Damn, where still in doubt

My wife and I visited the biggest Porsche importer in the Netherlands, and we've been in the Turbo and the GT3... but damn they are some great cars !

on about 2 weeks whe can get a test-drive in an Turbo and a GT3..
I've allready have driven an Turbo, and it's just amazing ! and fast as hell !

We still haven't drove an Ferrari 360 Spider, but since we went to the Porsche dealer were are still deep in doubt... cause we don't wonna have regrets on buying a car...

I know that the most of you are choosing an Porsche over a Ferrari, (results from the poll), and I said then that my opinion goes to Ferrari... but I think the Turbo drives far more better than the Ferrari...

but some said that there where power-packages on the Porsche's ??
can someone give some more info about that ?

Not much faster at all. And it's a lot heavier with softer suspension tuning, it's a status car compared to the hardcore GT3.

To me, Turbo buyers are cross-shopping with DB's and SL55's. GT3 buyers like 360 Challenges and Elise's.

See, and that's against the X50 package. Anyone who can feel a .17 1/4 mile difference is a liar.

Not to mention a magazine just got a 12.07 out of the GT3 a little while back.

GT3=NA, NA sounds better

It's a totally different machine. Plus, it's RWD.

There are no power upgrade packages for the GT3. Not that you really need or want them.

gt3 is more a track car like the csl...i mean the straight line performance of a csl is not massive over a normal m3 but then look at the times on the track . On the other hand, buying a hardcore gt3 which is obviously designed for the track may not be the best choice if you're driving it day to day.

You're right! It's toooooo expensive. Other than that factor I'm sure you'd get it in a heartbeat.
