lol ... one man's meat ... another man's poison ... feel will vary marginally from car to car ... just like one engine will put out slightly different figures from another ... maybe AutoCar are pro Porsche ... maybe AutoExpress are pro Audi ... who knows ...Interesting to note that Autocar found the steering a bit dull compared to the 911 but that Autoexpress found it pin sharp...
Much prefere the AutoExpress write up and the photographer was a little more imaginative. I think that Autocar was very conservative and boring - probably still suffering from the hospiatlity from the night beforePleasure, guys!
It reads to me like the writer's being a bit half-hearted in his praise though. He likes it ok, but it's not powerful enough, not fast enough, steering not feelsome enough, too many of them being made (!), not practical enough, not spacious enough, blah blah blah.
Be interesting to see what Car & Evo make of it in a few days' time.
I'll be shot down for this I'm sure ... but regardless of what they do to the 911 ... it's still a 911 and dare I say it ... as common as muck ... one of the beautiful things about the R8 is ... it will never be as numerous as the 911 ... therefore it will always be more exclusive than a 911 ... and therefore in many peoples opinion ... mine included ... more desirable ... give me an R8 over a 911 everyday.I find the appearance of the 911 rather dull and old fashioned
