This well cared for 2005 911 GT3 in stunning Basalt Black Metallic has been updated with a Kevlar 997 GT3 front end, doing away with the little-loved ' amoeba' headlamps in favor of the more stately and classically Porsche round headlights. The car is in outstanding condition with only 32, 000 miles since new. The front spoiler lip is scratched but will be replaced upon delivery to a new buyer. Otherwise, this car shows in almost as-new condition. It currently wears a set of custom HRE Performance Wheels with 235-35-19 Pirelli P-Zero Corsa rubber up front and 295-30-19 tires in the rear. The car is equipped with one-piece OEM GT3 Cup leather racing buckets with both standard shoulder belts as well as 6-point, Sparco racing harnesses secured to a factory Porsche stainless steel roll bar/harness bar. A GT3 RS steering wheel has been fitted featuring red stitching to match the red french stitching throughout the interior. The suspension features Bilstien PSS 10 Coil Overs with Brembo custom rotors and oversized calipers. The clutch has been replaced with a Porsche Sport Clutch, and the intake has been replaced with a Fabspeed Intake manifold. The exhaust has been updated to a 997 GT3 Stainless Steel Exhaust system with center muffler bypass all wrapped with a carbon fiber rear lower panel. In addition to the aforementioned upgrades, the car also comes with: a set of FIKSE High Performance Profil 5S track-day wheels wrapped in Hoosier R6 track tires with tire carriers; a new-in-the-box California Car Cover outdoor car cover; an indoor custom fitted Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cover; and a Battery Tender trickle charger. It has recently had the O2 sensors replaced, new brake pads installed, oil and filter change as well as a gear oil change. This one-of-a-kind specimen has seen primarily weekend, highway miles. It has been tracked only about 10 times. The car is running in top form and is a joy to drive. Between the two prior owners, over $160, 000 has been invested in this vehicle. You really must see it to appreciate it. From Wikipedia.org:996 GT3 Overview Production 1999–2005 Powertrain Engine 3.6 L 360 hp (268 kW) H6, 3.6 L 380 hp (283 kW) H6 Dimensions Length 174.6 in (4, 435 mm) Width 69.7 in (1, 770 mm) Height 50.2 in (1, 275 mm) As with Porsche' s 911 RS models, the GT3 was devoid of any unnecessary items that would add weight to the car. Sound deadening was almost completely removed, as the rear seats, rear loud speakers, sunroof, and air conditioning, although automatic air conditioning and CD/radio became no-cost optional add-ons. The engine of the 996 GT3 set it apart from most of the other Porsche 996 models, although it shared the same basic design of the standard so-called "integrated dry-sump" flat-six engine. The engine is a naturally aspirated flat six-cylinder engine, based on the unit used in the Porsche 962 and Porsche 911 GT2 race cars. That engine was known as the ' Mezger' engine, after its designer Hans Mezger. The engine uses the original air-cooled 911' s versatile dry-sump crankcase, with an external oil reservoir. The 996 GT3 has 360 PS (265 kW; 355 hp), compared to the 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) of the regular Porsche 996. In GT3 configuration, this so-called "split" crankcase (meaning the parting line of crankcase is on the crankshaft centerline) uses, instead of a fan and finned cylinders, separate water jackets added onto each side of the crankcase to cool banks of three cylinders with water pumped though a radiator. Thus, the GT3 engine is very similar to the completely water-cooled 962 racing car' s engine, which is based on the same crankcase. The 962 differs, however, by using six individual cylinder heads while the GT1/GT3, like the air and water-cooled Porsche 959, uses two cylinder heads, each covering a bank of three cylinders. The GT3 engine could thus also be thought of as similar to a 959 engine, but with water-cooled cylinders. Up to early model year 2004 GT3 production, the basic casting used for the crankcase of the GT3 was the same as the air-cooled engine. The "964" casting number was visible on the bottom of the crankcase, and on areas normally machined in air-cooled applications, but not in water-cooled ones. The crankcase casting was changed in mid-2004 to a "996" casting number crankcase to eliminate these external air-cooled remnants, but internally it was the same. Because the 911 air-cooled crankcase uses the Porsche 356 engine to transmission mounting flange configuration, the 996 GT3 used a manual transmission also of air-cooled 911 heritage. This gearbox has interchangeable gear ratios and is more durable making it more suitable for racing than the standard 911 type 996 gearbox. To bring the vehicle'
