There are some cars which will always command a lot of attention whenever a new version is announced and the Porsche 911 GT3 is one of them. Since the first GT3 version was launched way back in 1999 just over 14000 have been produced and of those that still survive each one has appreciated in value. In other words, they have been a solid-gold automotive investment.

A few years ago we sold a well cared-for 2005 996 GT3 which would be worth around £70k today…..

And also this drop-dead gorgeous 2010 997 GT3 RS which would set you back in excess of £135k in today’s money – possibly even more than that soon as values continue to rise northwards.

We cant tell you what the owners paid for these cars when they bought them from us but they will be comforted by the fact that their GT3’s are akin to having a barrel full of diamonds in the garage. Nice.

The latest (991) GT3 had barely been announced when the right hand drive allocation was sold out – it seems the desire for a GT3 burns bright here in the UK

The only other option it seemed was to purchase a left-hooker since the factory would make a few more of those to satisfy (most of) the rest of the world.

Fortunately we have access to a brand new, unregistered, left hand drive GT3 which has just arrived in the UK from Germany and is vat qualifying.

The specification is as follows:-

Carrera White (Solid)
Leather and Alcantara Interior
GT3 Wheels in Anthracite
Front Axle Lifting System
Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
Sport Seat 6 Point [heated] (Including Harness)
Tracking system (VTS)
Floor mats
Phone Prep
PCM with Navigation
Sound package
Aluminium Interior Trim
Alcantara Steering Wheel
Alcantara Armrest Lid
Red Harness Belts

Just for the record the latest incarnation of the GT3 features a 3.8 litre, flat-six engine mated to a PDK transmission which together produce 475 hp. The car is capable of providing a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph according to the manufacturer.

Porsche 911 Carrera S in White

N.B. This image was created using the Porsche Configurator. It is not an image of the actual car for sale.

It seems so long ago now that the 991 911 went on sale – it’s not actually, it is less than a year but just seems much longer – it is easy to overlook the fact that the four-wheel drive version on the latest incarnation of the 911 has been missing for a while now. After the usual frenzy of ‘leaked’ and ‘exclusive’ images on the Internet Porsche has finally officially released details of the Carrera 4 and 4S in both Coupe and Cabriolet versions.

Porsche claim that the AWD chassis gives the best of all worlds with better traction, roadholding and chassis dynamics and there is no reason to doubt that of course. Historically the choice between whether to go for a C2 or C4 has been based on personal preferences. Do you like a bit of wiggle in the tail or are you more concerned with achieving grip whatever the driving conditions? Some might say that the former is preferred because of the additional driver involvement but there is a market especially these days for four-driven wheels as opposed to just two. Porsche gives you that choice with the 911.

The C4 and 4S have the traditional wider rear wheel arches and in the 991 they are 22mm wider than the C2. The rear tyres are 10mm wider too. Take a look at the rear of the car and you will see that some tweaking has taken place with the appearance of a ‘signature red light band’ according to the company. Not sure what this adds in terms of appeal but hey ho.

Much of the specification of the C4 variants match the C2 so engines and respective performance figures remain unchanged i.e. more than adequate and likely to satisfy the most demanding of drivers.

Inside the new car there is an ‘all-wheel-drive indicator’ in the instrument cluster which lets you know how much torque is being sliced and diced between the front and rear axles. Useful? Probably not since the eyes are more likely to be swapping between focusing on revs, speed and the road ahead (and behind) – anything else is an unnecessary distraction.

Porsche is also introducing Adaptive Cruise Control across all models in the range and when combined with the PDK transmission customers will get the ACC plus Porsche Active Safe (PAS) which helps to prevent front-end collisions.

A new sliding glass sunroof has been added to the options list and if customers order the Sport Chrono Pack with the manual gearbox they can expect a tad more responsiveness because in Sport Plus mode the system automatically double-declutched during down-shifts. Nice.

The new Carrera 4 and 4S models will be shown for the fist time at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show and will go on sale in the UK December this year. Prices will start at £77924 for the Coupe and the Cabriolet from £86583.
