Yeah the newer WRX are a much, much nicer car to drive on the street. Even when they went from the EJ20-EJ25 engine on the GD series cars it made a huge difference to stock drive ability.I haven't tried the GC8, it looks like a fun car to drive around the track where you always keep the rev high anyway. The WRX is my daily commute car, for me to have a little bit of fun on the street during my long commute. The twin scroll turbo gives it a nice early torque, which makes it pretty fun to drive on the street. The last fun car I owned was a 2001 B5 S4, which I took to the track a few times. Even with a bigger rear anti-sway bar, its heavy nose still keeps it understeer pretty badly. Compare to that, the understeering of the WRX doesn't feel that bad at all to me, at least on the street (may be I have to drive it harder . I think if I were to go back to the track though, I probably would take an old Miata or S2000 (and if I have the means, an old 911).
A former coworker of mine has a 991 GTS PDK with sports chrono... I took it for a spin one time and it was a blast to drive.True that.
Somehow I can't drive a 5 gauge Porsche w/o sports chrono
He has clearly made some good choices in life to be in a position behind the wheel of that car, but some of his worst choices were that watch in two tone, wearing it on the wrong wrist, and wearing it so loose that it can spin around.It's some lucky owner driving one of the 100 McLaren F1's left in the world. Taken at one of their owner's club rallies a few years ago. $20M car, give or take. And a Yachtmaster II.
You don’t see many of those even when they were built back then. Cool to see a good example of one.
