When it’s all said and done, this the one; 991.2 GT3. I’ve not had the privilege of a ride in one yet, but I was able to sit in and start one up at @porschecentresheffield_uk , and the engine literally pulses through the car with intent. It’s a visceral sensation, and I can only imagine what 9000rpm and 500 bhp must feel like, particularly with a manual box. It’s all the car I need. Still not sure if I’d go with a manual or PDK though. Manual for the interaction and more connection with spirited driving speeds on the road. But if you ever really intend to do track driving, PDK is the only way to go, as I experienced in a 991.2 GTS at PEC Silverstone recently. Dream spec would be PTS Forrest Green Metallic, satin platinum wheels, PCCB, 918 buckets with yellow contrast stitching and houndstooth inserts (a nod to @oakgruenmetallic beautiful spec GT3 Touring aka Eva) and full carbon interior pack. It’s just ‘the one’.
Sleepless in Switzerland.
Going to bed at 2am, and getting up at 5.30am. Why? Car-related shenanigans... The last time I felt this tired was on the Touring Trip, only difference being (really small detail), after driving Eva at 6am I didn’t have to go back to my desk...😭 @killsbugsfast#flatsixmemories#porschemoment
When Lila met Eva...
Soon I’ll be able to share some spectacular shots from an impromptu photo shoot with a fellow Porker, whom I met through a mutual friend (@killsbugsfast ) Luckily, two of us didn’t mind disrupting our beauty sleep schedule (looking at you @killsbugsfast ) 😂. The result will be worth the three hours I slept before #fos2018 💚💜
A weekend I won’t forget, not in a hurry, not ever. Endless moments to recount, a great many laughs and too much excitement. What summed it up like little else could: a GT department legend, who I’m proud to call a friend, clarified that Eva is from one place, and one place only: Flacht.

For the 2.7RS, Porsche had two versions: the Lightweight (M471), which was a stripped out homologation special, and the Touring (M472). Some 2.7RS even had the rare factory ducktail delete (including one development prototype and one family car), so I guess you could say, Eva has some pretty big shoes to fill. #flatsixmemories#porschemoment#fos2018
