These cars will be FIRST available to anyone purchasing a 918 Spyder, so you can be sure a lot of them will end up a collecor's cars.
I doubt this. They might command a premium for a while and then they'll come down. There are so many hi-po 911 variants out there to choose from. And the bottom line is that it's about to be replaced by a newer generation car that will inevitably be faster. The demand will move on to that, and these will come down in price. If you can buy a Ferrari Scuderia for $175k these days then you're going to be able to buy a GT3 RS 4.0 for $130k in a few years. 99% of modern cars aren't investments.
