    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    I can recommend the Corsas in Rain the grip level is quite high, no aquaplaning at reasonable speeds 120-130km/h through puddles but i drove carefully and didnt try to reach the grip limit in turns. Shure you arent any faster than a Boxster GTS in Rain that is clear.


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    in dry cold weather 3-10 °C the grip level is quite good and better imho than on CUP2s.

    with warmer temperatures its the opposite and I for shure will switch to CUP2s after the Corsas are done.

    I like my Corsas a lot but they get a little bit noisy at speeds over 300 kph, so I decided to keep my speed below 270 kph, I do not drive much on the Autobahn anyway and enjoy the better grip with the lower tire pressure instead.

    Under 10°C they suck, they loose grip fast and instantly, you need to be careful.

    In rain, traction is insane anyway with my AWD Smiley, nobody can follow me in rain, not even the Aventador (I guess the Performante has a better AWD setup in Corsa mode than the Aventador) but I usually keep it slow in rain on public roads because I once drove in rain through a forest at around 80(!) kph "only" through a narrow curve, it was in my Porsche 997 Carrera GTS Cab and the car suddenly started sliding, there was oil on the road. How I knew? Around two hundred meters further, there was a turned over car in the forest, the passengers were lucky, no trees, so just a few bruises and broken ribs from the seatbelts. Real death trap...rain and oil. I have to admit that I don't have a clue how I "saved" the car, I was basically sliding through the curve, it was pure instinct. Better to be safe than sorry, so I keep it slower in rain since that time.

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Great car and report.

    We stayed two years ago at this round hotel next to dem Dam - very, very quiet up there in the nights.

    It´s not far away from Porsche´s roots at Gmünd where the Pfeifhofer Museum is located.

    I miss Austria when you post these. I grew up in Hinterbruel, in case you know of it.

    I hope they repair (repaired?) the roads meanwhile because last time (two years ago or so), some of the roads were in some parts really in a bad shape (for low and very stiff sports cars).

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Looking fantastic !! Some of your pictures really highlight the rear half of the car and the muscular and defined hips this thing has! It’s my favorite proportion in the car.

    You have a Schloss too!  I grew up playing in the burg Liechtenstein and attended Gymnasium in Moedling. Left in ‘74. Great childhood.
