This is seriously the review that every car nut is waiting for. Absolutely amazing. Thanks to Chris Harris and the crew.

Even though I will never be able to afford any of them just from his review I can see why they want all 3.

No brainer the P1 is the fastest car once they slapped on the Trofeos tires.
Aero made the difference IMHO

P1 on Trofeo Rs = no contest, but interesting to see that it still beat out the bunch on Pirelli Corsas too.

And in Hyper 5, the P1 came in 3rd, around Thermal club. With the LaF and 918 being just 2 one hundredths of a second apart from each other.

I'd take all 3.

Still watching, but I can't say I'm surprised at which one was the fastest. I won't spoil it for those that haven't watched. But really it comes down to the purposes of each car. I compare the Porsche to a Quattro Audi, in the sense that a true 4 wheel drive system can really compensate for lack of traction or driver skill. So I'm pleased where it ended up.

In the end the winner of the lap time crown came down to weight and setup. When you compare the Gumpert Apollo (or some members cars on this very forum); you could tune the car to the track and adjust to improve your time. Adjusting your height, rebound, compression and maybe even your splitters and spoilers. The difference is that the winner in this trio does that with a touch of a button, and the other cars didn't offer that.

Wasn't 918 on Michelins PSC2? The Corsa's are a softer compound.

I just can't believe the times the Porsche is putting down. Significant weight and power disadvantage and clearly not built as a no-holds-barred track car, like the other two. That car is punching way above it's weight, and as we've seen from previous videos, it (and Porsche themselves) can do it without breaking a sweat or worrying about if the tires are perfect and new and equal. Goes to show what a proper performance-focused AWD system can do. Great video, epic cars, but I know which one I'd have.

I know it wasn't, but he went on about how it was all made equal but it wasn't for the Porsche.
