Question on Video I saw on Youtube

Hey Guys,

I recently watched a video on youtube,
..i'll try to find the link again....

...which compared the M3 vs the GTR vs the 911 GT3


they mention in the video that the GT3 is the best performing 911 out there now....I thought the new 911 GT2 was the top of the line 911 now?....how come they dont compare the new GTR which is wicked fast to the GT2?

Either way....it is a true testament to how good the M3 is!!!....in that they are comparing it to the GTR and 911 GT3.

Mike

It's because the GT3 is the "race car"...the "track car"... and that, most times, it is faster around a racetrack.

I think I have seen that video a long time ago. I'm not sure but, I think it was from autoexpress or auto car magazines.
Note: at that time, the GT2 wasn't launched.

the GT2 is Porsche's flagship now. but that doesn't mean its Porsche's ultimate performance car...take BMW's flagship car for instance, the M6 - sure its fast as hell in a straight line and respectable in the corners, but its still FAR too heavy and compromising to be BMW's current best performer. in short, both the GT3 and the GT3RS are better cars for the track (or any ultimate performance/handling experience for that matter). indeed the term "flagship model" has changed quite a bit over time.

standard GT-R is to 997 Turbo as GT-R V-spec is to 997 GT2. hope that analogy clears it up.
