    I'm not too surprised a carbon tubbed supercar handles better, it damn well should!

    McLaren has retained hydraulic steering and I think this makes a huge difference in feel.

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Must admit the amazing steering feel was the one thing that leapt out at me when I tried the 570S - even having just got out of a GT3.

    MKSGR:

    Interesting comparison test in most recent SportAuto. They basically compared the handling qualities of cars like the GT3, AMG GTR, McLaren 720s, Corvette and Performante.

    The 720s was on regular PZeros, all other cars on Cup or even Trofeo or Cup ZP2...

    They praised the 720s and the Performante but criticize the GT3 for lack of precision. Interesting that they are disappointed by the handling qualities of a GT Porsche.

    Hey, you forgot the R8... Smiley Smiley

    More interesting is the end result (track time) for all cars in comparison. Truth to be told, barely a difference (L'Anneau du Rhin if I'm not mistaken, fastest car was only around 2 seconds faster than the slowest one?). OK, the track isn't that long but still...

    They loved the Performante...true.

    The list needs an update... The cars were tested on very different tires (see my additions above)

    If you include the tire information the 720s is the outperformed by far Smiley Would be interesting to have the corresponding lap times of a 720s with the Corsa and Trofeo as well, just to compare.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    The new PZero used on the 720S shouldn't be too shabby but you are right of course, it is difficult to compare times if one car (720S) is on street tires.

    Still, on such a short track, it is surprising how close the times are.

    Also, we always tend to forget that drivers always have a certain preference. Why I love my R8 (I am used to AWD cars and always prefer them to RWD cars), some pro drivers prefer (or are used) to RWD cars and this shows of course in the test results and the comments they make about that particular car. The nervousness of the R8 chassis at the limit can be avoided if you "pre-empt" this behavior and count the AWD and the traction advantages in. Also, the front tires really need more tire pressure than the rear ones but many test driving car journalists use equal tire pressures (front/rear) because they think the car has less understeer. If you do it right, you don't even get understeer but driving an AWD car is not the same as driving a RWD car and they know it. With the proper tires and a slightly stiffer chassis setup, the R8 would blow the competition away but on the other hand, it is probably the most comfortable daily driver sportscar I ever encountered and this includes even the 991.2 Turbo S. There always needs to be a compromise.

    The Performante has 80(!) hp less than the 720S, so I think there is no doubt how good this car is.

    It is probably a matter of preference but I think that the article made it pretty clear that for the track, the Performante is just fantastic to drive. The 720S has other qualities, even if it is fast as hell on the track as well.

    Between 200 and 300kph the 720s gains around 6-7s on the Performante (based on the ABSC test results of the latter) Smiley That is a lot indeed...

    Basically any McLaren is a beast in the 200 to 300 kph speed range. I always wonder how they do that (I have my suspicions but I want to be fair...so I won't do speculations). It would be interesting to measure the CO2/NOx output in this speed range at full throttle though. Smiley
