Yep we sure do!There was a black Gen 2 out on Sunday at Mosport GP and I lapped him twice in a 30 minute session which really upsets me as that car should be a lot quicked than our M's in the proper hands.

If you remove the roll cage, Dakota can fit in back or he can sit at the driver seat.
Just like that

There's a "used" 997.2 RS with 600 on the clock for sale on Rennlist. You know you want it, I certainly do. The real deal are .1 GT3 for around $70K and .1 RS for under a $100K.

Duncan,
I have a old 996, E92 and C320.
I have questions about trade-in GTR
Is GTR a good choice?
If it is a good ideal, which one should I trade-in!!!!

Why would you want a GTR(JPS)?It would seem to be worst vehicle of the ones mentioned in your post

There are a few good used ones around here for sale right now.There is a series 2 GT3 with only 6500 kms on it available for $125000cdn but it lacks some options that are must haves for myself.The grey RS in the photo lists at $195000.Maybe right now is not the right time for myself to be even thinking about it,but when the M goes,I am pretty sure I know what I want to replace it with

No it was notas she was elsewhere being talked to by my friendly Porsche tech on the merits on me having a GT3 for the track.Somehow she is just not buying that argument.I think she has allready conceded at that at some point in the future,it just might happen.

That's OK Duncan, even if your wife won't let you have one, you might be able to get the porsche in the background as a consolation prize...
