The ultimate super car IMO. It has always been my favorite aside from the F-40. I love everything about it would buy one in a heartbeat if I had the cheddar. No question.

Was hoping they would release a stick option, but I guess if you want stick shift you will have to buy the older model. On side note I wonder if the price jumped up on the older model because the new GT2RS only comes in pdk.

Is this the first production 2wd car that can do 0-60 in under 2.9 on street tires?

-not sure. I know that the GT2 RS is definitely quicker from 0-60 than the Ferrari 488. Drivers of this Porsche will beat those mainlander's Ferrari's in a drag or circuit race.

Nice comparo vid to the new GT3 @2:05. GT2 RS is going to be dominating all lap times, but man is the new GT3 a beast.
