12C or new GT3?
Thinking about taking the plunge and getting a used 12C. Has to be orange (I think). Probably a spider, since there are so few tradeoffs in the 12C platform. Budget may put me closer to a coupe however.
I would be moving from a 911 4S, which I love and which I would like to avoid selling... but likely will if I upgrade to something in this price range.
Posted here a week or two ago on getting a 12C and what to consider. Now I wanted input from the McLaren side of things on pros/cons of getting a 12C vs. getting a brand new 991.2 (next facelift) GT3. Which will of course also have to be orange.
Maybe this is a bit apples/oranges but my expectations are:
1) Both will be a blast to drive
2) Both are similar-ish in terms of performance (slight edge to the 12C, I think, but probably not much)
3) Both will cost me a similar amount up-front (after adding a warranty to the 12C...)
4) I expect both will hold value pretty well (can't envision either dropping below $100K in next 5 years, other than following a big market shock)
In both cases, and even for my current 4S, they would be weekend cars only. Figure about 1k-3k miles per year.
Appreciate thoughts and feedback. Realize it is a personal preference decision...
