    Re: 550HP turbo....holy cow

    Hey why stop at 550 HP.

    PS. I thought the GT3 rear wing was huge. This rear wing is huge......

    Re: 550HP turbo....holy cow

    Alain Decadenet claims 600HP per ton is the perfect HP/weight ratio for a road car.

    I'll stick to that. Can't wait to eventually get there somehow. Hope I "live" long enough to see it in "affordable" performance cars.


    Re: 550HP turbo....holy cow

    The wing is UGLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY......... IMHO

    The wing has to go, and I am not crazy about the exhaust either. The rest is beautiful

    Porsche should GET THE WING MESSAGE.

    Design the wing so the owner can remove it and by doing so have some conditions in the PCM software that he's gotta agree to (like what's already in the nav system) that sez something like he won't do over 140 mph since the aerodynamics are supposedly compromised.

    Maybe they should just get the freeking message and put retractible wings on ALL cars that would work for the particular car.

    Jeez: do wings reeeeally sell these cars? The 997TT wing makes me shy away from my plans to buy one.



    stuuuuuuupid things! The fact that they are so heavily stylized is the joke!

    If they were purely functional they'd be perfect for track use and would work better (make the car even "safer"). A squarish, airplane-ish wing will do a better job.


    They should take a poll and find out how many new owners are "thrilled" that their new high-perf P-car has a freak-a-zoid wing appendage glued to its a**.


    Sorry, rant over... .

    Re: 550HP turbo....holy cow

    Holy ..., they stole the wing from a 1981 935 or Kremer K2... what the heck...
