Depends on the intended purpose of the road car. If only used occasionally on a perfect day and you want maximum experience, the extreme characteristics of the RS's are impactful. If it's a quasi-dd,...

I like the yellow-jacket. Mine build is close, but black wheels and steels.

Gearing seems relatively the same in 997.1 gt3, 997.1 GT3RS and 997.2 gt3. 997.2 GT3RS and 4.0 have shorter gearing. Not sure if there are subtle differences in between?

Just curious, can you put those same long tubes on a .2rs?

Edit: actually I'm just poking. I don't care; it's just the same comments over and over when any new model comes out.

I drove the 981 spyder last night and turned around early. The thrill has petered out enough that I could tell it was the last drive. This happened a couple mos ago but i changed mind. 2x in last...

I had a cop once pull me over for going insanely over the speed limit. He proceeded to tell me my Mas QP was a v12. I started to correct him as we opened the hood to look at it and realized, this man...

Manual 991 GT3 took some wind out of the sails of 997rs market. I'm saying that as an owner of two. Maybe it's just overall car mkt and 911 mkt being weaker? But i think some of it is a little extra...

I don't think it will be hard to sell your 997 for similar levels, including tax uplift, down the road. Keep both and see if you think they are redundant. 997 and 991 materially different drive...

997 4.0 not only is an awesome drive experience. Somehow it is universally adored by all Porsche nuts to a level that may even exceed reality. I'd say 73rs and 997 4.0 are the crowd favorites whether...

If I was in your shoes I'd do the same thing. You will have the chance to see a dozen WP trade-ins at some point. I'd get the earliest LG I could get my hands on, period. For an individual that...

What limited experience I have in fcars, I'd agree they are more fun to drive at lower speeds/rpms and less exciting at the extreme/redline vs a p-GT.

On Harris' comment above: of course new touring is better than the 7yr old 4.0. Every RS/GT product made is better than the 73rs or original R. The 992 will be better than the 991.

The 997 4.0 is...

Ditto. Nothing to do with weight. I'm not ashamed to admit I checked it because it looked cool and different from the experience I had with my last UV 991.1rs. Come on, people are paying almost as...

I never claimed Porsche was running their pts program well. They've botched that; they continue to over-promise and under-deliver. We agree on that. My assessment on the pts premium is spot on and...

The fact the fact that you got a pastel orange is part of what I'm talking about (probably the part you agree with?). In years past (pre 991), not only was Lava not available, getting pts in a GT was...

I cant believe how insane PTS premium got 2-3yrs ago. And I can't believe how quickly the air came out of the balloon w/in last 12 mos. It got crazy silly. On the 991.1, this would have been snatched...
