That's like saying a 260 K (loaded with options) Turbo S can be had for 139k.
See what I did there.

You're taking a fully loaded 720 S with every conceivable option and using a special discounted Turbo S (the 175K version ), with zero options and zero ADM for your comparison. Real objective
That is my bad, it was a turbo listed as a turbo S. I get Porsches at cost and Iíve always found they hold value well and have even made some money a couple.

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/inventorylisting/viewDetailsFilterViewInventoryListing.action?zip=0 8818&showNegotiable=true&sourceContext=carGurusHom ePage_false_0&distance=50000&endYear=2017&entitySe lectingHelper.selectedEntity=d404&startYear=2017#l isting=267544859

Either way, they drop and then they level off. Even clean 996 turbos house for 50-60k these days

I donít see many Mclarens around 300, most are well above that from what Iíve see. The people I know who own them paid well over 300.

From what I read, there is more of a supply of 911 Turbos than GT3's. Others have mentioned that you need to be a VIP customer to secure a new GT3 allocation.
Here is a 17 turbo S with 35,000 miles listed for 140k and originally stocker of 201.

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...ting=264015362

A 720S with that type of mileage would tank and likely look terrible as they are not quality cars IMO.. I nearly bought one and it was not IMO up to Porsche quality.

So what did you get instead? A GT2RS or a Pista?

Hello guys,,
I remember that the car is longer than before, likely do they can fit a hybrid system in this thing. I've been saying they'd make a 992 Turbo S E-hybrid for years. If they do, this car will https://speedtest.vet/ https://vidmate.bid/ be stupid quick in the quarter mile. I want to see a 2.2 second Turbo.

It's nice I'd much rather have a 991.1 or .2 GT3 for half the price even if its slower. If I had to buy a supercar or super GT for $200k I'd be hard pressed to buy anything other than the upcoming Tesla Roadster especially since I don't take my cars to the track. Sure the Tesla won't have an evocative engine sound but neither does the turbo. Tesla Roadster 2 + 991.1 GT3 for the best of both worlds as opposed to a brand new turbo S convertible with full options IMHO.

True, the Dyson (Taycan Turbo S) is actually quicker than that.

That looks pretty bad from the rear, like the previous version better.

But then again, what would Porsche "fix" mid-cycle if they didn't screw it up a little in the beginning?

Stats are undeniable.

So is it's over pricing.

For $200k I must insist on something much more Exotic looking and sounding!

Car prices have just gone up so much over the past two decades, $200k doesn't buy what it used to . In a world where an M5 Comp costs $130k with options, I'm not all that surprised.

+60 hp over its predecessor which ran low 10s. A 9 second car is inevitable.

https://www.topgear.com/car-news/sup...s-which-faster.

According to TopGear.

The 911ís real advantage happens much higher up, in the realm beyond British and almost all international speed limits. From 60mph to 130mph the 911 Turbo S is 1.3secs ahead. And, in the grand scheme of fast cars, itís already done its best. Pretty much every McLaren, including the new GT, is quicker, so are the Ferrari 488 and 812. Up there, the 911 Turbo is merely on par.

This seems off because another test has the 992 turbo S 60-130 in 5.2 seconds.

I donít recall. But they did the 992 turbo S vs M8C and the M8 ran ~6.5 in the 60-130.
