"The Porsche makes up for lost points through the corners, though, with its spirited drive, super-fast direction changes and superb steering. It’s better than ever, in fact – something that can partially be put down to the fact it’s a genuine sports car."
Just about everything to do with performance and my reason for buying in relation to performance comes down to this statement "The Porsche makes up for lost points through the corners" because well, when you don't have road to hit those high speeds, often you can find twisty roads to still stay somewhat legal and actually have fun.
??? But the Porsche 718 Boxster S won, not the M2. The Porches will win because of their PDK gearbox and lighter weight for faster launches and acceleration. The gap increased by the time they crossed the finish line.
