ISF and GT2 today

Saw my first ISF and GT2 today.

Took a buddy to the local Lexus dealer so he could test drive the new ISF. They had a beautiful white demo. Gorgeous car in real life. I still dont like the exhaust but the rest of it looks much better in person. Interior is a little over the top for me. I enjoy the spartan BMW approach more, but thats just me. Overall surprised by how nice the Lexus looked in the flesh. They were offering a good deal to my buddy to. What an amazing time to get some great deals on V8 powered sports cars.

Later on tonight I stopped by the local Porsche dealer. I was just bored and wanted to window shop. They had a brand new white GT2 sitting on their showroom floor. Man is this a mean looking Porsche! I think if I had to put that kind of money down on a Porsche I would by a GT3 RS but the GT2 is intimidating.

i agree with you that the is-f is much better in person. i saw a maroon red color and it was menacing!

can't say much about the GT2 though.

I bet the force fed boxer engine sounded great!

GT2 looks way better in real life than in pics. Saw a black one at Cars & Coffee here in socal. It was sick and looked exactly like the one on the Porsche website webspecial. Black and badass.

I saw a 911 Turbo S in Newport Beach before, but you also see CGTs and SLRs there like it is nothing, but I haven't seen a GT2 on the street yet.

ISF seems too bloated for my taste. The IS 250s and IS350s are better looking imho.

Have you seen the ISF in person.... in pictures they do look bloated. In real life the effect is much different...
