Im sorry looks like the bat mobile to me...I know thats the draw of the Ferrari the wow styling but I always found it over the top for me. The days of the 308s is pretty much the last Ferrari that I found attractive, although the new 458 is a beaut. I think the Lambo Gallardo is a better looking car than the Ferrari.

I always thought Porsche was a better looking car, I love the GT3.

Either way as was mentioned..arguing which is better looking is like arguing what color is better or what flavor of ice cream.

Different strokes for different folks. No need to get personal, buddy. I could say the same to you and say you have no taste. Not going to get anywhere. I have my opinion and you have yours.

if it wasn't for german insurance (9k a year, with a clean record), I'd be driving 02-03 996tt... Those things cost as much as a used M3, but are wicked! For like 2-3k you can upgrade the turbos to put it at 500bhp...

I agree. not a fan of the regular 599. but the 599 GTO is the best looking/sounding supercar (better looking than this new porsche by miles).

I went to the cars and coffee at Classic BMW today, and I will admit, the only pictures I took from the event consists of Porsches

Like the first pic, of course I'm a little partial. Not fond of the clear tails (on a white gt3) or side decals on a gt3 at all. Too much tint too.

The Cayman looks pretty nice too.

Almost purchased a 997TT about a year ago. Car had a tune,Catless exhaust,cooler plugs and damn it pulled so hard but at 140 it didn't feel safe due to the shorter wheelbase so i didn't go for it.

But, yeah high revving NA for me too.

I will say that my .1 turbo without PDK was stupid fast. Kind of like Kirk asking Scottie for warp 8 and Scottie delivering. I can only imagine what another 50 hp, PDK and a few less lbs does.

BTW, I never noticed the minor occasional lag in my 335 until I got my GT3.
Gt3 is a whole different ball game. A masterpiece IMO. Nothing like a high revvin engine that screams past 8k. Mmmmm mmmm mmmm.
Better than the m3's s65 sound is the m6's s85 near redline....perfection. And better than the s85's torque curve is my boss 302 road runner v8, and better yet with an even better torque curve and throttle response is my 427 in my z06

felt unsafe at 140? something wrong there. 911 turbos feel safe @ 190; as does the GT3

Car felt very unstable and allover the road but to be honest,it just had PSS10s installed so i dont think it was setup correct that's why. Been in a GT2rs and that thing is badass and handles like its on rails at any speed.

Light turns green and we (or I thought we) both floored it. I launch and in first gear I'm a good car length ahead of the 911 Turbo. Now I'm wondering why because with AWD, I know that there is no way I could beat a Turbo out of the hole. Then I hear the sound of a jet engine (or the 911's turbos) as the Turbo blows by me like I'm standing still as I'm shifting into 2nd gear!!!! He was obviously toying with me!!!! But that is an awesome car!!! The way it looked and the way it sounded as it dusted me... We then stop at the next red light and he had a huge smile on his face!!! I told him that he had a bad ass car and gave him the thumbs up....


This is the whole reason why people have a S/C amagine that... lmao it would of turned from toying to destroying

As the owner of both an M3 and a Turbo......I love them both. I will add that the M3 is not even close when it comes to straight line speed.
