If you are worried about depreciation bump up to the 997.2 RS. It's a favorite among many and still has fairly low production numbers.

Been a fan of P cars since a young kid.. It's sad to see all of the appreciation/depreciation talk keeping cars garaged.
I'm specifically looking for a 997.1 GT3 since the prices have gotten so low, so now they're attainable for my budget.

This new crop of IG Porsche fanatics could care less about "Last of Mezger" engines.. They probably have no clue who he was or his significance to GT cars.
They purely want the latest and greatest for likes and doing donuts on ACH every weekend, for youtube content.

I do however think the GT2RS car with extremely low miles will fetch a pretty penny in the future. Kind of hard to gauge because I live in LA and I see them driven around normally so the "Allure" of it has kind of wore off IMHO.

I've seen (1) McLaren F1 in my lifetime in LA and I've seen (2) GT2RS cars within a week..

Here in NY, I see 991 GT3 RS and 991 GT2 RS weekly.
I never see 997 GT3 RS.

most ppl simply do not understand it.

you didn't now discuss your time horizon, your used of the car (mileage matters)...
are u holding it for 10, 15, 35 years?
will u b around to enjoy the appreciation or suffer from the depreciation?

I know, right?! It’s really sad man.
-buy 997rs
- drive it for 20 years/100k miles - pure joy - value: 90k
-garage it for 20 years/5k miles - die anyways - value: ****ty step kids split the Barrett Jackson profits of 250k cuz ur ****ing dead

bc 997 is not a car to drive. it's a toy to play with.
and many ppl are too lazy to play with toy, they just want a car that is COOL for now.
I love my 991RS/GT3 as well. but 997 is under the skin kind of love

The true value from these cars comes from seeing the odometer rise. Money doesn’t buy happiness. It is what you do with it that does.

I'm new to the forum and searching for a higher mileage 997.1 which fits my budget.

There is a clean white 2007 with almost 50k miles local to me. It's stock and seller is second owner. No overrevs.

Thoughts of a reasonable target purchase price?

Thanks

If the original MSRP was somewhere around $120K or lower, I'd guess low to mid $80's.
