Not today...but nice, low mileage 997.1s were once ~$75k, and 997.2 RSs ~$125k. They all go down before they go up, and the 991 will follow the trend.

Following BMW M and MB AMG into the branding abyss of fast, boring cars and SUVs...it's the slippery slope that ends in fully autonomous vehicles made by non-car companies. Sucks.

I know Porsche is most likely mum on the subject of future vehicles, but will we see this engine again before the 992 GT3? Along those lines, is this the last 991 iteration?

And will you make it...

These photos came out after we saw Speedster prototypes.

GT3 Cabrio is coming. Maybe still as a 991; definitely as a 992. Porsche said so a couple weeks back (if not in so many words).

I would argue that any car with PASM cannot be called 'analog'; that the 996 GT3 is the last analog GT car, and the 987 Spyder/R are the last 'focused' analog Porsches.
