2000 Porsche 996.1 GT3 Clubsport – WP0ZZZ99ZYS690707 1999 production RoW / German / Euro spec. sold new in Japan.
996.1 GT3 was developed to homologate the water-cooled 911 for FIA GT3 class racing. Total production of the mk1 version totaled 1868 units of which <400 were Clubsport specification. The GT3 employed the Porsche Motorsport ‘Mezger’ motor developed for the 962 & GT1 race-cars. Retaining the air-cooled engine cases and dry-sump lubrication, and featuring titanium connecting rods. 20+ years on, still delivering ample power plus legendary reliability and durability.
GT3 also feature unique aero; larger brakes; lightweight wheels; lower ride-height & retuned suspension; negligible sound-deadening; no rear seat or rear speakers; no sunroof; thinner glass and numerous interior trim differences from the regular 996.
Like the the Carrera 2.7 RS before it – where both Touring and Lightweight cars were offered – the GT3 was offered in Comfort and Clubsport versions. The ~375 Clubsport units produced extended the GT3 capabilities for racetrack use. The engine features a single-mass flywheel. The interior is further stripped of unnecessary luxury and increased safety on track – Recaro hard-back seats trimmed in Nomex; integrated roll-cage; 6-point harness for driver; fire extinguisher mount; airbag delete and battery shut-off switch.
This example is in lovely shape with 108,861 km / 67,500 miles. Japan inspection & road registration through 2022. Exterior and interior finished in Speed Yellow.
