Anyone else - I'd say they were joking...

The GT3 looks pretty good! Nissan had better get that Nismo GTR here soon.

Thank God - it was hard to imagine they'd be so stupid as to swap them around on one model - but then again they are releasing their track focussed street car without a manual gearbox.

the paddles are right for up, left for down and the selector follows race car protocol with back for up, forward for down in the 'proper' fashion.

I'll take the last RS in 4 ltr guise thanks very much.

It's getting very hard to tell these dropped egg models apart. They all look much the same to me.

This is the car I have been waiting for and think they have done a sensational job and it is what I am now saving for.

BUT

Last sunday I went for a drive with MHH, was fun!!!
Part of what I enjoyed about the drive was the sence / feeling of occasion I get when driving MY Porsche (yes the fact I own and have earnt it matters with that feeling).

I fear the this feeling will be slowly disappear as Porsche start to release more styles (cheeper) of cars.
Then will the feeling be as strong and proud. Or will the feeling be about just driving a 911 ????

This is happening with most manufactures.

This is where the GTR will start to come into the picture (I like them and believe they are great cars)
Nissan has now produced a car and about to release a nismo version.

Will that feeling become a thing of the past???

Is the feeling not going to be brand related but specific car model related.



Now back to the car.
the specs between this new GT3 and the GTR about the same, for a driver of my talents they are far beyond me so the differances are irrelivant.

How do you pick your next car???

Looks

Has the GTR killed the Super car???

I would add that in addition to the above factors I choose cars based on the feeling I get when driving them.

If you get a pro driver, I think the difference in lap times between a GT3 and a GTR are small. I suspect the GTR would 'win'.

I don't think that's the issue here. I've always wanted a GTR and the R35 does everything I want - daily driver, tourer, circuit days, drifts (sort of) - its almost perfect. The GT3 demands a level of input that I can't provide at the moment. I suspect it's a more involving drive. Porsche also have many decades of history behind them.

There will always be a market for great cars and I think there are some great cars to choose from. I also think the GTR keeps Porsche honest 8-)

Also - if McLaren, Nissan, Porsche, Lexus, and Ferrari can build bullet proof supercars, this should send a clear message to other, less reliable, Supercar manufacturers!
