911 R v GT3 Tour­ing

dear Sir, Great to see this men­tioned in your re­cent ed­i­to­rial page be­cause there is much talk about these two cars and how they com­pare on­line. On pa­per it seems the R’s unique spec­i­fi­ca­tion of light­weight body (with mag­ne­sium roof) plus sin­gle-mass fly­wheel means it’ll re­main su­pe­rior to the GT3 Tour­ing, but come on: if the GT3 Tour­ing is only 10 per cent in­fe­rior to an R yet costs less than half as much, surely it’s the car to have? david nor­ris this looks set to be a de­bate that’ll rage on for some time. In terms of value it’s hard to com­pare the two: the r is a num­bered pro­duc­tion car and a one-off spe­cial, the tour­ing isn’t. In terms of how they drive, the r is su­pe­rior, but only just. re­ally, both sets of own­ers should be grate­ful. the r re­tains its place at the top of the tree, while the tour­ing of­fers a sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ence for a more friendly price point. no­body loses here!
