    I see one of my neighbors drive in a GT Silver one , but did not have the occasion to talk to him , which is usually quite difficult , as he is either in his car, garage, or house .

    These numbers do not look good for a $200,000 car. Its slower than other Porsche models which are $50,000 less. Goes to show you what marketing can do. One cannot account for blind gullibility.cheeky

    In my opinion, if you're the person to judge a 911R on numbers, you're not the person for whom a 911R is intended.

    I agree too. The R is obviously not a bad car, but... it has been cleverly driven by marketing and a "limited" plaque to become more than it's parts.

    Andy never intended the R to be a suer fast car, if he did, it wouldn't have a manual gearbox. It has a 'brisk' pace, as in fast enough for him, will not be fastest anywhere but that's not his intention.
