Here's me chasing down a 997 GT3 RS that was totally stripped out and had motons. PCA advanced group.

My car was stock power and stock weight at the time (these days it... isn't )

944 in the video is LS swapped and gutted-- not slow either!

This was one of the key reasons I didn't drive my Porka to work in Canberra. Not to say I won't keep looking and watching GT3s on Carsales

Yep, that was outside the finance side of the treasury building. If you walk outside the treasury main entrance, at most you will see the execs driving a golf, only recently did one of the execs get the new 328i.

I'm a big fan of the new GT3. Even with the PDK only I'm sure it will be an incredible drivers car.
I have been wondering how much power the 991 Turbo will have if the NA GT3 has 475hp already...

I like the video. The GT3 engine / exhaust sound actually reminds me of a cross between the BMW N52 and N54 flat 6's with a much higher redline.

Preuninger introducing the gen 2 GT3 RS in 2010:

Quote:
Andreas Preuninger: PDK and Paddles ( what he said at the Gen 2 RS Launch in 2010 )
no heavy, flappy paddle gearbox (Preuninger: "Grandmas can use paddles. They aren't challenging")
Source Top Gear


But Preuninger didn't burden us with the technicalities. Instead he said, "First, the PDK weighs 66 pounds. Second, PDK does not have a clutch you can control, and if you want to do really big drifts, sometimes you need a clutch."

Then he said, "The manual gearbox in the GT3 is the best match for the purist."

Had a Porsche Cup Car on our track day on Friday - it is doing laps around all our cars - even the radicals. It was not following race line either, but was still flying!

I think the actual situation is the Porsche family now controls the board of VW and VW owns Porsche. In a way it's mission accomplished.

Looking closely at the 991 GT3 and it is pretty close to what I am trying to achieve with my mods. Except there's no harness or roll cage.
