    Thank you!

    Whatever we say in the form of complaints, Porsche have nailed it with this model. It is a new era 911 and  only at just the beginning of development. The best is yet to come as new systems are honed.

    Cheers to your new car  kiss

    They couldn't give it to the 911 three years in a row. 

    It'll have to be the Macan. Smiley

    @Reginos: Cheers!

    @fritz: That would be something!!!

    But with the GT3, TTS, maybe Macan, C7, BMW 4?, Audi Quattro?? And who knows what else in the competition it will be very interesting to see what car they choose next year. My bet is on the GT3.  Or.... 991 Targa! ;)

    It is an amazing, very professionell made video. I enjoyed every minute!

    Have you seen "The Greatest Drag Race 2013" ? http://youtu.be/8k1DIrfNr48  I'm really happy that the 911 won the competition overall again, but the drag race was really embarassing for Porsche. The only Cars slower than the 911 were the Cayman and the Fiesta. Even that stupid F-Type has beaten the 911.  


    Re: Motor Trend 2013 Best driver's car of the year

    Wonderful, well made and very entertaining video, one of the best I ever saw here, with good reports from the everyone involved. Great result for the 911 but the dragrace was indeed embarrassing for the Porsche. The AM must have missed a shift it was even slower than the poor 911.

    I think the AM is just slow...

    The big big surprise was the e63 wagon. That thing is a rocket!

    I'm not quite sure if it is that embarrassing for Porsche, considerng that most of the participating cars have more hp and torque than both Porsches. 

    It's only the C4S... One model above the base 911. The Jag F-type is the most powerful they offer at the moment. Put it against the most powerful 911 and it wil lose hahaha :)

    That AMG E63 is pretty quick indeed... For a hearse haha. Amazing power of course, but it's a bit difficult for me to say something positive about an AMG. Smiley Not a big fan of the brand with the star. But I have to admit that the SLS surprised me. I even (almost) liked the looks of it. Ouch that did hurt... Smiley

    Indeed, the AMG smashed the M6, so the M5 would stay even further down

    Yes, thats true. And the final result showed how good the complete 911 package is. But honestly I think Porsche puts not enough power in their cars. Image the 991S with 450hp and more torque. That thing would annihilate the competition even more and would look better in drag races smiley

    But next year the 991 Turbo S will be in the lineup. Yeah!
