There's something totally different about GT3 (RS) owners than to all other cars out there. They are special. I've never met one who wasn't a total petrolhead, enthusiast driver it or just super open minded about sharing his love for (these) cars. They're not those persons you'd call a "rich bloke showing off" like most Lambo or Ferrari-owners. It's pure passion and i love that. The essence of Porsche. Driving sensation, evolution and pedigree. (ok, i'll stop praising these Cayenne/Panamera-building two faced hypocrats) Just like owners and their dogs ;) you can always tell them apart.
Thanks for these words and pictures.

I would've never thought you were doing all of this alone! Each of your videos seemed to be so well thought through and meticulously scripted that it couldn't just be one person behind it ... AWESOME and i salute!
Keep up the work - and allow yourself some sleep from time to time ;)

@Onyx I've just seen Alok together with the guys form format67.net at Bilster Berg race track in Germany on fb... now THAT would be a combo!

That 356 is just perfect! And the 993 sporting a 997 GT3-bumper actually looks quite good! Would've never thought about that combo ...

Wow. This is just wow. I love the open airfilters, giving it two cyborg eyes ;)
I'm still struggling with the fact of this being street legal though, as this monster engine will probably suck in little children and spit them out through the waste gate. Not to mention little baby ducks and kittens!! Evil...
Nothing else to say - especially at 0:36 ;)

@Jake Laird Will you enlighten us with what you actually mean? You can't argue with the need of rollcage and race harnesses in this dropped to "unusability", 170hp monster machine ;)

Apart from the parachute you could even call this kind of a sleeper ;) ..Perfect looks and obvious attention to detail and "completeness". I very much like!

In Germany there's a growing trend towards modified Defenders. Aluminium step plates, spare wheel on the bonnet, roof luggage rack, snorkel-intake, cable winch, all terrain tires ... none of these ever even sees mud. ;) Just big, (relatively) uncomfortable shopping carts.

@Brett Allen @maxproof True as well.
But you have to keep in mind that SH is one of the main players in car scene related journalism and therefore opinion making itself.
I just cannot ignore my growing suspicions when nearly 100% of the Japanese-derived articles speak of Miura-San and "suddenly" there's a collaboration which "coincidently" is chosen as a top 5 car, of a rather important international car show, without being 'that' special!?
This bugs me because SH means interesting versatile articles by passionate people for me - not viral marketing.

@Brett Allen Guess these days you need a rear diffusor, cut out fenders and huge DTM-wings to match your already undrivably lowered ZN6 (obviously without serious engine modification) on stretched tires to be someone. Oh..and don't forget that the parts have to be off Mr. Miura/..(insert any SH sponsor from below).
I don't want to offend or criticise your excellent and committed work here in general. I love your site. It's just that your coverage seemed a bit too biased sometimes for the last months.
I think we shouldn't over-interpret this. In the end it says: "Enhanced safety and precision at the vehicle's limits with highly automated driving - A research project ..."
This definitely is not meant as replacing the driver or even letting the car drive itself in a "manly way". It's a safety feature, to teach the car how to behave and correct in fast and possibly dangerous situations.
Although i don't believe in the benefit of safety assists on the road as people should (and could) just go back to concentrating on the road instead of fiddling with their entertainment system, this kind of technology could prevent mistakes in certain sport-environments. I'd rather see my car on track than in armco and - maybe - it could help me with that while preserving good laptimes instead of ruining them like ESP and Traction controls.
I hear all the driving-gods crying out about a sports car having to be "raw", "unfiltered" and "involving" but seriously - this is a 235i not a die hard 993RS oder Radical. Just take a look at the usual Nordschleife Touristenfahrten Crash-Compilation videos and you see what a good working assist like this could be good for.

I usually read everything you guys write on this site before heading to the images - this time i had to skip reading at first. Holy cow. I even liked 90% of the modifications... speechless. I. Want. To. Go. There. Next. Year.

Very cool feature. It's great to see which differences these "few" selected modifications can make. I've always found the 86 a bit too tail happy for track use (much fun though!) and i'd tend to call the standard brakes more "ok" than "great". Do you know whether the brake rotors and callipers are the same they sell under the TRD-brand (for a whopping 2000€ per wheel)? I'd very much like to know whether they pay off ...

I hopefully won't get distracted too much by spotting "wrong" brake discs and calipers during the film ;)
Very interesting coverage though and finally i'm looking forward to this movie...

One question though: Is this thing limited to photography?

It has the same "huge buttocks" problem as the panamera ... combined with a front end quite much "inspired" by Lexus'. Nothing special for me.
