A tale of two Porsches

Evo - - INBOX -

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.

The ul­ti­mate Q-car? Could be. Rob Wil­liams
