I’d probably take a 488. What stands out for me with Porsche is that you can still get a manual GT car. If I were to get a dual clutch, it would probably be an F car. They are just too beautiful. What you should do is sell the f430 spider and combine that money with the 488 money and get a 458 Speciale

488 fast, soft, no emotion, bad sound.

991.1 RS for me
or 458 Speciale if you dont track or push your car.

Based on 488 Euro sales of approx 5400 units my bet is there are at least 7000 488 produced for US. ... and we have guys carrying on here that 1300 or so .2 3RS is a lot. Lol


F8 is beautiful. Likely 7000 US units again. However, it torpedoes the Pista. Pista values may drop.

New 992 GT3 coming within a year. Looks wild and ANGRY. 550hp.

New 3RS soon to follow. Likely 575hp and will look even ANGRIER.

RS doesn't make sense if you don't plan to track it. I'd get a GT3 Touring just to be different to what you have. Manual, no wing, great street/canyon car.

If its between an RS or 488 for street use only - 488 for sure.

488s are relatively cheap now as there are a ton for sale. F8s will be ~80k+ more and I doubt it will he worth it.

Source please. How does the F8 "torpedo" the Pista?

Pista and F8 have very similar specs. Pista trading for more I believe. Why pay more if you can get the same for less????

Disagree?
Source please.

Agree, performance and the looks of the F8 will be similar to the Pista. The days of Ferrari’s special cars skyrocketing in price are over. Ferrari is now producing more cars and more quickly to make profit for its stock holders, and to keep up with the competition like Mclaren.

It will be interesting to watch the prices on the Pista when the F8 and the F8’s special edition hits the streets.

Im in a similar boat as you, at first it was the 991.2 GT3 vs the 991.1 GT3RS and now my quest has expanded to looking at .2 gt3rs or a 2016 488 - both are holding similar used values in my market (Dubai).

I am looking to hold onto the car for the next 5 years, so that makes me think the .2RS will hold better value, but the remaining 7yr warranty/service is so appealing...

Bump for maybe some more comments.

I am leaning more to the .2RS for the pure insanity of the JCR Titanium race exhaust.

A 458 Speciale is one of the most glorious things I've seen and heard in the flesh. Not sure where they are trading at but would have one all day over a 488.

Listen to your Dr!
458 Speciale

.2 3RS is a car I have driven on track and aggressively on beautiful roads. It is a true weapon and it is very hard to break it. It is German engineering at its best vs the style and flair of the Italians.

Comparing the 3RS to a Speciale makes sense, but a 488 not so much. There will be no shortage of flappy paddle turbo cars and they will only get faster.

one thing is for sure, if I were going to drive her often I would worry about things breaking on a Speciale as those bills must hurt. RS will have warranty and is made to be a track warrior.

I agree. Pista trades over list in the UK and that will likely end soon.

The Pista in the flesh does look incredible though. I don’t see the bottom falling out by any means, unless the F8 and drop top come very soon.

Most F cars are gorgeous. They just don't turn my crank for some reason.

Non warranty service costs excluded, the cost of ownership of a Pista will most certainly be lower than cost of ownership of an F8. The Pista will follow the Speciale depreciation curve while the F8 will follow the 488. The limited edition V8 cars will always be more desirable/valuable than the regular production cars that succeed them. There's a difference between cost to acquire and cost to own.

On the OP's question, I agree on the track vs no track comments. The RS is incredible but less practical for daily and non-track use. The acceleration differences massively favor the 488 and for fun street use that is very appealing to most.

Some might say 488 just another Ferrari. Far more 488s than 991 RSs in US.

How could anyone say this is just another 911?

Not to my eyes
