    / #Porsche-911-GT3-991.2 vs. #Porsche-911-Carrera-T-991.2 / #Porsche / #Porsche-911 / #Porsche-911-991.2 / #Porsche-911-991


    A question came up at a recent cars and coffee, and I’d like to know your opinion – plus those of any others who wish to get involved. It all started when we saw a manual 991.2 GT3 for sale. The owner wanted £140k for it.

    Somebody made what I thought was a good point: why not buy a Carrera T and save yourself the best part of £60k? I am in a position to buy a GT3 (I’ll likely have to settle for a 991.2 as I do not have a relationship with any dealer, so I’m not even bothering trying to secure a 992) and it really got me thinking. Everybody is quick to chase the latest GT car, but is a GT3 really double the car of a Carrera T? I’d think not. I also think the Carrera T has taken its big hit, whereas the GT3 WILL come down over the next year or so, and I’m not really interested in losing out on residuals. So, what do you think? As a toy for pure enjoyment, is the GT3 really worth the big stump up over a Carrera T?
    • As with any 911, it all comes down to how you’ll use it. If you want a show-stopping 911 that’s good for gentle drives in sunnier climates, the Targa As with any 911, it all comes down to how you’ll use it. If you want a show-stopping 911 that’s good for gentle drives in sunnier climates, the Targa makes a compelling choice. If you’re a circuit junky intent on being the fastest at the track day, you’ll need a GT2 RS. Similarly, there’s a place in the lineup for both a 991.2 GT3 and a Carrera T, particularly if the GT3 is a Clubsport with PDK. However, assuming both the Carrera T and GT3 are manual (and the GT3 is a Comfort spec to be as comparable as possible), the GT3 is a complete reworking over the Carrera T. Its motorsport engine is far superior than the turbocharged engine in the Carrera T. We think the former is the best engine in any road car, ever. The GT3’s six-speed manual is also vastly superior to the Carrera T’s seven-speed. A GT has and always will carry a cache of being a fine performance machine, whereas some dealers have already commented that the Carrera T is a hard sell as not everybody understands the car.
      The reality is both cars will make for a cracking driving machine for Sunday blasts and continental road trips, but you’d really have to be extremely convinced by the Carrera T’s ability to perform to pass up the scintillating 991.2 GT3.
