It is funny how when I noticed you made this thread I knew this wasn't a joke and you could actually afford these cars. Others have made cars that are most likely out of their price range .
I have the ability to pick up one of these cars for cash because I've really tightened the belt with my finances since mid-2008, but there's no way I'll do that since I can get a 2.99% Penfed 5-year car loan. I want to keep the total out-the-door cost under $100k.

GT3 hands down. Its a damm sexy gentlemens race car. Sure the GTR is a BEAST and demands respect on the streets but it too childish in my eyes. Get some center lock wheels on there if you do get one

I know people with porsches that have nothing but problems, this stopped me from buying a cayman s a couple weeks ago....

But back on topic, if I HAD to chose from the gtr or gt3 I'd get the gt3 only because I hate how the gtr has a black box and driving it how it was designed to be driven voids the warranty...
I just don't know if I'm ready for a Ferrari at this point in my life. They seem more like garage queen cars that you baby and drool over. I'm looking for something that I can hit the track with and ride hard & put away wet.

The maintenance on the 996TT that I owned for 3+ years wasn't bad at all (not that much higher than maintenance for an M3). The mods, well the cost of those were a different story... Good thing for me is that I know a really good indy Porsche shop in Vegas and one in Orange County.

I've never been a fan of either Porsche or the GTR's styling, but the GTR already looks dated in the front and will only get worse over time.

I say Porsche.

I know that this is an 2007, but I'm gonna go test drive this baby on Saturday. I spoke with the owner earlier this evening and he sounds like he babied the hell out of this car:

The first gen GTR35's have mad tranny probs if you turn traction off, and your warranty is void too. The 2011 GTR's are supposed to get straight cut gears . I see Porsche's every where in my town, rarely a GTR.

USC - Ask syncwireless, if I remember right he owned a GTR and didn't like it as he wanted a drivers car. It would basically drive you or do everything with ease and take the fun out of it. I think he was buying some kind of roadster or smaller coupe.

Looks like a deal, wonder if you can still get it CPO'ed on a private sale. You make me want to get a Porsche.
