    Re: Photoshoot: Yellow 997 GT2

    Today I'm doing a photo shoot of a Scuderia, 997 GT2 and my 997 TT, red, yellow and blue! I'll try to post those pictures here. And I'll check that thread out, thanks for your help, Eunice! Glad you made it on here!

    Hey Jason - SO happy to see you back here!! 

    As others have said, you have indeed been missed.

    If you are having problems with uploading pics on RT then you should put the pics on somewhere like Photobucket and then link to them from here.  Miles quicker, and no subsequent performance impact on RT.  Some day someone will listen to me...

    Hey Jason, good to see you on here again. I really like this pic Smiley 

     

    Aside from the GT2 script on the side of the yellow GT2, that looks perfect...

    Eunice, yes, I noticed that IE isn't very good at handling certain elements when it comes to resource hungry postings. Google Chrome or Firefox seems to do better but I don't like either one. I'm old school I guess. :D

    I'm not sure what body kit the RSR replica uses but it may be the one from Manthey. It's a replica, that's for certain. It used to be yellow but now it's white. Really does look awesome in person. Words usually fail me when trying to come up with a description for it when on the road!

    And yes, I did darken the edges a bit on purpose to add to the effect. I'm actually kind of experimenting with that effect a bit.

    And for the super wide angle shots, yes, I used a fisheye lens and adjusted the aperture so that the corners would be blurry like that. 16mm Nikkor fisheye with my D3.

            That is an extremely interesting pricture Smiley Did you also modify the colors?


    Re: Photoshoot: Yellow 997 GT2

    I tweaked the colors a bit...

    And then....for something special a few of us got together with a few basic supercars.

    To start things off...

    For this one I thought I'd try making these cars look like toys because they ARE toys.

    Re: Photoshoot: Yellow 997 GT2

    Ok, now I can give you guys my impressions. 

     I've had my 997TT for a little over 2 years now and in that time period I've made a number of changes as you guys know. Bilstein coilovers, H&R sways, GT3 alignment specs, cargraphic exhaust, etc. She's a very capable machine. A GT grand tourer so to speak. So, it was when I drove the GT2, the I'd forgotten how raw a real sports car could be. From the instant I stepped in the car, I knew that I was in for something special. The steering ratio is much shorter from lock to lock and the clutch effort is noticably heavier. Off the line, the power differences is immediately apparent and when I hit the gas, the car moves like a scalded cat. It's a bit quickier off the line than the Turbo but once she starts moving then you can definitely tell that the GT2 is a faster car. I'd almost say that the ride/handling is jittery compared to the composed Turbo. Kind of like riding in a flat-bottomed boat across a slightly rough lake. It's supremely composed in the corners but you definitely have to drive with care as I was reminded at some points that this car was RWD, much more power and not as confidence inspiring.

     And then when I settled in the Scuderia, I knew immediately from the surroundings that I was in for something special. The CF everywhere, metal flooring, and technical fabric throughout. From the time I pressed the "start" button, the engine roared to life with a deafening "growl" before settling into a nice rumbling idle. Off the line, the Scuderia isn't as explosive as the GT2 nor the Turbo but the velocity increases at a very rapid rate as you click off fast upshifts using the paddle shifters. This car is something special. The sound that it makes, the red shift lights coming on one by one as you soar past 6,000 rpms straining to keep your neck straightened. You can hear every pebble from underneath and the bare metal flooring translate an excellent road feel through your feet, your legs all the way up to your heart/head. The ride is not as harsh as the GT2 but not as supremely composed as the Turbo. You can tell that this is a serious driving machine meant for surgically precise driving through the twisties. This is a car that I can live with for the rest of my life. It's THAT much better than both the GT2 and the Turbo. I just cannot get over how viscereal the excuse was. I was grinning from ear to ear the whole time. And of course there's no denying the visual factor of this car which practically SCREAMS "Look out WORLD, I've arrived!"

    Both cares have very neutral handling balance but the Scuderia has a noticable advantage in that department because of the road feel. But the GT2 beats the Scuderia in the power department so it really depends on what your priorities are. For me, the choice is clear, I want a Scuderia and one day I shall own one. :D

    Re: Photoshoot: Yellow 997 GT2

    i am totally with you on the difference in feel between the turbo and gt2...that's just how i feel when i drive each of them. turbo is the touring car and gt2 is the attack car. far more nervous and  itchy.

    Thanks for your driving impressions Jason, very valuable and very instructive!   Smiley Smiley

    Is the black lid on the yellow GT2 's rear wing and OEM option or a tunning add-on?

    it's oem and apparently it's carbon fiber put painted black. that's what i've read somewhere. i checked on my car but could not tell for sure. only the black tip is supposed to be carbon.

    Re: Photoshoot: Yellow 997 GT2

    Ironically, the owner of the GT2 plans to change both the wing blade and the front vent blade to CF. I'll try to post pictures once he has done that.
