    how is the sound (of the car, not of the radio:::))))?


    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    So, I presume the current fastest car is a C4GTS in silver? With 2 car seats in the back?

    pmarkow:

    how is the sound (of the car, not of the radio:::))))?

    I wanted to write up a detailed review and post better pics, once I actually get time to drive it more Smiley 

    The interior cabin sound is very nice. The exhaust note has that characteristic flat-six howl. A proper howl. More so than the 991.1 PSE which had a harsher tone. I guess the turbos mute those frequencies. Many magazine reviewers referred to the interior sound as being closer to the air cooled models. While I have limited experience of air cooled Porsches, I can image this being a fitting description. Big thumbs up for the interior sound.

    The exterior cabin sound, with the windows down, is not as loud as the 991.1 PSE. The exhaust note reminds me of my previous 997.1 Turbo with Cargraphic exhaust, but not quite as loud. It does not pop and crackle as much as the 991.1 PSE, even if you still hear those sounds. You can also pick up the turbos spooling, which I think adds to the sound experience. Compared to the GT4, neither of 991.x PSE are close to the loudness and character in the exhaust note. But you all knew I was going to write that Smiley I give a thumbs up for the exterior sound as well, but with the note that it depends what your reference is. A normal Carrera, yes. A GT3, nah.

    I must just add that the engine is an absolute gem. The throttle response is great and the turbo lag is difficult to notice. It pulls very hard from 3'500 RPM up to the 7'500 RPM redline, but more as a normally aspirated engine howl than turbo engine wooosh. Nice job by Porsche! Smiley

    Interesting your impression of the exhaust sound of the 3.0L turbo... Buddy, those twins crying have really done a number on your ears smiley​​​​​

    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    I think Bluelines' report is spot on regarding the sound and the pull of the engine. I have had a 991.2 GTS Cab since late April (to complement my GT3 RS track toy). 

    Driving extensively in the Alps on three separate trips and doing all the major mountain passes, this car with this engine has been just terrific fun, especially with the top down.

    @bluelines:

    Congratulations for the new car. Great choice of colour too Smiley

    It was interesting that you chose option 658 Power Steering Plus. Was this necessary for your driving/parking needs?

    Have you noticed any downside in the "steering feel" department at lower speeds?

    Many happy and safe kilometers!

    I do not think he custom ordered the car, I think he found a good offer and took it. Car is pretty much perfectly optioned in my opinion.

    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    Thank you Gnil !

    Definitely bluelines' 911 is superbly specified.

    However, I would like to know how keen drivers assess the PS Plus option on a 911. Can the system differentiate between a city maneuver and a twisty road hairpin taken at low speed, for example? Is the system speed related or rev related or g force related or all are taken into account?

    The nice thing about PS Plus is that it can be turned off at the dealer, if the driver doesn't like it.  Pretty easy coding with PWIS.  It can even be added to a car that did not have it originally if the dealer cooperates.

    I didn't know that. It is a safe bet then!

    I find it pretty distasteful the Porsche charges extra for an 'option' that is simply a software toggle. These types of things should be zero-cost or just a menu preference in PCM crying

    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    Thank you Reginos and nice to see you back. I can't tell if Power Steering Plus has any downside. I had it on my previous 991.1 C4S too and it did not bother me. This car was already configured with, so no choice. Obviously it is not as sharp as the GT4 steering indecision But the ambient interior light and Burmester sound makes up for the lost steering feel smiley

    There are no photos because I simply had no time driving the car. Next week the twins are off to the grandparents so I am looking forward to a few evening tours after work indecision Then photos will be taken and posted.

    Understand they need to pay the (legal) bills but to me, for a company who trades on engineering excellence, to do it by fleecing customers for different calibration maps is prettty low
