Default “Porsche 911 GT3 Price Drop”

I now get at least 3-4 emails per week (sometimes twice of that) from cargurus with “price drop” alerts for the GT3s. I have saved searches in their app that lets me get price changes. The longer I wait the lower the prices are getting.

My local dealer has cars that havent moved even at MSRP for over 4-5 months.

Last time I checked, this is a discussion forum not stackoverflow or quora. So no there is no question, its an FYI for others.

The longer you wait, the lower the prices get. That's true.

Meanwhile, you're not enjoying a GT3.

Well if I bought a GT3 6 months ago, I would have had to pay $30,000 more on average (at least where I live).

I would choose waiting 6 months to paying $30k extra. That $30k will pay for exhaust, wheels, tires, track time, and some more.

Meanwhile I've had 3 dealers offer me close to sticker for mine. $187K MSRP, was offered 175, 180, and 183. I've decided to just keep it for now since I know I'd miss the manual transmission.

Yep, guys, a GT3 is a car to enjoy and it is awesome, but when did people think that it wouldn't depreciate? See 991.1 GT3's as a reference. And to the OP, my local dealer is still selling used 991.2 GT's for quite a bit over MSRP just fine. Also, as an aside, not sure where they find these guys, lol.

Because everyone thinks the only people that buy GT cars are on this forum....my guess is there are more GT owners NOT on this forum than owners that are.....

The car is going to depreciate, what a effin epiphany! Buy it now, have fun! Buy it later, for less, have fun! Buy GT3, with ADM, in hopes of making money, while not driving it? No have any fun. Simple equation really
