Take, YSS for example who spends more time in the GT3 instead of his F430...why? according to him, cuz it's just more fun! plus it's also quicker around the track :)

not quite the same as what we're discussing.

one's a track oriented car v a road oriented car with GT3 V 430

the other comparison is two road cars.

everything else you said is bull too...but it's too late to multi quote :)

yea it is getting late and I haven't finished packing yet...sigh...

re the GT3 vs F430, i realize the former is a track oriented car, but why does he drive it as a daily driver then? because of preference due to his perception!

yer just jealous cuz my bull is better then yer bull :P

Haven't been in the 997 GT3, but yeah it's definitely more focussed compared to the very soft (in stock form) F430.

But in the 996 GT3, apart from the coolness of the race cage and slight difficulty getting in (my X1/9 is more "race-spec" as far as entry/exit is concerned) it really isn't that exciting.  It sounds like a dustbuster, when it goes hard you get the feel but not the noise.  One of the SFR team had a GT3 with race exhaust thought, now THAT was a different matter!!

The 997 though, that's the first Porsche this side of a Carrera GT which actually sounds really good from the showroom floor.  As I've mentioned, YSS's GT3 had a real supercar howl to it, rather than the usual laconic German "I is going fast" random noise.

because the GT3 is fun....a lot more fun than a carrera s. everyone knows that.

there is one other possibility.......

maybe the G is just not that damn good. i've been offered drives so often...i really should do it.

Banned  :shut:

hey...i'm not the one saying the porsche is better!

i just can't see how it can be.......HOWEVER.....i'm basing that on ferrari ownership but will the gallardo numbers. maybe i'm being too kind to the lambo, but if MY car had the power to weight figures of the G it would most certainly be no contest.

of course, i love my car.


errrrrr...p.s.....for the dumb people...obviously i'm talking about the 355ch

yes, he could have also been fed up with the number of times the G had problems.

all right gents, lets do this...post 5 most important vehicle characteristics that you would want in a car, assuming you can only have 1 car. don't over think it, put down what comes to mind within 10 secs or less, in no specific order...

Here's mine:
- seats up to 4
- fast!
- firm handling at high speeds but comfortable at low speed
- reliable
- comfortable

irrelevant!

this is awesome!

I'd be curious what Mark's opinion would be comparing a 997 TT to a Gallardo. Often wondered why he didn't go that route. I've asked him but since I can't remember his answer, it couldn't have been that convincing :)
