    Re: 991.2 and future models Thread Closed

    I also think most people will like the feeling of the turbo Carrera . These people only buy 911 to have a ' standard' , to gift themselves of a sports car for the hard work they have accomplished . But most of these people will never drive faster with their car ( or maybe 20 km/h more ) then the speed limit . Track is not even a consideration . They will never floor the car and not even rev it more then 5000 .  To all these customers, turbo will feel ' more ' .

    Also that thing about 4S vs carrera S . Most people, young included, think the 4S is THE special 911 and think it is way better and faster then a S . I don't know how many times people have asked me if my car is a 4S and when I say , no , a S, they look very disappointed  mail

    Yeah, but isn't it cool that we HAVE A CHOICE ?!?! Smiley I do like this damned company because for decades they provided / provide me with cars I can take to a track on the weekend and drive to the office with the same car on Monday. So, I am looking very much forward to the new turbo decade ! Smiley

    Correct, my coworker tells me she won't take her Carrera S over 4k rpm.  I told her at that rpm her car has the same horsepower as a Civic, but she does not care.  :D


    Re: 991.2 and future models Thread Closed

    I hope the new engine brings the 911 in a lower taxation bracket because of the lower co2 output, thats why many bussiness registered 997's were dumped here in Belgium when the law changed. You don't see as many 991 either.

    Any guesses what the possible Co2 numbers could be with the turbo's?

    " most people " ...wow you must hang out in a car nut dense place ...here in Silicon Vally , with all its Porsche owners and its wealth, these are all just 911s of some sort 

    The best looking one of the bunch,, IMO, is the local black 991 GT3 that is de-winged ...you cant imagine how wicked that car looks without seeing it in person , without the disproportionately attention grabbing wing ...was not an easy thing to do either

    Owner could care less what you think as he is honest that he is not tracking it or driving it over 100 mph if that

    in fact how many here in the US admit to never tracking their 991s but very often driving well over 100 mph , for more than one quick burst ,  weaving around traffic the freeway sytem of their home metro area ...come on now .." Step up to the mike " , as it were ..identify yourselves, please !

    Also how many frequently go to a speed of around 200 mph in said public roads in urban parts of US ? Or even a " slow " 150 mph that the 911 Turbo  could do even 30 yrs ago ?  You wont hit any of these speeds at your local weekend racer track unless it is named Daytona  Talledega or Indy .

    guys like this are prob having the most fun ..because they are not cowed by the " correctness " police at gatherings, who oftimes are so obsessed with minutiae that they become cranky condescenders..sad really

    Re: 991.2 and future models Thread Closed

    Why even bother with a GT3 if you have to remove the wing and thus profoundly affect its engineering, it's not like it is the only nice car out there...

    Re: 991.2 and future models Thread Closed

    Haha Sportscargroup, gotta love the quirks of modern times! 

    Tim, no need to feel inferior because of the Boxey, they're awesome cars and it takes a very intelligent and  masculine person to properly appreciate it. I think Dr. Phil has 10 of them.

    d997h, really? Yes, you definately have to show those, would be interesting to see!
