Tour guide

Wheels (Australia) - - Car Road -

The spec of our GT3 was al­most GT3 Rs-lite, with the Club­sport pack, look-at-me paint and har­nesses. If you pre­fer a lower key look, just tick the zero-cost Tour­ing Pack­age op­tion. This nets you a man­ual trans­mis­sion and a leather and cloth in­te­rior with­out the track-émi­gré Al­can­tara, and deletes the rear wing. It sounds like the 911R that Porsche of­fered in lim­ited num­bers and which now change hands for ridicu­lous money, but the R has the old en­gine capped to 8500rpm, and fea­tures mag­ne­sium body pan­els which make it 43kg lighter. The launch of the Tour­ing Pack­age must have given a few 911R spec­u­la­tors some se­ri­ously sweaty palms.
