    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Thing is no one argues that the Turbo S is even close to the 720S above 200kph. On a quarter mile the incredible launch however more than makes up for the slower acceleration above 200kph. It is quite a serious allegation to make that Porsche are tuning all the press cars all over the world. What about all the ones that did run 10.4 - did they just forget to tune those? That is why I think the conspiracy theory is far fetched. You would require so many people in so many places to be in on the “deal”. Much harder than cheating on an NBR laptime with one special model.

    Press cars (I do not point fingers at any manufacturer Smiley) with turbo charging often have a slightly higher boost pressure. Very simple and subtle "mod". Not a difficult task since the software has been already tested in the mules. Smiley The display can be adjusted to show less (=series production). Not really difficult. 0.1 bar more boost pressure already makes a hell of a difference, sometimes up to 50 hp.

    If that's what you think, then Porsche can just as easily give every car the same 'extra' boost. Especially when press cars are driven harder and abused more, they need a more reliable car as a press car if anything.

    Porsche only published minimum performance number, not the fastest number a car can achieved.

    but it cannot be as fast as a Performante or faster. this is a capital offense Smiley

    Fit the Turbo S with the same semi-slick tyres as most of the other cars listed here and it should run at least a second faster?


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    just wanted to say - all on same tires of course mail

    Listen, I don't want to discuss this further because I cannot prove it without getting myself or someone else in big poo poo. Smiley 

    I can tell you how it worked with n/a engines in the past, before the engine dry testing started: Very "good" engines were used for press cars. Very simple method and no real cheating.

    As to minimum performance numbers, you drank a little bit too much of that Porsche Kool Aid. It may be true most of the time but I wouldn't use it as a rule of thumb. Fact is: Porsche never exaggerates their performance figures, this is true. Some manufacturers achieve certain performance numbers only under specific circumstances.

    Evo factory cars usually run on PZeros, not even the Corsa anymore (which is basically in the middle between the Trofeo R and the PZero).

    For once, not an abandoned WW2 airport to boot.  I know how close Botany Bay is to the end of those runways... hope they didn't have to test the brakes to failure as well....

    Outcome pretty much as expected - Porsche winning the drag race, Ferrari winning the rolling race and Lambo having the best sound.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Huge price difference between the Porsche and the other two, especially the Ferrari. When the usability, versatility and solidity of the Porsche in real life and outside a drag strip, is factored in then the price of the Ferrari appears really exorbitant.

    I understand that some people attach great importance to the element of perceived wealth that accompanies the two Italian cars. Also, there is often a preference for cars with extravagant styling when serious money is spent. Depending on priorities, the Porsche is lacking in both the areas above.

    When I collected it yesterday from @centroporschepadova they told me to take it easy and get to know the car and not to trash the tyres immediately. Sorry.
