Content starts @ 1:25. I love how the decibel level almost completely drowns out his guy's voice.

I sold it last year, should have kept it. Now 991 pricing is through the roof and not the value that it was before despite being an amazing car. I sold it for $100k and had people lowballing me at $80-90k lol. Probably worth $135k now.

But I have a Ferrari FF now which is incredibly awesome and also gone up about $30-40k since I bought it 6 months ago. Though I am tempted to sell, take profit, and roll that into a 430 Scuderia or 458. Life is rough.

So I'm foreign to the Porsche scene and never knew the 911 had a rear seat. Upon arriving to a Porsche dealer in Houston to look at a Taycan for my wife I sat in a 911 and thought holyshit... it can "seat" 4?. The rear seats were the main reason I bought my M8GC. Well we got her a build allocation for a Taycan Turbo S with no markup that'll arrive next Aprilish and I asked about the availability for the 2022 911 Turbo S. I was told a year plus wait just for an allocation. So the hunt was on. By stroke of luck I found a build allocation in California (I'm in Houston) for not only a 911 Turbo S Cab which would also be an April delivery, but a 911 Turbo S that would be next July. Requirement was $10k down for the build allocation and a $30k markup which after calling around to multiple high volume Texas dealers was a great deal and I was told by a few to jump on it and couple even asked for the dealers info.

So boom....

Here's what I ended up with and next April will be a brutally expensive month.

Being my first Porsche..... please give me input as there's sooooooooo many options.

Congrats. But the market is just nuts. I got 5%off my 992 S last year.

Thatís a pretty loaded spec, $300k for a turbo S seems nuts to me but itís an amazing car and well thatís what theyíre trading for. What leather did you choose that cost so much extra?

The depreciation is probably going to be painful when the market returns to some semblance of normalcy but if you donít care about that then more power to you.

Finally saw a 992 GT3 in person the other day, casually parked in front of a restaurant. It was a pretty basic spec, white with black GT3 graphics on the bottom of the doors, and black interior. It did have a proper six speed manual though. Not quite as sold on the design, the front bumper just doesn't look quite right especially considering how good the 991.2 looked, however it's still a very solid design and is much more graceful than most new performance cars. I still think that the 997.2 GT3/RS will forever be the best-looking Porsche ever produced though.

That they showed up on the Mustang a few years prior? Or the lower facia?

997 was really the sweetspot for gt3s in terms of size. the 991 and 992 have gotten a bit big.. even though porsche does a good job keeping the weight around 3000 pounds.
