    I think porsche US or Porsche North America made............

    an mistake online when they said....
    "Powered by the proven 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine, which has an output of 325 hp (SAE), the Carrera 4 accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h)in 4.6 seconds and has a top track speed of 174 mph (280 km/h). The Carrera 4S is equipped with a larger 3.8-liter engine that develops 355 hp (SAE) and accelerates the car from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds and to a top track speed of 179 mph (288 km/h)."

    Why would the Carrera 4 go 0-60 in 4.6 seconds like the Carrera 4S. Obviously a typo I thought I would point out. Just funny its on the porsche website. Some people get mad when car and driver makes mistakes(like the one about cayman positioning a pricing) Well porsche does it too apparantly.....
    Go here...
    http://www2.us.porsche.com/usa/
    and obviously click on the Carrera 4 thing in the middle.

    I don't think it's a mistake dsts6. It's written on every Porsche site across the globe AND it also says the same on the new brochures.

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made............

    No actually its a typo. Just checked www.onlyporsche.net and I think on the debut pages and other stuff it says 0-60 in 4.9 and 0-60 in 4.6 for the 3.6 and 3.8 respectively. There is not reason why they would market a car with a bigger engine that does the exact same 0-60. They confused a 9 with a 6, it happens I guess.

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made............

    maybe 0-60 is same but 0-120 is surely different!

    On mine it says 0 to 100km/h in 5.1 for the C4
    and 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8..... it seems all a bit confusing!
    What are the figures for 0 to 62 MPH ?

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made............

    0-62mph = 0-100 km

    I didn' t know that, thanks for the info

    But do agree that my 2 cent imput was crap!

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made............

    dont worry, i believe that c4 is slower than c2(5.1 v 5.0)
    whereas the C4S is equal with C2S (0-100=4.8)


    I think partially this maybe be cause due to changes in tires

    C2 REAR=265/40 18 C2S REAR= 295/30 19
    C4 REAR=295/35 18 C4S REAR= 305/30 19


    BETWEEN C2 V C4 THE TIRE IN 3 SIZES BIGGER

    WHEREAS IN

    C2S V C4S THE DIFFERENCE IS ONLY ONE SIZE BIGGER

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made........

    Didn't C&G or R&T have an incredible low time for 0-60on the 997/S? Well... .

    Assuming it's NOT a typo:
    It just means how much you want to torture the drivetrain and tires. You can get a range of numbers on any give test day and publish any one you want.

    just my $.02

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made........

    not sure i get your point

    not a great point for sure but: the 0-60 times are based on how much potentially destructive abuse you want to give the clutch and drivetrain, on the conditions that day, on the tires, on the specific individual car tested etc.

    I'm sure there's a "bottom-line hit-a-brick-wall" time which would involve serious abuse to the car. It would also be the absolute fastest 0-60 time possible.

    If Porsche published THAT time there would be a HUGE controversy.

    So: announced/ published 0-60 times are far from scientific facts, there're subjective.

    Just my opinion... .

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made........

    i m not so sure abou that, but what is the

    "Didn't C&G or R&T" that you mention?

    "R&T" = Road and Track Magazine

    "C&G" = Car and Griver Magazine

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made........

    well i remember they both posted very optimized times for these cars

    Re: I think porsche US or Porsche North America made........

    I saw on some other sites and places about the 0-60 times. I'm pretty much convinced they made a mistake. Other sites have a paragraph, like the one I posted that say either the identical things or sentences very similar, and they had the times of 4.6 and 4.9. Sorry if what I said was hard to understand. Bad english........
