obsessions. gt3.

These days, i  am utterly obsessed with the 997 GT3.  To me, it is the perfect Porsche.  Of course i love ‘older’ 911s….as the simple mechanics of vintage cars appeals to me greatly; but i also live a modern lifestyle, i drive to work in NYC all the time, i drive in the winter, i drive around aimlessly for a laugh, i like technology but not too much.  I absolutely love the GT3.

i also love the line that Chris says in this video that says “I love it when people say these don’t sound as good as the air-cooled cars, cos that is utter shit! this sounds wonderful”……BRAVO Chris…..down with the air-cooled snobs!

they’re coming down in price quickly…i see 2nd hand ones in the $80k-90k range…..996s are down in the $40-60k range.  Audi R8s are floating down to the $80k range as well……i tell you, a couple years from now….and a 997 GT3 in the $60k range, assuming all continues in my life according to plans——-WILL definitely be a frontrunner for my garage spot.
