    just for fun - top speed

    this was last night...  anyone know what the top speed is in the 991 carrera S ?IMG_3890.MOV


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Nicely done, I think you could have gone a bit faster though smiley

     


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    thanks trip, but it was really dark, and a turn appeared, and there were cops ahead!  :o

    but yes, next time...


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    I was joking, please do not take that as a challenge! Looks like a lot of fun though. Drive safe 


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    oh!!!  ok  :)  maybe at safer conditions like at a race or something!  but you're right.


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Nice speed blush

    Re: just for fun - top speed

    not yet gnil, but i will look into finding the right race track soon :)


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    thanks again for the info!  here is the info on the P (North America) site:

    911 Carrera S:

     

    • TOP TRACK SPEED:  188 mph 
    • 0-60 mph: 4.3 s
    • 400 hp @ 7,400 rpm

    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Thanks for posting - I just love the amazing sound of the 991 - does yours have the sports exhaust?

    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Hi beau, just curious, why do you use km/h unit on your speedometer display? Are you more familiar with the metric?

    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Dreamcar: Yes, I have watched a lot of Youtube videos on the 991 and it's interesting how they all sound the same!  No, I don't have the sports exhaust--next time!

    Buzzinfrog:  I wanted to have the option of seeing both (since I go south of the border), I already have the speedometer in mph on the left side of the tachometer, that way I can obey the km laws more easily instead of trying to constantly calculate my speed.  (I hope I am using the right terminology--correct me if i'm wrong!)


    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Beau - do you have PDK or manual?  Your 0-60 times would be quicker with PDK.

    My acceleration 0-60 with PDK and launch control, on my GTS, is down to 3.6 sec...kiss

    Re: just for fun - top speed

    Hi John, it's PDK, haven't timed the 0-60 yet, but I will.  

    3.6?  nice...

    If you watch the video you can see it is the PDK.  Certainly the factory figures, quoted, are conservative and 3.5 is easy with the right temps.

    Aaron, I've been trying several circuits for maximum speed but without success.  I thought Silverstone would crack it, but the best I got was 143mph on Hangar Straight before having to brake hard into Stowe Corner!

    I've managed 170 on a deserted motorway at night, but I guess a trip to an Autobahn is the only way to really find the true maximum!!  Smiley

    And even on the German autobahn you need to go a remote unrestricted stretch.  On  my drives to the Ring ( about 400 km of German autobahn ) I never managed to go faster then about 280 km/h , as there is always traffic , or restrictions in the way Smiley
