    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    SciFrog:

    The GT4 is the best value by far since Porsche mispriced it... Surely they won't make that mistake again...

    The weight difference between the GT4 and GT3 is even less if you consider the GT3 has PDK and AWS... As said before, Porsche did not make great efforts to make the GT4 and the Spyder lighter...

    It is not the GT4 which is mispriced, it is the 98x model range in relation to the 911 which is mispriced. I guess one could argue that it is the 911 which is mispriced, but it seem to sell like hot cakes anyway.

    IMHO the GT4 is priced exactly where it should be. Porsche could not charge more without the GT3 engine and PDK-S, but it would make no sense to add these components since it would put it too close to the GT3. The GT4 has filled an empty niche in Porsche's lineup and the price is spot on.

    Regarding the weight, except for the 918, there were not more effort on reducing the weight on the GT3 and RS either. Porsche would have to resort to more exotic materials to shed weight and this would significantly inflate the cost on all GT cars. Who would buy a $200k carbon fibre GT4? For sure not the current targe owner group.

    The weight difference seem pretty much spot on to me if you add PDK-S, RWS, larger wheels and a larger chassis for the GT3.

    The GT3 is fairly priced. The other 991 models aren't...

    Can't argue with that. But wish there was a manual version for $7k less (or whatever PDK-S option would cost).
