    Both are great organic food sources, the Poods are working 2 different Lion kills, a couple miles apart, this week.  Freeze/thaw making access tough but the Poods are highly motivated.

    Sun is looking back!  He's considering:

    1. a 2008 GT2
    2. a manual 2018 GT3
    3. a 2011 GT2
    4. a 2007-2011 GT3 RS [he's already had an 07 though]

    Any advice or views for Sun to consider greatly appreciated.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    If you did not have a manual GT3 , 991 , I would take that one ....... if it is not intended to be a track toy. 
    A 2008 GT2 would be a nice challenge if used on dry pavement.  
    2011 GT2 to have a tamed beast .

    Just cruising the Rockies, the season is May -October, 2 lane mountain roads, no traffic, no parking issues, so gorgeous manual box makes sense. 

    By CS do you mean another Challenge Stradale? 

    Low mile Manual tourings more expensive than manual GT3 w wings right now [$200usd vs 155 usd], and ideally Sun wants to say goodbye to centre locks. A good low miles 2008 GT2 is 195usd, IF he can find one.  A good low mile Speciale is 350usd...

     

     


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    I'm obviously biased, but I'm very happy with my 997.2RS. It's a wonderful, precise machine and I like that it's still relatively small and lightweight. kiss

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Manual plus High revving = Fun! Therefore I’d drive the 997.2 RS back to back with 991.2 GT3. Also a lightly used 981 Spyder could be lovely for touring with the roof down.

    981 Spyder -  great idea thanks.  Boy have they improved the roof operation since the previous one I owned!  I've been toying with a 2017 turbo S Cab as a summer rig, but they're ...... somehow wrongSmiley

    The wing-less 911 is always the most beautiful one. Just my opinion though. Funny enough, I prefer wing-less cars but in the case of the Performante, I think it fits the car perfectly, the normal Huracan looks...naked. Smiley I even liked the rear wing of the R8 Plus. My wife fell in love with the rear wing of the GT3 after I got my Performante, so... Smiley She drove the Lambo once for a couple of kilometers and exited it completely stressed out "this car is not drivable". Smiley 

    She wants to get a 992 Turbo S Cab as her next car but she also loves the GT3, no kidding. I doubt however she is going to want one, there is no convertible. Smiley

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Several sources have indeed confirmed it is still in the cards.

    On the subject of a Touring you've made your point quite clear many times now. One could argue that a 'wingy' is only a halfway house to an RS... but hey, it still makes sense somehow.

    @watt: There is quite some love for a 2008 GT2 here. I keep harking back to it. 

     


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Haha,

    Sun always bitched about how a non-wing GT3 was needed, but both he and Sky bought winged 991.2s....angry

    But he's folded.  Time for the most modern manual.  I doubt Sun nor Sky will ever buy another PDK.  Here it comes.

    You may already know this but the total worldwide production run for 2008/9 997GT2 was 1261 units so it is a rare bird.

    If you need any details about this model please feel free to ask I am somewhat of an anork on the subject Smiley
