Default So many pdk GT3s for sale

Autotrader shows 36 2018 GT3s for sale with pdk transmission. I thought this is the transmission to get in the new GT3. I wonder why are people selling them...hmmm. Are they flippers or are they moving to the new RS?

We all know you have an agenda to push regarding manuals......

It’s simple: the 911R amd few others skyrocketed in value hence everyone is trying to predict the next hot stock and buying up stuff for that reason..the “flippers” have realized the 991.2 gt3 is not skyrocketing so all are dumping with delivery miles including dealers for a small profit ...but the real value will be determined (high or low) when production ceases..so sit tight and enjoy the show..ha

Sheerk nailed it. For those that remember this is not unlike the '90's when the speculators ruined the car world for more that a few years. Remember the $1m 427 Cobras, the $1m '67 427/435 hp Corvettes and now the $1m 911R's

Actually my theory on this is as follows; many are just riding the GT train. You always buy the latest GT car that you can get your hands on, knowing full well that you will break even / make a small profit or loss when you sell it.

This way you get to own and drive everything that AP makes, whilst always having a new car / car with warranty and maintaining a relationship with your dealer so that you can get the next one (got to build up that 1M in sales with them somehow).

As long as you can float the money and never really form attachments with your cars it makes perfect sense. In fact why wouldn’t you do this? (In Australia where I live the market is not the same so it wouldn’t work, plus I have no interest in PDK cars).

People realized that PDKs are a bore and miss the third peddle. They want to feel like senna zipping around Monaco. Besides, cars and coffee dudes loooooove the stick

Cars.com showing approx 23 of 59 in manual. Manuals were the flippers tranny of choice. Was more of an anticipated jackpot win.

In reality, well over 120 total .2's for sale. The speculative buying was strong on this one. Thing is, when everyone knows about it, it's not quite a winning ticket.

I hope someday, when I wear my big boy pants, someone can teach me how to push my left foot down, then pull my right hand down, then release my left foot. These purist movements seem so complicated, so I sure hope all this extra driving engagement doesn't push my adderall over the edge.
