This would be a first 911 and I'm toying with the idea of a 992 specced out to about £110-112K OR a 991.2 GTS about a year or so old with under 10K miles and a similar spec.

I'm thinking that the GTS is better value and might also depreciate less. Neither would be sat in a garage though.

What are your general thoughts on this? I've seen and sat in the 991 but not driven it yet - I'll be doing that in a couple of days if the weather's ok - but the GTS seems a better bet and probably just as much fun?

Welcome to 911uk

You're in an enviable position and may feel clearer when you've driven both cars. It's a fact of life that you'll lose a lot more money on a new mainstream car than a year old one but many are swayed to new cars by other factors.

Thanks.

It will be tricky to drive the GTS I've found due to location. I've had extensive discussion and a couple of videos with more to come and the OPC chap has been very helpful - I'd be confident about the car, although I'll want to see how many launches it's had as it was a Porsche-owned car, so I'd guess either press or experience days. I've asked them to check exactly what the background was, but the age, mileage and specification are all what I'm looking for.

It's tempting to go with the latest new shiny car and the reviews it's getting are great (and I'll be able to drive it shortly and see for myself), but a GTS for £20K less and probably less depreciation is feeling like it might be a good move.
