2007 GT3 RS versus 2010 GT3

My interest in these two cars is peeking and they seem to sell for similiar money. I like the wider body of the RS, but have read that the 2010 GT3 series has been upgraded and is a much better car now. I am trying to compare and figure out which is the better value and better car.

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks,

John

No tracking, but aggressive country road driving.

Buy the one that gives 99% of the performance of the other, but has already lost 30%+ of its value in depreciation.

I agree and assume you mean just get a 2007/2008 GT3 as the prices are lower and they almost match the RS performance. Am I correct.

I'd get the RS then. Without driving the car at the 10/10ths limit you're going to be very hard pressed to tell the difference between the two.

Also, if the LSD hasn't already been rebuilt properly, consider it a cost that you will need to incur on the car in pretty short order. This will be the case on both cars, and not just on the older one.

Denson,
I'd get the 07/08 GT3RS, as you surmised. Or a GT3 (same years). I haven't driven the "new" one, but I have 8Kmiles in an '08 GT3. I passed on buying newer cars because I just can't see how they are that much better, or where (outside of a track) you'd exploit the difference. I know a GT2RS would be more powerful, but I can't see the enjoyment factor being significantly higher. Just my thoughts.

I also think the 2010 GT3RS graphics are pretty pimptastic.
