997 GT2 new was GBP 130k. There are current listings in Piston Heads UK for used ones at GBP 140 k - 150 k albeit listings and not done deals. Original price /current asking price aside, I wonder if members think its worth hanging on to on the last of the 911 Porsche heritage GT cars with manual 6 speed, the Mezger engine, Hydraulic steering... potential in time to come to become anywhere near as sought after as a 993 GT2 you think ? Appreciate any comments.
i believe 996 , 997 GT cars have the Mezger engine which is said to have a stronger crank compared to M96 but I am sticking with the stock Dual Mass Flywheel anyways .... now waiting for the SACH Stage 2 clutch which is taking forever. On another note saw the 991 GT3 RS earlier in the week - noticeably bigger wheel /bigger arches , front and back = stunning! Would one trade a manual 997 Gt2 for a PDK GT3 RS ?
Silver - Thanks for the heads up! Definitely want to avoid any risk to the crankshaft ! Will stick with Dual Mass and just upgrade to the stronger SACHS clutch. I also spoke with a race engineer for a Carerra Cup Asia team earlier today and he said he previously converted a Carerra to single mass , couldn't stand the gear box rattle and changed back to Dual.
Ziff, Thanks for sharing your SACHS 2.5 clutch upgrade with the lwfw on your GT2. I have a 2009 997 GT2 which is due for a clutch change and am wondering what is your experience with it a year+ down the road? Happy still to recommend the lwfw kit or stick to the dual mass ? Any crankshaft issues running the lwfw? Appreciate your comments...thanks in advance!
