So long M3 Hello 991 Carrera S

After owning 2 m3's i felt like it was time for a change. I was on the fence about an ESS-625 kit to make the car feel new with the additional HP but didnt want the risk or to throw away my warranty. So there i was just a couple days away from signing paperwork on a 2013 GTR when i decided to go to the Porsche dealer to rule them out.

I went there with the idea that they wouldnt be that great and i was GTR bound but damn i was wrong.

I never owned a Porsche before but i really dont think that i will miss my M3 all that much. Dont get me wrong the M3 and everything about is what makes it great but this car is completely different so you cant make a fair comparison.

Here is a photo of my previous M3



The new wheels

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S
Guards Red
PDK
Sport Chrono
Pasm-S
Sport exhaust
etc. etc.

So what was it about the Porsche that swung you that way instead of the GTR?

Just kidding. I'm really tempted to get a 997 911 and do the Sport Classic retrofit.

Mainly it was the sound and looks then once i drove it that was it. The GTR is a monster of a car but did not give the same sensations driving it like the Porsche did.

A GTR is a fast car but it's no beauty. This Porsche is a real beauty.

The driving experience that the Porsche delivers is very different and will take me some getting used to. I plan on doing an HPDE to learn the limits of the car and what it likes and doesnt like.

A GTR is a great car, especially if you're about 25 years old. Great call going with a 991.

congrats on the new 991... i switched from an m3 to a Pcar as well a few months ago. too bad it isnt a minty fresh 991 but i am happy with my switch. the Pcar is so much more responsive than the m3... i have yet to drive an 991 but all the reviews of it are very positive. maybe a 991 GT3 for me one day....

Congrats, looks great... The GT-R and a Carrera S definitely are two different cars. Just because a car is faster (straight or handling), doesn't mean it's more fun to drive.
