i traded my 991.1 GT3
for 675LT Coupe
(Thanks to CJ)

i don't think the 675LT replace the GT3
i think i need them both !
GT3 991.2 (manual)

what i love in the GT3 more then the 675LT:
you can "touch" the limit on the street , with the 675LT it's too crazy
i love the NA engine
the build quality of Porsche
the grip

can't feel the same "in love" with the 720S
compare when i saw the 675LT for the first time
the front is weird for me
can't wait to see the 720 LT version , it will be really crazy, i'm sure.

Jesus. Consider that the author is JR Hildebrand. Who may or may not know a thing or two about pedaling a fast car.

Eventually you reach a limit of basic adhesion to the road, but the gains in both performance and confidence were undeniable. The same gains became evident in low-speed corners as more-than-once I thought for sure I’d overestimated a braking point and was able to neatly carve down to the apex all the same. In both situations I could feel the car just begin to do what I would normally expect at precisely the moment I’d expect it, but was able to break through that perceived limit in a whole new way. It also struck me how seamlessly it did these things–the dynamic systems of the car were affording me more room to play without noticeably cutting in and impeding my driving experience unlike many of the traction and stability aids out in the world. The process I was going through in exploring what the car could really do blew my mind. It was capable in ways that modern racecars could only wish to be.

Default went from GT3.1 to 570s to GT3.2

I felt the lag was pretty signif though, on the track. Really had to get the wheel straight to get the power down. I still contemplate the 720S as I love the idea of Mclaren and think the 720S is the best looking of the bunch with many improvements, but that's just me. My real concern is just reliability with heavy track abuse. It's really hard to beat Porsche in this regard but Lambo and Audi seem to be approaching them. I wonder if Mclarens new cars are holding up well, if so and the shenanigans continue Mac may be the future for me, as always CJs input is always good.
The 570s is truly a beautiful car, very fast and fun to drive. It is not a track car IMO. tires too narrow, not enough downforce an too soft in the turns....even at Sebring. I loved owning it for 7 months, but cannot wait to get back into the GT3. McLaren is 15-20 mph faster at end of straights but lap time is almost 5 seconds slower. Really too bad. Expensive lesson.

Maybe complicated by the lack of a mechanical LSD?

The LT is such a monster. It will def go down in the history books for Mclaren. Its one of the best looking cars they have developed, and one of the few cars I have driven that I feel is too fast to really enjoy on the road without being a complete ***. This is mainly because I have been a complete ***.

Somehow the oversized wheels made the car look 2x better in my eyes. Maybe its the Louisiana coming out of me.

wow, the wheels really make a big difference! Normally don't LOVE the 720 aesthetics, but that's pretty hot.

The 600LT will be shown at Goodwood. Looks like it will have top exit exhaust, fixed wing, weight loss etc. Limited numbers on the Coupe but more Spiders will be built (will follow on)
