    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo/Turbo S Cabriolet (2013)

    At least in Germany you immediately loose the guarantee if you mount an OEM exhaust. Would not be an option for me with a 200k car. Even Porsches can have sudden engines failures. My red 991 had a massive engine fail at 15.000km and got a new engine for free. Imagine that with a turbo with an OEM exhaust.  Brrrrr...

    It is quite difficult for Porsche to prove you had a different exhaust IF the exhaust is removed before the repairs/diagnosis starts. This only works if your Porsche dealer actually installed the exhaust.

    A huge problem can arise if your car breaks down far away from your dealer and next to another Porsche dealership. I would actually use the ADAC and tow the car home to my own dealership. Just as a hint... Or I would talk to that specific dealer about the exhaust and hope that he is understanding (wouldn't be 100% sure about this though).

    I would also use only high quality exhaust systems...just in case, so Porsche has no arguments when it comes to a lawsuit (they usually have to prove that the damage has been directly caused or "influenced" by the exhaust).

    Speaking of McLaren and a sport exhaust on a turbo charged car: Since McLaren is a small manufacturer, they have more lenience regarding sound levels and legal certification. Porsche unfortunately does not.

    Back to topic: My dealer just told me yesterday that he has a production slot for a december 2013 production of a 991 Turbo S, which surprised him too. So the cars are definitely rolling in in december (Germany).

    RC,

    are you getting a turbo cab ?

    RC,

    Nope. Never wanted one because it weights 70kg more than the Coupe and I'm no Cab aficionado anyway. Smiley

    Also, my car (991 Turbo S Coupe) is already in production, it exits production tomorrow and (hopefully) arrives at the dealership next week, for a Saturday Oct. 5th pickup. My son celebrates his birthday on that day (he had his birthday earlier but since school started, his friends didn't have time, so we had to postpone the birthday party) and he couldn't be more happy. We are going to pick up the car at 10 am and at 11 am, we are driving to his birthday party at a local cart racing center.

    Well...my son has always been lucky. He almost died four or five times in various accidents (not with the car though), he always got out of them alive and sometimes even without bruises. Example: During our trip to Spain, he accidentally (a woman on a bicycle cut him) lost control of his electric roller and went straight through two lanes of a major street to the other side of the street and stopped there unharmed. Traffic was dense, speeds around 40-50 kph but when it happened...no cars at all. Also no parked car there where he stopped...on a street FULL of cars. The special lane for bicycles is directly next to the street and it is very narrow, stupid people who executed the project. A local Spaniard told us that almost every week, an accident happens with kids and bicycles. Unbelievable. Just an example. Next time he may not be that lucky but I just hope that his luck never runs out. Smiley

    To make it short: He really wants the day to be perfect and I am going to make sure that it is going to be perfect. Smiley

    RC:

    Top speed is the same, which could confirm that both are actually speed limited to 318 kph.

     

    They've been limiting speeds for some time now.

    The 997 GT2 went 204mph with worse aerodynamics than either the 991 Turbo or Turbo S, so I always thought it odd that both versions of the 991 Turbo wouldn't break 200mph.

    I suspect they save the 200mph+ for the 'special cars'.

    Look at GT3s, they started with 360hp and went 302kph. Then with 475bhp a 991 GT3 only goes 313kph.

    All Porsche top speeds are 'managed' to ensure a nice orderly progession through time.

    As Sir Mix-a-Lot put it in "Baby Got Back" in 1992 indecision

    "I like big butts and I can not lie

    You other brothers can't deny

    That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist

    And a round thing in your face

    You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough"

     

    Great looking car! kiss Love those hips!

    You guys are killing me.  My TTS won't get here until May. And I still have until late March before I get my 6-core Mac Pro.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo/Turbo S Cabriolet (2013)

    waiting is painful but it is well worth the wait...well TTS yes. Won't know about my Mac Pro since it's still copying over all my data....only 7 more hours to go.... 8-10inch of snow tomorrow so I hope it's done by then to look at all my TTS pictures in 4K
