    Re: Exige S vs 996 GT3 mk1

    The Exige S is not available in the States. So the 996 GT3?

    Re: Exige S vs 996 GT3 mk1

    my bad...

    I am not in the States right now, so Exige S is ok too!

    Re: Exige S vs 996 GT3 mk1

    BTW, I'm told the Exige S will be available in the U.S. for 2007. I even saw 3 supercharged Exiges at a local dealer with EPA testing document.

    I don't know much about the GT3 MkI. The MkII is unquestionably faster at most tracks, but two or three people in SoCal have sold theirs and gone to Exiges due to both running costs and fun factor for track duty.

    Re: Exige S vs 996 GT3 mk1

    IMO "purchase" and "running costs" sums up pretty much as a key difference between these cars. For a good 2nd hand GT3MKI (between 60.000 and 70.000 EUR) you can buy a brand new 240 HP Exige Cup 240: 68.000 EUR or 220 HP Exige S (62.000 EUR). Both will handle extremely well on track but the Exige due to its very low weight will suffer half as much as the GT3. This will logically result in less operating costs (tyres, brake pads and discs, maintenance...).

    But to be clear, I hate using financial considerations to compare Porsches with anything else, because it simply doesn't sum up to that . Before buying my current TT I've driven a GT3 MKI in clubsport version and it was walhalla on wheels . On the other hand, I couldn't tell how a Exige 240 would drive but I guess it must be awesome.

    Maybe another consideration to have is the "grand tourism" capacity of both cars. While I see myself driving with 2 persons from Brussels to Monte Carlo in a GT3, including luggage, I don't think this would be as easy-going in an Exige .

    Ideally you should have both .
