I challenged Porsche the other day when I wrote in an Uncooked Truth, basically calling them fools for not having a manual gearbox in the latest iteration of the GT3, the 991 911.
I said that Porsche opted for a PDK-only GT3 because they were itching to beat the Nissan GT-R, that’s it and that’s all. I also believe that a PDK can’t be nearly as much fun, thrilling, nor as involving as a good ol’ fashioned manual.
Well Evo have tested the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 in their latest video review. They’ve even tested it against the McLaren MP4-12C on the track, and a GT-R on the road.
So am I right that they’re trying to beat the GT-R? Could I be correct that the manual would be better, and that a “raw” sports car with paddles is less engaging? Well, you be the judge. It’s worth every minute, I assure you. The sound, look, and sex appeal is fantastic.
Congratulations and shame on you, Porsche, all at the same time.
