The GT3 makes no sense at all in this case. The GT3 is a "stripped" track model. If you are looking for a track car, the GTR is far superior and MUCH MUCH faster. So, as a MACHINE, the GT3 isn't even in the running against the GTR, since if all you want is a track monster, the GTR is far superior. Now, if you want a fast daily driver, a GTR vs a regular Carrera of your choosing would make a lot more sense. This is where the GTR loses to the Porsche. It loses on the name. It loses on the curb appeal. It loses on the panty dropping factor. However, like I said, as a driving machine who's sole purpose is fast laptimes, there isn't really a contest.
