Default Has the Porsche 911 become a Grand Touring car instead of a sports car?

Bros, given how the 991 is more refined, arguably less engaging car than the 997, has it actually become more of a Grand Tourer? Now certainly few would argue that the 997 GT3 isn't a true sports car. Thoughts? Bro?

It's definitely become less engaging bro, but it's still a very light car in the right specs, bro.

Bros, no manual gear box = not a true sports car brah!
