I will never be able to afford one, but it makes me sad nonetheless.
Exige S, i guess...
It's alright many interpret it wrong. The GT3, GT2, RS, RSR, were built for racing homologation purposes. The previous GT3 still had manuals, because PDK was not good enough for racing yet. Now it is, they have to push technology.
Software and electronics has the most to be gained for performance. Today's software algorithms are far more advanced than they used to be, so rear wheel steering can be controlled more precisely and naturally. Such like how stability control work today vs back in the 90s.
As someone say earlier, the basic Carrera with no options, that's was the purist choice.
