I posted earlier to inquire whether anyone has purchased and driven 991 GT3 to share his/her experience. I ordered, and picked up my 991 GT3 about 3 weeks ago (PTS, red dials, stitchings, and belts, LED headlights, front axel lift, sports chrono, leather interior, sports adaptive seats, extended fuel tank, clear side markers with LED lamps, and a few other options). All I can say is, for far, it is an amazing car, Notwithstanding that it would be difficult to make a true objective assessment of the car performance due to mandated 2000-mile brake-in limitations (4200 RPM max), it is an absolute joy to drive this car. I have driven the car for more than 500 miles now, and I would like to share a few attributes of the car: 1. Throttle response is lightning quick. 2. PDK sport is great; gear changes are almost instantaneous (even in normal mode); I usually use the manual mode. Frankly, I could care less about pseudo-experts demonizing the car because of absence of manual transmission or the buyers who choose PDK; just to clarify, I have been doing heel-and-toe (or more appropriately phrased toe-and-heel) gear changes for the past 30 years (sometimes I use the double clutch technique to revisit the old habit); it is second nature to me, and I don't even think about it when I am doing this. Nevertheless, for me, PDK sport in GT3 is light years ahead of manual transmission, and I would have ordered the car with PDK even if it were a costly option. 3. Steering is wonderful, even though it is electric. To the chagrin of traditionalists, it is certainly better than my 2007 997 turbo (with a manual transmission), or even better than my previous 2005 911 GT3 which I drove it for 8 years. 4. Brakes are second to none. I have standard cast iron disks.
