So Ollie thinks he’s wrong wanting the new Porsche 911 GT3 with the 6spd manual? He’s right. It is wrong, oh so wrong, the 6spd three-pedal 911 GT3 is an anachronism. An amazing one, though, which elevates Porsche’s purist GT3 to another level.
So what if it loses some acceleration over the PDK paddle-shifter? You. Just. Won’t. Care. One perfectly blipped, wrist-flicked downshift and you’ll be convinced. And then some.
He’s already told you the engine’s epic (it is), the chassis incredible (again, yes), and the PDK is sensational (he’s absolutely right). But then I know Ollie, and if he chose the manual, he’d be absolutely right, however wrong it might be.
