What caused you to make this decision?

Re: It Was Fun But No More Z For Me...

Ooooo, can't wait to see it. Is it a GT3, GT3 RS, or GT3 RS 4.0? All great choices, but just curious. Can't wait for some pictures, that flat 6 sounds awesome.

Re: It Was Fun But No More Z For Me...

The GT3 makes up a large portion of the Grand-Am GT grid these days. The races are covered quite well on Speed Channel if you're interested in seeing a version of your car compete. Corvette is new to the Grand-Am Daytona Prototype class this year too so there's plenty to cheer for. After some time with the GT3, please post some comparison information.

Congrats on your new purchase. They are a great car! Your Z is/was amazing though! I loved the way it looked! Please don't be a stranger, and like some of the other guys have said, post some pics of your new GT3.

Good Luck I just bought a Porsche too, but I'm guessing you paid more than the $700.00 I did

Re: It Was Fun But No More Z For Me...

Sorry guys for the long delay in posting up pics been super busy with work and enjoying the new toy. It's a 2010 GT3 with 5200 miles. It has Exhaust, Intake & Filter, and Chipped. I have always wanted a Porsche since I was young, grew up around them and racing them with my father, timing was right and I came across an awesome car. The GT3 defiantly fits my style and what I like for a car to have.

Going to get some wheels, roll bar, & harnesses within the next few weeks.

Re: It Was Fun But No More Z For Me...

That is awesome! I love that car and would love to own one! My wife has a 911 and it is so fun, but a GT3 is my dream car (I am soooo jealous). Watch the back end, it wants to come and say hello to the front.

Actually, the Vette has always been my dream car, but ever since my wife bought her 911 I've wanted a GT3.

Congrats on the Porsche. It's a great looking car. If you do get a chance, would love to hear your thoughts on the overall feel and performance of the car as compared to the Z.
