    500hp. 8.3cm longer. Rear engine moved forward a smidge. Lower CG. Predictable handling. More Downforce. Less drag. Sequential dog box. Fully gutted/caged to the max. Lighter. All the cool racing bits, none of the luxury/fluff. Lots of win. All for a cool Half Million.
    I think I am in love. IMO. Best looking and spec'd Porsche a mortal can buy, hands down.

    Sigh.... so out of reach. Even if I could afford it I'd never dare drive it anywhere close to what this car is capable of.

    Mark, you are looking at it all wrong. Be a multi-time national champion, get recognized, then get picked up. Invited to come do a test day with a Team needing a driver who so happens to have the latest/greatest Porsche Race Cars. Run with them in the ALMS, WEC, IMSA GT3 Cup, Supercup Series, Blancpain Series, FIA GT3 Series, etc.

    It's frustrating that this is true. When was the last time an NFL player had to buy-in to be on a team? If pro racing had half the budgets of the popular national-level "sports" it would be a different world.

    They'd call it racist, if NFL players had to pay to play.

    I jest. Market forces are probably to blame. The ratio of popularity-to-cost of racing means it's not profitable to be a team.

    Unless you're in NASCAR, which is the NFL of racing.

    I wonder if they would take one of my cast iron testicles as a fair trade?

    The sales tax will exceed the price of many new cars.
