A tale of two Porsches
AFTER THE EARLIER TEASER SHOTS IN EVO OF the Porsche 911 Carrera T, I was really hoping the model could deliver on its promise of being a modern-day Club Sport. But after reading Adam Towler’s verdict from your first drive of the car ( evo 245) I felt as disappointed as he was at the missed opportunity it appears to be.
Then I read the next page: Adam’s drive of the 911 GT3 Touring Package. What a fantastic car! I want one so badly. The ‘regular’ GT3, in all its winged/caged/ stripped-out glory, is one of the best looking and best driving point-to-point cars known to petrolheads. The fact that Porsche now makes a version with all that same power and handling ability but with looks more subtle than the Carrera T is a wonderful thing – not everyone wants road-going race car levels of attention.
This car is a selfish buy. Only true car enthusiasts will know what it’s all about, and that’s where its magic lies.
