Find one that you really like, then negotiate a fair price. Don't spend this kind of money and settle for a car that doesn't grab you just to save a few bucks because it seems like a 'deal'.

Exactly. Getting the right car is worth way more.

Hate to revive an old thread, but just wanted to post an update. Firstly, thanks all for the amazing feedback - it was extremely helpful. What a great community this is. Secondly, I did end up buying option 2. As a reminder, option 2 was 2015, LWBS, FAL, leather, SC, CPO, <14k miles, $155k MSRP, GT Silver. Basically perfectly optioned for me but color gave me pause - I have never been a Silver car guy. However, after multiple visits to local dealerships to check out various flavors of 911s in GT Silver (although no GT cars), I liked the color more than I thought I would. Got a PPI done and pulled the trigger post much deliberation. Car showed up on the truck this am. Color looks even better on a GT car! Unfortunately, I had to leave for work shortly after delivery, but can't wait to get back! Just a surreal day - still sinking in that I am fortunate to be a GT car owner at 30. Growing up in a 3rd world country, I didn't even dare dream of stuff like this. Not sure how long this will last, but I plan to enjoy the ride till it does!

Also, I know few of you mentioned you are in the market for 991.1 GT3 and so thought I'd provide an actual data point in the hope that it helps someone. I transacted at $125k (car was initially listed at $137k, dropped to $133k a which point I offered $125k. Shortly thereafter, they dropped it to $129k and then took my offer).

And I guess, this post would be incomplete without a photo, so here it is from 7am this morning:



Thanks again!

Was this through a dealer or was it a private party purchase? They dropped quite a bit!

That is a great deal but also shows how well these .1s have held up depreciation wise. Enjoy the car!

Dealer. Tbh, lots of GT3s in the market and few buyers. If dealers want to move cars, they need to price right, but none seem to understand that till after they sit on it for weeks / months. Ones that are priced right, move. Also, may be dealing in a tanking stock market (end of Dec / early Jan) helped me a little?

Thanks! And yes, hopefully they continue to hold (at least relatively better than other cars)
