    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    If my memory is not mistaken me , V8EDF license plate dark blue F430 is the same car that EVO tested in Supercar of the 2005 challenge.

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Just watch the programme after downloading it. Probably the best review of the 997 Turbo I have ever seen! And TC loved it!

    www.mininova.org

    do a search for top gear. This week's was series 9 4

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    all Top Gear episodes are archived at finalgear.com

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    I have put together a copy of the road test from today's Top Gear. The file has been compressed down to 13 MB and is viewed at 312x176 - I will replace it with a higher quality larger file in a week or so. I do this to control bandwidth which will likely be about 10-20GB tonight just for this one file based on past 'wanted' vids.

    The Top Gear video appears on my 911 video page along with recent clips that I put together from Motorweek featuring the 997TT, 996TT and 996 GT2.

    ENJOY !

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    What an excellent show last night. I thought the night time filming of the 997TT was really great.

    Unfortunately, the 997TT didn't get to go round the Top Gear test track. Crazy. They do that for every other car but not for this one.

    Instead, they spent time reviewing the Brabus SLV12 and testing that round the track.

    I really, really enjoyed the crazy project to build a Reliant Robin orbiter!

    This series of Top Gear has been inspired so far especially the US road trip. That was hilariously funny.

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Thought the review was awful... merely admitted the car was decent but still had no passion (how disrespectful is that to Porsche engineers?!?!)

    Also- that Brabus pile of crap was given more time AND a lap of the track even though it was "rubbish"... why not give a decent car like the Turbo more exposure time and a lap then?!?

    My gut feeling is that the Turbo didn't get a lap because it would have raped the F430 and Gallardo and that would have been too hard for Clarkson to swallow...

    His excuses for dismissing 911's are becoming unbelievably weak. Saying the GT3 RS was a rubbish car because it has "scaffolding" in the back... dear me!!

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Clarkson is just a funny guy, that's it.

    I won't listen to his comments about cars, he is not professional.

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Coochas,

    That was really good of you - thanks.

    As for the review, it certainly wasn't what I had expected. What's the deal with filming at night?? Anyway, it must have been difficult for JC to finally admit how good the tt really is.

    IMO, we should respect his preference for the 430.

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Coochas, thanks fo the rip! You the man!

    ... because you have to do something else if you don't have a 997 turbo ?

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Coochas, Thanks for the video

    Downshift, slam the right foot through the floor and pray that nothing comes around the corner in front of you .

    Unfortunately No. I get the whole episode via Bit Torrent, slice and dice it, then compress compress compress. I have to compress these 'hotter' files significantly to keep my bandwidth down,...just this one video has generated about 20 GB of download activity in 24 hours!

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Coochas,

    Your efforts are appreciated, Thanks!!

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Thanks Coochas, great review but no Stig.

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    Yeah, was there any explanation on why they did not do a timed lap?

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    It was Atomic's car and he asked not to have the car trashed

    Re: Top Gear to drive 997TT...

    LOL... I know that there are several manufacturers who only provide cars on the condition they are not tested on the track (Bugatti and Ferrari with the Enzo) but I can't imagine porsche having the same stip.
