Having the Carrera RS 2.7 livery means something. Red (or preferably blue) wheels are a hint that some lightweight stuff will be going on. This, for some, is one of the best handling Porsches ever built. The car does NOT have traction control, which is NOT something silly. Some of you might think they could need TC if it rains or when you lend your car to your wife, but, would you give away this car to your wife if you don’t trust her? Or would you push this car to its limits under heavy rain on a public street? We all know the answer is no. So why? Why Porsche? Why are the 911 GT3 RS’ built after 996 are somehow softer cars? Why do they have TC? I think there must be a line between GT3 & GT3 RS. If you’re buying an RS (RennSport) you should get the car manual, no TC & with the roll cage, no questions asked. Can a car be this sexy with some stickers on and without muscled up fenders? It sure can.
The Scale Model
This happens to be my first proper AUTOart and Porsche. I love the wheels, I love the brakes, interior etc. It even is like today’s Signature Series. AUTOart payed enough attention to the special Porsche’s like this one. The wheel colours are perfectly in match with the real one. Since the engine is covered in the real car also I won’t criticise the model.
