Why are Porsche centres and other dealers pricing low mileage 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS (997 era) over the brand new price? For example a 2010 GT3 is selling for around £85,000 when a new car was around £80,000 without options. Also a 2010 GT3 RS is selling for £149,000 and another one for £164,000 when the new price in 2010 was around £104,000 without options with a GT2 RS selling for £300,000 recently when it was £164,000 new (ok only 500 of these made but a £136,000 price rise in 4 years?) what is happening to the market for these cars (have the GT3, GT3 RS and GT2 and GT2RS cars from the 997 era become classics?) and other supercars? I know the top 0.1 percent of global society is getting richer at the moment but is this enough to justify these prices?

I would put it down to supply and demand. These cars have a huge following globally, and will be exported all over. So their values will tend to hold or rise over time. See the likes of the Ford GT, which also never really depreciated, then appreciated in price. It's an odd market.

Super cars and classics are big business. Everything else depreciates.

If you think about it once the car is no longer produced the original sale price no longer has any relevance to the vehicle's price. The vehicle is an object in existence and will sell for whatever potential buyers are willing to pay.

Most cars lose value as with age they become worn, damange and less reliable, and nicer newer versions come out with more features. However with rare cars there's low supply, high demand if the car is good and they're less likely to suffer from wear, tear and damage as enthusiasts tend to look after them well.

They were highly prized cars when new and it was never as easy as to just walk in to a Porsche Centre to buy one.

Good condition ones are in high demand and not many units worldwide are in mint condition that will get on the pre-loved market.
