I have loved 911's since I was a wee lad... But they simply refuse to change the styling. This "new" gt3 looks exactly like the old gt3

Straight six? When'd they shoehorn that into the ass of the 911? Oh wait, they didn't. Nice miss, editor.

Who ****ing cares! I hate how the 'Ring has recently become the great equalizer in determining what is a good car and what isn't.

It's a cool track, but it means ****-all in the real world, and the vast majority of car buyer will never set foot on that track.

The 991 chassis Cup and RSR have been spotted testing. Watch carefully. Two different cars in this video...

So disappointing they're not using any 6 speeds. There's no reason you shouldn't be able to order a 6 speed version. I think the 2010's and below will really hold their value now.

That's not the only failure in the article. They mention the weight expectation being 3075lbs. .......but that's the weight of the normal 991 911, and the GT3 is always lighter. Rumors are it will be just under 2900lbs.

Also, until I see a press release from Porsche, I believe they will offer a 6spd along with the PDK option.

To be fair, that driver is driving the balls off of it.
That car just keeps getting better.
I, for one, am a fan of PDK in this car.

I stand by my statement: art in motion has never looked so good (I've never been enthralled with the F40, sorry).

The F40 is cool for what it is (a race car with a license plate mount)

Given the ability to buy one (and drive it, maintain it etc...) I would pass with zero hesitation.
