The front suspension was overhauled for this gen. Pulled from the cup car.

I dunno about some of these picks. Anyone throw up a bit w the Bentley being mentioned? That monstrosity is over 5,000lbs! I dunno about how they define "performance" but that's not in my dictionary.

Thank God someone else sees this list as a cherry picked one.

Should they have thrown the ousted Vipers back on the list since the market for Vipers is insane right now?

depends on your usage. on track yes the new one is a good bit faster... its mainly due to the tire advantage (cup2r) and the big wing generating downforce. it runs the same time as the old GT3RS which had those same advantages over the last gt3.

but because of the big aero it needs to run a stiff suspension. i've heard its less enjoyable on the street unless you're on perfect roads. the old car had a more compliant suspension for road use.

Blackwing is going to make top three, just don't know which spot. Tough group this year. GT3 has to take it, right? I see M4 being in bottom three.

Supposedly the new front double wishbone changes the car dramatically. Even though front is now twice as stiff as previous GT3, 992 still gains comfort for street driving with new suspension setup.

I agree with the poll that the GT3 is the car to beat, but the STO deserves more than the current 0 votes

Objectively speaking I haven't seen any car this year with as much universal praise as the 765LT.

"The performance of this vehicle is beyond anything folks should be able to just buy and drive on the street." - Road and Track.

Yet they've omitted it from their own list...gotta love this modern age of journalism.

The 992 also has 6 individual throttle bodies. The throttle input response must be instantaneous this time around.

This is a very good point. I wonder if Mclaren wasn't able to make one available for the comparo…

If it's anything like on the SS setting on an M then I'm happy and like most I went for the 992.

The Bentley is absolutely a performance car.

Wouldn't surprised if its one of the CT5-V BW, GT3, or GTI.

Exactly the situation. Same with MT, they only include cars they can get their hands on for same day tests.

Well, maybe to some but not in my books. Straight-line, sure, but what about everything else? Might as well buy a rocket and attach wheels to it. I prefer light and able to handle the twisties.
