Spotted in China: 996 Porsche 911 GT3

A very clean and very mean 996 Porsche 911 GT3, seen on the Beijing Tuning Street here in the Capital. The speedy Porsche was sexed up considerably by a plastic-fantastic body kit, black racing stripes, a Forgiato sticker on the windshield, black Forgiato alloys, and blue & black mirrors.

The blue on the alloys is the same blue as the blue on the mirrors and the same blue as the blue on the side-winglets attached to the wing on the back. The Porsche 996 911 was made from 1998 until 2004, and the GT3 arrived in 1999. The GT3 is powered by a souped-up version of the mighty 3.6 liter flat-six, good for 380hp and 385nm. Top speed is 310km/h and 0-100 is gone in 4.5 seconds.

Wheels barely fit under the arches, looking very racy.

Giant wing in Porsche GT3 RS-style.

Original single-pipes replaced by this rather special double ensemble. Extra black plastic behind the rear wheel only adds weight but loox very racy again.

    Hey Tycho,

    Unfortunately this isnt a genuine GT3, but instead a normal 996 Carrera automatic (ugh..) version which has been dressed up with the GT3 kit.

    Yep sure thing, I think the guy runs one of the shops at tuner town. He usually cruises around Sanlitun on weekend nights with a bunch of rich kids in Lambos/ Maseratis.
