2007 Porsche 911 GT3 GT3 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I recently traded my '06 Z06 for an '07 GT3. Best decision I have ever made. The Z06 is extremely fast, has awesome brakes and is one of my favorite cars that I have owned. Why trade in a car that I was perfectly happy with? While the Z06 is like being strapped into a massive rocket, the GT3 is like every limb having its' own individual rocket. The connectivity to the GT3 is unbelievable. The response to every input is precise and right now. The "bang for your buck" argument of the Z06 is a lost one if you can afford a GT3. It is WAY more fun to drive and has a TON more character and refinement - crisp feel of the shifter, the rapid revs, and the absence of the "bath tub" feel set it apart


Best Features

Awesome power. Great soundtrack. Precise handling and braking. Ritz Carlton parking spot. Common sense delete.


Worst Features

i-pod integration storage compartments in the seatless area behind front seats

Review

GT3 is a one of the all time great rides. Drove 16 hrs down the east coast as snow was soon arriving, got 26 mpg, no tickets, it's 70 degrees. GT3 is built like a vault. Everything works flawlessly. Exhaust note is exceptional when you want it, and quiet when you don't. The least conspicuous supercar made but still gets tons of looks and comments, along with cell phone picture taking. The ceramic brakes are remarkable often the standard in braking comparisons. 3000 perfect miles since August.


Best Features

Handling, engine, acceleration, efficiency, brakes, tires, driving position, interior, ergonomics, exclusivity, performance for the dollar. Stereo, rain sensitive wipers, dimming mirrors, midnight blue paint, michelins, suspension, steering, taco spoiler.


Worst Features

Install larger gas tank, option of tires with more tread, not just CUP tires. Need 6 disc or up to date technology stereo with hard drive! Dedicated navigation system, not controller for stereo, climate system. Brake calipers in different colors. Delete sunroof option. Spare tire, jack?

Review

The Car is simply exhilarating but extraordinarily straightforward to drive. However it is not for the faint hearted or uncommitted driver. It demands concentration every moment at the wheel. It is the first car that I have driven that ensures that I am not interested in a radio, the CD player or the scenery beyond the road ahead. The car obeys every input, is totally surefooted and yet blows your mind every time you hit the accelerator. On top of this the car is a great investment and has a fantastic build quality. I hate cars that shake or squeak at every twist, turn or bump in the road. This my second porsche and I doubt that I will ever be happy with any other alternative in the future.


Best Features

The acceleration, grip, control and the feeling of sitting in the carbon fibre seats. It's awe inspiring.


Worst Features

Reduced cost of tyres! There is no option outside of OPC provided tyre choice.

Review

After 9 months and 3400 miles, I've come to feel that my GT3 is so capable that driving it on the street is an exercise in fustration. You can't use even 50% of the car's performance without risking a ticket or endangering other motorists. So mine sits in the garage most of the time. On racetracks, it's a totally different story. The car is very easy to drive to the limit and will do lap after lap at the max with no sign of strain whatever. It is really a piece of work!


Best Features

Sport button, engine, transmission, styling.


Worst Features

Take the engine out to 3.8 liters! Make the sunroof a delete option.

Review

This is a stupendous car! I've been a Porsche aficionado for 25 years. This is my 5th Porsche, and I never imagined it could be this good. It goes, stops and (mostly) handles at a level that is beyond my experience. It is very user-friendly, and a complete pussycat to learn, unlike the hair-shirt 996 GT3s. It is a fundamentally understeering car, which is the key to its benign nature. Alas, the understeer is too much of a good thing. It needs more adjustability so the push can be overcome by knowledgable owners. That said, it was sooo satisfying to put away a Viper, a Corvette Z06, all BMWs, all other Porsches and most everything else I encountered at Watkins Glen last weekend!


Best Features

Power is just phenomenal! Brakes are excellent.


Worst Features

Please, leave room to dial out the understeer with sway bar adjustment (rear, as delivered, comes set to full hard, front set to one notch below full soft, and it STILL pushes WAAY too much)! And PLEASE, put seats in the car that will accommodate 6-point harnesses!
