New Member - 991.1 GT3RS
 
After six months of searching I found the one. Not new to the Porsche club but this is my first non-turbo Porsche. Also, long time member of 6speed but new here. Anyhow, I cannot stress enough how much I enjoy this car. Maybe these opinions will sway another future member who also spends way to much time reading forum threads. I am a weekend, sunny day driver only with this car. Might as well get some extra enjoyment by chatting with fellow enthusiast. FWIW, I am not embarrassed to share why I made this decision. First what was not important to me - 0-60, quarter mile, top speed, and track time. I certainly enjoy reading about those things and suppose get some level of satisfaction knowing its capabilities, but I am not going to tack the car. For me it boiled down to its presence, fit & finish, driving experience, sound and options. Coming from a new Huracan that I owned for two years, so have that experience too. It is certainly a very capable car in its own right. The RS is special, the way it looks, how it sounds, drives, and the fit and finish is excellent. I am thrilled at how planted it is on the road, while not feeling too harsh. If you are on the fence about this model, I can attest it is simply amazing. I realize everyone says that about their car; however, it really is. It is easy to get caught up in comparing the latest generation when making decisions, but depending on what your objectives are and budget, it can distract from the reality that it is still amazing. My must haves were - lava orange, <3k miles, PCCB, lift, full leather, deviated stitching, lava seatbelts, carbon interior package, light weight bucket seats, not tracked, still under warranty, clear bra from new and cared for how I would. Narrows the search down when all these are factored in.

Cheers!

Please pardon the pic, I know the lift is up, but I just pulled it into the driveway.
