    test drove a TT tiptro

    So I test drove one. It's a great car.
    I do not think anything can bring you from A to B faster (on the road that is) with so much ease...
    So it's all a matter of philosophy and why you buy a sports car...
    3 things:
    - The noise does not compete with any sports car, but with a tuned DYSON :-)
    - There IS lag..
    - The tiptro might be clever than your usual auto tranny, but it makes the whole experience so boring...
    And then 1 thing:
    - Accelerations are out of this world...

    So, for me it's clear...on the Porsche world evolution path, I am on the boxster->carrera->gt3 track and not the boxster->carrera->TT track...

    Enjoy !

    Porsche made the GT3 available for one reason, for people who think like you
    Above the Carrera Porsche splits it's high end cars into 2 paths, on one side it's the Turbo/Turbo S and on the other side it's GT3/GT2, which ever path one follows depends on whatever one's wishes in a car.

    Re: test drove a TT tiptro

    I bet it was silver with the center console and the back of the seats silver too
    I had the same impressions as you... I would have it as a confortable daily car to do lots of travelling with, otherwise I tend also much more towards the GT3..

    Re: test drove a TT tiptro

    yup, exactly THAT car :-)
    Too bad I missed the GT3 test drive...you were really lucky to take it to Marchairuz!!! ;-)

    Re: test drove a TT tiptro

    GT3 is a nice track dream, the Turbo a nice everyday driving, even if I find it a little bit stressful. I know that sounds like blasfemy but i'm not complaining about it.
    The joy of driving that car is so huge that you easily forget anything else

    By the way...i never had the possibility to test drive a GT3. Now i'm in switzeralnd. Does anyone knows where can i test drive one?

    The 997 GT3 is as good as a daily driver as the -20 mm, if one is willing to cope with the ' look' ( back wing, low front spoiler, no back seats).

    You need to check with your local dealer. Their was a GT3 that went around all garages, you had to book in advance to be sure to get a chance to drive it and you better ' know' the dealer, or convince him you could be a client
