Fastest I'll drive, I think, is about 140. If car needs wing to be most stable, I want wing.

The world is not as judgemental or uptight as it may seem, even in finance, medicine, law or science. The wing is also a good way to reposition it from "I'm want to show off my money" to "I am passionate about cars", which is a much more favorable perception if that matters. Not trying to convince - either choice is perfectly valid - just giving a different perspective and a personal experience.

appreciate the perspective. Thanks. I had a 991.1 that I didn't daily drive because if the wing. Maybe I was making more of it than it is.

You won't need a wing to be stable at 140. Putting aside diffuser plenty of Carrera's with no diffuser or GT Wing quite comfortably running around tracks at 140.

A variation on this theme / meme might be "Finally buys a GT3, must have wing...", no?
(similar to Clarkson ordering his first new Ferrari in red)

I agree that Porsche is not going to offer a car that can go 200 mph, but is unsafe at 140 mph. However, that doesn't mean that the Winged GT3 won't be noticeably more stable at that speed (particularly on a fast sweeping turn on track or Autobahn or under braking).

Do people buy the GT3 because it's a great drivers car or to let other people know they bought a GT3?

How much downforce do you wing lovers think it produces at 140-ish?

For reference:
991.2 at 200km/h 53kg (wing at steepest)
991.1 29kg

60-75 pounds is only going to be noticeable to the very best. Running through that same corner at 138 instead of 140 will be fine for those that don't want a wing...
