I like the technology of the GT-R.The numbers speak for themselves and believe me the GTR has plenty of grip. I had a 997.1tt a couple of year ago and I prefer the GTR hands down. The GT3 is an awesome car, but I think it's more for a traditionalist who really wants a 6speed. I'll give it to you on the soundtrack, but that can be fixed with a simple mid pipe. I personally like the stock sound a well. All that is subjective. The numbers speak for themselves. Here are some :
