The level of enjoyment is insane. It is a much more exotic experience. I have to say the worst part about it is the long front overhang for driving around. I will probably switch to a 997.2 with front axle lift in the next few years.

You can install an aftermarket lift kit via TechArt and some other companies.

The only thing holding me back from a 911 is driveway clearance.
Very steep transition from the street, i need to 3 point to get the stock suspension e92 without scraping.
If you have any major concerns you can always test drive one and ask to bring it home. The GT3's come from the factory with coilovers so it all depends on your ride height. Honestly I couldn't tell you the exact lift on them but it is significant.

Totally but I am not into adding that to the car. It's not a necessity but I would like the other updates of a 997.2 down the road too with the 3.8l too.

Yes but it is completely worth it if the worst happens.

Can't speak on the 997.2 GT3s but on the .2S cars the front end was less bouncy, felt more buttoned down more like a front engine car. I loved my 997.1S.

After years of DD a 911 I don't see how you'd have any clearance problems at STOCK ride height. One of the big advantages over a corvette which seems to scrap everywhere- the 911 goes over crazy speed bumps, up driveways, aprons, bad parking lots, never scraped anything on mine.

Honestly I scrape more in the m3 at stock height, which is still pretty uncommon.

But, but, but... That's what I want!

Kudos. That's my goal once the Bimmer gets paid for

This was my ride today. Must say I love the exhaust in sport +. Made my Akra Evo sound kind of tame .

My Grand Sport does scrape on some speed humps and very steep driveways, but it has a very aggressive "stage 2" OEM ground effects kit. The regular Stingray, or a GS/Z06 with the "stage 1" aero (less aggressive chin spoiler) is totally fine.
