    Autocar GT2RS vs. Carrera

    They try to figure out if the GT2RS is worth the premium over the Carrera. The opening drift in the first 5 seconds settles it for me:

    No Doubt the gt2rs is a spectacular performance automobile, however I still like the look of the old 993 twin turbo!!! Call me ol' fashion...

    A 997.2 GT3 does it just as well Click here to enlarge . A base 997.2 GT3 RS with PCCBs or a 997.2 GT3 with dynamic engine mounts and carbon seats (standard on the RS) and PCCBs Vs the GT2 RS would have been a much better comparison. Obviously the GT2 RS would still be faster; I just see the top 911 Vs a base 911 comparison kinda stupid, no? Kinda like comparing an E9x M3 Vs an E9x 328, WTF....

    Well the base Carrera is more sports car than the 328 ever would be so I can kind of see the comparison.

    They are trying to see if one needs to spend the premium, and well, in my mind, yes.
