The base Carrera has a great lease deal right now. Unfortunately it is not as great of a deal for the 911 Carrera S.

Porsche will give you money right now to switch from another luxury brand.

what kind of numbers are we talking about?
PM me.

Didn't get any quotes, just know the 2 yr residual/ 12k/yr was 76% for base Carrera.

oh ok. i thought maybe you got some numbers. Porsche leases has always been so high that it made sense to just buy it instead of leasing.

nice switch and I agree 100% with it. The GTR is a very fast, capable track car. But who cares right? No one is racing cars on the street. You can't even race people on a track.

Life is short, go for the car with the fun factor, speed isn't everything. If it was, everyone would have a GTR.

I would have picked the 991s 100 out of 100 times over the GTR.

After a few weeks with the 991 i can tell you that this car is really a drivers car or at least thats my opinion. It just stirs all the right senses.

Thanks. I have been looking at a few things for this car but to be honest it really doesnt need much.
