Very entertaining, and some crazy driving.... smiling smiley

He won't have that GT4 for long. He drives like he is trying to set a lap record. Hard to do when there are a lot of other inexperienced drivers on the track.
He takes a very weird line when coming into a tight turn.
He’ll run out of track if he keeps doing that.
Shame; such a nice car!
Happy Boxstering

He's darn lucky that thing can brake. The first turn he almost rearended that white Miata.

Is it normal for manual transmission cars to have a gear selection indicator in the console?
Yes. 981's all have it for both manual and PDK.

1. This certainly drops my interest in ever doing a lap at the ‘Ring with all the traffic
2. The Lambo driver is an ass. He should have moved over. Oh well, he owns a Lambo!
3. I like the way the cars being passed signaled where they were going - mostly keeping right. Seems like a good idea and would be useful at DE’s as it allows drivers to keep hands on the wheel.

Perhaps I can help you with #2.

Watch the video again. The Lambo has superior acceleration in the straights. But the GT4 catches him in the corners. Realzing this, the Lambo driver, at 4:40, moved to the right to allow the driver in the GT4 to pass. Rather than accepting the offer, the GT4 driver chose to spin his right hand as a demonstration of impatience? superior driving skills? a tiny appendage? Who knows. In any event the GT4 driver preferred to ride the ass of your so-called 'ass'.

He even says as much in the caption to the video:

"First time I've seen a Performante so couldn't resist having a closer look! Thanks to the driver for offering me multiple times to pass, however I wanted to keep his cool car in the picture so apologies for staying close! "

Not the other driver's fault at all.
