    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I think the era of fast analog cars is slowly but surely going away. The Nissan GT-R was the revelation that heavy cars can be fast too with well calibrated electronics... The 991 turbo proves this too.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I know many folks like the GT2 (and its RS version), but I think it is extremely hard to drive fast and safely.  I would rather see Porsche develop an all wheel drive RS--a GT4RS, or even a Turbo RS.

    I would buy a Turbo RS in a heartbeat.

    For sure, add me to the list SmileySmileySmiley

    I have put a deposit with my dealer on the possible appearance of a 991 GT2 RS.   A Preuninger-developed "Turbo RS" (GT4 RS?) would be a dream car for me as long as it maintained RWS.

    Where are the new owners?

    As much as I try to find on the internet real life pictures or reviews on the new turbos ... so far nothing..... The only review worldwide is RC ... ! I guess he has car #1

    Well... Smiley

    On a more serious note: It came to my attention that many potential customers apparently waited with their order(s), they were skeptical about the Turbo S. Now apparently orders have picked up and I am pretty sure that at some point, we are going to see MUCH more owners and finally some other owner reports too.

    Also, deliveries in the US haven't started yet (soon), so expect  a couple of owner reports to flow in as soon as the first US cars are going to be delivered.

    In my town, two Turbo S have been delivered so far (mine and another customer). The other guy won't write anything for the internet, he actually loves his new Mercedes S-class most ("like a spaceship..."), the new Turbo S is just a weekend toy for him but he isn't really too much into fast driving (I wonder why he ordered the Turbo S then but I guess to each his own Smiley).

    Smiley Yes, the Turbo S Cab would have been nice but I just didn't want to wait, especially since it was rumored for next spring when I ordered the coupe, before they changed the production timeline to december.

    It looks quite nice in reality, doesn't it?  Especially from behind. Smiley

    Why would anyone buy a Turbo S Cabriolet? it is still heavier than the coupe and it amounts to Super-Fast- Emotionless-Open-Air-Transport in a rather common-looking package. If I wanted a porsche open-roof car, I'd go for the Boxster anytime and save 100K quid to buy an Audi R8. Or I chipped in another 30K quid to get a used MP4-12C. Best of both worlds....

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    The answer is simple and understandable if you had ever lived in the NE of America. I will be using the car nearly on a daily basis so need a cab for the summer. 4 wheel drive in the winter and a four seater for my young kids. So given this the TurboS Cab is near perfect!

    It will also compliment my planned garage over the next few years. My BMW 7 Series will be replaced by a Tesla Model S P85+ if they ever produce a 4 wheel drive version. My wife's X5 will be replaced next year by a Range Rover. And if all goes to plan I hope to add a Bentley GTC and Ferrari 458 over the next few years. 

    Also I hate to say it especially since I am British - I would love to buy a McLaren but not one that reminds me of a Toyota MR2! There are a number of them in my area and they really don't look the part even if they can perform the part.

    It is very interesting that the McLaren reminds you of the Toyota MR2, I have certainly never heard that before. I am just wondering what the TTS reminds you of. Anyway, esthetics are relative to the observer.

    Yes, I do but it was your first post and we have lots of trolls lately who apparently try to bash Porsche for whatever reasons. I even suspect some professional bashers, this wouldn't be anything new nowadays and happens very often in the consumer electronics domain.

    I love sports cars but I never seriously considered the R8 or even a Boxster for myself. This is why I was very surprised by your comment.

    She actually has quite a lot in the front but it isn't visible in this photo. Smiley

    On a more serious note: Especially from the rear, the 991 Turbo S looks amazing and very very special. If someone says that this car doesn't attract attention, he clearly didn't pay attention. I attract more attention with the car than I actually want and my son always complaints that other drivers/passengers of other cars are starring, something I do not always notice because I am driving.
