There are modern classics, and then there are instant classics. Porsche's 911 GT3 is the latter. Introduced in 1999 as a homologation special for FIA GT3 competition, the 911 GT3 was a stripped down, no-nonsense sports car for the hardest of the hard core. Starting with the new 996 platform, Porsche added a 3.6-liter "Mezger" flat six, bigger brakes, sport suspension and interchangeable gear ratios to create a true race car for the street. Overnight, the Porsche GT3 became one of the world's most desirable sports cars, a status it has yet to relinquish over the model's 21-year history. The first-generation Porsche 911 GT3 is now the subject of a highly detailed 1:43-scale resin replica by Spark. Featuring the real car's aggressive stance and prominent aero package, the Spark GT3 is a worthy addition to any collection of high-performance Porsche scale models.
