    Actually it's about 4-5 degrees colder on average through the winter and 4-5 degrees warmer in the summer in Toronto vs Zurich and -5/6 colder and 6/7 warmer than Geneva. The shoulder seasons of April & October /November are identical. Geneva and especially Zurich get significantly more precipitation throughout the year.

    We don't make igloos in Toronto, it's the same latitude as Nice.

    Most people don't have winter beaters, there are years I actually didn't bother putting on my snow tires.

    Toronto is one of the most expensive real estate markets in the world, not London expensive but not cheap. Old, low clear height, small bay industrial buildings transact at about $2,000 per square meter. And parking spaces under my office building go for $700/month.

    We don't make igloos in Toronto, it's the same latitude as Nice?

    You must be kidding, right? Toronto is one of the colder winters in the western world (comparing major cities). Winter of 2003 we were inside for 3 months straight (every day from -14 to -25) and negative temps every year until end of March,  in 2018 there was an ice storm in mid April.

    Real estate used to be cheap but they pumped the values through tricks. Anyway, if you need to store a car it is not difficult in Toronto, there are many commercial units that you can use (just outside of the 416 area).

    and probably you never visited Nice...

    That's why you are not Canadian. 

    In those temperatures, people in Edmonton etc are just in t-shirts. Smiley

    Re: 992 GT3

    All those facts I listed are real. Toronto is at the same latitude as Nice. I've been to Nice, I never said that they had the same climate just that they were at the same latitude.

    Look I hate winter too and I love to complain about it but objectively those are the average temps. Yes we had a bad  ice storm one year. Look at Texas this year! Fact of the matter is that Toronto averages -4.5c in January and February, 0c in December and March, +5-6c in November and April. AVERAGES. Yes it gets to -25 a couple of days a year we've also had multiple days to +10c in mid-winter.

    And I do store a car outside of the 416 (416 area code or the center core region of Toronto to Europeans). With normal traffic it takes me almost 30 minutes to go from my house in central Toronto to get it. 15km, 30 minutes. In traffic that's sometimes an hour.

    Getting back to the original argument, it's just a car and I'll park it on the street while I drive it, probably between late March to mid December.

    Those warm temps always cause the hot Canadians to also have a place ‘up north’ for fun. 
    Toronto - a city where you can find a major traffic jam at 4am, on a highway outside of town.

    What details? No rear wing, everything else should be similar to GT3, including power.

    Re: 992 GT3

    I mean is it being offered with PDK as well this time? or was that always the case, I thought the touring was only a manual.... also any chance we get a surprise rear seats option or is that for sure a no?

    PDK is already confirmed and back seats are heavily implied to be available (and I bet there is a good amount of overlap in those Venn diagrams Smiley)
