We currently have my wife's weekend toy, a '07 Cayman S that has been pretty well modded for non track use on sunny weekends. This is our 14 Porsche and first one that is not rear engine. We love the car but now are looking to replace it with a more special one. This leads me to my questions. We want to get either a '12 R or '16 GT4 to add to our car collection. I have searched the the web for comparisons but have not seen many. We're looking for a car to use on sunny weekends, take to car shows and events, and possible track - vary rarely as we have other dedicated cars for that purpose. We realize there is quite a delta in price points, but this is a car we plan on keeping for a long time. With that said, we do want a car that is fun to drive, will at least hopefully maintain its value (possibly increase over the long term), and be that special car to fit in the garage space between my wife's C7 corvette daily driver and my concours condition '57 300SL Roadster (and no, I can't convince my wife to get both an R and a GT4). Either car we get will be low milage, well optioned inc. LWB, and stock. Part of the conundrum is that I'm concerned that the R will not be that different from our S which has very similar HP numbers after the mods mentioned in my signature. On the other side of the coin is the GT4 worth the $30K premium and will it hold its value with the new GT4's Porsche is planning to release (4.0, PDK). I'm very interested in people's thoughts as to what would be the best choice. Additionally, if we go with the R, is a 6 speed more desirable than a PDK? I like the 6 speed in the GT4, but the one in our S is not as precise (I know I can fix that). I have not driven a Cayman with PDK but did just drive an AMG GTC with a DC and was very impressed. So I thought it might be an interesting change. Thank you all in advance for your suggestions, I'm honestly interested in the opinions of this knowledgeable group.
