Although this is at least 'inferred' in Tony's comments above, it probably should be stated directly:
Anyone who might be even slightly claustrophobic (or has a spouse who is and 'said spouse usually accompanies you) would be well advised to sit in a GT40 with its doors closed before even beginning to look for one to buy. A GT40 truly IS a car that's "worn" - occupants do not just simply sit "in" one. The expression ("You do not sit in a GT40 - you wear it") is darned close to being a 100% literal fact.
Wifey was not at all 'comfy' in the MKII we sat in...she couldn't get out of it quick enough once the doors were closed.

JMPO. OMV.
Stop it! Smells like fuel. Rattles your body. Loud as heck. Fits like a glove. Wife doesn't want to go. I really want one now!

Since I didn’t get a NFGT allocation, I’m thinking an airplane. Way faster...

Most modern sports cars are excellent and can do everything pretty well. Depends on what's important.

If you have excellent driving roads in your area, I would look at a 991+ GT3/RS/Touring. PDK in a GT3 RS remains undefeated for pure performance, or if you feel the need for a manual you could drop to a regular GT3 or a Touring. Very useable cars with telepathic steering, timeless aesthetics, and a holy grail powertrain that won't be around much longer. Maintenance isn't super hateful either. 991.1 cars are very reasonable right now and you can get 991.2s at good prices as well.
What's the best Porsche forum to help me get educated? I've been looking at GT3's for the last while and I need more information.

Pete K, I’ve got something a lot cheaper for sale and people tell me if you stand it up on its tail it looks like a rocket ship!

Heh, heh! Too late—one of my two New Years resolutions is to get back in the cockpit! So I’m already committed to that. (My other resolution is to watch less TV, especially “news shows”, and instead read more books)
