What's best - a Porsche 997 GT3 RS or a 991 GT3 Touring?

In the privileged position of contemplating a 997.2 GT3 RS or a 991.2 GT3 touring. Obviously manual linkages are my thing having owned a string of manual 911s over the years and my current pdk equipped turbo simply being too sterile. My question is longevity, enjoyment and passing it on to my son when I'm no longer sharp enough to use the car for it's intended purpose.

There are no bad choices here, as both versions of the 911 are outstanding machines in their own right. Arguably the GT3 Touring is more usable than the track-focussed GT3 RS and so has the potential to be driven more frequently, but the GT3 RS will likely hold its value better over the years.

Quick, sharp and fun yet also docile in traffic, comfortable and comparatively practical.
All-new 911 is lighter and faster. Retains familiar shape with a new interior. Six speed PDK or seven speed manual transmissions. Still the definitive sports car.
