SpeedKing  3m ago @Cauf40f50

The GT2RS and Pista are closely matched on track and you need to remember that journo lap times should not be taken seriously in any comparison because they're not racing drivers and some are faster than others therefore lap times mean jack shit. That's the accurate answer to your question :)

The average Ferrari fanboy always mocks 911 considering the Porsche as "tuned" VW Beetle. Well, this top range track-ready "911-beetle" is capable to face the top range track-ready Ferrari.
And this happens... notwithstanding 911 is heavier and less powerful of the italian counterpart!
I think there could be two possible explanations for this fact:

1) Ferrari is clearly overrated.
2) 911 is clearly underrated.

Let's think what a mid-engined 911 GT2 RS could be capable of doing...
Maybe it could cut in two halves the 488 Pista on a track!
Honestly, I don't think a rear-engined Pista could be capable of doing the same against the GT2 RS.

Wow at 1st the owner of 992 says his few days old Porsche has to be returned to replace engine sensor, then 3 months later he has to wait for the part to fix that PADM failure.

But overall he is very happy with a car, he says.

Only an idiot would say that the 911 is a tuned Beatle... It's an absolutely unique car. Nobody else uses the b6 rear engine and it's really a versatile car, ranging from a normal Carrera to a gt2RS. It's one of the most successful, if not the most successful, sportcars of all time. It's always considered the driver car par excellence and the best daily sportcar. This gt2rs in particular owes its incredible track performances to the cup2R tyres. The Ferrari uses them too. However, in the few tracks where Porsche bested Ferrari it was mainly because
-the Ferrari was on cup2 and the Porsche on cup2R (Vairano)
-the track was wet
-the driver was a professional pilot chosen by the factory (the Nurburgring laptime of the Porsche) and not a journalist (the Nurburgring laptime of the Ferrari, by Sportauto).
If both cars are driven by the same pilot on cup2Rs it looks like the Ferrari is slightly faster, both on a track and on a straightline.
But then again, Porsche is less powerful, heavier and with a rear engine. It's still an incredible car able to match the performances of the Ferrari.
Would Ferrari be able to do the same? I don't know, but you should also consider that Porsche has 50+ years of experience with rear-engines, Ferrari has always used middle or front-engines. Besides the rear engine is the Porsche trade-mark. Anybody trying to replicate it would look like a copycat...


User avatar

Tommi95  10m ago

Actually the Cayman, which is mid-engine, is slightly faster than a Carrera with roughly the same power. But the performance gain is very limited, because the balance of a 911 is nearly perfect despite the rear engine. So a mid-engine would be faster than a rear-engine one, but not by much.

It's CPC


User avatar

SpeedKing  9m ago @Tracker

Ok it's time to clear up this acronym nonsense. Chinese Communist Party CCP also refers to the Communist Party of China (CPC), or in shorthand the Party, as distinct from the government or the country. The Party is the founding political party of the People’s Republic of China. While eight other political parties are legal in China, the CCP has a monopoly as the only governing party. CPC is used officially in China and by China’s media, whereas English-language media outside of Chinese conventionally use CCP.

"in 1985 Porsche won the Dakar with their supercar at the time with the 959"

ahahahah. a 959 entering paris-dakar shares just those 3 digits printed somewhere with the road legal version. calling that a 959 in analogy with the stock 959 means understanding a jack s*it, poor german fanboy. Ferrari always focused on f1, as everybody knows, and ditched most of other race series, unlike porsche who always roamed around for some races to win as they have always been highly unsuccessful in f1.

Your the stupid one dumb ****, the gt2rs went into production June 2017, it's a whole year older than the 488 posts, if you noticed half the tracks the gt2 is quicker and the other half the 488 is, different cars suit different tracks, but the gt2 puts 13 seconds on the 488 with an older car with slightly less hp and more weight lol, yet it still holds it's own, of course the 488 should be just as quick if not quicker I mean isn't that the point to beat your rivals with a newer car lol, and do some homework the Cayenne and mecan sell all over the world in high numbers


User avatar

Lck  9m ago @manone

Ferrari always concentrated on f1 you sure have that right and their doing well against Mercedes today hey? Lmao, and Porsche always concentrated on LeMans prototypes hence the 19x 24 hour victories which no other manufacturer has matched, 54-55 Mercedes that won the f1 championships were designed by porsche, Porsche designed alot of winning cars for audi, auto Union, how about the tag-porsche engine that kicked arse in the 80's with McLaren... Even McLaren said it was the most potent engine, it's hilarious you'd even mention Ferrari with f1 they can't win shit anymore lmao, and they concentrate on f1 your words

Lck  9m ago @dr. cosimo

Up until the 430 came along Ferraris were a piece of shit on the roads driving in the real world, so yea "about time" they made something you can actually drive on the street, I don't need to listen to you wanker Ferrari fan boy fags, car testers all around the world for decades have stated the Porsche 911 is the allround benchmark for sportscars, you guys finally have usable cars with the last couple models lol, unlike you I actually own a 997 turbo s and drive it every weekend, I don't need to dream of maybe one day owning an over priced fiat lol, keep dreaming, Porsche were always more realistic with their prices

Hey dumb shit I was born way before 2000, and when the gt2 came out it was the quickest, and yes do some homework cause it lapped the ring in 6:47 with the standard pilot cup tyres as the track was opened to the public for proof.. you say about a 992 transmission issue lmao, Google Ferrari issues you'll never get to the bottom of them lol, and Porsche also claimed they could have made the gt2 quicker they didn't need to their aim was to beat the huracan which it did, how else was the gt2 RS Mr albe to go 7 seconds quicker around the ring with nothing more than updated aero and firmer suspension..Ferrari and lambo always have to go with tofeo r tyres when claiming their times, and if you think Porsches have bad transmissions why can't you elaborate of the 991 turbos 50 launches in a row, show me a Ferrari that will do that lmao

f1 has always been the leading (budget-wise, technology-wise, etc)
automotive competition bar none. f1 may be boring as shìt now, you may like it or not, but it will not change that fact. How many f1 world constructor's titles did Porsche win? how many did Ferrari win?

"Ferrari always concentrated on f1 you sure have that right and their doing well against Mercedes today hey?"

you're still a baby who needs to be fed from a bottle before gawking and screaming

there are tons of reports where the vw-911 engine and transmission have failed since they went dct and downgraded to wet-sump lol, whether you like it or not, a fact is a fact son, lol

like i said, both cars on equal tires = game over gt2

but since you're a donkey and can't read through the lines, i can't help it but think of you as a german donkey that needs to be whipped hard to get the message through your blockhead lol

practical and everyday use you say ? try 4:30 lol

Any of these cars are way beyond my means, but not my friends. Last week I had the chance to drive a friend's 488 Pista up & down part of my daily commute, Page Mill Rd. in the Santa Cruz Mountains. There is an 8 mile section with a 2000' elevation change in 8 miles with 108 turns. He didn't know I was a former SCCA road race & rally driver. My test drive surprised him and amazed me how smooth and neutral the car was in power, handling and braking. I normally drive that section in a mildly-tuned Audi A4. He said the next test drive should be in his Lamborghini Huracan Performante for an AWD comparison, and possibly in his Ferrari F12 TDF. I will then ask another friend if we can test drive his 911GT2 RS on the same road. With luck, I will post an amateur real-world, "first drive" comparison of all 3 cars/drive setups if anyone (other than me) is interested

I am so glad Ferrari won. I mean, I love Porsche. It's a bran that I love and every car it produces is great, from the 718 to the 911 to the Panamera to the SUVs to the 918. I love it. But Ferrari is an Italian, ancient brand which does only top of the range cars and it's incredible how despite Italian economic problems it still manages to do amazing cars. And in this case Ferrari 488 Pista is the better car. Faster on a track, on a straight line, classier (no rear wing). Porsche has a handicap though (rear engine instead of mid engine and 6 cylindres instead of 8) do to being a 911 and it's amazing on its own.
