Almost 3 years ago I suggested the opposite sequence of G3 > G2 > G1 on the basis of the physical evidence. Skip to the end of this post for that comment. I still stand by that hypothesis based on the features, positioning, composition, construction, satellites, boat pits, surrounding vicinity, and topography at each pyramid. Just one example is that the quarries to the north and south of G2's causeway which have been identified as sources for G1's blocks clearly respect that causeway.

Also read the prior and subsequent posts by Thanos for some counterpoint.

There are many examples of missing blocks and substitute blocks per adaption. Yes, many walls appear to show recesses where other blocks have have been removed to form that flat vertical wall, the recesses indeed hinting of "pour and cure" rather than "carve and haul" stonework.

Bottom line, I think the issues you raise (and the '15 discussion cited above) hint very rather strongly that those structures are far more ancient than the Dynastic era and do not represent a largescale concurrent construction within a coordinated, predetermined, singular "Giza Project".
