991.2 GT3 v 991.1 GT3 RS: which is better for £150k?

The ever-changing nature of the Porsche marketplace often throws up some interesting conundrums for the 911 buyer. As values of separate models fluctuate, they often combine to bring about new scenarios for those in the market to consider: ‘What’s around for my £100,000?’ for example. Right now there are many different choices of 911s available at many different price points. As a case in point, for £40,000 you could choose anything
from a G-series classic, to a 996 Turbo, to a 997.2 Carrera S right now. The market’s constant evolution means different cars move in and out of the equation, whatever your budget. It’s what keeps things interesting, in many ways.

As another case in point, only five years ago we ran a head-to-head road test in this very magazine asking which was the better Turbo for your £60,000: 993 or 997.1? Today the 993 is worth at least double that, while a 997.1 can be had for £50,000.

Market circumstance has dictated the 991.2 GT3 and 991.1 GT3 RS have been trading hands for roughly the same money for a while now, so the question we’ve routinely found levied in our direction in the past year is thus: ‘Which is the better buy for my £150,000; a Gen2 991 GT3 or Gen1 991 GT3 RS?’

Really, there are multiple answers to the question, and it all comes down to what you’ll do with the car. We’ve therefore assessed both the 991.2 GT3 and 991.1 GT3 RS over three practical categories, investment potential, track day use, and on the road, which covers all possible ownership intentions.

Total 911 issue 153 on sale now

The new Porsche 911 GT3 is welcome news for car enthusiasts: though Zuffenhausen has edged towards PDK-only transmission for its GT and Turbo cars in the last five years, the 2018 GT3 marks a famous return for the good, old-fashioned stick shift, which is now a no-cost option. So how do the manual and PDK GT3’s compare? You can find out in Total 911 issue 153, out now, featuring the most comprehensive review of both cars you’ll find absolutely anywhere on the newsstand.

Lest we forget, it was the 991 R that reintroduced manual transmission to a Porsche GT car. Deliveries of the 991 examples were made last summer, though as had been well documented, most aren’t driven often due to their meteoric rise and in value. However, Total 911 seeks to change that as in this issue we accompany a subscriber intent on using the R for its primary purpose – driving! Step forward a 1,000-mile tour of the best driving roads in Wales with some breathtaking pictures to boot.

Elsewhere in issue 154, we’ve a look at the history of the 911 Carrera, looking at its evolution from a lightweight, rear-driven track machine to a turbocharged, all-wheel-drive grand tourer. We also test drive a Porsche 912 and look at why enthusiasts of the early, pre-impact bumper 911s are now turning to this four-cylinder classic for their purist driving pleasures, and we go classic road rallying and discover why it’s the perfect entry-level form of motorsport.

To read all of this and much, much more, pick up Total 911 issue 153 in stores today. Alternatively, order your copy online for home delivery, or subscribe to ensure you never miss an issue.
