thanks for your input, agree 100%. They nailed the styling on the RS, it’s just stunning. Plus, there’s a level of refinement in the 991.2 GT3 that I’m still trying to adjust to...it’s not as raw feeling as the RS. GRP exhaust helped, but man my RS is just awesome! Enjoy, good luck this year.

How would you compare the RS engine to the .2?

Thx

I bought most my cars sight unseen just ask for close up photos.

On another note you can have my 1500 mile Voo Doo RS for 220k

The .2 engine is fantastic and a nice step forward. For me noticeably more torque which made every day driving more enjoyable. The noise compared with the .1 GT3 is a nice improvement also.

Interesting that you put your money where your mouth is, and when it came down to it you preferred the .1 RS to the .2 GT3 having owned the RS and then re-acquiring it.... Waxer is going to be jumping up and down lol

Likely a smart buy rather than go through the hula hoops for the .2 3RS? Enjoy the RS in good health! Beautiful spec, with sofas too

Hey Nicholas. Yeah CJ and I were working on that car for a couple days. I do prefer the sofa actually and lower mileage was a plus. Appreciate the offer and will circle back if this one doesn’t pan out.

Like others have said before, great dealership. I believe the car (if it is the same vehicle) almost was sold before, but fell the sale did not go through. From what I remember, the car looked like it was in mint condition.

Ryan,
Stopped by at lunch - car was inside in service but apparently had spent the night under the stars - which did not help it photogenicness (totally made up word). The gentleman helping me said he would love to be able to wash it and have me circle back at the end of the day - getting a new lens for my camera delivered today anyway so it will give me a good reason stop by after work and grab some high res shots - even a walk around video.

From a quick inspection - besides being dirty it did look pretty much new. Wheels look great, paint protection looks well done up front, splitter has what appeared to be very minimal wear to be expected, rest of paint and bodywork looked blemish free, but I'll reserve final thumbs up for a clean look after work. I need to go in and make a final choice on seats for my GT3T order anyway so I have a reason to go back.

Best,

Eric

OP: I've bought lots of Porsches and Ferrari's sight unseen. And in most cases the dealer has taken a trade from me sight unseen. I sold my RS last month to a dealer sight unseen. I don't think it's all that crazy to buy a car like this that way. Don't sweat it, but since you have a local willing to go look at it, why not.

R,
Sent you a link to a shared photo site as the images were quite large (as were the videos - please forgive the shaky non - steady cam shots - just figuring out the new camera.)

She is beautiful.
