    She is home

    The 4.0 is finally home Smiley

    The car is significantly different in than the GT2RS. You can feel it instantly. The sounds are really something else!

    I don't know if they removed even more of the sound insulating material, but the car inside is quite a bit noisier.

    The power is also something to behold, it's not as mad as the 2RS, but it certainly doesn't feel too far behind. It's very raw to say the least, the 2RS feels more refined.

    Will post some further impressions and images when I get home. Smiley

     


    Re: She is home

    Congratulations. Can't wait to see some pictures and hear what it's like to drive.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: She is home

    Hey Mike,

    great to read that you are still with us. We were already missing you around here... wink

    Congratulations on the car, as I know some people that prefer the GT3 over the GT2 variants I would be curious to hear your opinion after a while.


    Re: She is home

    congrats....pics pls....

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: She is home

    Congrats Mike! having both the GT2RS and the 4.0 gives you a great perspective on the unique apects of the 4.0. Looking foward to some more impressions and pics!

    Re: She is home

    Fantastic car !!! I would also be very interested in yr comparison to the GT2RS - however, I am totally blown away by the natuarally aspirated 3.8 - and I am sure the 4.0 is even better......don't forget to push the sport button all the time - the sound is just intoxicating ! (ahhh btw : new garage pics ? smiley)

    Re: She is home

    wow...
    That's amazing Mike!

    I'm going to be a greedy b@stard and ask you for another thing: when you're doing the comparison og the 3rs vs 2rs, could you please PLEASE also post some pics of the two brethren together? (maybe even with the CGT?)

    Come to think about it, you remind me of this movie, one of my all time favorites:

    @Joost/Bjoern: A "RS" photo is do-able, just need the weather to clear up. The other one will only happen at some stage next year. They're not all together at this stage.

    Thanks for the video Joost, I am honored Smiley

    Congratulations, Mike ! You own my dream car. laugh I wish I would have gone for it but on the other hand, my wife would have killed me for it by now. Not sure what is better... 

    Amazing Porsche, enjoy and drive safely. wink
