lol what. This car is fast as shit. My 2014 regular GT3 was also fast as shit in a straight line. Have you ever driven one? These are absolutely incredible cars.

I drove a 991.2 3RS on the track and it wasn't as quick as my M4 in the straights. Revved to hell, but just didn't shock me.

With the emphasis on the track and the "giant leap" from the GT3 to the GT3 RS, I'm thinking this is probably nowhere near as practical and daily-able. I mean, that's the point, but people start rationalizing that it would be "ok" on the street for everyday use.

It is a bad ass car! But the new GT3 is so good, I donít know who really needs this upgrade to RS.

Clearly a track car, i mean you can drive it to the track and cars n coffee but I don't think it is suitable even as a weekender. That's fine, it's a gentleman's club racing car for the well heeled enthusiast. One thing with Porsche GT cars, they belt around a track all freakin day, no over heating, no boiled brakes etc, just turn laps relentlessly.
