Default New owner .2 GT3 intro

just wanted to introduce myself - recently acquired 2010 GT3

First to give props to Doug at Switchcars - my first purchase from him and my best car buying experience (and i have bought and sold more than i care to admit). He is honest and easy to deal with. No slick salesman talk, no pressure and no tricks. Easy to recommend him.

This car was discussed a few mos ago here. I happen to live close by and took one look and could not pass it up. Lovely options. Tons of carbon, alcantara, axle lift, roll cage, cat bypass. Near flawless body and paint, 10K miles.

My 4th Porsche - I keep coming back. Been thru ferrari, GT-R,NSX, M3, 996 TT, R8

good to be back - this car is impressive

Traded in my 09 R8. It was too soft, too numb and muted. nice slotted shifter but i actually didnt love the V8. very odd engine sound - almost an electric whine.
GT3 is very different to say the least. Raw, loud, connected, deliberate.

My first white car. A friend called her "the ghost". I like it.

Cant wait for spring to get it to the track.

Congrats on an amazing car!!! It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. And I totally agree with you on Doug at Switchcars!!! I've had several dealings with Doug over the past few years and had a great experience. He respects his customers, is a man of his word, and very knowledgeable. Enjoy your car!!!
