A GOOD DAY OUT
These are some of the other Porsche models we drove on the day
1972 2.7 RS Touring
A bucket-list moment. Instantly recognisable via its ducktail rear spoiler, the 2.7 RS feels both wonderfully delicate in its workings, yet still deceptively fast thanks to its lightweight construction and 154 kw on tap.
1992 Carrera RS
Clearly built to favour track use, the 191 kw RS is tricky to drive in modern everyday conditions because of its heavy steering and snug racing seats. Wonderful straight-line acceleration, though.
2003 996 GT3 RS
Tested in the April 2004 issue of CAR, few cars feel as grumpy in traffic and then so willing and, indeed, grateful for being driven as hard as possible around a set of corners.
2018 GT2 RS Weissach Package
One word: brutal. Everything about the GT2 RS, from the way it looks to its performance, screams get out of my way. The only car without a manual transmission on the day.
