Love the Speedster and the video, needed to be longer. My perfect 911.
Seems like most enthusiasts were scoffing and turning their nose up at the Speedster, when Porsche first announced it.

If it's as close as the current gen 911 gets to being a road biased GT3 (a la 911R) then it's the most desirable 991 to my eyes.

Very pricey at £226k, for the heritage spec car Catchpole drove 😱

I can see some appeal, but hard-top manuel GT3 instead for me thanks.

I’m sure it’s mega capable, but it’s fugly and has awful graphics. GT3 RS or R for me.

Bit before my time. 205 T16 was ‘my’ Group B car.

Love the seats.
Fantastic 8-)

Bang in the middle of my time

Such a great car to drive

I would love a proper 400 given a lottery win and more garaging

Haven’t watched this yet, and I suspect it will be a Porky victory. I am hoping the Evora manages to kick it in the stones a couple of times however.

Good video if somewhat unavoidably predictable.

Didn’t know one can opt for Ohlins TTX for the Evora. They’re supposed to be one of the very best; £8k+ for the 996 GT3, compared to the still excellent Ohlins Road & Track £2.5-3k.

That video does make the Evora look very dated, especially interior wise....and I'd struggle to see anyone who wasn't a massive fan of the Lotus brand picking it over the 911.

£5k option for the Ohlins, according to Evo review.

I actually thought JWW's was a bit better than Harry's effort (and I say that as a big HC fan) and more detailed. There has been a disturbance in the force :?

:lol: Yes I meant Henry.

I believe Harry was there on the Saturday (he tweeted he saw both the Heidfeld and the ID R record breaking runs in person) so who knows - he could still come out with a vid on the 935. 🤞

I really like seeing Knockhill in those types of video.

I guess it’s a bit out of the way but it’d be good to see more.

Apparently roads are A827 at Loch Tay then head towards Glen Lyon.

In isolation it’s not too bad, but I wouldn’t have chosen it over Gentian Blue, Guards Red, Racing Yellow, White metallic or GT Silver.

I'm a bit conflicted about whether I want the GT4 or the Spyder more. Might have to have both!
