I’ve been looking at quite a few high-dollar 911s lately and among the pantheon of Porsche supercars the GT2 tends to stand on its own. Unlike the extremely high priced original 993 GT2 where values soar to over $1M the water-cooled cars have less collector interest and thus lower costs. But the performance is not lower. Not lower at all.
I see examples of the 996 GT2 come around pretty often, and prices have generally been moving up. I see the 997 GT2 far less often, outside of the ridiculously sublime GT2 RS which can easily set you back nearly $500K, so I’m a little curious where these will fall on the spectrum. Where will their value lie relative to the rising values of the 996? As I mentioned in my roundup of the 996 GT3: while the 996 still makes for a reasonable value even among the GT cars, as they approach the cost of a similar 997 then we begin to open up even greater performance value potential.

With only 1261 produced worldwide and around 200 for the US (I’ve seen 205 quoted, but the ad here states 234) the 997 GT2 is a pretty rare machine though certainly far more common than some of Porsche’s rarest 911s. That sort of thing might condition how we think of the long term value of these performance beasts, but we can probably rest assured knowing that values aren’t going to come down much. That said, the GT2 RS obviously trumps one of these and with a 991 GT2 now looking to be in the works you never really know how things will play out. Of course, the optimist might then look at the GT2 and dream of track days and devilishly good fun at the wheels of one of Porsche’s giants with less worry about adding on those high intensity miles.
This particular GT2 looks in fine condition in its popular Arctic Silver Metallic paint. It is pretty low mileage for an ’08 911, but not necessarily low for a GT2. While it’s tough to call anything a nice value when it will likely have a selling price around $200K, those specifically looking for a GT2 might find this one to be reasonable. Supercar performance of this sort never really comes cheaply. Bidding currently sits at $90,300. Naturally we expect that to rise, but maybe not so much that it cannot compete with the 996 as a performance value.
