GT silver is a really spectacular color on the GT3, and very desirable/much more limited production. Only 42 were produced in that color for NA in 10-11, as opposed to 163 black ones.

Track driving - I would echo what ilko said, with a couple caveats. Often times, cars used (occasionally) on track are better maintained than street cars, as the tires, brake pads, and other consumables are changed out more often, and the fluids are also changed regularly. Many people put extensive clearbra coverage on them as well, and never hit redline, so it's possible to buy a 'virgin' car that's been tracked. It's all about evaluating the individual car, not necessarily on its past history, e.g. length of time at the dealer, number of owners, track time, but its actual condition.

In my opinion the 2011 at $130k+ is overpriced. There were no differences in the car from 2010 to 2011. People will say that the 11s are more valuable because fewer were made, but that tends only to be true with collectors who are paying $$ just for limited production.
Thanks so much for your feedback.

It was my understanding that the silver is MY 2010 and is priced at ~133k. Do you think it is overpriced?

As far as track driving, I agree that these cars are more looked after and very well maintained. And very good point about the clear bra to protect it, I did not think about that. What about engine rebuilt? I come from the go kart world where a motor rebuild is every 10/20 hrs of use. I am talking about 18,000 rpm vs 8,500 but I was wondering what are the metrics for road cars.

Thank you very much for your input, very valuable and instructive as always on this forum! Well, I can also blame you guys for putting this GT3 bug in my head as well :-)

It looks like your account does not allow PM, or am I not understanding how to send PM through the forum?

Are we looking at the same links?
I see the 2010 being advertised at $132k vs the 2011 being at $122k. Maybe i'm missing something here.
Also isn't white Allen group a Porsche dealership as well? So I don't get the third party sell. That black car was for sale for a long time at least 6 months. Ad has just resurfaced. They probably have it for sale since March last year.

You are correct. I guess I got dyslexia when I was looking at them.

I have a US-spec 2011 GT3... Steering wheel spokes are grey.

If you have either with the gold vs red accents they are both desirable.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes people confuse rare with what looks good.

Grey black was the only rs only color of the standard colors.
