Now that is R&D.

And some complain about the cost of a Porsche.
Built like tanks. Not knocking them but I would like to see a Lambo or Ferrari go through that.

S PDK in Carrera White with Espresso leather and sport design package please.

+1...remember 2 years ago when a STOCK GT3 RS came in 13th in the 24 hours of nurburgring? No ferrari, lambo, aston, etc could have done that let alone finished the race.
People complain about pricing, but Porsche's attention to detail, their quality, materials/fit/finiosh are all second to none and their cars will take anything you can throw at them and do it over and over again.

Car looks sooo good.

7spd Manual! Can you say 90mph...at 2K rpm, lol.

I've always loved Porsche, this helps me justify it.

Porsches dont need justification.

There is no substitute.

And there never will be.

I love the new 991S/997 GT3/RS/4.0/GT2RS but I prefer a 458. Sorry.

Seeing this video makes it seem so silly to read threads written by little teenagers about how Porsche is not a great handling car, and "in their expert opinion" the 911 has fallen behind other cars because the engine isn't in the middle.

Thats because they are, and to be quite frank, idiots. The know nothing.

The 911 is one of, if not the best handling car on the market at any given time. It has always had the best steering feel, by a large margin. They are scalpels, that do everything well when it comes to performance.
Plus, the 991 is very much unlike 911s of the past, and is even very different from the 997 variations as it is becoming a mid engined car as seen in the 991 since the motor has only been moved forward thanks to a lengthened wheel base.

The 991 is probably the best all around car the world has ever seen. Just the mere fact that a 3200 lb car with 400 hp can match the 3400 lb 570 hp ferrari 458 around the ring shows you just what Porsche can do with their 'entry' level car that has significantly less hp. Just imagine what the GT2, GT3 and turbo are going to do.

The 911 is simply the best showing of engineering at any given time for any car...and I wont even touch on the fact that they have embarassed Ferrari, BMW, etc for 50 year on the race track at every turn (pun intended) and have been so consistent at winning on the race track or in best drivers or car of the year awards they make the Yankees look inconsistent.
