    Someone is backing out, might be able to get an RS

    Was contacted by porsche fleet manager and he says I will get first dibbs on an RS preorder at MRSP, looks like someone is backing out. Problem is I've got a 997 C2S cab and a GT3. Need to get rid of one. I like both cars, but can't see myself giving up the GT3, but do I need two of essentially the same car . I recently seen a RS last weekend and it blew my mind. Just recently sold the M3. Took a serious hit . Any advice? Keep the cab or keep the GT3?

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get an RS

    Grab that RS opportunity asap. Keep the cab, both for $$ reasons and also to avoid GT3 redundancy.

    If you sell the cabrio, you may lose $20K+ off original MSRP. If you sell the GT3 now you will take very little hit as far as depreciation.

    Do you get a tax offset for doing a dealer trade-in? If so, see if your dealer will allow you to find a private buyer for your GT3 (I would guess finding a GT3 buyer will take only a matter of days-- at least in the here and now, you could probably expect 95% or more of original MSRP), sounds like your dealer is a good sort, see if they will run the GT3 sale 'through the dealer' which would technically make it a trade-in. (perfectly legal, just a paperwork shuffle with dealer owning the car momentarily.....I did this with my first 997-- my transaction was in Ohio-- Ohio BMV actually gives one year from trade-in date to take delivery of the new car and only pay sales tax on the $ overage, saved me around $6500 in taxes to pass the sale through the dealer).

    From talking to several people who have spent decent seat time in both GT3 and GT3RS , the regular GT3 is a dream-- the RS is like a GT3 with permanent shot of adrenaline.
    Sounds like quite a long strange trip from your Bimmer M3!

    What color RS you thinking of? if you want to stick with carrara white, the white with black graphics would be sweet...

    I would simply give me your GT3 to avoid redundancy.

    Ditto

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get a

    Move the GT3 quickly and roll the tax deal. If you're driving a GT3 you might as well go all the way to the RS.

    Good luck pulling this off! Color?

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get a

    If you are doing lots of track days & using the cars full potential get the Rs, if not stick with the standard GT3 there is very little between them in reality, the RS is a touch better on track the standard Gt3 better on road. When it comes down to looks thats personal, I don't like the RS (it is too flashy & OTT for me) but many others love it!
    Clearly keeping an RS & GT3 makes ZERO sense!
    Nice choice to be able to make though!

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get a

    Just get the RS... sort the rest out later... if you miss the RS you'll be pizzed!
    take your time and decide on which to sell

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get a

    Trade in the GT3... you should be able to get close to MSRP as a trade number...

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get a

    I would trade the GT3 too. Good luck. The tough decisions of life.

    So when can I expect delivery?

    Re: Someone is backing out, might be able to get a

    I going to keep all three cars, and getting rid of my girlfriend. Can't afford to keep all of them.
