    Finally I have received my 997 GT3

    Hello

    I am so happy to introduce to you my new Car!

    After 4 months, I have finally received my 997 GT3. The delivery was made last friday and in order to do the break in period I decided to go for a trip of 1200 km in the south of France. (no more than 5000 rpm during the first 1000 km)

    A few pics at the dealer











    Departure from the dealer after the administrative constraints A pic with the salesman:



    After 45 minutes of trafic Jam in lyon (you can imagine the nightmare!!) I joint the motorway and decided to drive till Cannes around 500 km from Lyon)

    Saturday morning I decided to visit a friend based in Cannes and in the afternoon we went to Monaco (my friend has a black 997 S) :

    The F1 championship is at the end of may that is why you can see the protections along the road :





    Sunday : On the way back (already made more than 1000 km) I decided to test the engine high revs just for fun
    The sound of the engine is so beautifull!!! and yes I can say that the engine power if amazing as well as the way the engine reachs the high revs.

    To conclude I would say that the GT3 is a very fabulous sport car that offers a lot a sensation to the driver but of course, you have to learn how of to use it.

    Re: Finally I have received my 997 GT3

    It looks spectacular. Enjoy your new car.

    Great Looking car.
    I have a question:

    Hello

    The plates on the car are temporary! In france you have temporary plates when you buy a new car and within one month you have to register the car to get your grey card (id paper of the car) and your final number.

    Bye and thank you to all of you for your kind answers

    The salesman could be your brother. And that's the Porsche to have. Enjoy.

    Re: Finally I have received my 997 GT3

    Very nice....

    Re: Finally I have received my 997 GT3

    If you know Could you please tell me what are the break in recommendations for the GT3?

    Re: Finally I have received my 997 GT3

    Sorry, I am out of the know but is the rear upper wing slightly adjustable? I've been working a lot and have been kept occupied, which I cannot keep up with all the sports cars.

    Re: Finally I have received my 997 GT3

    Oh yes, awesome car!

    Re: Finally I have received my 997 GT3
