Default What real 0-60 uk=3.5 or us=3.3

Getting confused,
whats the real 0-60 on this car.

http://www.porsche.com/uk/models/911/911-gt3/
Says 3.5 for GT3, then 3.4 for a Turbo, and 3.2 for Turbo w/ Sport +

Then:
http://www.porsche.com/usa/models/911/911-gt3/
Says: 3.3s for GT3, then Turbo 3.2, and 3.0 w/ Sports chrono

Are US cars really quicker? maybe different emissions.. ?
--Hey.. looks like GT3 is about as fast as a Turbo 0-60..Thats cool. (not interested in going much faster in streets anyways... Ha Hoo).
anyone have both.. and can compare..

Maybe it's even faster, as I heard Porsche is conservative with these numbers.. Can someone please test when the DRIVE BAN is lifted. .I don't have a stop watch.. LOL..

Does this mean I can beat a 997 turbo, w/o Sports Chrono from a stop light.. --I'll look to see if it has the Wart first of course..

They would probably burn down to the ground at the same time if you started them...wait...nevermind.

Ahhhh.. wow. 2 mph makes .2 sec. Thx for info.. was driving me nuts. .3.3 sounds much better then 3.5 for some reason.. Pan Turbo s does in 3.6 w chrono Dang.... want to make sure I got him..(some neighbor.. ha ha) Would look stupid if I lost with that big wing on back and his ego would go thru the sunroof.. -- He's driving around like he owns the neighborhood.. Need to get this thing back on the ROAD..

0-60 MPH = 3.3
0-100 KPH = 3.5 (100 KPH is 62 MPH)

Car & Driver already did 0-60 MPH in 3.0 though That is the fastest I've seen so far...

The gearing makes huge differences...2 vs 3 shifts etc etc and sometimes the cars that are geared for 60 at the end of second need an upshift for those extra 2 mph. The GT3 does it in 2...

It's pretty common for Porsches to need .2 sec for the extra 2.14 mph, without requiring another shift. This is normal if you look at some other models too...
