Was looking through an old Autocar in which they have a test of both the 7 extreme and a 996 GT2 vs. Tuscan S.

Interseting reading the acceleration times: taking 50-70mph for example which is pretty good measure of real world midrange performance, the 340bhp EVO is actually quicker than the GT2 by a few tenths in 2nd and 3rd and even more quicker than the Tuscans times. Some of it may be to do with gearing as the GT2 and Tuscan S will go on to approach 200mph but its an interseting observation... especially as teh GT2 is one serious monster of a car with I think 450bhp.

I can confirm the performance against a Tuscan S, or at least the one that my M8 owned until last week. I think he sold it because I was quicker :D

Ok, lets tell the whole truth. He could get it off the line far quicker than I could. However, once driving allong normally, so long as I was in the optimum gear, he could not stay with me. If I was in the wrong gear, he got a head start that I could not get back. We never played at real high speed so I cannot comment on what happens there.

I think in most situations I would favour the GT2, but the 7 Extreme on back roads (as the GT2 has tricky traction).
