      911 GT3 Touring over any of these.

      But I’d probably be just as happy with a Carrera T 7MT.

      I would go with a touring and pocket 120k. That said, if I had to choose, it would be the 2RS. Several of my friends who are incredibly experienced drivers and Porsche GT car owners have gotten to track one and all of them say it is so much greater than the sum of its parts. An interesting car in the 250 range, but for 300+ I would definitely be looking elsewhere.

      Given the 300k parameters, why not get the Touring w/buckets for the weekends and the T for a daily with sports plus?

      Went with the newer GT2 RS. Definitely a car I'd take to the track and use as it was designed.

      Any car which holds together for a whole race is too heavy.

      The manual Scud is cool, but there again, you can get a stick 360 all day long for under $100k, and gated 430s for $150-200k. Is the Sud really worth that much more just cuz?

      Yeah, what that shop did is awesome, and it's obviously a cool car. That said, the only concrete thing they said in that article that was better was the synchros, and there were some negatives like the manettino/ESP/ABS not working. I'm not sure how better synchros make an unfinished car the best driving experience ever; if they were earnest about loving it that much, I'd guess what they really loved was the 1 of 1 status. Nothing wrong with that, but personally that's not really a selling point.

      You guys choosing something significantly cheaper and pocketing the rest are missing the point of the thread, IMO.

      I think it’s a reflection of us just not thinking some of these cars are worth $300k, or $150k more than other cars. Does anyone think a 911R is 2x as good as a GT3T?

      I mean, that might have to do with the poll. Three 911s and an old Ferrari, lol. There are many, many other options in this price range.

      That Scud is a a future classic and investment... but for $300K I want to drive it. Plus I prefer 6 cylinders to 8. R for me

      Never driven 997, but 991 GT2RS pulls like a freight train, and 2018's I believe also got a cool helmet holder, which 2019s didn't get.

      I'll choose the 997 GT2RS- the rarest and I like the 997's size over the 991.

      The Scuderia was never offered in manual so absolutely no thanks- I don't want a conversion, not in that type of a car, no way.

      When the Sunday morning drive is over and you park with your friends in front of the local coffee shop, there's only one car with the prancing horse badge. Ferrari for me.

      The only one I'd easily eliminate is the 991 gt2rs. No clutch pedal no care.
      I think I'd take the R.
      What I really want for 300k is this though.
      98 m3, Technoviolet/anthrazit cloth, 112k and officially worthless.
      2000 323i touring, Titanium silver/grey, 160k and officially boring

      I already picked GT2RS, but now that I think about it, can I go back in time for this and pick GT2RS order? I can't think of more 1st world problem than debating the paint to sample color for one.
