Default WHICH TO BUY? 2018 GT2 RS / 2018 TURBO S EXCLUSIVE / 2018 GT3 6spd

Thinking leaving a deposit on one of these 3 upcoming cars.
They will all cost me above MSRP.
I'm not sure which is the best car given I like comfort plus power

The Turbo S seems to be the best of both worlds but the GT3 has the 6spd manual transmission which I feel is going to make it a fun driving car.

Anyone think one of these will be a better option than the others?

GT2RS: from $293,200
GT3: from $143,600
Turbo S exclusive: from $257,500


I would choose the best car for the intended purpose, and which would be likely to put the biggest smile on your face, and which best fits your budget.


If the intended purpose is to collect drool samples at your local Cars & Coffee, pick the most outlandish one. If you want to rule at the local track, pick the one with the best lap times. If you want the best resale value, pick the rarest one.


For those prices though, you have your pick of a lot of other cars. I know it's sacrilege to mention non-Porsche here, but you could get a Ferrari F430 for ~$110K or a Lamborghini Huracan for ~$200k. If you're not tracking the car, those would probably draw more attention.


For that matter, you could get a stable-full of used P-cars for those prices, and wouldn't have to worry about depreciation as much.

Depends on your intentions!? If you're a garage queen.... then that's the obvious choice. If you're gonna track or a wknd warrior then the GT3 will suffice.

To the OP, - you are comparing a pear vs an apple vs an orange, all very different Porsche 911s.
For me, with >95 % of my driving on the street, i want certain options not available on either GT3, like full leather with ventilated seats, sunroof, parking sensors, backup camera, keyless entry. PDCC is my choice, because i can have my suspension the way I want it, not stuck in harsh ride mode for rough pavement for every mile I drive.
Now, if track were my priority and i didn't care about any of those options, id choose the 500 Hp GT3. It's as fast or faster than the 991.1 GT3 RS but two years newer, probably brand new, with worthwhile updates, and it looks better to me. I don't like the black fender vents on all 4 corners of the GT3 RS.
You asked for our opinions. Everybody is different. I'm a Porsche owner since 1970. This is my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

Rather than start a new thread, I'll just jump on this one. I'm looking for a low option manual. I have found one for sale in the entire country and it a cpo and 10K adm. I would like to get closer to MSRP. I would be happy with buckets or standard seats heated, the lift, and low cost options like extended range tank. Please comment, rude remarks about my lack of class, and how I'm too dumb to find all the cars for sale, all welcome! Oh, and I don't want the no cost wing/aero delete, haha.

I did not buy a new Ferrari or Lambo since I could not get a manual so you know what my choice is, and if you feel as strongly as I do you know what to get.

The GT3 would be the only car I'd get out of the three, based on pure value for money and the fact you can row your own gears! That being said, 2RS prices seem to be declining from when dealers were asking $200k over...to about 120k over. Lol.

The GT2 RS is the best of both worlds in this trio, so that's the winner, but in determining between Turbo S / GT3 I would say that is purely dependent on if you want the extra comfort in the Turbo S, and extra power in the Turbo S, or if you want to strip that goodness out of the Turbo S and throw a spoiler on to have the GT3.

1 - GT2 RS.
2 - Turbo S
3 - GT3 6 speed
