    Re: Sport Auto: 997 S

    I'm surprised about the poor result!
    It scores the same as the BMW M3!!!
    Thanks for the post!

    Gabriel forgets to mention that we already talked about this test and he even participated in the thread.
    Check here: http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=45996&page=&fpart=1&vc=1 .

    Wait for the Sport Auto test on the Nordschleife, it should be available in one of the next issues.

    Don't be surprised Fanch, I've seen the 996 making 4,9 sec from 0-100 Kph on that same magazine on another issue, sometimes they have the most weird results The 996 3.4L engine made 17,3 Sec to 200Kph it must had a little turbo hiden some where.

    SPORT AUTO is a highly trustable source, they also use the latest equipment for testing and highly skilled test drivers. It was Porsche's "fault" regarding the "good" results but it seems that Sport Auto and Porsche had a discussion about those results in the past and both make sure that the cars they get are completely stock and not "selected".
    Maybe one reason why AMG cars don't always achieve the same performance figures in Sport Auto as they achieve in other tests.
    Right now, Sport Auto is the only source I trust regarding test results on the track because they really put their reputation at stake. Horst von Saurma is highly appreciated by many sportscar enthusiasts and racing teams, they trust him. And he earned this trust because he seems to be honest in his claims. Maybe one reason why Ferrari didn't give him the Enzo for testing yet...

    I really hope you're rigth about my suspicion regarding Sport Auto. I used to trust them very much, but after those weird numbers they posted I started to have my doubts.
    I'm glad to hear that they did care about those results, it shows their professionalism.
