99 Euro GT3 Club Sport Specs?


Recommended Posts

Rumor has it that there might be a Euro MK1 GT3 Club Sport racing in PCA stock C next year. A 99 I think. Can you guys give me the lowdown on this car or guide me to a site with detailed information? I'm curious how it will match up to my 3.6L X51 C2. Thanks. Jim

Jim - when I read your post I had to join this forum/site. That's no rumor about a 1999 GT3 Clubsport joining PCA Stock C because I just checked my garage and sure enough, the car is sitting there ready to race. Well almost, we're dyno testing a GT3 Cup exhaust on the car next week -- then it will be ready to race.

I'm the owner of the car -- but it didn't arrive until Oct 12, so how did you hear about it a month in advance such that you posted this query in Sept 2005? Spooky.

Check out my website at www.euro-rs.com and you'll get a better understanding of my side hobby of importing rare Euro-spec Porsche's into the US for PCA members. I'll be racing the GT3 at TWS, Mid-Ohio, Watkins Glen, Mosport, VIR and maybe Road America in PCA next year.....might even sneak the car out to the October NASA race at Infinion (great event, but a long haul from down here in Texas!)

The other guy(s) are correct that the GT3 is competely different animal from the regular 996. I considered the X51 route, but the 996 motors are derived from the Boxster design (street production) while the GT3 motor is a race derived motor -- they have very different tolerances for track abuse, etc. Joel Reiser (PCA Technical) can fill you in, but the GT3 (if taken care of) is virtually bullet proof. I race a GT3 Cup last year and had fun, but the $5K-$7K weekend race bills got to be too much. The Mark 1 GT3 was the perfect answer -- GT3 performance on a "working man's budget" and Stock C offers a fairly good field of competition (althought not as much as Stock F). I tested a new suspension set-up in the car last Saturday and couldn't stop grinning -- and we're just getting started with the sorting prior to the 2006 season.

I think I'll keep her.
