When Porsche built the 911 R they didn’t expect that speculators would be taking advantage of the demand by selling them on for higher prices than initially offered. But Porsche responded by announcing the 911 GT3 Touring, a model based on the 911 GT3 and essentially the same concept as the 911 R for much less. All of a sudden here was a factory alternative.
The latest Porsche 911 992 GT3 has just been launched promising the same approach Porsche has taken with every new 911: the same but more/better. There will be a new 911 Touring in the near future but if you can’t wait, Sydney classic car dealer Classic Throttle Shop is selling what has to be the most desirable spec 991 GT3 Touring around.
It’s impossible not to fall for the Irish Green paint, a 911 classic colour which never gets old and suits the 911 GT3 Touring extremely well. Chrome window surrounds and those huge spindly wheels work in unison adding plenty of class to what is really a brute of a car, and of course that 4.0L naturally aspirated engine and manual transmission make it one of motoring’s high points.
With only 2,800 kms from new this is ready for someone to appreciate and drive and drive and drive and is priced at $394,995 AUD.
