    Latest Excellence magazine article on Carrera GT, GT2 & GT3

    Very interesting article comparing the 3 cars at the same time in every day driving experiences.
    Bottom line - they thought the Carrera GT was outstanding and very liveable on a daily basis and concluded that once you practise the clutch a few imes it's not a problem at all in daily driving.....they also said the sound of the car is almost worth the price of admission......

    Thanks to you, 964C2, I've been on the lookout for it, and yesterday, I picked it up. Just looking at the angle of the cover shot makes me drool. The article is excellent (no pun intended) but left me wishing for a little bit more to savor. Then, I read the counterpoint. Ah! A fit desert. I am happy to learn the CGT and 996 GT3 each have certain qualities the other will never possess.

    yes, i think the article made the point pretty well - those of us who only drove the car for a few hours in a single day were left with an incorrect opinion about the clutch. since journalists didn't have the car for the couple days necessary to really get comfy with the clutch, the clutch bashing makes perfect sense.

    they did make one saliant point and that is that the ride height makes simple tasks like getting gas a real PIA and porsche could have remedied with a cheap electronic front end fix. we're still waiting for the +1/2" ride height kit hopefully porsche was not BS'g us about to sell cars.
