Very good brief review. Car looks great, especially with the de-cluttered badging on the arse. I'm getting the feeling though in all the reviews I've read/seen 'it's a very good car, BUT...' etc. not sure it'll make a difference to most drivers but it's all psychological, if people say its not as good people will believe it.

Chris Harris is good at what he does, so that seemed to be like an 8/10
road test. Just wonder whether it'll seem that big in the flesh....not long to
wait now till we all have a peek at it !! Grin

I just watched this again (must be at least the 6th time), and noticed Chris says "It feels like a step on from the last GT3 RS". I think any reservations i had have pretty much just vanished Thumb

That comment has to make it a 9 or 9.5 / 10 !

2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

Great little review. Can't wait to see one in the flesh. Having this growing feeling I would really like a 991 but not the right stage in family life to be jumping back in. Also my biggest bugbear is the step up in price.
