    GT3 mk2 or GT3 RS

    I am thinking to buy a used GT3.
    Do you think the RS worth the extra money?
    I am going to use it mainly on the street.
    The RS performance is it much greater than the normal?
    Do you think the RS will hold the value better?

    Re: GT3 mk2 or GT3 RS

    I too have the same problem and I can answer you with the following;

    1) Performance extra is marginal. A great driver in a standard GT3 will hose an average driver in a GT3 RS.

    2) Image - If you are drop dead in love with the look of the coloured wheels and the carbon wing + the decals. Then buy the RS as this ignites passion. Also the Carbon wing makes for a great book shelf in the garage??

    3) The values - I believe both are going to continue to drop over the next 5 years. However, the RS will definately start to climb in value heading towards the 10 year mark and it will have a worldwide value past 10 years. I also believe the standard GT3 will stop at a lower level and will never go up.

    4) Finally, I think when both th cars were new it was difficult to see the advantage in the RS for the extra money. But now that gap has gotten closer together it make the RS far more attractive.

    Good luck with your decision....

    By the Way..

    What would be the price differential???

    Re: GT3 mk2 or GT3 RS

    I see your profile says you are in the USA.

    There are only a handful of real GT3 RS in the USA as it was never imported. Buyer beware, as these may have been modified in order to be homologated.

    But in the USA a real GT3 RS is a very special car - but they are selling for around 160-70 and pre-titled.

    Buyer beware. For that price, just wait a few months and get the proper 997 RS that WILL be imported to the states.

    Wow! In Europe you can get 996 GT3 RS with under 10.000 km for under Euro 100.000 incl VAT.

    Maybe you buy a car in Europe and transfer it to the USA?

    the cost of converting one to DOT spec would be prohibitively costly... you could convert a "normal" gt3 to a much better car with only a fraction of the cost -

    rollcage, fire system, lightweight track rims, moton clubsports... and lightening...
