I hate to be the one with clichÃ©s, 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.
