  18. bad car…sorry Porsche

  19. lol a fanboy for a car he’ll never have.

  20. this was good porn

  21. Widowmaker 2.0

  22. In layman’s term, it is still a Porsche 911 with the engine in the back. And since day 1, it is slow-in then fast-out. Maybe modern technology allowed the suspension greater entry speed than 911s of old, however, these modern reiterations are still heavier compared to them.

  23. What impresses me is that Porsche has kept the 911 at the front of the performance car pack since 1963. Yes, the Corvette has been around 10 years longer, but it has been through 7 complete changes. The 911 has been refined steadily and retains it’s basic layout. I do have a problem with a $200k+ 911 though. It’s gotten too heavy and too expensive.

  24. I can afford these cars idiot. Clearly you cant with that pos in your avatar.

  25. False idiot
    GTR 7:18.6
    GT2 7:18


  27. I just watched a video, where a newer 911 turbo s, barely beat a newer gt-r in a quarter mile. It also barely beat it, from 0-60..YES, I KNOW, the gt-r is quicker w/a great launch. I’m pretty sure that the gt-2R is a bit quicker, and a better handling car around a track, than a turbo s, So, if the ZR1, is quicker than a GT2R, around nurburgring, it must be one hell of a car..The NEW Turbo s, is 2 tenths of a second quicker than a ZR1, from 0-60. ZR1–3.3, and turbo s–3.1..:):):)

  28. Funny how the writer’s took the "this is probably your first car" approach to explaining everything.  I suppose that’s who is watching though.

  29. not even the jews buy american cars ….lol

  30. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup PS2 tires are the best racing tires!!!!

  31. Engine over the back achsle gives the car more grip at the corner exit! It’s never been a disadvantage, if it had been Porsche wouldn’t have stuck to this design principle! 911s have always been about "slow in, fast out".

  32. like everyone is saying, GTR is the king of kings!
    Nismo gt3 kills everything Porsche has made.
    Even beats the lap time of the so called 918.
    old gt2rs cars don’t even stand a chance lol

  33. Wow I love how nerdy this is. Can’t believe I’m five years late to it

  34. I know… Its just the 95% flagwaving nutcases making the rest of the 5% look bad.

  35. I need one of these in my life

  36. you are a fucking red neck piece of shit ! go kill yourself, im not german but, german cars usually are 1000X better than american cars. you fucking red neck !

  37. GT3RS even quicker…on some tracks.

  38. This is the original widow maker!!!!

  39. I apologize for some of my fellow citizen’s arrogance and stupidity. Not everyone in America is like that.

  40. there are only some cars that are better then this on the track #1 Gumpert Apollo #2 Corvette ZR1 #3 Dodge Viper Srt-10 ACR and last Nissan’s GTR

  41. And makes me ashamed I am….

  44. I just saw one of these at my dealership and it looks amazing in person. Love that it’s manual only

  45. interesting bit of information.. the GT2 is an animal, but I’d still take the new GT3 instead.

  46. The tween turbo system hate high temperatures!! It would have been even faster if you had driven it in a could country!

  47. Go check again, the GT-R and GT2 RS is faster than the ZR1 around the Nurburgring.

  48. Well done.

  49. What an insane car. Praying Porsche will make a 991 GT2

  50. Why does the thin tread depth make the nose responsive?
