Porsche 911 GT3 PDK Doing Donuts in Slow Motion Is So Cute, but Wrong

As always, we take great pleasure in offering answers to questions nobody asked. So, before anybody comes to wonder about how the title above came to be, allow us to explain that.
We're all Zuffenhausen aficionados here, so when we see a current-generation 911 GT3 being used to bake donuts, we have plenty of reasons to enjoy the action.

First of all, the sheer idea of somebody using the perfect handling balance of the track-savvy 911 for such shenanigans is enough to generate giggles.

Then there's the soundtrack the 4.0-liter flat-six generates when bouncing off its limiter, which is nothing short of music to our ears.

As for the final part of the title, well, there are two main reasons for which we'd prefer to see a 911 GT3 burning rubber in a more elaborate fashion.

First of all, the rocks on the road threaten to chip the pain, and while such details can be corrected just by visiting a shop, cleaning the area beforehand would be a much simpler way of dealing with this.

More importantly, since the GT3 packs such an elaborate chassis, mixing the traditional Porsche balance with four-wheel steering, we'd love to see the hardware being used for more spectacular moves. You know, stuff like drifting.

And while not everybody has a track at hand, drifting in a wide "circle" would've easily been possible in the location where this footage was captured.

Yes, we know we're playing the nitpicker card here, but after all, German engineers working on the Neunelfer have been doing it for over five decades and we don't think they plan to change their ways too soon.

P.S.: We've recently brought you a series of Porsche drifting videos, so if you missed them you can check out a 911 GT3 RS vs 911 GT3 sideways comparo, as well as a Cayman GT4 sliding session at the links.
