a ‘classic’. They’re incredible value compared to the aircooled generations.

    Re: Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    I couldn't agree more Frank. I was lucky to acquire one last year in RHD. I think they numbers are super low, just curious what the most accurate figure would be. At the moment it's still quite vague from the bit of information I was able to obtain. I know that USA never even got the MK1 GT3 in totality, let alone in CS form.

    Pistonheads:

    "Probably old news on here, but new to me.. smile

    Just found this site ( http://www.titanic.co.uk/GT3/GT32e.htm ) which gives an accurate (?) number of the MK1 996 gt3 UK cars, colour, Comfort or CS etc. 

    106 cars. Only 28 MK1 ClubSports! As far as cars+investments go - that's got to be tipped as a good gamble surely??"

    Rennlist:

    "Most of this comes from the GT3 buying guide in GT Porsche Feb 2007

    1858 Mk1 built total

    Of those 308 in right hand drive of which 106 went to the UK and the rest to South Africa and Japan primarily - I have a figure of 52 in my head for SA, but I can't remember where that comes from.

    28 of the UK (RHD) were CS versions (GTPorsche), 7 of the SA one's were CS (1 Zambezi Red, 2 Red, 2 Yellow, 1 White, 1 Basalt) - of these 3 have been scrapped already (1 Zambezi Red, 1 Red and 1 Black as I understand)

    I would guess the statistics are roughly similar CS - regular for the LHD versions.

    49 CS in Right hand drive in total is the number I have, but again - source is dodgy."


    Re: Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    Absolutely with you on that one. On top of that the CS was like a mini-RS back then with a single mass flywheel if I’m not mistaken?

    I’ve been following an unmolested silver one in France but it’s still a bit too early for me. I’m sure values will soar at some point, will have to hurry. :)

    Re: Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    Yes, the unique features on CS to regular GT3 were the following:

    1. Bucket seats which were also used in the 996 RS.

    2. Full cage all the way to the front dash.

    3. Single mass flywheel.

    4. Fire extinguisher.

    5. Battery kill switch in front of gear lever and under bonnet. (This is the part that is most difficult to replicate, lots of other cars claim to be clubsport, but don't have the switch by the gear lever)

    Here are some images for reference.


    Re: Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    996 Mk1 GT3 are one of my all time favorites... Just gotta love the folde taco design of the rear wing, and how all visual changes tied the shape of the car together; Rear wing, skirts, front lip and the rims... awesome car Mike, hopefully you could spare some external pages too some day!

    I had one CS, my current GT4 is very similar (with a modernization, of course)

    Agree on the GT4 (being the spiritual successor). Had a non-CS in Zanzibar red for quite some time. Remember it fondly.

    I love the Gen. 1 headlights and never liked the turbo/Gen 2. Am I the only one? Smiley


    Re: Any credible information on 996 MK1 GT3 CS numbers?

    Nope  Tim, I'm fully with you!
    Though I think straying away from the round headlights was a mistake, I think on the Mk1 GT3 they actually look  like they belong.
    For the turbo, they obviously tried to undo their decision, and in my opinion, they only made it worse, since the sharp point really don't match the rest of the curvy, rounded design language of the 911. Then again, they improved upon this by giving the mk2 GT3 more sharp design curves in the skirts and the wing on the back, but it never appealed to me as much as the mk1 GT3 did.
