Car Review - Porsche 911 GT3 3.8 (M)
09 Jun 2011  |  Porsche Reviews
Although Porsche has started retailing four-door models and SUVs, its banner bearer is still the 911, which was first launched in 1963. Proud Porsche-lover, Koji "Prince" Aoyama, takes Porsche 911 GT3 for a spin.

Review
Despite being smaller than your average high-end sportscar, the 911 is superbly packaged. It feels far more spacious than you'd give it credit for from the kerbside, and rides smoothly and noiselessly at ridiculous speeds. The standard Carerra is fairly rapid, the ‘S' just about spot on. The Turbo would be as close to insanity as a 911 could get if it weren't for the GT2. So take a Carrera S and a GT2, rub them together and you get a GT3; the perfect performance Porsche. Anyone seen driving a 911 is treated with utter contempt by all other road users. The 911 is a cool car. We all know that. But we also accept that if you drive one you will be regarded as a tosser. Although the interior touch points are not what they were on the air-cooled cars, the modern 911 is still beautifully built and able to rack up ridiculous mileage without showing a trace of wear and tear. After three decades of seemingly inexplicable end-swapping, the 911 is now an extremely compliant, planted and predictable creature. Combine this with truly sublime steering and you have one of the finest set-ups available. The 911 is an icon of impracticality; the car the divorcee buys when he no longer has the kids to worry about. There's a reasonable amount of load space if you include the useless rear seats, but it's all split up and fairly inaccessible. Except if you buy the Targa, but that's the only reason you should be looking at that version. Access to the rear seats - hardly a sexy way to introduce your new Porsche.
