Yea, she is worth way more than that car. Actually, Iĺll bet over the same 5 year period she costs way more too....

I have nothing meaningful to add to this.

Cool to see the 992.1 Turbo and 992.1 GT3 testing at the same time. I do wonder if the 992.1 Turbo's spoiler is raised too high, but it still looks better than the clam shell design of the 992s.

Super excellent share.

I wonder if the underside of the wing is currently covered in black tape. If the underside was body colored, it should improve the look a lot?

Porsche really shouldn't put a naturally aspirated GT3 on the track with the turbo cars though, as it just points out how awful the latter cars sound. That RS just looks and sounds wicked.

Exactly my thoughts. The RS sounds "open" and powerful, the others muffled and a lot of flow noises.

None of those 992's sounded NA.. So IF one of those was indeed a 992 GT3 then you better bet yourself that it's boosted.

Some of those 992's looked like a mouse.

Am thinking more that Lava Orange will be a 992 launch colour.
