675LT or the new 720?

I have a 675LT spyder. Would you sell it for the new 720?

I'm not - besides the P1 I feel like the first LT is the car to have unless you have the juice for an F1. People still are using the 675 as a benchmark. Will it eventually lose that status - yes. But will it always be remembered as an incredibly engineered car - YES. The 720 is no doubtedly a great car but if you could only hold in to one I'd keep the 675 until the next LT variant is available

Nope...... a special for the cooking model, the 720 is a stunning next generation model though and just aim to own a variant of it one day....but if you could have both then that's a different matter ..

Nope.... and no one would sell their 911RS for a new 911S either

I almost pulled the trigger on a 675LT a few months ago.... But when I saw the 720S at the unvieling I could not justify spending more for a outgoing car VS newer tech on the 720.... Of course the new 720LT (or whatever they decide to call it) will be the new bench mark. For me I'm going to wait for a test drive in the new 720 and then decide. Still love the 675LT's but they are still more than the newer 720S's.... which is hard for me to justify.

I would not get rid of a 675LT for the 720S. Granted the 720S is an amazing machine but the 675LT is just absolutely stunning and is possibly one of my favorite cars, ever. Now I might be bias, but even still, I don't think I could justify it.

I would reserve judgment until after I've driven the 720S, either way, the 675LT is a very special car.

Generalization but an observation from people that I know and have discussed this decision with .

They are either holding onto 675 or adding a 720s. The ones considering swapping a 675 for a 729 are primarily doing it to keep in line or move up in line for the next ultimate series and they don't want to have a clutter of cars

That comparison is rather misleading surely? 675 to 720 would be much more like RS to next gen gt3. And in the case of the current 991RS to.2gt3, value apart which always favours the RS (which may or may not hold with the LT) there's plenty to suggest the .2gt3 will be a considerable improvement on the RS.

No way, the 675LT is bound to become a classic.
