Anyway you have chosen a very nice toy, enjoy!

Yes values are crazy at the moment because of the supply and demand of them. A decent spec GT3RS at around 150k are between 200k and 220k. 911R sillier still at around 400k. I paid 136k for this car and ive heard of people offering up to 200k for them which is nice but I bought this car to own and drive not to flip. Add to the fact that I still want to be buying Porsche GT products in the future that my chance would be zero if I flipped this car

Sweet ride, like, really sweet!


Those carbon bits in the seats, are they comfortable? Wondered if a taller person would find them digging in their back? Not sure i'd want carbon so near the back of my neck in the event of a crash, if those headrests get ripped off, shattered carbon would could your head straight off. Cheery thought for the day

Never looked at it that way but as the whole seat is made from carbon I think its pretty strong. If anything ever happened that the seat broke I think that it would be quite a big accident and I would be dead anyway

One word for the car
Delightful....
Are you likely to track the car at all?
Just got back from the Nurburgring recently and it was pure Porsche heaven.
Every other car seemed to be a Porsche but that's not a bad thing...!
Congrats.

Stunning car. Apart from that 1 tacky carbon panel on the right of the steering wheel, once you see it you canít un see it.

Very nice. Do Porsche keep tabs on their customers' flipping behaviour to control admission to the inner circle? Incredible brand power that they can not only charge what they do but control markets like this. I'm just worried that bubbles burst, but expensive cars remain gravity defying. Until they don't.

I tried my hardest to get a build slot, no chance, had to have owned at least 4 cars bought new from that particular dealer, I had bought only one.


I get that's its part of their customer relations plan but we all know that's not always how it works.


when the new GT4 comes out and makes the first generation drop a bit Ill pick one of those up. (still looking for sapphire blue with the buckets and PCCB.)


beautiful car though mate and it puzzles me how they keep getting better and better.

I would pay you good money just to park that on my driveway so I could look at it any time I wanted.

Let down by just one essential feature - no real handbrake!

Health to enjoy - she who owns half of everything I own, would never approve the investment in something as fun as a GT3.

Have you actually taken her to see one in the flesh?


My GF wasn't into cars at all when I met her. Hated going fast. Slowly but surely she's coming round, and getting to know cars and being able to differentiate between the basic models, and the cooking versions.


Called into the new Porsche dealership in Teesside the other week. They had a gorgeous Grey 991.1 GT3 in stock. Walking up to it, she commented that it looked stunning.


Her words as we left the dealership were, "If you bought that GT3, I really wouldn't mind at all". Yup, she's firmly coming round

Sorry to be the party pooper. I love cars but porsche never have done it for me.

Prefer the exotica that unfortunately breaks down.lol

Be nice if the italians can sort that. Utter stunners but a bit iffy.

Enjoy it though!

Absolutely fantastic mate, very jealous indeed. Sorry to detract from your beautiful toy but I'd value your opinion.

Is that Carrara white or flat white? Looking to replace my stolen turbo and I've come across one that has the spec I want but is flat white. Can't make my mind up whether flat white is cool in a minimalist kind of way or boring!

What do you think?

Itís neither itís crayon, a light grey

White looks good on a GT3 but still looks good on a turbo. I canít stand that pansy metallic white colour, that colour should stay on Audiís and not make its way on to a Porsche
