    It looks good even upside down. I notice it did not have PASM Plus. The lower and harder suspension is still supple- and keeps the 911 true to the traditional sports car roots, especially when Sport + is engaged.

    Please someone advise how to a pic into my avatar?

    Any news about the 4/4s and GT3/Turbo debut date ?

    I sold my CTT and have been contemplating whether to put down a deposit on one of these in an AMG (63 trim) or wait for the 4s/turbo/GT3 ?


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    It's no surprise that MB is forcing this view - it's the only one that suits the car. As soon as you start seeing the other headlight your stomach acid starts to boil... SmileySmiley

    new SL is hideous .. 

    bloated, over sized, far too big a rear and utterly uncohesive design with the face of an ill fitting mask

    I wouldn't want that - I have very delicate knees thanks to motor-cycle accidents!!

    First time I've heard about this...Smiley

    Hello Ferdie,

    In the prairies of Canada, ice driving in winterish months [[5 of 12 mths!] can be treacherous. Older ABS could find no traction, so the brake pedal went high and the brakes were off!  Into neutral and parking brake...plus prayers.

    I drove my 997.1 Carrera Manual & and Cayman S 987.1 Manual in winter on good weekends [at least every 2 weeks]  which meant not snowing actively, or warmer than -20C. The modern ABS is smarter, and I usually had brakes, but used gears with very smooth downshifts for slowing down. Had no emergencies, but I drive VERY carefully in ice conditions, keepig AWAY from other cars AMAP. Turning off PSM is available in S or not, and does give more control.

    Winter tires, the best you can buy, are essential. Trouble is that available 'winters' , and Porsche recommended,  are only 'snows', with minimal ice adhesion. Ice tires would be much better is ice is frequent...but altho' I found 'Ice' tires from Bridgstone for the 997.1, now with the 991 there are ONLY snow tires avaiable...not great in sheet /black ice, but then nothing but studs or chains are really good.

    Good Luck...don't lose your tail in ice/snow, as recovery is Tuffff!
