Over on TheSUPERCARDRIVER YouTube channel, they are chatting about the ups and downs of a 911R, and whether or not a Carrera GT might be a better buy for the same or similar money. While 911Rs were sold initially at just about $190,000, only 991 of them were built, and you basically needed to own a 918 Spyder to get first crack at one. Porsche hasn't even finished delivering 911Rs to buyers, and they've already inflated in value about 700%. If you weren't one of the lucky 991 to buy in at MSRP, you'll quickly find out that 911Rs are now trading for nearly a million dollars. So, if you're looking for a driving experience and an investment opportunity, which of these two cars do you buy? Which one is more special? Which one will continue to increase in value? Which one will you want to own for a while?

This video examins this very connundrum from the perspectives of two owners, one with a gorgeous GT Silver Metallic CGT and one with a newly-purchased 911R. I know which one I'd pick, what about you?
