    People who complain about the GT3 being too hard, not comfy enough or/and too loud just picked the wrong car for the wrong usage.

    For budget buyers like me it's not a bad thing if some dentists or lawyers abusing the car as a corporate car find out that they would have been better off with picking  a Carrera 4 Smiley I didn't drive the 4.0 RS yet, but the 3.8  RS in standard trim (factory suspension set-up) is not uncomfortable at all when driving on normal country roads Smiley

    @ Racinger : did you bought the car for creating attention to the brand or is it being driven to show the brand - or is it bought for driving yes

    Just for driving and it's a real pleasure

    Chris Harris On Cars: "PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS 4.0 vs C63 BLACK vs M3 GTS"

     
    Dream group-test line-up, Chris Harris at the wheel and one epic video you NEED to see...

    (2 May 2012)
     
    After we shot this video, myself and videographer Neil Carey drove from Betws-y-Coed to the Severn Bridge straight through the centre of Wales. It was by some margin the most enjoyable UK drive of 2012 – possibly for several years. He was in the M3 GTS, I was in the C63 Black Series.
     
    Track is where these cars rule supreme...
     
    The road element of this video is secondary to the track work because cars look far more exciting when they can move around, but the more time I spend in this type of car, the more their road manners matter to me. I fully accept that many people will think this is madness but that drive through Wales in the C63 was mind-expanding. What a car. Moreover – what a road car. A machine which can lap with panache but you could happily use Monday-through-Friday. If you did without the silly spoiler.
     
    You can still enjoy driving in this country. Be patient, don’t take the proverbial and you find yourself covering ground at a decent speed and enjoying cars like these.
     
    ...but they're amazing on the road too
     
    The M3 GTS didn’t make any sense at £115,000 in 2010, and it still doesn’t now, but it’s juddering with enthusiasm and specialness. Strangely, it has a bright future in the UK because fewer than 10 came here, thereby ensuring instant classic status.
     
    You know my thoughts on the other car. The 4.0 RS is a great all-rounder; possessor of what I think is the finest production car engine and, including sat-nav, iPod connector and upgraded hi-fi, weighs far less than either of the others. Its only real weakness is being a little too stiff for lumpier UK roads. The M3 GTS is even worse in this respect, leaving the beautifully damped Mercedes feeling very civilised indeed. Hence the fact I didn’t swap with Neil on the way south. That and the shagged tyres.
     
    We were only shooting for a day-and-a-half, but those were some of the best on-location hours of my working life. These are my kind of cars: rigorously engineered for the business of going fast but entirely useable too. The weather at Anglesey Circuit was perfect, as were the snowy peaks of Snowdonia the following morning.
     
    Enjoy the vid. We enjoyed making it.

    ...many thanks and all due respect and credit to Chris Harris!

    I really don't understand how Porsche thinks such videos would help them marketing-wise but maybe they are looking at a different target audience...Boxster... Smiley

    Don't worry, without their names in the video, I wouldn't have recognized them either.

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    I took delivery of 214/600 this past weekend.  I was away, so it was left at my brother-in-law's who has a garage.  I finally drove it today as it rained earlier in the week.  I am in love, what a car, a true driver's car.  a lot has been said on this car and a s a former motorcycle guy, i don't have the context of comparison that so many of you have, but I was stunned at how compliant the car was and just how much fun it is.  I bought the car from the original owner, but it only has 261 miles on it, so i am still in the break in period - I can only imagine what awaits!

    Congratulations, the RS 4.0 is a keeper.

    I would have loved to own this car, I could have had one but I don't have the money (and garage space) for another garage queen/toy. Sooner or later, I will regret my decision, I'm pretty sure about it because the RS 4.0 could be the last of it's kind and a car which would have be welcomed into our "car family" for at least a decade or longer. Smiley

    Treat the car well...it deserves it. Smiley

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Congrats ... IMO the GT3 RS 4.0 will be an icon in years to come.

    Sometimes I wish I had got one. Maybe I should consider a used one? I'm sure they are hardly depreciating in the UK and demand is high.

    But this is a great toy ... right now my wife wants to replace our kitchen and all major appliances ... I guess my attention is there right now angry
