    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    A good friend of mine will be one of the first customers for a 997TT when he picks his up in July, so I'll find out then. But I'm prepared to bet that the 997TT is 'a lot' faster than the 996TT. If you remember when the 993TT became 996TT tests at the time found that the 996 was actually a little slower than 993. Since then it's been improved with the X50 kit and other enhancements. With the 997's VTG I expect that the breadth of the torque curve will be considerably more than in the 996. As you know, it's not the peak power that determines acceleration, but the area under the torque curve (torque x revs).

    Also since Porsche are quoting 8.7 seconds for the 997 GT3 (0-100mph), the Turbo is bound to be a good bit quicker than that (perhaps 8 seconds?). Surely that's mighty fast in anyone's books?

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    Hope so. Mine comes in June/July 2006.

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    These are the official Performance stats for the 997 TT.

    0-60 MPH : 3.7/3.4 (Man/Tip)
    0-100 Km/h : 3.9/3.7 (Man/Tip)
    0-160 Km/h : 8.4/7.8 (Man/Tip)
    0-200 Km/h : 12.8/12.2 (Man/Tip)

    0-400 m : 11.8/11.6 (Man/Tip)

    Top Speed : 310 Km/h (Man/Tip)

    All stats are without Sports Chrono Turbo.

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    7.8seconds 0-100mph, so I guessed right. Boy, that's fast.

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    The spec sheet from my deaker doesn't list sports chrono turbo, only plus. Is that the same as "turbo".

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........


    thanks for the words. These are the videos we did, we also did BMW M6 vs Ruf 996 Turbo R (550 HP) video vs the M6, and laso Mercedes SL55 AMG. The M6 lost to the Ruf but was faster than the SL55 AMG. However I had to take all the videos that was done on roads offline since it upset BMW after Mercedes owners mailed BMW Germany and Sweden informing them of "illegal speeds" on public roads.

    In anycase, another enthusiast in Canade raced the M5 vs the 911 Turbo and the 997S, and the M5 was faster.

    996 Turbo:

    They first used wrong settings, but later posted th eabove videos with the correct settings:

    Another video where M5 is smoking a 911 Turbo:

    Any questions just ask.

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    Gustav, Are the tt's -414 hp turbos or a higher variety (i.e. S or X50) ? I do believe that a M5 can smoke a 996tt. Maybe even beating out a 996ttS, but I have a hard time beliving that it beats a 510 hp 996tt as indicated in the vids from the abandoned airport.
    Can you please elaborate?

    Re: M Engines vs Porsche's finest.........

    The M6 vs 911 Turbo is a standard Turbo.

    The one with the M5 had Techart tuned. In fact this one:

    I wouldnt say the M5 beat the Techart X50, it was identical in acceleration is my thought.
