    996 is the best one. Simple, beautiful, perfect.

    Was the 996 the only one with a Mezger engine?

    My favorite car of all time. Which GT3 specifically, you ask? All of them.

    That was a great read, thank you.

    Now let's pray to almighty Kaz that we get all GT3/2 and GT3/2 RS' in GT Sport. Would go nice with the name of the game :)

    Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it. It was Wednesday, so I wanted to channel a little bit of the history lessons @Joey D provided with the Wants. :)

    The Mezger lasted until the end of the 997.2 generation in the road cars.

    After reading this last night I just had to get on Forza Horizon 4 and drive around britain in a 996 GT3 in red just like the one in this article first thing in the morning. Love the superb handling and analog feel of the older cars.

    The 996 and 997 Turbo/GT2 engines were also of the Mezger variety, to add to @SlipZtrEm 's post

    Proof once again 997.2 was the aesthetic peak of watercooled 911s.

    Never felt the 991.1, but the .2 GT3 was a return to form.
