Wow, thanks very much!

Interesting stuff, besides the cosmetical changes PASM with LSD is awesome!

A big downside is Cobalt blue being discontinued.


Best regards, south

Don't confuse the GT2 with the Turbo, very little about the two cars is similar.

I know the difference. The 911 Turbos (including the GT2) aren't the cat's meow anymore IMHO.

The problem for me with the 911s (ALL) is they have the engine in the rear and there is only so much refinement and evolutionary engineering that can be done. The platform is dead but Porsche refuses to innovate (which they can).
