The CGT is still lagging behind a few other cars and the gap between the CGT and 918 is quite huge to say the least.

nonetheless, we’re off to a good start, let’s see where it takes us this year.
As a soon to be new CGT owner, I think the big-ticket maintenance has to be priced in. That, coupled with fairly big numbers and especially big numbers in US will always hold this amazing car back. But I bought it for the experience; not the investment. There are better cars to buy for 'investment'. But there's no other high-maintenance super car I have any desire to own other than the CGT. So I look at it as entry price (plus maintenance, insurance, storage) for the experience. I don't think it will depreciate a lot but I'm under no illusion that it will be a good investment. Too many (esp in US), too difficult to drive, too much maintenance.

The only thing holding the CGT back are the ones concerned over costs and or can not operate a simple clutch system.

High maintenance is just not true nor are the high production numbers - look at the F40 production and maintenance 50k is a drop in the bucket whereas 1/2 that on the CGT covers 30k miles and 15 years minimum.

CGT is the least expensive drivers car alive it's also 100% bespoke unlike the Enzo who shares the same engine with a 150k 599 or it's big brother the 599GTO that is priced at 700k.

Congrats on your purchase.

For the crowd that is used to other Porsche products, it's high maintenance but agree the old Ferrari's are every bit as bad and usually worse. A 997 4.0 or 2rs is like owning a Prius practically. We get spoiled. But the same thing that makes the GT/rare 911s bullet proof and cheap to maintain is the same thing that makes them not as special as a CGT: ones the best of a mass produced product, the other a truly bespoke engineering marvel. It was my final box to check in collection. I'm looking fwd to taking delivery from a good friend who got to experience it and ready to pass along.

In regards to maintenance, it varies across the different makes and models. From my experience, the most expensive cars to maintain are usually the rarer ones built by smaller companies.

In comparison, you can easily spend $50,000 on an XJ220 major service, which involves replacing the fuel tanks, clutch and the list goes on.

My CGT is currently in for a service and I’m being picky, even with my extensive list of “to-do’s”, it still isn’t anywhere near as expensive as servicing the F40.

My last F40 major service bill was $8700.

That’s having them serviced at the official dealers.

It’s all a price to pay for exclusivity and I think some marques play on that. It really isn’t much different from servicing some other Supercar, if anything, the Lamborghini’s are even more complicated and harder to work on and end up being much cheaper.

Thats me talking from from my personal experience.

Understand but it's a Porsche Super car -driven and maintained properly full engine clutch misc. $25 - $35k every 30 - 40,000 miles 10 - 15 years isn't bad.

959 heard stories of 100k.

918 - that's headed to a whole new level not if but when.

Congrats!

If you can afford a $600k or $700k car, you shouldn't worry about a $30k service.

Not me. I get no enjoyment out of watching values but driving the car. The car value going up significantly will only negatively impact the amount of usage I will use the car for. I'd be much happier tbh if we reverted back to 2013-2014 prices which were reasonably high but semi sensible and I felt much less constrained in using it.

Always thought the thread was for perspective buyers bonus posts towards understanding the CGT.

While the car sits during winter it's fun to see market exchanges but agree the more value the more ornamental. Started and moved it around washed just amazing when I compare build quality against the other cars.
