2013 looks to be a year of milestones as a good bunch of car companies of “super status” commemorate a special event of their being. Ferrari came out with the wicked LaFerrari to celebrate their 70th year, Lamborghini blossomed at 50 with their Veneno triplets, and Aston Martin marks a century with the same stuff but with a neat looking color, nice fabric, and goody bags to go with their toys. Not to stray far from their “super friends” are the kids from Stuttgart, Porsche.
The 911 has held a classic icon status by retaining most of its’ shape since its’ conception in 1963. Even mere mortals with a small drop of gear oil running through their veins can distinguish a Porsche by merely looking at the silhouette. This year, the company celebrates their 50th birthday by making a better thing better-er, this is the new 991-based 911 GT3.
