Has the manual 991.2 GT3 knocked the halo Porsche 911 R off its perch? Find out with my road test of both!

      it's funny all the enthusiasts love manual on open roads but will they drive it everyday in heavy traffic? i dont think so.

      Roger Lee Yes, they probably will. I have a manual GTS and it’s always a pleasure to drive, whether on the open road or in heavy traffic. Had a PDK before and it bored me to tears.

      Great video! But I can't help but think (after watching numerous reviews from owners and reviewers) that the people that drive these cars, Porsches in particular, are cream puffs. Sorry... couldn't hold onto that any longer. Carry on.

      Whats the difference between a Mezger engine and a DFI? What makes the former so special and why did they ditch it?

      Got to love a 911, no matter which one you choose

      I have a 2007 Cayman S with manual and love it

      I would choose the GT3 for myself if I had the money! 😂

      Hate the way speculators pushed the R up in value, no way is it worth a GT3 plus a 911 turbo and a GT4 in value 😳

      Neither. The last real Porsche 911 was built in 2011, aka the 997.2 GT3 4.0. 991's are bloated, numb, and disconnected.

      Fascinating opinion! Agreed the 997.2 is something of a sweet spot in the 911's lineage but then others will say it stopped at the air-cooled cars, others will say it stopped at the long bonnets… however I disagree to the idea that a car like the R is numb and disconnected. Cheers for sharing your thoughts!

      Great job Lee, really enjoy seeing this comparison and looking forward to part 2 with the GT3 Touring pack. Interesting to hear the difference in engine sound and overall road noise coming through in the 911 R. Does the 911 R engine feel grittier. Maybe a little buzz compared to the GT3 or vice versa. The GT3 engine just sounds more refined. Love both cars and to own either one would be a dream come true. keep up the great work!!
