2003 Porsche 911 GT3 Mark II
TASTY RECIPE: MORE POWER, LESS WEIGHT
Few will argue that the Porsche 911 is among the most iconic automobile ever produced. Through the years, tens of different variants were built; from comfortable cruisers to race cars. Customers wanted to use the latter on a more often basis, so Porsche started converting track cars into road legal cars. The most legendary cars evolved from this recipe: the 2.7 Carrera RS, 911 3.2 Clubsport, 964 RS, 993 RS and Porsche 911 GT3 to name a few.
The Porsche GT3 craze started in 1999. Porsche built road-going race versions of their 911 range before, so they knew what they were dealing with. This meant the rear seats, rear loud speakers, sunroof and most of the sound deadening of the standard 996 911 had to go. Both the air conditioning and CD/radio installation became no-cost optional extras.
Although the engine shared the same basic design of the standard so-called ‘’integrated dry sump’’ flat-six engine in the Porsche 996, it set itself apart from the other Porsche 996 models. The engine is naturally aspirated and based on the engine used in the Group C Porsche 962 and Le Mans Porsche 911 GT1. This formally named Mezger-engine was dubbed after its designer Hans Mezger.
The flat-six block produced around 360 bhp in the 996.1, which was over 60 bhp more than the regular Porsche 996’s. All of that power is send to the rear wheels through a manual transmission. The 996.2 pushes out around 380 bhp. Both generations weren’t equipped with traction control or PSM. Unexperienced drivers may be surprised by how agile the drive of the car is. Experts say that’s exactly why this is the most fun GT3 to drive.
