I hate to be the one with clichés, but a lot of times when people ask me about the values of certain cars, I reply a lot of times “They’ll never be any less expensive.” This is usually caused by a perfect storm of low production, high demand, and the very high chance of that kind of car won’t be produced ever again. Today’s car, a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, checks all those boxes.
Only 410 examples were built for the US market during a two-year production run, which is extremely low considering how many people out there desire these cars, and the major kicker being this is one of the few GT3 RS models produced with a manual transmission. I think it is pretty clear that the days of manual gearboxes in RS cars are long gone, so if you want one, go find a 997 example. I think most of the world has realized all this, and now over the past few years prices have almost doubled. What I’d give for a GT3 RS for $140,000.

This is an interesting example with the heavy orange trim inside that might turn off some buyers, but you know what you are signing up for. It has an asking price of $252,000, although I do think it is a tag high given we saw one with half the miles and the pricey carbon-ceramic brakes sell for the same price a few weeks ago. However, this is still just one of 410 cars. Have fun waiting around for another one if you think one is going to pop up tomorrow or prices are going back down. (Hot tip: They aren’t.) I’m sure there are a few people out there who would be willing to sell for $250,000 after buying for $130,000 a few years ago if you raise your voice loud enough, and I wouldn’t call you crazy for paying that price. Get them while you can, because I’m sure we’ll look back in 2027 and think this was cheap.
