    Its in the name. Porsche intended this car to handle better than the Turbo once they started even with 2 wheels driving the car.
     
  2. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    GT 2 o okay I see
     
  3. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

  4. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Dude...Chill.
     
  5. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    depends on your skill.
    the awd turbo is as far as i know way easier to drive since it's more of a understeerer.

    the gt2 is even more wild. if your good with rwd, i suppose the gt2 is better. if it wasn't, why would they make the faster version a rwd then?
     
  6. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Yeah I have to agree with that.
     
  7. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    GT2 looks great in red, before I saw it on the road and wow it is sooo nice in red........
     
  8. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Looks better in black.
     
  9. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    nah, yellow is definately the way to go.
     
  10. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Yellow stands out more but black looks intimadating.
     
  11. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Handling on dry pavement goes to the GT2, but in the wet surface probably the Turbo cause it got the PSM (porsche stability Managment) Its kind of like a special traction control system for the porsches w/ 4 wheel drive in the rain.
     
  12. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    yeah I have to agree with that...
     
  13. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    i dunno, i mean yellow can be intimidating.

  15. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Not really.
     
  16. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    the GT2 pulled over 1.00 g-forces on the skidpad

  19. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    For the wet and snow the Turbo for the dry the GT2 Overall My pick is the GT2
     
  20. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    i was under the impression that the turbo and the gt2 share a much different suspension setup (not talking about 4wd). Also arent there slight differences in chassie setup
     
  21. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    ive got no idea about track performance but i also dont care, on the road both of these cars are uselessthe 996 may have 4wd but it still goes sideways verry easily even with the PSM on under heavy braking the bloody thing weaves all over the road!.
    The GT2 We were assured was much better and that we would love it, yeah loved it s much we had it for 4 days only drove it on 3 of them!
    it is easilly oupaces around here by my subaru and even my off roader (Izusu trooper) can take the corners faster!
    im sure they will both be fine on a track but that is all they are goodfor, the GT2 is so dangerous, let off the gas in a straight line at 130mph and the back end wobbles around (happened more than once), and at 150+ is starts floating, it does this on the flattest roads around so dont blame that, on country roads , god help it, it feels like its trying to find a fiels, go into a corner that my subaru takes at a comfortable 80 in this thing at 65 and it slides onto the wrong side of the road, well it doesnt slie it kind of bounces and slips there, if i had to choose I would take the 996 as it is mildly better, but I would rather live so Ggiven up on all porsches forever, i have no confidence in the Carera GT even though it is mid engined, the boxter was also very unstable, so they better have improved.

    and if u want figures think how silly a £90,000+ porsche looks if it can do 1.14g at most on a grippy surface , and the £27,000 Subaru Imprza and the £28,000 Lancer Evo 7 can pull 1.38 and 1.39g in the damp!, so u cant blame the dodgy handling on the weight or the awd.

    YOUR SICK...get help immediately! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> Maybe it depends on the driver and how daring you are...Because of all the people I know that have driven or owned a GT2 said its the best car they've driven in their lives.
     
  23. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    so u never seen one but u know people who have had them? gee u think they would be nice enough to take u out, maybee they not driven anything better, plus where you live depends upon your opinion of the car. I'm talking about the roads it has to try to cope with, it cant handle the roads rond here anywhere near aswell as my scooby or a ferrari, lambo, or aston and quite a few other cars.
     
  24. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    Do you have proof to back this shit up or are you talking trash? Look at the time it did on the Nurburgring Circuit
     
  25. Re: Turbo or GT2 (handling)

    ok, i am talking about on road performance which is where a blody supercar should be good, that is on a track on the road it is totally useless compared to equivalent machinery.
    and the only proof i have is in car video footage which i cant get onto the computer so u will have to come visit.
