exactly. thats the dilemma

do you spend 200k on a turbo s ?

or 120k on a 997 gt3 manual + 80k on a modded RS3 dct ? and probably lose less on depreciation.
To be fair, TTS buyers don't care about depreciation and are passionate about that specific vehicle. If tracking is your only goal, there are definitely better options for that much money.

i just bought a current gt3.

-new one doesn't look all that good aesthetically, spoiler looks dumb, its physically bigger and most likely will be heavier. the turbo s increased its weight by 100 pounds this generation, for instance.
-they will retain the 4.0 flat 6 so i doubt we'll see a big power bump. most of the performance will be aero, tire, gearing related (8 speed pdk)
-trying to get a new 992 gt3 is going to be hard unless you wanna overpay (which will probably keep 991 values up for a while).
