Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsFeels strong. Launch technique: At 4,200 rpm -- clutch out FAST -- throttle out FAST. Quickest launch with wheel hop through 1st gear. The GT3 rewards deliberate/fast control movement. Normally abusive treatment doesn't feel so in the GT3.
Braking ratingExcellent
Braking commentsBrakes and tires require heat before optimum performance.Pedal -- dead consistent every run.Perfect balance of effort and effectiveness.Very intuitive at the limit.
Handling ratingExcellent
Handling commentsSlalom: Surgically precise steering and chassis response. Less intimidating than Turbo. Limits are easy to predict and approach. Skid pad: Not particularly responsive to lift throttle at low speed. Understeers earlier that I thought. Still massive grip.Best ever production car slalom speed and skid pad at Edmunds.
