  1. They always have problems with that concrete. Duplicated this race today . 991 turbo S vs F12. The Porsche wins all the way to 130mph . The F12 looked like it was going to take over after that

  2. The argument of the porsche boy is that the German costs a little less, as if the people who buy these cars were counting their coins, haha

  3. I think if you ran this around a track it would be very different. anyway, I was still surprised given today an F12 is £160/170k and a Black Series is more than double that. pound for pound any way you look at it, the Porsche is by far the best car for the money.
