As much as the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring was theoretically produced in an attempt to curb the insane mark-up prices on the 911 R, it seems like they didn’t produce enough. Based on the recent prices, a lot more people want GT3 Tourings than are out there. As for the 911 R? Good luck even finding one. If they do turn up, bring a barrel of money. Several barrels of money. This example up for sale in Houston with 158 miles? Do I need to even so more?

FERRARI OF HOUSTON & FERRARI OF THE WOODLANDS present a highly collectible 2016 Porsche 911 R with an ultra low 158 miles from new.
Comprehensive option list including Single-Mass Flywheel with Reinforced Clutch, Front axle lift system, and Leather interior in Black with Stitching in GT Silver.
Porsche 4 Year Service completed April 2021 via an authorized Porsche retailer. Owner’s manual, 2 keys, and original MSRP are present.
In an age of special sportscars now produced in non-exclusive volumes, this 2016 Porsche 911 R represents one of only 991 delivered worldwide.
This example is finished in one of the launch colors of white with the red stripes along with the carbon buckets and houndstooth inserts. If you picture 911 R, this is probably one of the images you first think of. So what is going with values?
Well, it certainly seems like the demand for wingless GT cars far exceeds what is out on the market. The 992 Touring should be announced in a few months, but there is also talk of something completely new like a 992 Sport Classic. Will that bring down 991 prices? I highly doubt it. Porsche knows what they are doing and while they certainly don’t love to see people flipping their brand new cars for twice the price, I’m sure they appreciate the extremely strong brand value. There are too many people with the money who will gladly line up to buy these cars and just the same to pay over what they sold for new. It’s a cruel world out there for the less wealthy, but what else is new?
Probably my favorite water cooled 911, although the 997 GT3 RS 4.0 is a close second. The styling, engine, interior, rarity make this a bucket list car. Unfortunately the prices on this and all 911s are through the roof right now. For example an unexceptional 997.1 cab just sold for $70k on BAT. That is 100% increase in value in the last year. This is insanity. Same with most air cooled cars. 911 SCs and Carreras, 993 C4S/C2S are all way up in the last few months. Even if I was a potential buyer for a collectible Porsche I would not be buying right now. I think a year or two from now the market will be much lower. Of course I could be wrong and this will be viewed as still a good buying opportunity.
Greg, I agree with you. I’ve been looking to replace my departed 991 and test drove a brand new 992 on black friday 2020. I was offered $10k off list (I didn’t love that particular car and was not interested). That same dealer is now listing used 992s for over what they stickered for new. This is the definition of insanity. I’m sitting this out for now.
Part insanity and part inflation thanks to the current administration thinking money really does grow on trees. I too am staying tuned to see where things go.
I like these…but this seems like bubble pricing, as do the prices recently on BaT. Two years ago, the 911R was around 300K or so…500+ is insane.
