Next installment from Europe.

We had two tuned Porsches from Techart for 2.5 days in Leonberg, Germany. First day was on a big airfield (which we shared with some prototype Mercs - no pics allowed :( ) which enabled us to let loose.

One was the 997 GT2-based GT Street RS with 700hp and 860Nm - unbelievably fast car, the acceleration in 2nd gear was just mind blowing! With the sound of the turbos whistling behind your head and the huge rear tyres struggling for grip its an amazing experience. Other than the Koenigsegg nothing felt as fast.

The other was the Cayman-based GT Sport - much more mild mannered. Gets the N/A 3.8L and puts out 385hp so its plenty quick and sounds good too, and handling is as expected from a Cayman. Seats from a 996 GT3.

Also got driven to dinner in the Techart Cayenne (Magnum), absolute beast - I need one as a daily! :D

700+ hp and RWD...

Beautiful interior, supportive carbon fibre seats with a nice mix of alcantara and yellow details.

Porsches are the best, and that's all there is to it.

when did Porsche mount the pedals from the top for the first time, rather than the floor mount?

Which year/model (911 type)
