Morning guys bright and early here today is the day .
If you're a member of the channel , you already know a little bit of the back story of what's going on today .
But if not , you guys saw the video where I said , I was saying goodbye to this thing .
I am not selling it privately , although I could get a marginally better price .
I found a car .
There's a whole story around this and it's at Porsche of Naples and I've been working with them and they've been awesome to work with .
And the best thing about it is they're totally cool with me driving the thing four hours , putting another 200 miles on it and getting to enjoy what will be my last cruise with this thing before I swap it .
I mean , I guess you guys might already know from the title , but it's for another Porsche .
I'm a little sleepy , so I'm going to wait till my brain is working a little bit better .
And then I'm going to give you a little bit more details on what's going down today .
It's no secret that we are going to pick up none other than a 992 G three .
I'm going to give you guys a little bit brief description if you aren't a huge portion , nerd , what the differences are .
So generations , there's the 991 and the new generation is the 992 .
There's the 9911 which is like first generation 991991.2 , which is the face lift 991 which is what this was .
And then 992 is like a whole new chassis .
With that being said , the main differences between the GT three Rs and the GT three G three Rs is a little bit more of a race car .
Usually ride wider stands wider fenders , big air ducts in front of the rear wheels , more arrow and only available in PDK .
The GT three , a little bit more Team Bound engines are pretty much the same , not having a little bit more comfortable ride , a little bit less lightweight stuff , even though the weight is actually pretty much the same as this car from this generation .
But the key point is they're available in manual .
So we will be getting a manual one and I'll dive more into the whole manual thing .
I don't want to bore you guys , but I did want to make a notes mentally on this car now because I find that this video will probably end up having a bunch of comparisons between this car and that car , this car driving around pretty rigid ride .
I was surprised when I first got it , how rigid it was , like pulling in places that have like a steep angle or whatever would literally lift the wheels .
I don't mind it .
It's a little annoying if I have like a coffee cup in here because the cup holder is not great .
I already have the 992 turbo .
So I know and that's much better infotainment center .
Not bad .
A lot of useless buttons here but no Bluetooth car place .
That's a huge for this thing .
But I love the interior .
I love the little badges and all the car in and the door pulls .
I'm going to miss this interior .
It's really good with the interior on the new car .
I know it's good too .
So if I think of anything else , I'll make note with you guys , but a long drive ahead of us , I don't think you guys will be able to hear this with a camera , but with the R S and the air ducts right behind you , you can hear this like little like squeal like every time you get on the gas because the , and I'm definitely going to miss that because on the G T three S like the air comes in like over the trunk rather than in front of the rear wheel .
We got a tunnel .
So , you know , we're going to have to go from real quiet to really a little bit less quiet .
Oh , there's a cop up there .
Another thing about this car , I don't know if it's going to change with the manual but like Florida highways , we cruise at 90 miles an hour usually .
So this thing cruises at 4000 R PM with an exhaust that can get a bit noisy .
You know , I made my video last time talking about how sentimental this car was .
I talked about all these different reasons why I was going to miss this car .
But I think another thing that was kind of key that a lot of people don't realize is this car was kind of the door that opened me up to the Porsche community .
And by that , I mean , without this car , I wouldn't have been involved with the GT three smokey crew .
Met all the awesome guys from 3 11 .
I know exotics usually have like a bad taste in people's mouths with the owners being snobby and stuff .
And I can assure you guys that GT three owners T D three R s owners the exact opposite .
And the end of the day , these are like bare bones , driver's cars .
And I met so many awesome people , so many friends , so many down to earth dudes that are also really successful in whatever business or job they may have .
It's just a really cool community and I'm glad that I'm not bailing on this thing .
Without another GT car .
The real reason why I'm trading this thing in cup holders .
Not so hot .
All right .
So we're about a half hour away from Porsche Naples to give a little bit of background .
I was doing demos with Vaughn .
I got an Instagram message from a follower by the name of Zach that works at Porsche Naples with a very cool car that they had available .
It's a pain to sample 9 92 GT three .
And it's in one of my favorite specs that I've ever seen from the previous generation .
I had no intention of ever getting a 992 G three thought hadn't even crossed my mind when this car popped up .
I started chatting with them to see if it was a possibility of maybe working something out , trading this car or selling it .
Here we are .
We're here , Porsha of Naples .
Look at that .
Oh , man , there's another orange one .
Let's take that one .
I can't believe this is really happening .
I can't believe you're going through with it .
I know .
This is sad .
Is this the first time I've ever shared a car in the dealer ?
I know , but you've been genuinely sad .
You've been texting me as you've been putting the stock and sauce back on .
Like I was so sad .
I was so sad , but today is an exciting day and I think I'm over the sadness .
Yeah , that's what I want .
I feel like you're always gonna think about owning a manual one and you just need to live this through .
You just need to stop talking about it and do it .
I love the P D K .
The P D K is amazing .
I never wanted the manual in the beginning because this is like the most fun thing in the world .
But I , I've done everything I need to do with it and I feel like having a manual , just bring some excitement to a car that I've already kind of gotten used to , you know , cave man ruining my clip .
They're gonna be revealing it to you .
So you said it's covered up right now ?
You want to see my devil like a bat with a cover on it .
So cool .
When you pull that off , it's a dumb deal .
I think you're gonna pull it off .
I'll put you on the spot .
It's like the beginning of video games and you just like pull it off .
Wait , how do you do this ?
I don't know how to do that .
You got a coach ?
How do you best for this car is to pull from the back ?
So the wing doesn't catch you real fast .
Just don't scratch the , don't scratch the paint to the car .
You got the whole dealership watching you do this right now to be really fast to be drum roll .
Go for it .
I a little slow .
Oh my gosh .
The color is a little different in person .
I like it though .
It's more like Matt .
There's a friend of mine , Chris Meeker who had this exact spec nine oh 1.2 that would drive the spies with us .
And I remember seeing that car and I was so hyped on it .
So when you sent me a photo of this car and it was pretty much identical spec to his .
It was like , yeah , the interior is your , I know .
So the deviated stitching plus the paint sample .
What do you think about the front bumper ?
About what the black ?
Are you gonna , are you digging it in person more or you think you might paint it ?
I don't know .
You know how the uh the touring sound like painted from section .
I was thinking about doing that .
The lightweight .
No , it's identical here .
Look at that .
The We're manual now .
No , I'm excited .
So I've never driven a manual Porsche .
So when I , when I say these things though , people will go and find a video that I'll forget about .
But I don't think I've ever driven one .
A friend of mine .
Uh let me drive his G T four .
That was manual .
We are at Atlanta Motorsports Park , put it in gear , pulled it up , 10 ft on grade and the track got shut down .
And I was always scared , I was always scared to drive though because I knew I'd want one and I didn't want like buyers remorse of getting my R S but I'm excited to have the experience .
Oh , I like the yellow absence .
Um , I don't think I did the yellow tag .
I'm not a big fan of the clock , not a big fan of the color attack , but I am , I'm glad we have it .
So my biggest complaint about the turbo si , don't know if you noticed driving these , the , uh , the steering wheel blocks the gas gate .
It's annoying .
So I drove a Turbo S around the entire state of Florida and I was constantly paranoid .
I was gonna run out of gas .
Show me the track mode comes with ac what is that ?
Your shift is fast .
So there's like an actual shift light for a new car .
There's a lot of error messages going on right now .
So I might have to actually turn it on to do the , just so you guys know the story behind this car .
Uh , so someone ordered it and then bailed on it .
So that's why it's sitting here .
Got it .
Unfortunately he just , uh , decided he wanted a touring instead .
Fortunate for us it's a light clutch bubble .
So there's your sport and then you go into track moon .
I like that and you can adjust actually exactly what you want .
You're track .
Yeah , maybe because the Turbo S is just intended for going fast to the office .
That's why there's no track mode .
So you select track , view change up .
But the screen looks that sick and then you can actually see your fuel gauge , which is nice .
I need to just drive around like that all the time .
So most people do .
So you actually see these bars on the sides of the tack on both sides as you come up towards red line , those will actually light up as like a shift .
So in the past , I'm , I'm gonna be honest with you break in that car that , that I'm trading in .
I , I'm not gonna say it , but I usually don't believe in the whole breaking thing because usually the manufactured breaking engine , whatever .
But you're telling me that this car actually has an idiot mode that won't let you like , it'll change after 1000 miles .
So it just kind of dumbs everything down a little bit .
It still has the full power and all of that .
Um , just when you actually hit 933 miles , it's actually going to change some of the characteristics like throttle response is gonna be a little different .
Um , just little things like that .
It's just basically to keep you from blowing the car up beforehand and I didn't know .
So my last two G three , no , I T BS , this car has ITV S and then a reworked head .
So I'm assuming with an exhaust it will probably feel a little bit faster than that .
Um , it'll probably make a big difference having exhaust on this car .
Um It sounds amazing with exhaust on this engine .
Um Speed stirs have the same engine and when you put exhaust on those , they just scream .
So uh are these speakers gonna be more comparable to what's in the turbo S or is this more comparable to what's in the last Gens R S ?
Because before the G T cars always had really bad stereo systems .
Do you have you have bows or do you have ?
Oh , I have the Burmester .
This is gonna be quite as nice , but this is gonna be a lot better than the 9911 .
I wanna look around .
Ok , thank you .
Have a still have one here and I was wondering so I guess it will be kind of awkward if you have a drink there .
I , I , I like the , that's cool .
Well , thanks .
So does , does the owner also own the dealership that I got her car from ?
Um , it's a partner store .
So we're part of a larger dealer group .
So , Dan , the gentleman you met doesn't have any interest in that store , but his business partner does .
Yeah , cool .
Yeah , I never went to it in person .
Wait , what ?
There's no engine and all you can see is that little door there for the , so the , the ducks in front of the room .
This is where it gets the air from .
It looks like it , it in good shape .
No dealer installed , swirls .
No deal .
That's a very common thing .
You laugh .
732.229 --> 803.51
If you guys get a chance to visit Porsche of Naples , you'll see it here .
I hope it goes to a good home .
But uh I know the look out for me here .
Oh , it'll be just like this one .
People will be looking at it and touching it .
How does it make you feel ?
And they greasy F G F all over it ?
It it a good home and it has another orange friend .
I gotta remember to push the button on this one .
I'll get a ride home .
We're going to be staging for our goodbye photo to the G T three R S gonna line them both up .
Hit our last photo together .
What was it ?
Like clutch pedal is very soft .
It was weird just getting used to pressing in the clutch and stuff .
Got me in my photo .
I'll just move it again .
Hey , before you get out .
What any last words ?
Yeah , this is the last time I'll be going to miss you .
I really hope whoever gets this car stays in touch , it'll be cool to see it once in a while and just know that it's being taken care of .
Please don't install swirl marks .
That's the biggest thing .
If I buy the car back , I really don't want swirls but have fun with it .
The official goodbye , sad but exciting at the same time seeing both cars next to each other , getting appreciate the similarities but also appreciating the differences .
I thought it was going to be a decent step down , going from the R S to GT three .
But I'm excited for the new experience and the car works 10 times better in person .
I saw two of these in person for the first time ever .
And I got to say it sold me in the car a lot more than just seeing photos online because initially I didn't like it and I decided I was going to wait for the RSI thought the wing was weird , but it's come to be one of my favorite parts about the car .
Good together , don't they ?
So ultraviolet and lava are kind of two special colors to me because back when I went on my first ever smokey trip with Matt , it was all the 9911 G D three R that had just come out .
And the two most popular colors were Lava orange and ultraviolet .
Both of them were kind of like the launch colors and were super popular at the time .
Whereas now Lava orange on my car was actually one of the more rare ones because no one wanted it because it was pretty much a launch color of the previous generation and ultraviolet was no longer an option .
And that is why this car is paint a sample .
I think there's , I've seen like maybe like three or four of these online .
So far .
So much , much more rare than this .
But I think there's like 18 of these in the States .
So we'll see how many get built .
But I love it .
I'm excited to drive it and let you guys in on the experience .
The tail lights are so much cooler on the new gin .
I love it .
All right .
Well , we just officially got our new G T three .
We're gonna go over .
We found Craft Sports is right down the road , which is we're timing at 2 70 yard .
So I'm not playing a film there .
I just want to go stop there and look at cars .
I won't make any more bad decisions .
I promise I would love to put my radar here .
But you got a giant clock in the way .
How are you complaining ?
No , I love this car .
I'm still , it feels like there's a really lightweight fly wheel on it .
I don't want to rev it and like maybe like I'm not ignorant , like , you know , just rubbing it .
Car is cool .
I'm not gonna do that .
But anyway , I'll put a on so we won't have that later .
But honestly , yeah , I'm excited .
It's a whole different experience .
I got a manual .
Honestly , since TJ Hunt got an ultra violet car , I just , it's really been my dream to own this car forever since TJ hunt got one .
So that's really the real reason what's going on here .
Honestly , just like so many people would make fun of me for having P D K .
Why did you get a manual ?
And like , I feel like people thought I was like less of a man for not having manual .
So now I got a manual just to appease other people .
It's not for my own personal satisfaction at all .
I'm a man of few words .
I love the lack of buttons .
Oh , an extended range fuel tank .
This thing on the turbo S Turbos is a tiny gas tank .
This thing way bigger .
25 gallons .
That's like more than my diesel pickup truck .
The best thing about these GT cars guys , if you don't know that extended range gas tanks .
The is such a long throw .
It's like a stage seven , no axle lift .
So we have to go all the way around .
Yeah , that was the one , the two things that this car didn't have spec wise since this was someone else's order .
I didn't spec it out .
The two things I would have put for an axle lift and I also put it in a carpet roof .
But other than that , the car is perfect use this clutch , the grabs quite up top .
I wonder if people put like pedal stops in them .
I'm curious to see what the gearing is gonna be like compared to the seven speed because like , it's not gonna be like AAA .
So which way do I go out the back ?
Take a left , out the back ?
So he said go out , take a left then a right , then a right , then a left .
Oh , I do need my seat filters on this .
There we go .
Then a right and a right .
It's so weird .
It's like , like I just feel like seven times manly .
You know , it's a nice short throw .
It reminds me a lot of my I S R shifter and my 2 40 S X .
Love that .
Listen to this ready .
Very , very crisp throttle and fly wheel response .
This is exciting .
This is like a whole new experience .
So I should add my G G 350 was one of my favorite cars to track ever because it's like a kind of like a Porsche power band , right ?
So super engaging on track .
I would choose to drive the G G 3 50 or the G G three R all day .
So now I have the best of both worlds .
I have the G D three R without the perfect P D K and more engaging speed bump .
We're going a different way .
It's crazy how much I need those .
Uh They , they make like a thing that tilts the seat back right now .
I just like sit so far forward .
A yellow clock .
Can I put a little like a little cover over it .
I like it .
I think I'll too .
That's Collette's clock .
If you guys ever comment about it in the video , that's Collette's clock .
Yeah , I need to put a , like a , I feel like a stop halfway down on the clutch just because it's such a long throw but then it grabs up top .
Yeah , I don't like that .
I'm sure they do it for a reason though .
Just slows down your shift because you got , you know , my left leg is gotta go for .
That's what I just uh I think it does in certain modes .
I like them .
So like , I'm not a big fan of the automated blips because I feel like part of the fun of driving a manual car daily .
Don't get me wrong guys .
Rev match down shifts when you get the perfect crisp .
Like rev , match downshift when you're like passing an ice cream shop with a bunch of a bunch of people outside and you're just like , like people used to ask me in the G D 50 like , yo , does it do that for you because I was that good .
So like , if I can get to that point with this car , it be super hot and like my girlfriend knows that it's me .
So she like , like , even though she's more of like a computer blier , she knows it blier .
I'm a computer blier .
Like I'm like the real blip .
You know , it's ok .
Like , no , it's better but , like , I take pride in my blips .
Yeah , I know .
She wants to punch me right now .
The G T four it's blip with nice .
It's auto blip .
So does it , does it like a car ?
Yeah , we're rolling .
So that , I wish I had a handbrake because I use it so much .
Like , I don't like the one , I wonder if you can , like , use it as a moment switch .
You know what I mean ?
For like a situation like this ?
Yeah , I wonder but it is .
So it's the brakes on but will it release if I start to go ?
So you could probably use that as like a hill stop start .
Also , these cars come factory with flash shifting .
I'm not gonna try it until I confirm how to do it , but that's kind of cool .
No more tuning like my 34 .
That was a weird little lippy you did on me ?
No , I think that was just you releasing it slower because it's so high up and you kind of got it .
Crash sports up here .
It is .
It is .
Oh , that's where I got my TT R S A nibble ready for it .
Ready for it .
How was your boy right there ?
That's how you get the girls with yours .
Tell us , tell us more about how you , that's how I got you .
Girls don't care about blips .
They have no idea that that car is loud .
I can't talk to him while we drive it .
That's what the girls actually think .
Yeah , this is really fun though .
It's got so much torques .
It's way smoother to drive it .
I love it .
It reminds me a lot of my vtech Honda that my dad owns .
Look , words blip as are all up .
So , no , this is sick .
All right .
No more cars .
We're gonna to look .
Hey , before we go in and look at me and look at everyone , we're gonna behave , we're not to have any cars .
This is , this is the car of the day .
This is the car we're gonna go look and the good thing is he's hungry right now .
So he's not gonna last that long in there because you have to , that's what she said .
All right .
I'm like literally car shopping for Tommy right now .
Put back on the screen , put Tommy back on the screen .
We think it's pretty cool .
They told me they were getting it .
It's a lot of money .
I wanna say no .
All right .
This marks the official first fill up with the car and I got to say there's absolutely zero part of me that has any sort of remorse whatsoever .
I love this thing .
I'm very happy with the move .
I don't miss the R S at all .
Right now .
A couple of things I've noticed , but before I get into that , I want to tell you kind of another little crucial piece of me getting this car that I didn't mention .
So when I first found out about this car , I was with Von .
We went out to go do a demo .
I get back and one of you guys had given the RT R team a hot wheel for me , the exact place I was having a conversation about if I should trade for this car or not with Vaugh , this hot wheel was laying on the table when I got back .
If that wasn't the universe telling me that this car wasn't assigned .
I don't know what it was and I got to say it was what pushed me over the edge to consider it a little bit more .
I didn't get a car because of a hot wheel , but it gave me a little bit more of an incentive to think .
Oh , maybe I should consider it .
So I don't know who you are , but thank you and know that you are a huge reason why I wound up making this move .
What's going on over there ?
Uh I got the messiest foods using Adam's words .
I picked out the messiest foods .
I could possibly pick out the gas station to eat , but you know what a girls not to eat .
So we won't talk about it .
Starting off with the boring about 200 miles on the car .
I know this is like a super common thing at old 9 92 .
People say the front end feels so good .
It is a lot more comfortable as well .
It's not as bumpy , not as rigid , only negative I've noticed with this car in particular , so far as the swan neck wing because it's a little bit lower than the R S , it finds itself to be right in my center of visibility in the mirror .
So I can't see cars when they're behind me because of where it lands .
Other than that though , pretty much zero complaints .
This thing's rad .
I know a lot of people always wondered why I had no interest in a GT two RSI .
Feel like it's kind of like the same reason why I was kind of getting bored .
The GT three RSI get to a point where a car on the road is just too fast to have , you need to drive it at its absolute limit .
And the GT two R S is like a three wheel drive version of my turbo s .
There's pretty much nowhere that I would enjoy that car more than I enjoy the turbo s and it's just super expensive , mind bogglingly fast .
I'm moving to a manual to actually make my driving a little bit less fast .
So I feel like it will be more enjoyable in the mountains as opposed to the GT three R s with P D K , you can carry a lot more speed three corners where this is more , enjoy the experience .
One other thing I've noticed with this car , the brakes are a lot more sensitive in a positive manner .
My G G three RSI would often get in after driving like my Evo or another car and I would under brake into corners because you have to actually lay into them where that's good because it's a very linear braking feel .
This is a lot easier to drive around without having to really pour into the pedal .
Now , I've been abiding by the break in so I haven't really read this thing out , but I can say the drive , it feels like it has a lot more torque , use the right lane to merge onto state road 5 78 .
I haven't rubbed it over seven grand yet , but like just driving around , it feels very zippy .
It actually feels like a bigger engine than the G Three arrests .
That's like six grand .
It's a decent amount to go .
This will be the first to I've ever taken shut out Florida .
The shifting is really fun .
The gearing is phenomenal .
I've noticed that it actually seems like it's geared a little bit longer than the G G three .
And by that , I mean , at four grand instead of doing 90 before we're doing more like 95 .
Not that I've gone that fast , but that's good because that was always annoying because the G G three like me , this is a little bit less about 200 miles and I've been enjoying the crap out of this .
Yes , this is uh this is a situation .
Put it right here .
All right .
Everything else about this car is fantastic though .
I feel like my job , my passion , my purpose in life is to build these cars that are my idea of perfect Porsche is like just the cheat code .
You basically just buy the most perfect car with the best feeling clutch .
The best feeling shifter , the best sounding feeling engine , the best sounding chassis , the best feeling chassis .
It's literally if you are given all the money in the world and someone asks you to build a perfect car .
In my opinion , I'll be a GT three .
Now's opinion differs .
This message is not produced to you by Porsche .
This is coming from straight from my mouth .
These cars are cheater cars .
They are if you care about driving , if you care about , if you like appreciate cars for whether it's look sound , feel it takes every box all the time in being able to track this car for hours and not have it overheat and have the car not skip a beat and not have to do any maintenance .
They took every single request that any car person has ever had in their life and they were like , there's the G T three my first time in a car without tin in Florida in a long time and I was on the fence because I want to get through the whole fish bowl .
Look so you can see the cage when I do it .
But man , that's bright .
Maybe I'll do a slightly less dark 10 or maybe just U V 10 .
We got about 250 miles on the car , depending on whose breaking procedure you follow .
I know a lot of people that start ripping on their car once they break 250 miles .
I think the Factor manual says 1000 .
Maybe we'll give her a little more R PM and see how she likes it .
But I think I'm going to just slowly just raise it , you know , 500 R PM or so , every couple of 100 miles and see what it feels like .
8000 , I would say stock for stock .
This thing definitely has a better sound than the G G three Rs at lower R PM at higher R PM .
I think the G G three starts to scream a little bit more .
It feels so smooth on this road .
Best daily ever .
This thing feels really good .
How does it feel as a passenger ?
It feels a lot more comfortable and not as stiff , not as race car on high .
I'm very happy with my decision .
All right guys .
So I officially made home with my first ever G T three and it looks great in the garage .
I'm excited to play with this car .
Uh I am very , very happy with my decision .
I hope you guys are excited for it .
It's a very , very big change from the R S in the best way as possible .
Uh What you guys can come to expect with this car .
Actually , this week we've got some back to back content .
So tomorrow I've got a special video that I uploaded a while back that's going to go up and then Wednesday for all of you guys that aren't members on the channel and didn't get access to the L Z Invitational live stream .
I'm going to be re uploading the entire stream so everyone can see it's really cool and I want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to see it .
Even if you don't want to spend $10 to become a member .
I'm hoping the video after that on Thursday , I'll have an exhaust on this thing already so we can hear this thing start to make some true portion noises .
And then right after that , I got to ship it out over to Billy over in Tampa at Presidential where he'll give you the treatment and then I will get clear broad over at auto paint card .
And the guys , honestly , I'm not gonna lie with the outlook knowing that I'm gonna trade this car and kind of like get into the RSI asked myself like , do I want to still clear bra and spend all that money to do all that ?
And even though I know that it's not forever going to be my car , I still just , it's just the right thing to do not doing it .
I would just feel so scared driving the car where , you know , it gives you a little bit of confidence to tailgate Karen when she's going 20 miles an hour and a 25 you know .
Well , yeah , I hope you guys enjoyed this video .
It was a lot of fun .

We're not to have any cars .
This is , this is the car of the day , this is the car we're gonna go .
