    Yet in most other tests, it can't shake the 997S. I'd save my $ and get a cheaper, faster Porsche.

    I'm sure that you can get a GT3 for about the same coin as the R8. :naughty:

    Meh, I really doubt that too many people who are in the market for a 911 turbo are going to opt for the R8 instead.

    I know a guy who works at an audi/porsche dealership. He said when the regional owners or some shit like that went to az to race it against cars in its class nothing came close to beating it.
