CSC present for sale this simply superb classic 996 Carrera coupe GT3 look in the timeless combination of Arctic Silver with Black leather interior. This early 996 ticks many boxes for the enthusiast who is looking for a drivable modern classic, which also offers investment potential.
A classic 2 wheel drive, manual transmission coupe with below average mileage and a fantastic service history record showing no less than 16 service stamps. The car sits nicely on the M030 sports suspension with the GT3 Aero-Kit and alloy wheels giving the car a real presence on the road.
The car is in simply remarkable condition throughout and thankfully retains the majority of its original early features including the 993 steering wheel fitted to the early cars, which so often have been swapped for later items. The highly sought after sports suspension and hard-back sports seats add further to the driving experience making this example a pure delight to drive.
The car drives impeccably with light but precise controls which make getting behind the wheel an absolute pleasure. The engine is quiet and smooth at idle and pulls strongly in each gear with plenty of low down torque and strong acceleration higher in the rev range. These early water cooled cars offer a very analogue driving experience compared to the later models with very few driver aids, and old fashioned controls such as a cable operated throttle and hydraulic power steering. This is a true and pure modern classic 911.
The many driver focused options and additions to this Carrera include sports suspension, a limited slip differential, sports seats and uprated brake pads. These, along with the GT3 Aero-kit make for a fantastic drivers car, and one which could easily be enjoyed on the occasional track day should the owner wish to enjoy the 911 owner experience to the full.
