    I spent an hour with a GT3 today

    I spent an hour with a GT3 today in Germany. No driving, just sitting in the car. It was black/black with adaptive sports seats, PCM and some extra leather, etc. The interior is so much better than any other Porsche incuding the CGT and Turbo. The pictures of the interior do not capture its perfection. The alcantara insets in the seats look and feel absolutely amazing.

    The clutch is firm and sports car perfect. The feel of the seats and steering wheel in alcantara is also just right And the gear shift is just how God intended things to be.

    There was a new Gallardo right next to the GT3, and beautifulö though the it is, the GT3 interior is so much better. I spent most of an hour just enjoying sitting in the car. The Gallardo held my attention for about two minutes.

    This is the Porsche that enthusiasts have been waiting for. After the mixed reception of the Turbo the GT3 looks certain to put Porsche back at the cutting edge of design. performance and practicality.

    Get on a waiting list!

    The GT3 interior is so much better than in case of the CGT?

    Good joke The CGT is in a class of its own. Just look at all the carbon. Beautifully crafted... The GT3 interior is an improved 997 interior (with some nice alcantara)

    Re: I spent an hour with a GT3 today

    sorry, but the CGT gear position, 996TT stearing wheel, etc... they just look UGLY...

    It is still leagues ahead of the standard 997/TT/GT3

    Re: I spent an hour with a GT3 today

    i agree they did chince out on the steering wheel, but the gear position is perfect

    Re: I spent an hour with a GT3 today

    imo steering wheel can define a car. Never felt a CGT steering wheel, so I couldn't comment...

    Re: I spent an hour with a GT3 today

    NO PICS?????

    I did take some pics that I can post when I get home in a few days. But you have to sit in the car to appreciate the interior. Pics do not capture the wonderful grippy feeling of the alcantara.

    "....wonderful grippy feeling of the alcantara..."

    I love my alcantara on my boxster!
