    Finally, a good winter beater. Idk how I'm going to decide between this and the Huracan Sterrato, but it's nice to have options.

    Not on the 992, the mounting points etc are not in place for the GT3 to install rear seats. I’m guessing it’s the same for the Dakar, although I’ve read it’s built off of the 4S/GTS chassis….. so maybe?

    Edit: The mounting points don’t exist in the 991 either but they were there in the 997. Yes you could weld them in etc on a 991/992 but that’s not a reasonable suggestion for value retention in my mind.
    While not "mounting points" per se, both 991s and 992s have indentations in the subframe, where the rear seat belt mounting points are bolted to. All subframes are are constructed the same, so essentially this is the same as the factory method, where your typical C4S has these holes drilled for the mounting point.

    This method has been approved by the German equivalent of the DOT (TUV) for the 991s & 992s, since it's identical to the factory method. So, not 100% original, but 100% identical to those that are original.

    Unfortunately, there is not the same level of approval in Canada or the US and without that, I doubt any shop here would expose themselves to that liability, so from that perspective, yes value retention would be an issue. Too bad.

    The Huracan Sterrato would be a much better buy imo.

    So what was the general consensus in the Porsche community for this car? Is it sold out/selling above msrp or are people not interested?
    It's a limited edition car, so will likely live in garages hoping that it appreciates. It will be sold out the moment the allocations drop.

    That's the ideal porsche for where we live. Drive in any season without fear of potholes, ice chunks on the road to wreck your splitter, etc.

    I'm guessing it's not priced high enough actually. Probably sell out quickly, which is a sure sign it's underpriced.

    they underprice these cars as an incentive for "repeat customers" to buy them and then flip them at a profit. It's the business model of Porsche.

    You have:

    - Sucker #1: buys a VW SUV badged as a Porsche
    - Sucker #2: pulled from group above. buys a bunch of high margin "normal" Porsches with contrast stitching and overpriced options to get access to the special ones. In the meantime fills the pockets of Porsche and Porsche's douchey dealers
    - Sucker #3: buys special edition in secondary market from Sucker #2, making Sucker #2 forget momentarily that they are a sucker and ensuring the cycle continues.

    Porsche knows more than me about thier business model.

    They do now make one model I'm interested in though, so if my wife starts making 600k/yr, I'll be calling them about the taycan wagon.

    Porsches generally seem to be for the wanna be car guy who doesn’t know where to start and just gets suckered into their brand and ends up paying absurd prices for mediocre cars. It’s a great business model because so many people who make money want to look like somebody important and they think a Porsche is a great start. 2 cents. The GT cars are great but the brand operates like a joke and I wouldn’t ever buy into it now

    This.

    They build a few interesting cars that are either difficult to get or over-priced. Then they sell the punter versions to the normies who think brand equity is transitive. It's not.

    When I see a 911, all I can think is that things didn't quite work out for that dude the way he wanted, otherwise he would have just bought a GT3.
