New GT3

If you have not already done so, check out the new GT3 at the Porsche website. It looks like Porsche still knows how to make sports cars, like those wheels....

How is that a car's shape, that hasn't changed in 35 years, can still give me a chubby? Love that color!!
Sadly on the outside looking in.

How is a good looking woman's shape, which hasn't changed in thousands of years, can still give me a chubby?

Some shapes are simply timeless for their beauty and ability to arouse a man.

If they only made a drop-top version! Guess I'll have to stick with the Turbo.

I just noticed something

I always thought the location of the Boxster exhaust tips was pretty cool, like the Murcielago. Until I just saw the pics below, I always assumed that the exhaust tips on a GT3 was in the same location as the other 911s out there like the C4S and Turbo. Who would of known.

It looks way nicer with this set up if you ask me. Absolutely stunning to look at, will look great next to that Murcielago I don't have in my garage yet. You know what they say, if you shoot for the stars...you might crap in your pants when you realized you just passed the moon.

Cheerios, have a good weekend everyone.

I'm looking forward to driving one on the track...we'll see how it compares with the GT3RS's I've had the pleasure to wheel around. I can't afford one at this point (two college age children), but maybe one day. Good thing I have friends that can write the checks. BTW, another friend of mine recently took delivery of a Murcielago Spyder; he won't track it (already has a GT3) but we'll have some fun cruising in it, at least.
