I’ve been looking at and writing about the 996 GT3 market for a little while now. I’ve become somewhat captivated by these cars and their place on the current 911 market. The basics are simple: the GT3 is a fantastic driver’s car with purity and focus that typifies the love of motoring felt by many of us, but among Porsches the price remains reasonable all things considered. A GT3 is by no means inexpensive, but the craze of the air-cooled market sometimes distracts us from the performance value available when we step outside of that arena. Thus, I was delighted to see this Basalt Black Metallic 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 come our way. Within the GT3 world the mileage on this one is a little higher, but correspondingly the price a little lower. The condition looks excellent: the metallic black paint shows really well and the interior looks crisp and clean. It isn’t entirely original, but that’s okay. The appeal here is to have one of the best driving cars Porsche has unleashed upon the American market and for that we can let certain things slide.
