    Thanks for the redirection.  I was about to post that Porsche needs to announce a new car so we can first praise it then criticize it for being too big, too heavy,  too expensive and underpowered. wink

    I only support cyclists on public roads if they are licensed and insured like a motor vehicle. That way, they also share the cost of building and maintaining the roads also as they are clearly using it. It's the only fair way to do things.


    What difference does that make to dangerous driving? 

    Apart from that, it's quite an awkward notion.

     

     

    Dangerous driving doesn't just applies to cars, motorcyclists can also be driven dangerously, and same with cyclists. 

    In those European roads, thing we fear the most were riders leaning into turns and the upper body is practically on the other side of the centreline. Haven't even talk about them passing at much higher speed over solid or double solid lines.

    Cyclists does the same thing, they fly down the road without regards to safety, expecting everyone to have noticed them and give way. 

    For every one reckless car driver, I can name you 3 motorcyclists and a couple cyclists.

    I don't known of a collective that disregards traffic rules as much as cyclists, and by a mile compared to the rest of the collectives of trucks, cars, motorcycles, etc

    They don't stop for redlights or stop signs, the go onto sidewalks amongst pedestrians, they don't respect predestrian crossings, they don't stop for roundabout right of ways, they ride in parallel blocking the hole road when they shouldn't, and so on. And if they hit a pedestrian, good luck grabbing a licence plate before they run away.

    Obviously there are good respectful cyclists too, but as a collective in general, they respect the rules the least, 100x more than anybody else. I don't remember the last time I saw a car or motorbike blow a redlight or don't respect pedestrians right of way in crossings, but I saw several cyclists just this week.

    Agree with the above. Wrong way down one way streets, drive on sidewalks when it suits them,  take whole lanes when they are doing way under the posted speed limit, blow through stop signs, and yet insist that it is cars that are the problem. Booooo!

     


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

    And they also have that pack mentality. When riding alone, most cyclists are a bit passive. But when a big cycling group do a group ride, oh boy, they will be like bunch of angry killer bees, picking fight whenever. 

    They don't respect road signs as they think the road signs are for motorized vehicles, and since a bicycle doesn't have a motor, the rules don't apply to them. they considered themselves 'pedestrians' regarding road signs. Couple with the fact that they are close to impossible to identify and report, breaking the laws is a given since stye know they can get away with it extremely easy. 

    I can just about bet anything if cyclists are registered and given plate numbers, the number of them breaking traffic laws will drop immediately down to almost zero.

    It did not stop motorists breaking traffic laws, but in theory you are right Smiley

    Yes, a lot of cyclists are very ignorant, but reckless riding a 15kg bicycle or reckless driving a 1500kg vehicle is a difference at impact for whoever is standing on the other side.

    Anyway, I have zero tolerance for reckless driving.

    That's what 992 looks to me. Gain like 50lbs in 15-20 years proportion wise.

    The car is simply fat. All the sexy curves are gone.

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

    I was driving behind one in Zürich yesterday and while I like the design, it has become massive. I cannot get used to the wide and high rear. Although the 992 does look better with the Turbo wing than without on the Carrera.

    I also drive behind a 991 GT3 Touring and this is such a beautiful car in comparison kiss

    Mine will arrive in February 2021


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

    I have had my 992 TTS now for three months. Before that I had the 991.2 version and before that a 991.1 GT3. What do I think of it so far?

    On the positive side:

    It feels noticeably faster than the previous one at any speed. You don't have to use your imagination to feel the difference.

    The engine noise is much improved with the sport exhaust. It is no GT3 but with the window open it sounds a lot like a GT2RS.

    It launches really hard. Don't know if the gearing helps but even without launch control it gets off the line much better. There may be faster cars at high speed but off the line I reckon only a 918 Spider might be faster on a normal road with normal tyres.

    The suspension seems more sporty than previous one. I have the standard suspension and I am glad I chose it as I daily the car and the sport suspension might have taken it too far towards a GT3/GT2 and if I want that kind of experience it is better to buy one of those.

    It does not feel any bigger on the road. Don't know where the perception of this large increase in size over 991.2 comes from - it is 20mm wider at the back and 45mm wider at the front. Still narrower than most peers and with 4 wheel steer I park anywhere a Golf can park. The wider front track is a big positive as you have more trust in the front and I am sure that will be a plus for upcoming 992 GT cars as well. The back brings more drama and many more people notice it is not an ordinary C4S than with the previous generation. I think it looks special with the 21 inch rear wheels and black painted calipers. 

    Gearbox feels even faster and more responsive.

    High speed stability feels improved.

    Built quality feels better than ever.

    On the negative side:

    It still has noticeable turbo lag. Better than previous generation but worse than 488 in my view. I know this is a TTS attribute but would not have complained if it was a bit less.

    While the interior looks much nicer than the previous gen the touch screen we all know is hard to operate on the move. At least there are a few buttons and options to program preferred buttons.

    Summary

    All in very happy with the car. Given my needs for daily driving it is always the first sports car I pick on my list before I get some weekend toys. 992 TTS big step up from 991.2 TTS and worth getting if you are a TTS person.

    Took this pic the other day. Not a 992 TS but really shows how fat 911s have become over the years.

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

    I took this one this morning as I was thinking about the size evolution of the 911. The problem is not so much in length or with, it is more about the thickness and specially that bay engine bay that is getting way too high. The 992 has lost the typical 911 back drop completely. And no spoiler , wing, or whatever can make that look better.

    Hi,

    picked up mine last week in Zuffenhausen. Of course, museum, factory and restaurant were Covid-closed, but I got a voucher for the aprés Covid era...

    992

    Went there with my brother and my (now) old 991.2 Turbo S. Here's a direct ass side-by-side:

    991.2 and 992

    Just the 992:

    Enjoy, Marcus

    "Bulbous". (Not a bad idea for a personalized plate indecision). The car looks good though, congrats. wink


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

    I love the new wider  design. It reflects dynamic performance and race evolution.  To me, the older cars look just that—older.

    And congratulations on your new beautiful car! A lot of money, but damn well worth it.


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

    Congratulations on having two beautiful cars.  Whilst the 911 has become larger with each recent generation it remains positively diminutive compared with the ever present expansion of trucks and SUVs found on U.S. roads. We had the S6 out for dinner last evening. A Nissan Titan pickup truck parked next to us.  Its door handles were higher than the Audi’s roofline and this truck was stock, meaning it didn’t have a lift kit to raise its height.  This is the environment Porsche is competing against. 


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

    Awesome with those wheels in silver! Congrats!
