Great spec and color. I'd be all over this car if it had the new motor. Almost worth it for lack of backup camera alone....

I guess the question to a potential buyer is this: Would you rather have this beautiful 911R? Or a nearly identically equipped Touring (PCCB, LWB, full leather, etc) with a better engine and better aerodynamics and an extra $100k to $150k cash in the bank?

The GT3 touring is a winner. The 911R is a very special car and will hold its value over the long term. For the short term I don't disagree the touring is probably the way to go.

Just trying to help a buddy...have no skin in this one. If anyone has interest please reach out.

The 'R' is an 'R' always will be. The GT3T is not, though it is still a special car. I'd be an 'R' buyer at $180K. Never going to happen IMHO.

Any rough idea on expected total touring production? I assume this is just a current snapshot.

If tourings make up a very small percentage of .2 GT3s it undoubtedly makes it special. this combined with my love for the R will make me forget about the love for the wing and put some 911r stripes on it.

It's probably the first Porsche in history where AP commented on the pricing and to counter it, Porsche built a new car just to cool the market off.

It isn't the last of its generation. The motor isn't special anymore. It isn't that rare as evidenced by the countless examples available.

Prices skyrocketed due to market dynamics/forces that no longer apply like, "last manual transmission", "Motorsport car minus the wing." It's only a matter of time until market fundamentals catch up and anyone that's been paying attention the last 6+ months has witnessed a continuous downward slope to the price.

Don't catch a falling knife.
Well stated and replace the model with every GT model made. Same old song and dance. Same thing will have to all these .2ĺs. Next engine will be better, the market will correct and the next model will be out that every last person with a ton of money will have to have first for C&C. It is the porsche brand story.

Bought into the hype. Someone made some big $$ off a flip.

They're buying a 991.2 just off the flip profit

Tough situation for OP friend. Not sure what the market is, but locally we've had a few cars listed that I know of with 0 sales. Lots of price reductions to the mid 300s but no bites yet.

GT3T isn't helping the matter either. Personally, id rather have my PTS GT4 and a PTS GT3T than an R.

The R becomes appealing at MSRP or so...but who am I...I like to drive my cars. An R with miles is almost blasphemy to collectors.
