This was the most popular super car in 2017

Published 2017-12-23 by Administrator
At the end of each season, me and Bjorn always spend some time looking at all the stats from the year. We make Glögg (Glühwein) in the office while we analyse excel sheets, count cars, hotel nights and eat pepparkakor (ginger bread cookies).

Count cars? Yes. It is actually a lot of fun. What super car was the most popular in 2017?


In 2015 and 16, the most popular car was Ferrari 458.

Is Ferrari still the most popular car in 2017?



No, it is not. Here is why: In total, 638 cars joined us in 2017. That is 55 more than the previous year (where 583 cars joined). These are the most popular cars:  





1. Porsche 991 GT3 RS
. This is the most popular car on our events. We had over 50 of those attending - mostly to our events on the Nurburgring and Spa.

2. Ferrari 458 (all versions) with 46 cars. The most important Ferrari events of the year was Gran Turismo Polonia and Gran Turismo Europa. These are the events with most "Ferrari/Other car"-ratio.

3. Porsche 991 GT3 (No RS) For number three we have Porsche (again). With 30 cars attending the Porsche 991 GT3 (non RS) takes home the third place.

Fun fact: The fourth place goes to Ford Mustang with 27 cars. This number surprised us. I almost choked on a gingerbread cookie. Then Björn remembered that we had rented 27 Ford Mustangs for Gran Turismo California.


Whats up with the Ferrari 458?

The number of Ferrari 458 (all versions) was actually less in 2017 than in 2016. A lot of the 458 owners switched to 488 or Lamborghini Huracan for 2017. That is the reason Ferrari lost the first place. Combining 458 and 488 makes Ferrari number one. However, then you can go ahead and combine GT3 and GT3 RS and Porsche is (way) on top again.

Well done Porsche! You have the most popular car on our events in 2017. The GT3 (RS/non RS) seems to be the track weapon of choice.


Total number of hotel nights used this year: 2705


Another interesting statistic we track is the number of hotel nights we use for the events. The total number of hotel nights used this year was 2705. In 2016, this number was 2512.



The most expensive hotel night in 2017? By far in Paris, George V, for Gran Turismo Europa. A staggering 1490 EUR per room and night excluding breakfast and parking. The dinner the same night was 239 EUR per person. Imagine the total bill when checking out.


Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year! Hope to see you in 2018
