    Owning a 997tt and a GT3, good idea?

    My father jsut got a 996 GT3 but he seems to be still set on getting a 997tt something I think he shouldn't do right now but what can I do but try to convince him.
    Question: Is it a good idea to have both these cars?
    Two issue I have with it: Are they different enough as to offer a unique driving experience when you get in each, or is owning 2 911's at once when you could own 1 911 and something else silly. I've always had the philosophy that if you could own two cars you should rather own two that are more different so each time you get in the car its not like being in the other one. I would prefer him to keep the 996 GT3 and then see what options there are within the next year whether it be the V10 R8 Audi, Lotus Esprit or some other options.
    The other issue is is the turbo still the best in class, thats opinion obviously but i'd like to know what you think about it.

    Lol buy something else... not to similar cars...

    Re: Owning a 997tt and a GT3, good idea?

    Would he consider a Performance Sedan? I just picked up an 07' S6 as my daily drive and love it. My 997TT only comes out on sunny days.

    Re: Owning a 997tt and a GT3, good idea?

    In an ideal world, I'd own a GT3 for the Track and the Turbs for every thing in between.

    You sound like you have a good problem to have.

    Nick, stop with the incessant Porsche bashing. Just because you decided to pass on the 997TT doesn't mean everybody else should.

    The TT and the GT3 are two different machines. The GT3 is lighter, RWD, more nimble and naturally aspirated, while the Turbo is heavier, more powerful and turbocharged, plus it has AWD. They may be similar in shape, but are different in character.

    Exactly!! Nothing wrong with having those two cars at all. Many of our customers do just that... track the GT3, and drive the turbo to the grocery store... very quickly...

    Re: Owning a 997tt and a GT3, good idea?

    I have a 997TT, and a GT3 RS on order. VERY different cars. One for the road (and wet track at times) and one for the track mostly.
