The 997 might be here now, but you can still buy new versions of the 996 series car like the Turbo and GT3. The GT3 is a car in the vein of the RS’s that preceded it, stripping out excess weight, adding precision and power and offering a drive that’s race car fast for the road. Delivering 381bhp from a very special version of the standard 911’s 3.6-litre powerplant the GT3 achieves this heady power output without a turbocharger, yet it’s Turbo brisk with a 0-62mph time of just 4.5 seconds. The even more extreme limited GT3 RS is rawer and even more focussed, and makes a referential link to the iconic ’73 Carrera RS with its white paintwork with blue or red wheels and graphics running along the sills. Porsche is readying a new 997 GT3, when it arrives we expect it to be sensational. It’ll need to be to beat its predecessor.
