I've decided to finally sell my R8, but can't decide what to replace it with, moving towards a 911 GT3 or a McLaren 650S. I don't do as much fast road miles now that I'm racing, but will still want the sports car to be a sometime DD - along with the Tesla & a Golf - & a good car for Tassie, GG & the like. I demo'ed a 12C a few years back for a weekend & it was a very usable DD, I know Mark used to drive his 12C & 650S a lot, like all his cars & they were very useable around town. I'm yet to demo the GT3 & 650S but wanting a few opinions on which people prefer & what the GT3 is like as a sometime DD.

when does the 991.2 GT3 come out?  If you're swayed to the GT3 then that might be the one to get, plus you'd assume it'll have better re-sale value than the 991.1

Not sure on that, I must check that out  :) the resale on 991.1 is still good, their 'asking' more than what they were when new.

If decide on Porsche its not a silly idea, I don't think it will cost less but.... seems like when googling the new one it will be released Geneva '17, need to consider a deposit & even buying 991.1 until the 991.2 arrives...good chance they'll do that sort of deal & trade back.

Keep your R8 till then
the new R8 isn't going to have a huge effect on resale of the second hand market, they are holding well.

even if it costs a bit more who cares you have got to spec it exactly how you like it and it is new

Being a Porsche Man through and through, I can honestly say get the 650S.

They are such a weapon and at early $400's they are the best value cars around.

The 991 GT3 is an amazing car too, just no where near as fast.
May the Horse be with you....

I suspect the McLaren would be a lot more user friendly in the occasional  daily driver role than the GT3.
