Steve Sutcliffe reviews the latest Porsche 911 GT3 and he reckons it could be the world's best sports car.
The reviews on the new-generation Porsche 911 GT3 keep dropping in with the latest video coming from UK magazine Autocar's road tester, Steve Sutcliffe, who sat behind the wheel of the most focused 991 to date during the car's European media presentation.To say that he was impressed, is an understatement, with Sutcliffe stating that it's extremely fast yet "so stable", going as far as saying that it's "the bargain of the century" at £100,000 (equal, but not comparable, to about US$152,000) and the "best car Porsche has ever made".
Since we gather some of you will be asking, the Nissan GT-R starts at £76,610 (US$117,000) in Britain.
Before we let you watch the video (that is, if you haven't done so already), we'll remind youthat the new 911 GT3 comes with a 3.8-liter naturally aspirated boxer engine rated for 469HP (475PS) with a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission transferring power to the rear axle, for a 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph)
