    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    I used Sport plus but retracted the aero. As far as this being comparable to mags , I am using a 20hz Vbox data logger on a dead flat non prepped road ( so using a higher fidelity instrument than most mags that  use a 10 hz on a known slope surface ) . I live on the coast so being at sea level certainly helps my air conditions be optimal.  Bottom line is on flat road, on 93 octane  , the .2 did 0-293 km/hr in 22.x seconds and has consistently trapped in 1/2 mile events close to 8 mph more than .1 'S (158-160 vs 150-52)  . IT IS faster than a .1 stock by a large margin up top , at least US cars lol . 

    Very interesting Smiley BTW, I wish you had not stopped at 293kph but at 300kph Smiley Would be interesting to have your figure for this as well. My 991.2 turbo s cabrio does 0-300 in about 28-29s. The coupe should be a bit quicker even, your number up to 293 suggest that as well.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    Overall one can probably say that the 991.2 turbo/turbo s confirms the old Porsche law that these cars deliver more than promised in real live - and under all circumstances Smiley

    Markus, we should meet sometime in spring/summer and do a comparison. Smiley

    The 991.2 Turbo S engine doesn't deliver more than 600 hp, this is it's "natural" power end.

    Porsche improved thermodynamics and did a few tweaks here and there but there is a reason this engine won't make it past the 991.2 Turbo S. Smiley

    I have not seen this color before. Not too bad.

    It concerns me that he's driving this way on a public road and having his friends make a YouTube video of it. Really best if it were done in a safer setting.

    I agree. Inexcusable. BTW, that can't be the stock exhaust.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    Well that 911 is yet another small step in the right direction... That craftsmanship, GT3 engine, rear seats and chop the roof, they might have a winner angry


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    Meh, but as was expected.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    did you seen this? Porsche Turbo S LE

    screenshot_587.jpg


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    Personally, I don't like the color and the design Smiley

    Also, if I could, I would recommend Porsche NOT to do any "special editions" with power upgrades. Otherwise they might end up where Lambo is: A new model every 6 months and finally loss of customers due to a felt a lack of stability in their model strategy Smiley I think this special edition is a bad idea. And ugly Smiley



    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    I like it kiss It looks rather cool . I like the new ideas with the rims and the brake calipers .  Not sure I would cope being seen in one, but I di find the car to look special and the general package has a nice ' personality '

    Yes, it isn't the usual end of series LE and really looks cool. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    It looks like a TechArt car to me. angry Perhaps another color and no stripes may save it.

    Price in Germany is 259.992,00€ with Mwst.

    Other exterior colors are available as well.

    Stripes are actually visible CF. Front hood, roof and rear hood are from CF which is then painted(not fully since the stripes).

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo and Turbo S

    Would you really like to drive around in a GOLDEN 911 Turbo S? heart

    Otherwise, I like this SE, though it's just a part bin special of course. I think the interior is nice and the round exhaust tips look so much better than the square ones IMO. They should offer it with inversed colours outside. Black metallic paint with golden stripes would be okay, even the rims would fit nicely.

    EDIT: Just read there are other colours available as well. Good decision! But steep pricing, BTW... Smiley
