    After reading several threats on TT vs GT3 I would like to share my own dilemma. I am moving back to Germany later this year and am faced with making a decision about my S2 Elise (mainly used for track days). I am pretty sure that I will get a 911 when going back. It will either be a 996TT or MK2 GT3. Now, Iin my mind I have 3 options to consider (unless someone else can add one):

    1.) Sell the Elise and get the GT3 as a everyday car and also for track day use. Unclear if it should be a normal or CS version

    2.) Get a Honda engine upgrade for the Elise and keep it as a dedicated track day tool (assuming the TÜV likes the idea). Get a TT as my everyday runner.

    3.) Keep the Elise as a is and uses it as a Sunday morning car. And get the GT3 for everyday use.

    I have no idea how much driving I will do in Germany but it would certainly be below 20K Km. Don't think that I would be too worried about the suspension set up of a GT3 (my Elise has a pretty hard set-up as well). The only reason I would consider a TT under Option 2.) is that I guess one focused track car is enough and the TT is a great cruiser and given the 4 wheel drive I can go all year around everywhere, and maybe because it is a little more "plush" . The Honda engine Elise can keep up with most 911s on most tracks (unless there are to many straights).

    Well anyway this is my dilemma and would be great to learn some comments and thoughts from you guys



    Re: Decisions...

    If I lived in Europe like you, I'd get the GT3RS for sure. That's the one that will be the most fun and hold its value the best. Much more fun than a TT. Sell the Elise and buy something else for everyday (993 perhaps)

    Re: Decisions...

    tough one

    Re: Decisions...

    I'd sell the Elise and get a Mk2 GT3 or GT3 RS and drive to the track. This relieves you of the hassle of getting TUV approval of the the Honda engine swap and get you in a timeless classic rear engined Porsche.
