How hard is it to sell a Porsche 911 priced like a bona fide supercar? A doddle, by all accounts.
And how easy is it to buy a GT2 RS today? Impossible – unless you’re willing to pay twice the asking price. Porsche had deposits for the 1000-unit production run it’s rumoured to have commissioned for the car within a matter of weeks after the model’s unveiling last year, and it is now building and delivering the last few.
For an indication of how high demand still is, consider this: several delivery-mileage, 2018-reg examples are already on the ‘second-hand’ market for asking prices that look ambitious even by the standards of flipped Porsche road-legal track specials. Some are on offer for almost half a million pounds.
As crazy as it may seem, there might well be one or two wealthy individuals willing to pay that much.
