I have a 996GT2 with the same tag and have to say its deserved.
Wish these cars had a defeatable "idiot" mode.
What do you mean? A CGT has Stability Control and Traction control. See this diagram from the owners manual.

Widow maker - if someone drives / maintains their CGT it's predictable na power balanced but those who don't idiot mode is not if but when.
It's particularly susceptible to funny business if you abruptly lift off the throttle.

Otherwise, put on new tires, don't be an idiot and you'll be fine.

Back in 2010 or so I bought a black car sight unseen for 325k-ish. It was rougher than advertised with factory tires so I headed to Sebring before cleaning it up and replacing old tires.

Im a pretty good driver but far from an expert. After a couple laps it warmed up and that clunky, notchy drivetrain smoothed out and it was a blast to drive. At my 9/10ís it drifted around even in third on crappy tires but it was always linear.

Due to all the stories, when I got home from my hour drive and a day of lapping the best sounding car in the world, I kissed the ground for bringing her home safe. But it was never as scary as itís reputation suggests.

Manual, sound, open top, performance and engineering, the CGT is the most exciting car I have ever experienced.

Nice museum piece that will never be driven.

I'd be looking for 10 to 15k milers right now. With service history.

That's a lot of 1's and again think that's a good buy vs pors9 well sold theme - owners more often than not after kick themselves for selling.

Attending exotic car show this weekend many 1M+ cars - can only take one car never considered CGT.

Show coordinator contacted me earlier this week offering a roped area for the CGT to sit along side an Enzo.
