mmm.... this time the owner is right to hold on even if he's not using it much.

Limited production engines in a Porsche are good to hold onto. RS = R$

Mass production engines in a Porsche you want to drive or move on.
Each day the odometer or calendar move the car is worth less and less.

Looks like the ones on AutoTrader are going for $260 large. That's a lot of money collecting dust.

Hope nothing worse than some dust writing happens to her.

At least they were courteous enough to do that on the glass and not the body.

If that were my car, I'd be super POed!

He's probably paying to store it wherever it's at and would not be too happy about some idiot, possibly affiliated with the storage place, writing on it

Side note...me want!

The owner doesn't drive it because it's not Speed Yellow !

Oh yes. Not many made.

If you really want to see a GT2RS in action, look on YouTube for Jeff Zwart on the Pike Peak Challenge from 2010 or 2011. I don't remember the exact year he ran the GT2RS from Californmia to Colorado to run the race.
