    997 S: I am not convinced

    I don't know why I don't get excited for the Carrera S. Sure the car has great lap times in comparison to the special Porsche 996 variants but I am having a hard time liking the car. It seems too techno for me. The "regular" Carrera is more interesting for me. I would like to see a review on the car along with lap times in comparison to the 996 Carrera.

    Re: 997 S: I am not convinced

    Easy, buy the "regular" carrera and be done with it. For others the S fits the bill. Choices my friend, choices.

    Re: 997 S: I am not convinced


    I agree. It's really puzzling to me that Porsche would make PASM *standard* on the 997S (note: Europe 997S gets LSD and sports suspension standard). Isn't active suspension something you find on luxury sedans and SUVs?

    I read the 997S has faster lap time than 997 but I wonder if the 997 had sports suspension. Probably not.

    I would get the 997 myself.

    Trust me, you don't want to know the lap times part of the 997Carrera2 compared to the 996Carrera2 ... only 2 seconds faster over a whole 23 mile long 8min+ nurburgring course.

    The reason for all the exitement over the 997S I think is because many people come from a 996 Carrera already and if you are just looking for the "latest" model with a new interior and so on, then the base 997 is a good choice, but these are sportcars and if you are looking any performance improvement whatsoever when you get into a 7-year-evolved "80% new" model, your only choice is the "S" version then.

    pasm is a system that exists on many sportscar ,its not a luxury option ,its a system that improves chassis and overall performance ,ferrari had something similar on the 355,a small button that stiffens the shock absorber , and maserati had the "skyhook "system that did the same.i dont think these two are suv's...
