My first Porsche - 2018 911 GT3

And what a car it is. Sold my 458 this past summer (after having it listed nearly a year ) and after browsing autotrader for 5 months I finally found my dream spec. Manual, chalk gray, bucket seats, front axle lift, ceramic brakes, bose stereo. 1400 miles. Would have been nice to have the carbon trim but not a huge deal.

Waiting for the temps to before I can really push it. Went for a short cruise already and it feels way more dialed in than the Ferrari, which felt a bit playful by comparison. The shifter and clutch are a step up from the f80. Shifter requires a bit more effort and feels more mechanical.

I can already tell this car ticks all the boxes for me though and will likely be a long term keeper as more cars go turbocharged and dct.

Why would you pollute your thread with pictures of your run of the mill M3? We want more pics of the Porsche!!

What model/year 911 is that? Love Chalk

Congrats, gorgeous cars and great spec! I've been browsing GT3s since March then bought my F80, as a daily. The GT3 is still on the near term radar but need to find the right one.

CHalk is a fascinating colour, i should hate it but i kinda like it with black accents. GT350's look good in chalk also.

Really nice spec all round.

If the RS had a manual it would be a no brainer for me. And really the RS is only faster because it has cup car suspension and major downforce.. two things which aren't needed on the street.

Congrats on the GT3. Beautiful spec and smart choice going for the manual. I had a chance to drive and experience the GT3 on the road and track and it is pure joy. Enjoy the new beast!

Looks great. A close friend of mine just got a 2007 Turbo. That thing is a beast as I am sure yours is! Great purchase - congrats.

Are you looking to modify at all? Even the apex predator GT3 can be enhanced.

These guys are super cool and knowledgeable, best in the biz as far as I'm concerned.

very nice. alot cheaper than the dundon software! i'll probably wait on any sort of tuning until the warranty is over though. need to learn the car first.

A naturally aspirated manual GT3 is certainly a GOAT car.

Been following your rides since the FT86club days, enjoy and I hope this car sticks around in the garage! I may have a Rennlist account but still no Porsche in the garage heh

How do you like the GT3 vs the 458? I have a GT4 + E92 SC M3 in my stable and have been considering a GT3 or 458 to upgrade the GT4 to.
