    Re: OFFICIAL: new 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    Ok, thanks. Think it's a bit strange, but i assume the heritage is the most important factor. Thought that when hybrid tech is introduced in the top model it would be a good time to change the name. Not that it matter that much, but was more curious.

    When someone says "911 Turbo", what is your first thought? Right. Nobody thinks about the current 911 Carrera models.

    A turbo with an emoji icon would help to distinguish between the current turbo and the next turbo w/hybrid tech (992)

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: new 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    They can't change the name - 911 Turbo is so iconic....

    No need for that since the next gen 911 Turbo is rumored to have a more "radical" design than the next 911 Carrera generation. Meaning: Same 911 shape but the Turbo/S will look more special without making it look like third party parts tuned car. Let Porsche surprise you...

    I don't have a clue but the next 911 generation is due end of 2018 or early/mid 2019 as far as I heard.

    Which is why I believe we will see the 992TT & TTS in 20 or 21 timeframe.

    If they tart it up, won't that undermine it's position as the stealth supercar?

    I don't know, good point. All I know is that 911 Turbo customers seem to want more differentiation vs. the Carrera models. Also the interior may get a different look (a bit only).

    Maybe offer them a choice of brake caliper color.

    Nice. A bit darker would look great, more stealth. What colour is this?

    Carlos from Spain:

    What an anti-climax when he floors it inside the tunnels...

    if he is gonna post a driving sound video on the internet incl WOT in a tunnel -in a cab no less-  you'd think he'd open the top and lower the windows before doing so ...esp for the tunnel segment(s) 

    Smiley

    the vid also shows how futile it is to access the full rpm band in today's tall-geared high hp cars ...he is just a second or two in any gear before slamming into traffic that was far ahead before throttle tip in ... Maxda in its newest MX5 Miata has it right in putting a 150 hp engine in a very light 2300 lb , high handling modern sports  car where you can lay WOT to FULL redline in second gear ( 50s mph ) and third gear ( 80s mph ) on winding public roads , over and over again and vs cars like the Turbo where you can't even get to redline in second gear over the same patch of road under the  same traffic / pedestrians/ cyclists  circumstances

    Make no mistake, I heard from various people who drove the new Turbo S that the sound is basically the same, absolutely nothing has been changed or improved. Performance however is amazing, not only straight line but also the various chassis tweaks.

    Amazing! For the base version...


    Re: OFFICIAL: new 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    I wanted to post same test.kiss

    So, basically new 991.2 Turbo is at least as fast as 991.1 Turbo S in straight line. Excellent results IMO.

    great performance for Turbo. Hope to see Turbo S tests soon, interesting to see its real-life time conapring to 991.2 TT and 991.1 TTS

    Depends if you can live with a low-torque engine (in case of the R or RS) or not...

    wantone:

    Why? The only thing I didn't like was the boring sound, which made it difficult to really enjoy the car as a weekend toy.

    As a daily driver, the 991 Turbo S would be unbeatable. No wonder they sell so many...
