    The Car Connection Spy Photos

    Link

    I think we've seen these before. The text says 450 hp and 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

    Re: The Car Connection Spy Photos

    Thanks Gary.
    3.7 secs is highly optimistic in my opinion.
    I think it'll be more something like 4.1 or 4.0 secs.
    Fast enough.

    Re: The Car Connection Spy Photos

    Several publications puplished times of 3.9 for the 993 turbo and there were a few similar times (including a 3.8 sec time with a tiptronic 996 turbo from motortrend), so i don't think that 3.7 is out of the question, as long as there are really good conditions to create them in.

    Re: The Car Connection Spy Photos

    The 993 Turbos in a few mags hit 0-60 in 3.7. The 996 Turbos appear to be a tenth or two slower to 60 than the old 993Turbos. Must be a gearing thing.

    0 to 60 mph and 0 to 100 kmh

    Not that standing start times are very significant, we still heavily base our judgement on them.
    Firstly, in which mag did you read that the 993 turbo does 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 secs.
    Condidering the factory quotes 0 to 100 kmh in 4.5 secs, I find it hard to believe, even for the last 450 hp edition.
    Now also,
    100 kmh coresponds to 62 mph, some manufacturers quote up to almost half a second between the 0 to 60 and the 0 to 62! Don't you find that a bit over rated guys? I mean, that's only 3 kmh!

    Not if they change the gearing.

    The only logical expanation would be shifting a gear in that 2mph window between 60mph and 62mph(or 100kmh).

    Re: 0 to 60 mph and 0 to 100 kmh

    I think .1 to .3 seconds difference is typical. Of course if the car is slow, then it takes longer...

    Re: 0 to 60 mph and 0 to 100 kmh

    Stock 993 Turbos are very quick. Its not speculation but fact that several Mags got times of 3.7 seconds to 60mph. Just a couple I found without diving into the library, Car and driver 7/95 issue (96 turbo 3.7 with 12.3 1/4 mile time). Autoweek in 95 also hit 3.7 0-60. Car and driver in 1997 timed a U.S spec Turbo S(424HP) at 3.7 12.2 1/4 mile. I believe R&T did a test that timed a Turbo S and a 959. The Turbo S (U.S spec) got a 3.6 0-60. The 993 Turbos are a .1 0r .2 of a second quicker to 60 than the stock 996 Turbo. My guess is the gears are the factor.
