It seems as though Porsche is prioritising high-margin, low-volume models to protect the overall profitability of the business:

Sells in such tiny numbers (relatively) that even at €500k, with the huge development costs, I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t make a profit on these. More of a ‘halo’ product, I’d say...

I do not believe those GT models even give Porsche their development costs back. they contribute a lot to brand image but the profits come from the likes of the Macan and Cayenne

They’re talking about people who buy these cars (GT3 R) to race in events. As the cars are €511k plus VAT and options, not to mention running costs, I think it’s mostly a millionaires-only sport/hobby. ;)
