    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Different situation in Germany. 991 are in demand.Used car prices went upwards. And new cars are rare. Not easy to find the car you are looking for. Dealer told me that clients from Portugal and Italy are buying many of the available cars. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I see tons of 991 lately. Two years ago, I saw many 997, not anymore (with the exception of Cabs). Also haven't seen any 996 for a while...even buyers looking for a "cheap" 911 are avoiding the 996.

    Without having researched the used-car market for 996 GT2s I would venture the guess that this model (and the corresponding GT3 models) is not suffering from the same lack of interest as the bread-and-butter 996s, due to not having the same engine.    Smiley

    Doesn't the 996 Turbo have the "same" engine too? But too many built for it to keep value.

    The 996 GT3 RS is highly sought after. Only 600 built and considered by some to be the most "raw" RS.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    The 996 RS is an amazing car, but before their demand went through the roof. I drove 3 different cars, 3 times to convince myself. The car is an absolute animal. It's the rawest GT3 for sure. I wish I had driven every other RS to compare, but I have not had the privilege yet! enlightened

    Agnesenhof seems to be nice but it was fully booked...

    I'm on a trip with the family and are staying in Ernst (Mosel) from Saturday to Sunday so we will drive directly up to Nürburgring in the morning.

    Will you be in Black Falcons box?

    Yeah, that is a great car.  We never had them imported here Smiley

    The first RS we ever imported legally here was the 997.1 GT3 RS and we needed it since they made 991.1 GT3 for the US market with a sunroof Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I sold my 996 GT3 RS last year. And bought my 991 GT3 RS with the money. But I think now that that was a mistake. Yes the 991 is better looking, but the 996 is rougher.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    A bit off topic, but I do follow a (private) offer for a used 997 GT3 RS II - asking price started with EUR 249k half a year ago, EUR 219k 3 months later and now EUR189k...very weird...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I never trust asking prices. One example in the Ferrari world: a 2009 612 18k miles is offered at $129k when slightly lower miles ones are rumored to trade around $175k and asking at $185k... Go figure. Same for the FF. Asking are all over the place (saw a 2014 at $275k when they trade at $200k or less).

    The only real sale I know of is my dealer paying $200k premium for each of the  2 Rs allocated to his 918 owners.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Good grief.. Wonder what he is hoping to sell them for..

    I think someone linked an eBay auction for one starting st $1m

    I'd take the money and run as much as I like the R...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I was talking to Rolls salesman last week about how had a customer who had asked him to source him a 991R.  He said the best price he had been able to buy one for was £480k. I don't believe he had any reason to make that up and given GT3RS were readily changing hands in the UK when first released for £275+ it would seem within the realm of possibility.  However £1M?  I don't know about that - its a huge leap of faith if you ask me and could just be that the owner of Magnitude Finance (who was interviewed for the article) owns one!

    For whatever reason however, the UK market seems to be a even more bonkers on these types of cars than the rest of the world.  If the brexitmongers are right then there is going to some heavily burnt fingers as and when the market corrects.
