you dont really buy a 911 to go and take your kids to school or go grocery shopping :francis:

Last week at one of the Newport Beach Whole Foods I saw a 918 parked next to a GT3 RS. One of the few times in that GT3 RS's owners life he'll get stunted on like that.

Plenty of people grocery shopping in Porsche's Breh. The 911 is more common than a Honda Civic in some parts of Southern California.

For sure. If I get it, I will likely only end up keeping it for around 6 months. But even if someone were to keep it for 2 years and lost $20k, cost of ownership would be less than $1,000/month. Which is even cheaper than leasing something like an M4- and you’d obviously be driving a much nicer car.
You better keep your other toys if expected ownership is 6 months. The only people who let go of their gt3 after 6 months, don't drive it or hate the bucket seats. I'll wait for the numbers, outside of the taycan; new porsche models are losing their appeal.

I don't drive much anyway because I live a few blocks from my office, but by that time, I should have the Bronco that I pre-ordered also, so the GT3 wouldn't be my only car. I could always just keep my 992 S, but if I sold it in the new few months, I'd be maximizing the return. COVID has decreased production so there's not many 992's as their usually would be in a normal production year. I think my dealer only had 2 on the lot the last time I was there.

As for the GT3, I'm anticipating somewhere between a 6-10 month hold time, and it wouldn't have more than like 5k miles at that point. I just want to make sure I'm able to get rid of it before they fulfill all of the production orders so there's actually a demand as far as people who are willing to pay a little more for mine rather than waiting another 6+ months to have theirs built (assuming they even were able to grab one of the allocations).

I haven't made up my mind yet, was going to swing by the dealer tomorrow to see what's up. I agree with you, the Taycan is probably the most desirable to me, but I'm weary of electric cars holding their value long term because of the way battery tech continues to get better. I was thinking of getting one of the base models they just released, since the tax credit would help with depreciation, but haven't bothered looking to see what used Taycans are going for to actually know it if would make sense.

What do you think the resale on the Bronco is going to be? Think it’ll be like the Vette? I have a 1st Edition reserved and I intended to flip it. I wanted to sell the reservation before hand but everyone says Ford won’t let you. I didn’t wanna finance it, but it’s looking like I’ll have to

I think it's all speculation, but I actually intend to keep the car for a year or two, so I haven't done much research into how it'll do it's flipped. I have to imagine you'll make money, particularly on the 1st Edition. For me, if I have it for 2 years and lose $4-5k, I don't really care all that much because I'm not buying it to flip.

What I will tell you though, one HUGE benefit someone put me on to with the Bronco is to sign up for the Mustang Club (it's $25) in order to get an X-Plan pin and qualify for X plan pricing. It's basically invoice pricing rather than MSRP. The trick is to find a dealer who will honor X-Plan pricing on the Bronco. Many don't honor it because it's considered a "specialty" vehicle. But if you find a dealer near you that does so, you'll be buying it for invoice price so there should be money to be made there. On the one I built, going from MSRP to X-Plan pricing saved me close to $3k, and I imagine your savings would be even more.

Damn I need to look into that xplan thing :ohhh: I’m buying mine strictly to flip so every dollar is worth it. My dealer is trash, they haven’t even reached out to me yet :snoop:

Decided to move forward with one. Sent my build to the dealer today. Allocation should be assigned in the coming weeks and then I should be getting my car around September.

Here's the build for anyone that might care: The Porsche Code
Fire :wow: Don’t you have a blue 911? Gonna sell that?

Appreciate it bruh. Yea, I'm just going to trade it in when I get the GT3. There's still a shortage of 911's at the moment because of COVID production issues so hopefully I can get a premium for my car on the trade in.
Dope bro. Being that there’s a shortage you might be able to sell privately for more than they’ll give you on trade. Post it up on the forums and 991 Facebook groups and see if anyone bites from now til the GT3 is ready.

Off topic, but do you think the new Bronco will be able to be sold for profit like the C8? Specifically a First Edition.

The problem with selling private though is that I wouldn't get any set off against the price of the GT3. So if I sell private, my sales tax on the GT3 will be like $13k. But if I do a trade in, my sales tax is only like $5k because in FL you only pay sales tax on the amount over the trade-in. But I have a good relationship with the dealer so I'm pretty confident that they'll give me market value for it.

I think we spoke about this a while back, but depending on where you are in line with your dealer, you could absolutely get more what you pay on a Bronco. On a First Edition, it's probably $10k or more, if I had to guess. They had so many pre-orders that they split the builds into 2021 and 2022 Model Years. So anyone that gets a 2021 can make good money because there won't be that many of them. I think if someone went into Ford today and put down a deposit on one, they wouldn't have the car for at least a year, and it's in high demand, so I think you'll do well if you get it.

Ahhhh, yeah you’re right, makes much more sense to trade in then.

Oh yeah, I do remember chopping it up w you about this a few months ago. I got a June 7th build date for my FE and it’s looking like more orders are getting pushed back so that’s a plus haha. Part of me wants to keep it and just rent it out on Turo for 10-14 days out of the month, other part of me wants $10-20k and be done...
