What a load of BS. I've got heaps of mates with Porsche's. One of them is good mates with the dealer principle at Porsche Gold Coast, you can easily get a 997 on road for under 230k.
Now, if the new M3 comes in at around 170-175k. I'd rather a low k example of a 997, or a 996 GT3 or 996TT. All are better cars than what the upcoming M will be, all have the ability have to exteneded warranty for up to ten years.
