My Ride: 04 M3 vert
2009 GTR or 997.2 C2S cabrio?

both cost around $65K for well-used cars (around 40K miles). decision in the next 12 months.

obvi the GTR's been more beaten up, but still...when I saw they can be had in a similar price range as my p-car goal, why not try it out for a while?

Cant imagine buying a car for $65k out of warranty with 40k miles.

I would look at a 1 year old 5k miles Cayman S for less money myself.

Here is one with less than 800 miles for $51,998.

Both are nice cars. Research both, test drive them, and pick the one you like more.

Every car named in this thread that isn't a GT-R, is inferior to one.
