nberry, it makes sense to buy a 911 R because there are idiots out there who will probably pay you a $50-100K premium the day you take delivery for a special edition. In that sense, the 911 R is better value that just about everything else because just about everything else will be worth $50K less the day you take delivery.

Resale will be interesting. If what people on here said is true, a GT3 with wing-delete and manual is coming with the 991.2 GT3, so I really can't see how a 911 R would carry much premium at all once that gets announced. The 911 R will essentially become just a worse 991.2 GT3.
