I like the Murcielago alot, but in terms of the best qualities, I went for the GT3.

Completely torn between the GT3 and the Turbo...I think its has to be a non-RS GT3...

GT3 RS for me, the Lambo is too garish and the 911 Turbo is not worth the weight and gadgets. The S8 gets honorable mention for third , somehow I love that sedan.

I was very unsure about this one. I ended up with the 997 GT3/RS. As I see it the 997 Turbo is the more complete and accomplished package, more GT-like. But this thread is about sportscars, and the GT3 is the better sportscar of the two.

I also thought about the XKR, finally Jaguar has come around to make a proper sportscar out of the XK, it's really good to see it succeed. It isn't however up to GT3/Turbo standards though...

Argh guys, quit latching onto the phrase "sports car" and just pick what you like. That phrase is only there to differentiate this poll from the other car poll. X.gif

I would've voted for the GT3 anyway, I've been reading up on it, and I like what I'm hearing. I'm sorry I didn't vote for in the track toys category...but whatever...
