gets lot of stick in the forums (too boring, too big, ruined by electric steering etc) but it keeps punching above its weight in comparisons.

Seems that the 991 steering is only crap when compared to a previous generation of a 911 or a Lotus. In isolation it is still better than almost anything else currently made (including the F-type).

The std 911 Turbo (the better comparison to the AMG GT-S in my opinion) was nearly 3 seconds faster around Angelsea, and just as much fun when mucking about.

If this is the "weakest 911 generation" as many suggest, god help the opposition if Porsche gets the next one right!

To own...To drive on the road...To look at...To listen to. The AMG is the better car. Not many owners will be going sideways on the road or soaking up the technical feel of both cars and comparing them. The Porsche owner will buy the Porsche and be very happy the AMG owner likewise. Only in comparison tests will there be a winner based on the person doing the comparison. New AMG GT or 40 years of honed perfection? I will take a 991 Turbo S and the New AMG GTS Roadster when that gets here thankyou ( and it will ).

Both comments above are correct. The AMG GT does not compete against any Carerra, they are completely different cars with different purposes. The AMG has way too big a torque advantage, far more luxury oriented interior, and GT layout. The correct comparison here is a Porsche Turbo. And that makes the AMG quite a bargain, after going through Porsche's options list you'd end up with a Turbo that is significantly more expensive than the GT S. As much as I love Porsche I'd have a hard time buying a Turbo over the AMG, I think its brilliant.

I'd be happy with either but leaning towards the Porsche. If you think some posters on this website are a bit off you should read the comments on the Youtube posting of this video.

I had to go to youtube to watch this, whatever video player the website now uses just goes round and round and round and round...
