· A word to readers
Porsche trains the triplet of running, turning and stopping in any model range at an extremely high dimension, but I think that GT 3 is given the pleasure of taking it to the elevation and being able to maneuver at will .
1) History of purchase
911 Carrera S I happened to see it at Daydale
As a car that can be ridden with peace of mind with five families, the first generation 955 Cayenne S(MY 2006, ordering in September 2005 → delivery in April 2006)I bought a dealer to purchase. At that time, 911 Carrera S for the expected order placed by chance came to my eyes.
Until then"Porsche without decoration and ruggedness is a car on which race lovers ride"Because I thought, Porsche was not very interested.
But the 911 Carrera we saw at that time,Optional snakes, interior decoration natural blue leather, not a Tiptronic but a manual transmissionwas. I have been interested in manual transmission since the school but I never owned it. As I saw that 911, I could not suppress the feeling "I want it!" ... I consulted with my wife and decided to purchase two Cayenne and 911 Carrera S at the same time on the spot.
The trigger for purchasing 911 GT 3
Naturally, 911 Carrera S was delivered earlier than 955 Cayenne S (MY 2006) which ordered, but as we continue to drive 911 of Silver exterior peculiar to Porsche, it is completely in the charm of 911 Carrera I was taken possession.
so,A car that can move like his own limbs has never experienced any other test car.Since then, desire for further driving came up, we decided to purchase GT3.
2) Option / specification
At the time of purchasing GT 3, the basic policy was not to attach any options.For example, with regard to the sports chrono package, since the watch is mounted on the dashboard, the response to the accelerator opening degree does not change at all.
■ Body color (exterior): Black metallic (wife stamped)
■ Interior (Interior): Black (Standard)
■ Foldable carbon bucket seat
(Since the roll cage was selected, the sheet became nonflammable material)
■ 5-point seatbelts with in-car digestive tractor
(In the case of street it becomes natural leather and a 5-point seat belt and car digestive tract are not included)
■ Clear Look Tail Lamp
3) Background to delivery
- 997 Because it did not even show the latter term type first, temporary reservation
When telling the dealer the intention of purchasing GT 3, since it was not even in the late model of 997 yet, it became a form to tentatively book 997.2 GT 3. I think that it was about a year later that I was able to place an order.
At that time it was in the form of digesting the allocation in the order, so the reservation was completed without knowing the option in the summer of last year. Those who are fine as they are, although the order was completed at the time of booking,Since I was GT 3 for the first time, I waited for the option announcement and ordered it after selecting the option around autumn.
The car was delivered in April of the following year. Currently I heard that lot will be chosen for many applicants. The one chosen for lottery has the right to order.
流れ Flow from order placement to car delivery
April 2008 provisional reservation
April 2009 Booking
September 2009 option selection complete
Delivery in April 2010
4) Performance of 911 GT 3 to feel when you own it
Although there are aero etc., although the appearance of the car is basically the same as normal 911, it is understood that when riding it is a completely different ride.
Although 997.2 GT 3 introduces electronic control (PSM) which was not found in 996 generations, it will faithfully execute the driver's intention.Safety-oriented look-ahead control in the 911 carrera system is at an extremely high level.
Therefore, it is possible to manipulate "at will" literally, and the speed and accuracy of the accelerator and handling response, the little play of good meaning is not the ratio of 911 Carrera. If it expresses extremely, it is a sense that "it turns at right angles in the high speed range". To put it another way, if you want to ride normally, the 911 carrera is easier than ever.
GT 3 may be seriously bad, but even if all safety control is cut, I think that it will be okay because it seems to intervene eventually in the unlikely event.
The engine of GT 3 is totally different from the 911 carrera system.It is a GT 3 dedicated engine with GT 1 crankcase.Also the power was perfect as the displacement was boosted from 3.6 l to 3.8 l from this generation. Because of the engine layout of RR, rear grip is good, but downforce in high speed area is necessary so we were able to feel that the rear wing was enlarged.
Originally it is the best Porsche in terms of braking power, but the level goes up further when it comes to GT 3.In those days it was rumored that the problem of braking power at the beginning of riding and rainy weather was still dangerous, so dare PCCB(Porsche ceramic carbon brake)Although it did not select, the two-piece structure hat type brake rotor was very excellent.
People riding in the 997.1 type PCCB also said that the two-piece hat type brake rotor is easier to control. There is no heat sag due to the two-piece structure, and no matter how many times control from high speed goes out, there is no problem at all.
④ Engine sound
As it is a horizontally opposed engine, the engine sound is quite large, whether it is a good sound or not, but I think it is quite adult compared to Lamborghini and Ferrari.
⑤ One handful feeling
Although it is larger than the old 911, it is that weight with that size, so if you get used to it you can run like a limb, is not it the greatest charm of this car?It is called "human horse together" sense, but it is exactly right.Three races of running, turning, stopping are achieved in high dimensions and will reflect driver skills spectacularly.
⑥ Fuel economy
Is not fuel economy about 5 - 8 km / l? However, it is rarely used in town driving, and I have never driven fuel-efficient driving so far. However, I have never got on the circuit, the main use is touring with a friend or driving alone.
⑦ Low car height
Because the front lip spoiler is low, I am careful at convenience stores and gas stations, but it does not matter if I get used to it. If you need it you can attach a lifter.
⑧ Everyday use
Although it is possible to use GT3 on a daily basis, some people are actually being used everyday, but I think that the 911 carrera system can be treated more easily with everyday use if it is the center of everyday use.GT 3 is a car that does not allow play in any way in any way.Riding comfort is also not good, and neither my wife nor the children ride with it. I choose GT 3 if it is said that you can choose only one.
5) If you purchase a Porsche from now on options you want absolutely (or attached)
Finally at 991.2, the manual transmission has revived. PDK is more aware of the fact that gear change is fast and accurate,Because I want to taste the sense of horserum unity, if I purchase it with 992 type, I will choose the manual transmission without hesitation.
There was a time when the 997.1 Carrera S that was on before went over to put it in the first speed after stopping. It was the same even after replacing the short stroke kit for a while, and at that time it was a habit to put it in the first gear after putting it in second gear. I think that it was made by Aisin.
The mission of GT 3 is quite different. Even though it is very short, it enters Scosco, and in other words it is sucked in. This is one of the reasons I can not give up because it is very fun.Even if I go to Osaka from Osaka to Ise in Mie prefecture on a day trip, I have not had any problems for me(Although I was told that "BMW's clutch is lighter" who I am with both GT 3 and BMW M 3, I was acquainted). Rather, it is hard to take the timing if it is too light, I think that the weight is exactly like that.
Shifting from the time of new cars was not astonishing anywhere and it was easy. By the way my wife was on board, but I did not say that it was heavy, but rather from 997.1 it said that clutches and shifts became easier to do.Is Porsche traditional legend? At the time of departure, I did not raise the rotation of the accelerator, I joined the clutch well and started stepping on the accelerator but this was also very easy.
I think that GT 3 is sufficient, but PCCB(Porsche ceramic carbon brake)I may be able to wear it because it got better.
Recently GT3 owner seems to have mostly street specifications and a model of noisy (911R and GT3 touring package w), but I will definitely choose the next roll cage.
6) Parts to worry about
Because the air conditioner radiator is smaller than the 911 carrera,The effectiveness of the air conditioner is not good in the summer.AlsoIn congestion etc. engine oil temperature will immediately start over 120 ℃.But, I think these are incompatible places.
7) Overall rating
911 Knowing the identity of Carrera
911 Carrera which is also a synonym of Porsche. Although the model range has become quite wide now, its identity does not change to 2 + 2 of the RR engine layout either. It is a truly versatile superior car that runs from town driving to long distance drive, sports driving and circuit. Although the habit of RR layout still remained, it has gradually overcome and it is no longer a car that picks up a rider. Everyone who has a license has 911 Carrera that can have the satisfaction and safety that is ecstatic and also has enough ability for those who want to run old-fashioned runs is.
Porsche basically trains the triple races of running, turning, stopping in any model range in the same way. Moreover, it is a discipline in extremely high dimension.
Further itGT 3 is given the pleasure that you can take to the higher heights and maneuver as you wishI think.
Although the model range called RS has been lost since 996 generations, 996 GT 3 appeared under the core fans. I think that it will be understood if you investigate a little, but it is a car of Curecchire. This car assuming sports driving is a car that can minimize safety equipment and reduce weight and gain the driver's intention. It is now 996 GT 3 that has entered the class of old cars, but some fans still gaining high popularity even now.
9) What is Porsche for you?
For me Porsche is like a "family".
At the moment, at least one car is a car you want to own. Of course, including a car that a family can ride, it is strongly strongly protected, and you can drive safely.
New Cayenne also comes out, and its behavior continues to evolve more and more. It is a manufacturer car I would like to own from now on.
所 The impression of manager Mina〙
Although I got on GT 3 (991.1) for the first time the other day the other day, I felt it was a wonderful car that I could feel the Porsche feeling better than any Porsche I got on, better comfortable ride than I expected (passenger seat) . To manually drive the GT 3, both cara and his wife are too cool. cara, thank you for providing us this time!
