Default Let's discuss - GT3 touring future classic?

Hey guys,

what's your opinion on this? I don't see a lot for sale and for me this is THE VERSION to own. Most modern Porsche are by no means collectible machines, but
because of the NA engine, manual transmission and lower volume do you believe this could be a sought after model in 10-15 years?

cheerio

Ian

I don't think so--depends on if there's a 992 GT3 Touring NA // Manual

I own one but I don't think so. Too many will be built globally.

There were nearly 1,600 of the 73RS. Not sure the number of Tourings will exceed that? I think they will be scarce enough - more important to know how much of a high-water mark it is in time (better than everything before or after it for significant period).

Its an awesome car, but It's a trim package on a gt3. And I seriously doubt it's the last of its kind; Porsche will make something similar in the 992 lineup. I'd just drive it and be glad if it doesn't depreciate much by the time you sell it and move onto the next car. If you are "keeping it", doesn't really matter if it's a future classic or not because it will outlast you

Once you sit in a 992, the 991 will feel like a classic. Long live analog gauges! Save the digital dash stuff for Sedans and SUV's.

Sure, just as any old 911 becomes a classic given enough time. Or is this really just another 'value' thread?

It could've been, but Porsche held back because of 911R crowd. Don't @ me. If they never build another GT3, or the next one is turbo... strong YES. If not, nope but a very fine Porsche, amongst the best.

Doubt it would accrue more value over time than the regular GT3. I think the question is really will the 991 GT3 become a classic (or maybe will the manual 991.2 GT3 become a classic). It’s like G body 911 coupes from the 80s—some of them have spoilers and some don’t and whether you’re into the spoiler or not is a personal thing and whoever doesn’t like them both is objectively lame.

In my opinion, the only 991 platform cars that have a chance of being collectible (appreciate above original MSRP) are the 911R, GT2 RS and Speedster. Porsche flooded the market with GT3's and GT3 RS's over the .1 and .2 generations.

This. I may even exclude the GT2s from last list with the pace they keep cranking out more of them.

If Singer 30 yrs from now does a recreation based on the 991.2 body - there is a chance - otherwise can't see a good reason.

Too many produced, at the end of the day it is a trim package, and I wouldn't consider it 'rare' in the sense that there are still a lot of them built to be considered 'exclusive' or limited. On that note, - if you look at the NA statistics, there are just as many Tourings as manual Wing cars (literally just 10 cars difference), I don't see a deviation between one and the other in terms of price movements.

I’ll just be happy if the Touring just holds it’s value for the time being. It appreciating in the near future won’t happen baring Porsche announcing no more Touring or F/I motors. Which won’t happen with 992. Most of the camouflage test cars indicate they are n/a and manual.
