Porsche 911 is the most iconic car which you can buy. 911 did not lost its soul and character more than forty years and it is the perfection of automotive. From the door handle to steering wheel, 911 is the top level of automotive engineering. Making the same car for more than forty years is not something very usual to see in automotive industry, especially a normal life cycle of a car is seven years. After that seven years, only the brand remains the same, the rest totally changes. But in 911, nothing has changed since it was first designed!
However, during last forty years marketing has changed! And we learned something called product range extension! This is helps to increase produce range by offering different kind of tastes, like Louis Vuitton is offering the same hand bag with different cover but they are the same! I am sure that if you ask Louis Vuitton, they can tell you one hundred different reasons why they are offering the same handbag with different looking! Interestingly, this is the same with Porsche 911. Now it has more than fourteen different types.
You can have 911 Carrera or Carrera 4 or Carrera S or Carrera 4S or Turbo or Turbo S or GT2 RS or GT3 or GT3 RS and this goes like that forever. You have to study for one month to memorize every single model! Like Louis Vuitton, it is a bit annoying. Because, Porsche is charging different prices for minor differences even the Ferdinand Porsche cannot realize those details.
I am sure, you can understand the difference in Nürburgring. Yes, all of us hang out in Nürburgring everyday! I wanted to find out the differences, but I didn’t go to Germany I just log onto their website. And I wanted to find out what are the differences of 911 GT2 RS, GT3 and GT3 RS!
Basically, they are all same. Designed for circuit, when you drive them in daily basis, your lungs will change their places with your kidneys. They are aimed to be light and to be fast. They are not offering much comfort and this will kill your back! Actually, I analysed their technical details but I don’t want to write them here. What I found out is, Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the best option. It is the fastest, the most economical, the lightest and the hugs trees with the lowest emission levels.
So if you are going to buy a hardcore Porsche 911, you don’t need to look for each model! Just buy the 911 GT2 RS which develops 620 horsepower, reaches 100 km/h in 3,5 seconds and top speed of 330 km/h! Who cares the other options ;) For Louis Vuitton, I think you should prefer the cheapest one, because they don’t offer any detail :)
