In a year or so a 3 year old McLaren will be worth in the neighbourhood of 150k. HP has recently been increased to 616 and the car is now a land missile,
Something to consider. Other option for next year is the F Scud. With a good setup it's a great track weapon, and the sound can't be beat. Last option is
997 GT2, very few available and prices holding firm and or climbing a little.

^ Thought about the F Scud too, but it's getting on in years, and servicing it scares me. That being said, that price point makes me also look back at the Ford GT (I just love that thing) and I'd even consider an SLS GT (I don't know why, but I just really like it even though it chews through tires in no time).

I'm optimistic about the GT3, having owned a 991S for a while now. I think Porsche will deliver a fantastic car. Maybe not as raw as the 997 or 996 versions, but a track car that thrills in different ways.

PS. Cool video!
