  • Offered from an exceptional Swiss Porsche collection
  • The track-only variant of the 996 GT3
  • Just under 7,900 kilometres from new


Following the premiere of the 996-generation 911, Porsche’s first 996 variant intended for the racetrack was the GT3. With a 3.6-litre engine derived from the GT1, the engine was rated at 360 horsepower and 7,200 rpm. It provided 60 additional horsepower over the base 3.4-litre motor in the standard Carrera. The car was also fitted with an adjustable suspension with a unique body kit, including a dual-plane rear wing. The interior featured sports seats and the deletion of some interior trim to keep weight down. Curiously though, the GT3 tipped the scales at 2,976 pounds, 66 pounds heavier than a standard 911, due to the larger engine and efforts made to strengthen the bodywork.

For those looking to use their GT3 exclusively on the track, Porsche also built a track-only version of the GT3, dubbed the GT3 Clubsport. There were only a handful of differences from the GT3 compared to the GT3 Clubsport. These included the fitment of a full roll cage and a Nomex-covered driver’s seat without side airbags. Not for use on the street, these cars were track-ready in every aspect and able to compete in a number of racing series worldwide. This particular example remains in great shape. Finished in yellow over black, it has travelled just under 7,900 kilometres from new.

Perhaps one of the most overlooked of Porsche’s GT3 models, the 996 GT3 Clubsport provides the ideal track-day weapon for someone looking for a back-to-basics 911.





Type 996. Six-cylindres à plat 3 600 cm3, 360 ch, 2 ACT par banc, transmission manuelle six rapports, suspension réglable, quatre roues indépendantes, freins à disque sur les quatre roues. Empattement 2 350 mm.

• Issue d'une exceptionnelle collection Porsche en Suisse
• Version de la 996 GT3 uniquement réservée à la piste
• Un peu moins de 7 900 km d'origine

Après la génération initiale de 911 type 996, la première Porsche 996 destinée à la piste était la GT3. Son moteur de 3,6 litres de cylindrée dérivé de la GT1 développait la puissance de 360 ch au régime de 7 200 tr/mn. Il fournissait ainsi 60 ch de plus que le 3,4 litres de la Carrera de base. La voiture était également équipée d’une suspension réglable et d’une carrosserie spécifique comprenant un aileron arrière double. L’intérieur se caractérisait par des sièges baquet de compétition ainsi que la disparition d’éléments de sellerie dans le but de limiter le poids. Curieusement, à 1 350 kg, la GT3 pèse pourtant 30 kg de plus qu’une 911 « standard », du fait du moteur plus conséquent et des modifications effectuées pour rendre la coque plus rigide.

Afin de fournir aux clients qui le souhaitaient une GT3 exclusivement dédiée à une utilisation piste, Porsche a donc mis au point une version spéciale dénommée Clubsport. Par rapport à la GT3, les différences qu'offrait la GT3 Clubsport n'étaient pas très nombreuses. Elles comportaient la présence d’un arceau-cage, d’un siège baquet recouvert de Nomex et l’absence d’airbags latéraux. N’étant pas destinées à une utilisation routière, ces autos étaient prêtes à tout point de vue à prendre la piste et elles étaient capables de prendre part à des compétitions aux quatre coins de la planète. Présenté dans une livrée jaune sur noir, cet exemplaire particulier, en bel état, n’a parcouru que 7 900 km depuis l’origine.

Tout en étant peut-être une des Porsche GT3 les plus oubliées, la 996 GT3 Clubsport n’en reste pas moins une arme redoutable pour l’amateur souhaitant retrouver les « fondamentaux » de la 911.
