    It already been said that the engine is 3.8l, which i would like to point out is engraved in the side of the rear wing!

    Does anyone else think that Porsche's steering wheels are wicked ugly?

    It fits the interior's simplicity. It's ok by me.

    I don't understand why everyone is saying the interior is smple.

    It has sat-nav, climate control and all sots of buttons and gizmos. It even has a stopwatch (or whatever it is) on top of the dash.

    That's not simple to me.

    Simple shapes.
    It could have all the buttons in the world but if the shapes a deceptively simple enough the interior will look plain and utilitarian like this one's.

    The only cars that Ferrer will be ever be satisfied about will be the Italian cars from the 70's.

    And, somehow, his 1-series.

    Ferrer, did you split the cost of it with your Mom out of curiosity, and how much was it?

    This is along the lines of what I was thinking in terms of simplicity. It has simple and sleek interior lines.

    I still insist talking about the GT3´s styling, which isn´t even bad at all, is barking at the wrong tree.

    A GT3 does not suit posers.The only thing that matters is what it feels like to be behind the wheel of one of these. To you.

    How would any 911 look ridiculous!? This is the most recognizable car that has ever existed and probably ever will.

    The new GT3 looks like it was made for "posers". The previous one looked subtle and purposeful, only a slightly pronounced front and a graceful wing giving away it's true purpose. This one's overly aggressive style makes me think it's towards marketed at people who are determined to convince other people they drive a racecar for the road.

    For me a simple interior is the one from the Lotus Elise. Or at the other end of the scale the one from Fiat Panda

    Yep I did. After haggling it cost about 25.000€ (originally 27.000€).

    Subtle?
    I think not.

    Any car with a bodykit and wing like the GT3's will stand out like a sore thumb.
    No GT3 has ever been subtle, but this is definitely less subtle than the rest. However, I'm with teatako, when driving around on a track it doesn't matter how it looks. If I wanted a fast 911 for cruising I'd get a Turbo.

    agreed. it's nowhere near as focused/hardcore as some people here seem to think

    i agree, i think the in your face sort of styling suits the RS, but not so much the GT3. i understand they're trying to make it faster etc etc, but the 996 GT3 for example has little to separate it from the carrera - all the work is under the skin

    I spose when I was thinking about the interior I had the interior of for example the new Jag XF or something and compared to that its fairly sparse! As someone mentioned they've designed it in a way that doesn't make it look overly cluttered.

    Ah yes. But then again the XF interior is one of the best this side of a Roller.

    And of course it is an executive saloon, while this is a radical track car.
