You can but would you want to? Stiff, loud (if you have muffler delete), heavy clutch, wear and tear, awful stereo.

Because driving it every day makes you feel alive. Driving a smooth luxury car is like riding around in a hearse.

I will wait till I am dead for that ride

I drive mine almost as a daily driver, and I love it. I start work early, and I take a nicer, but longer route.. However, the clutch is very heavy. That is the biggest detractor. Ride is not bad, and sofa seats are comfy. I would not enjoy it at all if I were in a lot of stop and go traffic. Waste of miles.

Driving a beast on public streets at legal speeds is like getting a handy from a supermodel rather than the real thing.

You must be doing it wrong then (the driving, not the supermodel. A handy from one is still a handy......)

The car doesn't need to driven at 10/10's to enjoy. Slow or fast, the experience is the same.

I disagree, driving around at 40 mph in 6th gear at 2,300 RPM is no fun even with my loud GMG bypass.

Different strokes for different folks (are we talking about Handy's again?)

GT3's hate to be lugged around. Not sure why you would be in 6th at 40 mph. That's not how German's drive. And yes I have a bypass on yellow RS and a Akra race on the 4.0. Use all the rev range all the time. That's how Porsche intended it.

Most of my work commute is to/from the airport, so I take an SUV and leave the GT3 at home. But when I work in town, I heel-toe my way all the way to downtown Dallas in my cowboy boots. Been doing that for over 8 years in this car, and it never gets old.

The epitome of GT3 ownership for me is when my wife - who daily drives a comfy Panamera - suggests that we take the GT3 out for date night. She has mastered the art of "falling" into and climbing out of the GT2 buckets, has learned to ignore the harnesses and instead reach for the 3-point belt, and doesn't even try to turn on the radio.

Can't imagine owning one and not tracking it.
Can't imagine owning one and not driving it every day.
