This year was special to Porsche because they finally returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Obviously, it will take some time for Porsche to recover their form after such a long absence.

The 911 has a race car feel and it's a little tinny, but light and quick. In terms of preference, the Porsche and the Ferrari are completely different worlds, and each has its own attributes. The Ferrari (a 550 Maranello) is big, refined and comfortable. It pulls like a D9 Caterpillar (big bulldozer)! It's a perfect blend of comfort and performance–a true gentleman's GT.
