Porsche GT2-RS

I’ll be completly honest, the GT2-RS is a car I never really cared for. There’s just TOO many 911 variants, and this one is right around the middle of my personal ranking of them, the GT3 and GT3-RS are my top two (in no particular order), call me a purist I guess.

That being said, I can appreciate a well made car, being flogged around a well-made track in a very well-made video (even if said video is essentially a glorified commercial…). And an authentic Scottish accent doesn’t hurt. If you like cars, and/or Scottish accents, check the vid out! I’d still choose an R8 over the GT2-RS, performance differences be damned, but that’s not the point of this post, now is it?

A Porsche GT3….and Some Dirt.

Man, something about seeing a Gt3 so out of it’s element is just so…….right! And I have to say that Jeff Zwart is a great driver!

Random Cool Car: Porsche Carrera GT

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. In fact, this is something I haven’t seen EVER! I popped my Carrera GT cherry today at Best Buy Aiea. It’s a lot bigger than I thought it was. But it’s even more sexy in person as well. This is, IMO, the greatest German hyper-car (Audi R8 5.2 non-withstanding).

What got me wondering is: what kinda guy parks a 450K hyper-car in the first stall on a busy day? I swear, I saw a Chevy Tahoe parking next to it, and I had to hold my breath. Still, I give him (the owner) credit for actually USING it as a car, rather than having it locked up and under cover.

The 911, the quintessential sports car. Hate it or love it it’s an icon.

Shout outs to friend of the blog Walter for the shot! Nice job buddy!

Porsche 918 Spyder

I don’t normally comment on concepts. Or hybrids. Porsche has changed that.
