the problem with the r8s is the electronics

if you don't want the "extras" then its an awesome care

but the navigation/TPMS/Blue tooth/keyless is out of date even. I am not sure why audi would place their 2009 interface into their 2014 face lifted r8

991TT is sick but I'm sure that thing will be at least 150k. Out of budget at the moment.

991TT. Single best daily driver available. Plus no r8 v8 or otherwise will touch it for performance and handling.

i LOVE the R8 and think that in most cases this is a TOUGH decision.

In this case, though, its super easy. The goals are "low key" and "airstrip HP"

The 911T is *so* clearly the answer its nuts.

997.1T, Mezger engine, stick... Huge HP easily. Blends in. Not so insanely expensive.

I have a friend with an SC R8 V10 and its a terrifying and insane car, but it was super expensive to do that, it's a pretty complex proposition, and it attracts massive attention.

I like a car that can perform well in a multiple-discipline environment. Not a car that is designed for a singluar purpose. So you are correct...I am not interested in a GT3.
Btw, the R8 is hardly "numb" as the other guy said. Take it from a GT3 owner who has tracked the R8 as well. The R8 is razor sharp

Thx for all the good tips guys I really appreciate it.

One thing that will make a difference as well is that the transmission will require to be shifted from the steering wheel. I'm not giving up on MT's entirely as I have another car with an MT that I drive sometimes but after tracking/racing with the DCT, I love the balance at the track (shifting mid-corner, etc) and the acceleration with a higher HP application is just undeniable.

So an older 996 is out unfortunately. That certainly would have been the best cost-effective option. I need to look into how much HP the PDK can handle. Doing an trans build for 1,000 HP sounds very expensive and may not even be possible at the moment. I have seen the vids of the UGR R8 V10 with the DCT so it looks like that trans is capable of handling the power.

If its gotta be an auto, tough call. I am not as familiar with the 997.2 cars with the new DI motors....

The older 997.1 mezger cars make a ton of power.

Perhaps, what you really need is not another car.

Maybe this will fit the bill:

The 997.2 PDK is already pretty quick. It's just an exhaust and tune away from 600 hp (crank). Beyond that, we don't know the torque limitations of the PDK. Supposedly around high 500 ft/lbs but I believe Champion motorsports has claimed they figured out something but keeping it hush hush for now.

Very true, 997 turbo s is a 130 mph trap car stock. To 140/150 mph its about 4 seconds faster than an r8 v10, hell its 2 seconds faster to that point than a 458 italia too.

I'd probably go with the P-Car 9 times out of 10. The R8's don't really do much for me.

I guess it depends on the OP budget. They both are about 130K for a 2011. A few more grand and the 997.2 TT-S is maxed out but doing 135@9.7 (until a bigger turbo is put on it). The R8-V10 needs tens of thousands more to become reliably FI to surpass that.

The TT-S comes with carbon ceramics, the R8 comes with more bling. The TT-S comes with 2 child seats in the back, the R8 is strictly 2 seater. I actually use the back seats for my kids and I wanted LESS bling so for me, it was a no-brainer.

Why not a McLaren MP4-12C? That's ANOTHER 100 hp on top of the Turbo S and with 400 less pounds! You can get a gently used one for under 200 these days. That's a phenomenal car for a roll-on airport type race. Plus, those cars trap mid 130s stock!!! (so you keep the factory warrantee). What other cars trap mid 130s stock for under 200K?

Underground racing r8 is the only thing I can think of. Idk I mean.. Why is the GTR not an option? For the price the power that car puts out is unbeatable. With some mods you'll be putting out a crap load of power.
