At the end of the day, go with whatever floats your boat. We spend an arm and a left nut buying these cars so the car must satisfy u!! I will re-visit the 991 once they release their GT3 variant.
I test drove the 991 about 4 times, I was kinda disappointed with the car in the first 2 drives, but then I was able to take it on a couple REAL test drives and I finally understood what a fine piece of machinery Porsche has developed. I just do not feel its worth 119k. Instead I bought something that looks and feels expensive, and priced similarly a 2011 r8 v10.
