    NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    Hey guys, i just scanned the new November article in Car and Driver on the new Carrera S, really a decent article... seems like the usual rederic about the new carrera S, but their test results are apreciated, and WOW did they drive the crap out of it, they obtained a 0-60 of 4.1 seconds... haha and a 12.6 1/4 mile! As well as a measured .97g on the skid pad!

    main??? i think you threw in a "i" there... hehe, no problem i figured everyone would like to see the road test!

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    Thanks for the scan, great read, I have around a week to wait and this upped the anticipation a notch.

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    Thanks Andrew

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    I heard one of the editors is a
    ex-racecar driver.

    Thats why Car and Driver are always
    able to pull numbers far beyond our
    expectations

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    I suppose anyone could do this - with enough experience and training.

    I remember no magazines obtained factory claims on the Corvette Z06. GM sent out instructions how to achieve those numbers...

    The only factor that is not obtainable in those reviews is the stress you put on a car performing those numbers. An automatic-gearbox drivetrain won't be put under similiar stress!

    Guys whats wrong with the attatchment files
    Everytime i click them it asks

    "You have to be logged in to view pictures or download files! "

    Which i am - I signed out and signed back in
    but nothing .. any moderator help on this ?

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    TopherV,
    You are right, guess there is a bug. You can also download the pics by right-click and "save as" on the image.

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    Carlos that dont work either .. Ive tried
    pretty much everything you can

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    As much as I am impressed with and like my 997S, These numbers seem way too optimistic. JMHO.

    Hi Jean,

    You have a PM also.

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    i still dont get how they managed to get 4.1 ...it way too optimistic

    Re: NEW Car and Driver 997 Carrera S - FULL TEST -

    they clutch dropped while holding significant revs... the result was a BIG launch which is why they got a sweet 0-60

    Clutch is wear and tear item, warranty shouldn't be expected to cover it.

    end of clutch... heh or even an axle ( i doubt the 2nd) but yeah they mentioned they wouldnt do a clutch drop to a car they planned on keeping due to a clutch burning out or whatever, although im sure if you only do it 1 time or something it will be fine... not like porsches are drag cars either

    997, does it have an event data recorder on steroids?

    I'm not sure, but doesn't the 997 have the recorder which records and archives all the information?

    My M3 has it, used for warrenty "protection" they know exactly what you did to the car and engine during it's lifetime.
