    Re: X51 for 991S ready...

    I saw the special edition Club model with X51 at the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen last Saturday, nice car and even if I don't like the color, it looks special indeed. I will post photos along the week, I don't have them in my office right now.

    Re the X51, if 997/2 history is anything to go by, would it not be better to wait awhile for the GTS version to turn up? Smiley

    Re: X51 for 991S ready...

    There was no 997.1 GTS so the wait might be a very long one... Depends on what Porsche wants to do this time...

     Is it??? I cant see it.... Smiley

    What is PDLS in black? How can dymanic lights be in black - surely thats not going to light up the road very well? Smiley

    You have to look for it...

    the dark green one right? Was the beautiful 993TT still next to it Smiley

    Grant:

    Don't expect better low-end torque.  The Carrera S already has a variable intake tract to make max torque across the rev range (started 17 years ago in the 993 Varioram).

    I expect better low end torque and better high end power from the X51 package. The whole point of the X51 intake system with the 6 switchable valves is to better handle the transition between different power and torque-optimised geometries. As you point out, VarioRam was once introduced to solve this transition, but had a different design using a second throttle body and a second plenum. Since then it has evolved into the more efficient X51 intake system with 6 valves. By the way, VarioRam was introduced 20 years ago on the 964 RS Smiley

    Below is the torque and power curves for the 997.2 X51 package (solid lines) compared to the Carrera S (dotted lines). More low end torque and more high end power. Voila!

    I ask again: how about the torque curve of the new 991 X51 option? No one has the info?

    Re: X51 for 991S ready...

    No, still have not seen the torque curve anywhere yes

    Re: X51 for 991S ready...

    According to the configurator RC showed  - if you order the 20mm sport suspension and the PDCC seperatly you can save $1 (Euro)!  I would not pass that up...
