I loved the 991.1 GT3 a mate loaned me for a few weeks but personally would not want to daily drive it, just too hardcore for daily use for me. Possible I am getting old though I believe Faz said the same about his.

Zero doubt about how great they are though, and safe place for your money too - GT3 will cost you less to own than an M3 CS IMO...

I’m not so sure the GT3 GT3Rs, GT3 touring GT2 GT2rs hasn.t been so done to death that the bubbles gonna burst. They are epic cars but currently so many for sale at inflated prices. They have at least one of each in Lancaster Colchester and only one Carrera S

Im coming round to the idea lately, that less is more. We all strive for the latest and greatest toys, when there are cars right under our noses that hit the bullseye, which we overlook

We should swap cars periodically in future rather than flip between these brands
