It's not like I would be choosing a Prius. I actually like the GT2, it's only problem is that its now generation old.

The GT2 RS and the 600LT both ran 10.0-sec 1/4-mile times in Road & Track's Brutal Track Star testing. However, the Porsche hit 140 mph and the McLaren hit 129.7 mph. The McLaren has more of the grip. The McLaren actually has quicker times to 120 than the GT2 RS, but they are advertised a little slower [even with the same 1/4-mile time and lower trap speed] to make the GT2 RS feel faster.

PORSCHE GT2 RS (in article "Brutal Track Stars!") Road & Track 8/2018 issue acceleration test results: (1/4-mile: 10.0 s / 140.0 mph)
0-30 mph = 1.1 s
0-40 mph = 1.6 s
0-50 mph = 2.1 s
0-60 mph = 2.6 s
0-70 mph = 3.1 s
0-80 mph = 3.7 s
0-90 mph = 4.3 s
0-100 mph = 4.8 s
0-110 mph = 6.2 s
0-120 mph = 7.4 s
0-130 mph = 9.0 s
0-140 mph = 10.2 s
0-150 mph = 11.6 s
0-160 mph = 13.2 s

MCLAREN 600LT (in article "Brutal Track Stars!") Road & Track 8/2018 issue acceleration test results: (1/4-mile: 10.0 s / 129.7 mph)
0-30 mph = 1.2 s (actually 0.8 s)
0-40 mph = 1.6 s (actually 1.2 s)
0-50 mph = 2.2 s (actually 1.8 s)
0-60 mph = 2.7 s (actually 2.3 s)
0-70 mph = 3.3 s (actually 2.9 s)
0-80 mph = 3.8 s (actually 3.4 s)
0-90 mph = 4.3 s (actually 3.9 s)
0-100 mph = 5.0 s (actually 4.6 s)
0-110 mph = 6.7 s (actually 6.3 s)
0-120 mph = 8.2 s (actually 7.8 s)
0-130 mph = 10.0 s
0-140 mph = 12.8 s
0-150 mph = 15.9 s
0-160 mph = 20.1 s

In a banned clip, the McLaren driver admitted to hitting 60 mph in 2.3 seconds (even the 0-30 time, 0.82999733 seconds), but the R&T moderation team omitted that and decided to state 2.7 versus 2.6 for the Porsche. R&T then forced the authors to lie that the reaction time on the McLaren was -0.4 seconds, even though the McLaren didn't cut the light.

It is very impressive for an "entry-level track" McLaren. It even took the Porsche 1,020 feet to eventually try to keep up with the McLaren.
