    What does a low cost track car cost?

    What would I have to spend to get a fairly low cost track car... One that is street legal enough to drive up to the track... It needs to be something at least good enough for me to not miss my 997S that much if I sell it, but cheap enough to justify selling my 997S...

    Re: What does a low cost track car cost?

    A friend of mine bought a used 2005 996 GT3 this past year and paid about $85,000 for it. He is an experienced driver - has his SCCA national license, and has driven Porsche's for years. He club races it.

    He goes the private sales route when buying and insists on getting the Porsche 100 or 200 point check so he knows what needs to be done before making any offer. This would be the most economical way to go.

    Get a Spec Miata - really competitive racing and cheap. New crate motor costs less than new brake rotors for a GT3

    Seriously, I would consider an older 911 that is already track prepped and dialed-in. 78-83 911SC for $15k-$20k or 84-89 Carrera for $20k-$30k or 993 for $25k-$40k

    If your budget is big enough, could get a used 996 GT3 with racing seats and rollbar/harnesses for around $75k...

    An old saying in racing:
    Fast, reliable, cheap. Choose 2.
