Guys I am really leaning to getting the 4.0. I am a GT3 guy at heart and this one is specced by me. I will keep everyone informed.

As to your question "who has first crack at it." I would ask a premium price and see who shows up with the money first. You can always lower the price, but you can't raise it once it is sold.

Good luck and enjoy the 4.0.

I don't think its so much the numbers, more the Cashmere interior. Personally, with the right exterior color, I think it looks good.

Interesting way to look at it.

GYMGUY,

I really appreciate your dilemma. The 997.2 RS 4.0 is an amazing car, fer sure. With only 12k miles on your C2S, its pretty obvious that you don't plan on driving either car much. How WILL you use that RS? It is really a nice track car that is fairly nasty for the street. Surely you wont track it, and probably it will become a garage queen, like the C2S.

There will be many RS 4.0s for sale in the future, when the 991 GT3 arrives. Meanwhile, your C2S is very rare and highly sought after. Probably not replaceable.

I love the GT3 series as well, but would never exchange Rufus for one. I think you should keep the C2S.

Oh, I'm just joking around. I apologize for any hurt feelings. I'll come around and wax any giant wings on every 800 horse street cars to make up for it. Deal?

Yes, I think you should sell it because after all you’re just a poser and not a purist. I remember when you posted the car for the first time you were like Jo Jo the circus monkey. Touting it was your dream car and you wanted it since you were a pup. What a joke!!!! I told my friend you would sell the car in less than six months and sure enough I was right. I remember you were the guy who beat up the old guy selling it at the time, if the fellow purist who sold it to you knew you were dumping it, I’m sure he would have had second thoughts. So go ahead make us all happy and make your $5000.00 and dump it. You are all about the show...............MAM

ouch, don't hold back and tell us how you really feel. I sorta see where you're coming from though having followed the previous threads.

Wilhoit is in the house!

Did you see that?
- That was your and my chance of ever owning this car fly out the window.

Did you hear that?
- That was the sound of the truck pulling up to Wilhoit's mansion, taking this car to the boat to be shipped overseas.

Funny, when I called him out more jokingly, I got heat for it. But when someone comes after him guns a-blazing, here comes the Cavalry

There is some truth, even though it was kinda harsh, to what MAM said.

Some people are all about having what they want and are never satisfied. Some realize there may be more value not to having what you want, but wanting what you already have.

The OP can do what he wants, of course. It's his car! But I think I'm not too far off the mark that the 4.0 RS will also be a short stay in satisified-land. It's the nature of the beast.
