Will you keep your NGT for the long haul?

I've been thinking about getting an NGT and was wondering how many of you feel it's a keeper, let's say >10 years (or your death, whichever comes first! 🤪)

I'm trying to get a feel for whether or not owners feel like it's got the same staying power as the FGT. I know it's a much higher level of complexity, which does kinda concern me, but hey ya only live once, right ...

Thank you ... and feel free to PM me if you prefer not to post publicly; I'll keep it to myself.

I’m at about 2,700 miles on my 2019 Gulf Heritage. It’s definitely a keeper. I love it.

You are asking the choir. Why don't you see high mileage GTs for sale.?

Extrap, I have a 2006 and a 2020. I'm 68. The GT's will be part of my Estate. I hope my sons won't sell them either.

3 years so far and building a new garage for it. I guess the test ride I let you take in mine during Rally 13 left a mark on your psyche.

It's not everyday that the greatest car company in the world delivers a
Lemans Racer to your front door.
Definitely and absolutely a keeper!
Love my 3rd generation GT.

Actually quite a few here have sold. Some of the reasons have been, profit taking, physically not fitting well in the car, and service fears. Service fears include, the possible costs, but also not having a servicing dealer in the area, or even in their state.

Agree with Andy Service is the number 1 issue even not including cost. Most super cars are expensive to service but at least it is available in most big cities. Sending my car to Joe at Miliken before warranty was out was the best I could do to help with piece of mind.

Want to keep mine but also worried about service. How many servicing dealers are going to continue to service these cars long term? Will MM be an option?
