Can a car get any better than this? Absolutely timeless! I would buy this car new off a showroom floor in 2019; it hasnĺt aged at all. I went with GR 12 years ago, but meteor gray has grown on me...

The 997 GT3 is a special car whose value will continue to rise as long as we have fuel available to drive them. The prices being paid now will look paltry in 10 years. Trust me, I sold a 964 Turbo...

Beautiful car! Are you sure the rears are 305? Factory sized tires never look that stretched, especially given it appears you have Cup 2's on.

One thing I've learned owning Porsches for the last 22 years, if it doesn't kill you financially, don't sell the rare Porsches. If I had kept all of my previous Porsches, I would have at least broken...

I was the one asking. I didn't know they were the same wheels, but now that I know, I know where to buy them from.

Are we heading back to hot hatches?

Maybe I'm getting old but it's interesting to see what appears to be a cycle coming around again: hot hatch -> SUV -> cross-over -> sport wagon -> hot hatch again! Take the new Pan shooting break and...

When you consider that people are lining up to spend USD10k (new M10 + lens) for their first Leica experience here in Asia, the 997 GT3 at USD90k seems a bargain! I have a number of young successful...

OEM. I think it's best to keep cars period-correct. I've done silly things like putting 993 turbo twists on a 964 Turbo. At the time, it seemed ok, but in hindsight I cringe at how poser it looked....

I've had 964T 3.3, 993TT 36 and 997.1 GT3. The 964T is like being with a super model that uses teeth during oral sex. Not the end of the world, but certainly not as enjoyable as it should be. There...

This August will be nine years with my 2007 GT3. I did a ton of track days and only needed to replace the diff, the coolant fittings and a faulty lifter. Other than that, it's been rock solid. My...

There is absolutely no way you won't fit the car if you're 5'4" and of reasonably normal proportions. Half the pro drivers at the Porsche Camp 4 event I attended a few years back were my height which...

Most business men and women will gladly spend $500 on a pair of shoes, and they'll likely get replaced in a few years. While it's not cheap, $1500 for something relatively unique that will last the...

This is "the Grail" car right here. What can possibly top this for a real car that can be driven around and enjoyed? Perfect color, seats, options. I'd rather have this car than a PP watch any day!

If Porsche released a 415hp Mezger-engined manual gearbox GT3 in 2016, I think many would buy it for $135k. If this 2007 is in "like-new" condition, I think the price is reasonable, given the value...

IMO, never wait to own a GT3; buy a used one now and then sell it when the .2 version comes out. Your financial loss will be minimal at worst, and you won't have to get caught up in the mad rush that...
