Yes it is. I am not a dealer but have access through a friend.

Hmmm... You can also buy a 991 turbo S for 130K but some will opt for a 993TT for 160K. Do you want to tell them 'blah blah air cooled, blah blah raw' also?

I can say for certain if that dealer is involved, there is something fishy going on. That is the same business that was "Speed Sports" previous: https://www.dealerrater.com/dealer/S...-review-27941/

I think those brief reviews speak for itself, and with the name now being changed - also, have first hand experience with this group that was not favorable in any way.

For what it’s worth:

Owned a 996 GT3 and loved it. Sold it for my current 997.1 GT3 and totally love it !

Been following everything on the 991.1 GT3 for a while now, stats, videos, reviews, the noises it makes, the drive and how much better it is than the 997 And so on.

Made an appointment at pfaff to drive one with PCCB, sport buckets, etc. I told myself I shouldn’t do this, knowing that I am going to drive the 991 and do whatever it takes to buy it! Especially with the extended warranty now !

Long story short, drove the 991 and thought to myself “my 997.1 GT3 is legit the better car”. Since that day I have zero desire to purchase a 991.1 GT3. I do feel like PDK was a big reason, although the rawness of the 997 is what is so special. The best thing about the 991 and all modern Porsche’s is how luxurious these vehicles are becoming. The companies direction is clearly focused on luxury, interior fit and finish and day to day usability rather than pure rawness. It’s evident in the entire porsche range.

I preferred the 991.2 Turbo over the my 997.1 modded Turbo and over the 991 GT3 as well: the new turbos are incredible !

These cars not only are way few in numbers, especially in Canada, but are simply way better cars when it comes to porsche Motorsport heritage period. Put a sharky track exhaust on it and it takes it to another level.

997.1 will be worth more than the 991.1 as it should be and is genuinely undervalued.

The 997.1 market has been repressed for a
While. It drives very similar to the 997.1 rs but doesn’t get that credit.

I personally think the 997.1 barrow body is also the prettiest of the series but that is subjective. It’s slinky and foxy.

It’s funny to me that people thought the gt4 would kill the interest in 997 Gt cars, then it was the 991 rs... that did t work either. Now people saying the 991.x will do it because it’s manual. I doubt it.

The 997 cars are finding their way into holder hands. The newer cars are more spec from what I can see.

Yes, I am biased but I have to agree. I was an air-cooled Porsche guy for 40+ years but this one has been life-changing.
