Default 2019 GT3RS or GT3 Touring?

Hey guys, I'm new to this section of the forum. I have an allocation (I think) from Champion and have a GT3RS on order scheduled for January delivery. I'm having some second thoughts about the GT3RS and am possibly thinking about searching for a GT3 Touring instead. I definitely like how the Touring is more subtle and the manual transmission. I feel like it will be a better street car to enjoy. I will most likely not be tracking either car, I'd get something more of a beater for that. Would love to get peoples input who have spent a good amount of time in both.

Obviously the money is different and the GT3RS is maybe more rare? But this really isn't about the money, it's about the enjoyment factor of driving on the street and not looking like a douche.

First of all, are you sure you got an allocation? There is a scam going at the dealership you are referring to.

Based on what you're looking for, the Touring sounds like the right car. I have almost 7,000 miles on mine and absolutely love it. You really can't push the car 10/10's on the street (unless you want to go to jail), so if you're not going to track it, go subtle. The Touring get's some attention, but not too much.

You might test drive a Turbo S....you sound a lot like I did a few months ago and I switched from GT3 to TTS for some of the reasons you state..

You want attention get the RS
You want stealth get the touring
Let’s face it, if tracked few will be able to extract 100% out of either of these cars

Kind of funny...I’m in the same boat

leaning towards a RS...I bought a regular gt3 in 2007...then regretted it until Trakcar convinced me to buy Moody’s GT3RS

i still own the RS to this day, will never sell it

on the other hand a touring is a good daily....for a GT3.

RS brings attention...but has enough difference the soul is more raw

agsin I have trakcar in my ear telling me to buy RS...I’ll probably follow suit so someone can re-open DE Cup southeast

ill daily my defender I guess lol

Based on your description, touring is the correct car for you. Touring cars should hold their value better than a tts imho, if that even matters to you.

First of all, yes I do think I have my allocation as he wasn't my salesman and my deposit went to a different account.

As much as I respect the TTS it's not the car for me. It's really between a GT3RS and a GT3 Touring for me. The funny thing is there is no more allocation for the GT3 at Champion so I can't switch my RS to a GT3 Touring. I was thinking if one popped up there (they have a red one there now but red kind of defeats the purpose of the Touring to me) I think they would let me change cars.

Yes I 'think' I'm good.

My dealer offered me a GT3RS as for some reason they thought that was my eventual goal, I declined as my use is 100% street and I like three pedals and I would prefer not to stand out (if I got a GT3RS or GT2RS it would be in black and the wing would be a shelf in my house, not on the car).

its all about what YOU want. While I am sure the cars feel similar, they look very different and the whole PDK v. 6MT.
