That is the correct view of the facts. Of the 911s from 2011-2019 (991), only the GT3 , R and Turbos are faster (see Wiki). But in the end, that doesn't matter either, because during my trip to Germany, I noticed how many Porsches willingly cleared the fast lane on the autobahn. Out of Respekt or rather curiosity? It doesn't really matter, does it?
