Yes funny how the TurboS came top of their group test, for the GT2RS to come bottom in a similar one a little later??

2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

The problem with a GT2RS is getting all that power down cleanly from the starting line - that and the lost time with gear changes...

I'd still have one though Grin

Agreed, I'm surprised there's not a 2wd loony button in the new S... Mr. Green

Juicy looking automobile
I just hope somebody buys one so at least it makes it down the food chain. Something to look forward to.

Any GT2 vs Turbo times from rest to 60 can often favour the Turbo.

However, from a rolling start in second(from about 25mph) or when dropping down a gear or two and giving it the beans the GT2 is king.

The GT2RS is my all time favourite car so I'd still have one over the new Turbos. I'd still rather have the manual gearchange than the PDK even if I 'lose' time with manual gearchanges.

Shouldn't this car be faster than 2.7 seconds to 60 mph? The GTR is about 500 pounds heavier and hits those numbers.
