    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    TB993tt:

    Disregarding the safety issues, I can't believe how easy that thing is to power slide, there is virtually zero pendulum effect, the rear doesn't kick back like on older 911s a super easy and fun car to slide around......

    Do 991 GT3s really have this little rear end grip or is the torque delivery so sharp that it can unstick the rear so easily ?

    This vid reinforces why I don't like PDK, this engine blipping and changing whenever it feels like it with the driver doing a token change up when he is not twirling the wheel - he probably feels the need for hanging the tail out as there is so little else to do to drive that thing  !

    I guess the lack of grip is mostly down to the tires and maybe greasy dry asphalt you tend to have in hotter climates?

    A few pics from Spa on Weds/Thurs... We were really lucky and it was dry for nearly the whole of both days.  GT3 was very impressive there.. It was a British-organised event (mostly went along to meet up with an old friend) with lots of things like Subarus and Mitsubishi Evos - tuned, stripped out, and track-focussed.  That Porsche can engineer something so every-day usable which can then be driven 1300km there and back in relative comfort, then blows away most of these focussed track cars on the circuit amazes me! blush

    That first photo is superb. It looks like your car is made for that curve and the hill that follows 🤘

    Looking forward to Imola in two weeks 👍

    Volvo never was, never will be a cool car brand. Period. Same goes to Saab.

    I remember who drove a Volvo in our neighborhood in the past and the German word "bieder" comes to my mind. This is usually the description for boring people who think they are adventurous in certain ways, for example if they are vegan.  The typical Volvo in Germany had a "Atomkraft - Nein Danke" (nuclear power, no thanks) sticker in the back and the owner/driver was usually an intellectual, mostly academic but a total nerd. Usually a bit on the left political spectrum. Yes, a lot of prejudice, I know but I always hated Volvo as a brand and the photos here in this thread make me sick. angry

    Back in the 80s, I spent over six weeks with a few friends working at the San Diego Navy hospital (we were doing some sort of internship during our medicine studies). Our rental car was a Ford Taurus first, which was a pretty cool car for us because it was different than the usual European cars. The Taurus broke down and the lady at Hertz rental wanted to do us a favor and upgraded us to a...Volvo station wagon. mail We drove the car for two days and returned it to Hertz because we couldn't bare driving in this car. It was quite OK, had a 6-cyl. engine and it was the latest model but we hated it.

    Sorry, I cannot see anything cool or nice in a Volvo but...to use bluelines' words again...maybe I have a Volvo trauma.  indecision

    Btw: I do not really hate Volvo. I hate the Smart and the Prius. These two cars(?) are the worst. Smiley

    Such a long post about something which you "don't really care about" can only mean one thing. Severe psychological trauma of an almost Freudian nature cheeky

    Dr Bluelines prescribes, for the next 10 days, a Volvo 240 rental car, only listen to ABBA songs and drink a "Festis" every morning.
