Mario and the word 'absolutely', that is! :)

Oh and the GT3 and the R8 pretty great too.

 Out of the two I’d take the Porsche, why?, Well, it just looks the complete package, so it’s track focused, but, who among are just going to do track days with one?, and, with restraint we’d drive it everyday, the Audi though for me is too wide, it’s a faux Huracán in all but body, I like the color though!

Two fantastic cars... but condemned.

Try to buy a GT3, though.

...but predict 911 wins. Am I Right? Whatever, I’d get 911, but it would be 997.2 GT3 for me.

No manual - no fun

    The Audi TT RS has the looks, a vociferous engine and the supercar-baiting performance, but is it too uncompromising to use as a daily driver?
