        • You might want to try the 996.1 GT3 before you make that statement ;-) The 991.2 is one of the best sports cars at the moment thought, so in the end it is a matter of preference.

      • Assuming this image had not been interfered with(!) this demonstrates how much larger each new 911 series is than the last... fact remains that on country roads a smaller car is quicker than a larger car... a new Cayman is quicker than 911 Turbo S... of course on a wider road or track the more powerful car wins every time... but back to real world driving Mr Webber... if we race on narrow country lanes you in a Turbo S and me in a base Cayman you may finish ahead of me but I'll be nudging your bumper. Well OK ramming your bumper as you will stop quicker... shall we try it mate? One of my first 911's in my photo.

        • I think there’s a bit of small/far away going on there! ^BJWS

        • Thanks, Father Ted, but it's only one car-length difference.

          991 is 80mm wider, 110mm longer. However, it is to be fair 5mm lower, so perhaps that's a factor.

      • I think you should be comparing 99X.2 GT3s as I see the respective 2nd generarions versions being massively improved over their 1st generations.

      • A few weeks ago I did the exact same thing, although I did not have a race track at my disposal. The story will follow soon in Motor Car Journal. Are you guys going to post a video about this?
