I quite like the Panamera in Sports Turismo guise but they don’t do a manual Very Happy

In fact the only model I would buy in the current Porsche line up is the one they won’t sell me. I suspect I’m not alone in that thinking Question

No, you're not alone at all. Probably several hundred people in the same queue. food food

Would be interesting to see just how many GT3 cars would be sold in the UK if there was no restriction on availability.

Due to differences to the body it hasn't been possible (even as a retrofit) to put rear seats in a GT3 since the 997.1, thus you don't need an allocation after all. You must be so relieved... Hand

another raid of the parts bin by the marketing chumps.

a gt3 should be full fat with all the wings, lunmps, bumps, oddities and not so comfy bits to it please. its a ***** race car for the road....not a shopping sofa. that is what normal porkers are for now right with PDK? Wink

the gt3 has been softened up too much already for my liking and with this touring shizzle they are close to pushing it over the edge. doing the PDK offering in the 991.1 version was sacrilege alone. now this!

a Touring is a BMW estate in my books.

I spotted one of these in the Langdale valley the other week parked outside a pub!

I wondered what it was with centre lock wheels and no spoiler.

100% sure It was badged GT3 Touring, and was white.

Am I dreaming? The dates don't match up.

Chris Harris picked his up from Reading OPC last week, black with gold wheels.

One imagines he did not struggle to get on 'the list'

Two in OPC Guildford today. Metallic black one and a white one under a cover.

Still think GT cars should have wings though. The black one looked great as a dark 'R' to me.
