So: into the narrow seat of the Porsche. The six-cylinder boxer comes to life when the start button is pressed. The sucker literally roars at you. End of the pit lane, full throttle! The full potential of the rear engine can be felt immediately. The Porsche 911 GT3 R drives like on rails. Thanks to the driving aids such as ABS and traction control, which can be regulated in multiple stages, the Porsche is relatively easy to master even for amateur drivers. You can press the brake pedal with all your strength before cornering without locking the wheels. Oversteering power out of corners is also not a challenge thanks to traction control.
