Back in January, I took a look at a GT Package 996 with very low mileage in great condition and with the IMS bearing done; in short, there was little to complain about, except for the asking price at $43,000:
2001 Porsche 911 Carrera GT Package
Well, I’m back with another 996.1; this time, is a C4 with the factory Aerokit bits in Speed Yellow. Mileage is even lower this time around, yes the IMS bearing is done, and it’s got some great BBS wheels. What does that do for the asking price? Hold on to your wallet…
While Porsche might be the king of à la carte optioning, in the early 2000s they offered a series of packages lumping some desirable extras together. The two most commonly seen are the Technic and Comfort packages, which added things like Bose audio, power-adjustable seats, and xenon lights. But one that is rarely seen is the GT package. Basically, this gave you a turned down GT3; you got M030 suspension, Aerokit, and stainless-steel exhaust tips for a visual approximation of the higher-spec car. Today’s example takes that one step further with also GT3-specification 18″ Sport Design wheels and sport seats. It also has only 34,000 miles and yeah, the IMS was replaced. What’s left to complain about?
