Recently, Andrew took a look at a 996.2 GT3 and noted that if you wanted one…well, now was not the best time to buy.
With just 16,000 miles, the 2004 example that he looked at certainly seemed priced at the top of the market with a $148,500 asking price. But it was not the top of the market…no, not by a long shot.

Merit Partners is pleased to present this 2004 Porsche GT3 in Black over Black leather. With only 3,594 miles, this is the finest example on the market. Equipped with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), carbon fiber door sills, shifter knob, brake, and steering wheel this GT3 has all the right options. The paint on this car is flawless, and the interior is immaculate. The side bolsters are perfect and there no scratches on any of the trim, carbon fiber or leather surfaces.
The 3.6L naturally aspirated engine produces 380 horsepower and redlines at 8,200 RPM. Matched to a 6-speed manual transmission, and weighing only 3,042 pounds, this car defines the sport of driving. The car has Michelin tires, comes with 2 keys, books, and a clean CARFAX.

That’s right, this one has come to market with – amazingly – far less mileage than the silver example, and – even more amazingly – a $62,500 higher asking price. It wasn’t that long ago that delta would have actually bought you a GT3! There’s not much to distract here; the black-over-black presentation is good but not adventurous, the options are moderate but do include the ceramic brakes, and there’s not much to discuss otherwise. Who does this car appeal to? That to me is pretty strange. $211,000 plus some scratch for taxes gets you into a lot of cars; not the least of which is the brand-new GT3. I can’t imagine too many people are jazzed to pony up over 200k for a 996 model these days, but perhaps if you must have an as-new one?
