    retopz -

    Nice. I just bought my first Porsche a couple of weeks ago from Bellwilliam. 2006 997 base model coupe with 6-MT. 59,000 miles in beautiful condition. It is my new daily driver, having kept but retired my bought new 9 years ago (nothing ever broke, I swear) 2006 Mitsubishi Evo IX MR 6-MT with 135,000 miles. The 911 is over-engineered, no question. The Cayman GT4 looks like a killer car, but I have no interest in buying a new car for $100,000- when you can get an almost as good used car for 1/3 the price or less . . .

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    I know you didn't just compare a base 997.1 to a GT4......

    Also starting price is 84k. This car is a bargain, and I bet it increases in value if the production run is limited. Buying one down the road may very well be over 6 figures if the current P-car trends continue.

    Do you understand?

    I'd take this over a C7Z. A stripper at 90k (lightweight bucket seats) would probably provide a lot of fun. I expect 997 GT3 values to start dropping.

    Maybe, but you might have to wait 30 years for that to happen.

    Aircooled Porsches are as good as gold. Water cooled are hit or miss.

    For $84k I would rather have a used 911 turbo.
