His videos as of late have been outstanding. Then again, they always have been.

In before someone brings in the Corvette into the conversation.

For the price, 0 chance I pick the AMG over the 991 GT3, which all of a sudden seems like a bargain at this price.

P.S. The howl that GT3 makes is crazy

My god, GT3…that noise! And just an incredibly awesome looking car inside and out.

You can just see it in the review the huge grin on Harris' face and the giddy little kid chuckling that the other two cars just don't seem to get out of him.

Can only imagine what the GT3 RS is going to be like considering the GT3 is an unstoppable force.

I think I'd still take that Aston over the GT3 though.... Those looks and sounds are other-worldly.

I'd have a blast with any of them, but if I had to pick one, it'd be the GT3 any day of the week.

Chris Harris and Cars is good.
Love the reviews, they're honest. He tells all the good things but also all the bad things about cars but he is realistic.

Yeah I'm thinking I made a mistake picking a 997.2 turbo S over the 991 GT3

I just spent nearly $10K on suspension...but it will never handle like a GT3. I'm also looking at exhausts...but no matter what it will never sound like a GT3. Dammit.

Emotionally GT3, practically if that is even applicable here the Aston suits me better.

The turbo is the ultimate DD…with hyper car type performance and handling and its comfortable to be in. For a stock car, you'd need a Veyron to have a faster car on the street, and they do make pretty damn good track cars but its certainly no GT3/2/RS.

I agree 100%. I would pick the GT3 over almost anything, not just other Porsches.

They're all great cars but not a single one of them is one of my favorites in terms of the intentions which it was built. There are a lot of other cars out there that achieve something more than just a "track" car and I feel these don't meet that special category.

Absolutely astounding cars none-the-less, just not the ones for me

Most of them consist of more primitive or innovative designs in directions that still challenge the driver with the road opposed to simplifying everything through a similar channel of innovation.

I guess something that would be a good example would be like the old TVR cars that aren't made anymore. Little to nothing slapped into them but everything was engineered around an engine and the feel of the road.

I could write for days about the various cars that exist out there that I think transcend the "pushing the barrier" mentality of simplicity for the track or generalizations for the driver, but I'd like to sit down and put a lot more effort into that.
