    WGA got a reaction from Chris-p in 991 GT3 Market watch   
    Thanks for the comments but I actually get more enjoyment from my cars by letting other people drive them. Last year some friends came over from OZ to join me on a road trip across Europe to Tuscany and back. When they arrived at my place I said "pick a car and lets go".
    Well much debate ensued, the 964 and the 996 were immediately eliminated as too old and uncomfortable to undertake a 4,500kms round trip. No one wanted the 997 or the Touring. My nephew chose the GTR while I chose the GT3. Meanwhile my wife and sister-in-law were huddling, then turned and announced that they would do a "Thelma and Louse" and would take the 991.1 GTS cab and make their own way to Tuscany at their pace. So while us "boys" were racing down the Autobahn at 290kph and tearing up mountain passes, the girls cruised along, stopping at day spas along the way enjoying the drive at their own pace. It was one of the best holidays ever sharing cars with friends and family.

    Before I got my GT3 RS, I had a GTR for over 12months alongside my 991.2 GT3 and my 991.2 GT3 Touring. I took all three cars out to Spa for a track day and invited a bunch of friends and family along. It was my first time in the GTR on track at Spa and within 6-8 laps I put down a 2:45sec lap which was equal to my best time in the GT3 at the time. Each person who drove it that day preferred it over the GT3 or the Touring saying it was easier to drive "quickly" compared the GT3...and it sounded better.
    But here's the rub, after 8 laps in the GTR, no brakes whereas the GT3 (and the Touring) just circulated all day. And when it got wet, well, the GTR was all but undrivable due to the torque delivery. It just wanted to kill you! But still, its a car that delivers huge fun in the right conditions.

    Well, while we are in lockdown....and I have nothing better to do except stare at my cars out the window....and if you are interested....I thought I would share another GT3 travel story.
    The year before I got the GTR, I had an M2, a 991.1 GT3 3.8 and a 991.2 GT3 4.0. I meant to sell the 991.1 GT3 when the 991.2 arrived but didn't get around to it for 6+months so I had the two cars sitting around for awhile. The same crew came across from OZ and we set off on a two week Swiss/Italy road trip heading for the mountain passes (Furka, Susten, Grimsel, San Bernardino, etc, etc).
    This is a video of our drive down the San Bernardino Pass. I lead off in the 991.2 GT3 4.0 while the other two follow in the M2 and 991.2 GT3 3.8. The video is shot from the 991.1 GT3. If you like the sound of a GT3, do yourselves a favour, put the headsets on and turn up the volume. The 991.1 GT3 sounds awesome.
    If you are considering buying a 991 GT3, a 3.8 or 4.0, I would thoroughly recommend them. They are about the best fun you can have sitting down.
    The second video is a short drive up part of the Furka pass in the 991.2 GT3 4.0.
    It was another fantastic holidays sharing cars with family and friends. We were all a bit naughty but that's half the fun.

    Well much debate ensued, the 964 and the 996 were immediately eliminated as too old and uncomfortable to undertake a 4,500kms round trip. No one wanted the 997 or the Touring. My nephew chose the GTR while I chose the GT3. Meanwhile my wife and sister-in-law were huddling, then turned and announced that they would do a "Thelma and Louse" and would take the 991.1 GTS cab and make their own way to Tuscany at their pace.
