Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Even the cheapest GT C is one heck of a big chunk of change – far more expensive than the entry-level Porsche 911 Cabriolet or BMW M8 Convertible. The pricier GT R Roadster is big step up in price again, costing more than seemingly highly exclusive models, such as the McLaren 570S Spider or Aston Martin DB11 Volante.
Fuel, tax, insurance and tyre bills are also going to be steep, but the same is true of its rivals. As the saying goes: if you can afford to buy it, you can probably afford to run it.
The GT C Roadster comes reasonably equipped, with 19in alloy wheels at the front and 20in wheels at the rear, dual-zone climate control, power-fold door mirrors, red brake calipers, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror and keyless entry. There are plenty of pricey performance options, such as track-focused carbon-ceramic brakes, and styling upgrades, should you wish to stand out from the crowd.
In terms of which GT Roadster you should buy, we reckon stick to the GT C. As we've described, the GT in any guise isn't the best sports car to drive, so if it takes your fancy, enjoy its looks and noise for the least outlay.
