Very interesting, not what I have seen on the track with non scud Ferrari's.
The blue car is beautiful! Love the interior and they are roomy as well!
How much track did you do in a year?

Thanks. So far with this car, I have done about 400 track miles in the past two weekends at COTA. In my Challenge car about 2k track miles last year. In my 2010 RS I had 1500 track miles last year.

Scuds are super reliable on street use. I put about 10k miles in my scud and 10 k in my f430. Both were perfect zero issues. The clutch life after 11k was still at 79% left , you don't change it until below 40%.

I also owned a 997.2 Gt3 , great track car . But for street use i find Ferrari more exciting. I haven't driven a 991 gt3 but based on reviews it looks like a lot of fun. Good luck ! you cant go terribly wrong with either one of them.

I would like to hear more about a Scud vs 991 GT3 comparison. I am tossing the idea back and forth as there is no GT3 in sight.

Your F1 transmission light came on when we were at COTA. What was the cause of that?

FYI - You have your residuals backwards. The Scuderia isn't going to depreciate much more while a new Porsche will depreciate for sure.

IMHO If you plan to track then a GT3 is much better choice than a Scuderia. The Scuderia is ideal for street use and once a year DE use. The CCB are pricey. I feel that service costs will limit somebody who is looking in the $150K range.

In that price range, I would look for a 2012 McLaren. You get DCT, steel brakes and a 3 yr. warranty. You should be good to go.

Because that's what Mclaren gives...you can have it extended as well.

It doesn't have three years of warranty remaining, but then again, until the GT3 crisis is resolved, this forum is all about half-truths and speculation.
