    Re: 1.6l 4 cilinder Boxster

    Sorry RC - deleted my post to reword it but you beat me to it! Smiley

    My spec would have been reasonably basic, white, PDK, no sunroof or PCCB, black leather (so SWMBO gets her electrically adjustable non-sport plus seats, not available with alcantara sadly), Bose and a few bits of trim. Smiley

    I listened to that in my headphones and I heard a great sound. Not unlike a Subaru but with a Porsche character to it.

    No Gnil, I am not selling my GT4 indecision

    You will be disappointed, same goes to the 991.2 facelift.

    It sounds loud in the video and the car is revving very high, something you usually don't do on normal roads.

    So the normal rev range on the street is around 2000-5000 rpm and in this range, you barely hear anything from these engines, just wait and see. Highly disappointing but as someone said...it is the future. Smiley

    No way near as disappointed as you will be once the first 991.2 or maybe even 981.2 pulls away from your GTS on autobahn smiley

    Would you believe me if I say I don't care? I didn't care when that RS5 Cab was breathing down my neck, even if I was slightly faster. I barely drive on the Autobahn (maybe once per month maybe) and my Autobahn car is the Shelby. Still enjoying that look on the M5's drivers face when I pulled away like nothing from 160 kph. Up to 290 kph, my Shelby is almost unbeatable, 6 seconds flat from 100 to 200 kph and due to some serious cooling system improvements, there is basically no heat soak at very high temperatures, making the performance difference vs. normal cars even more extreme.

    How do you feel when I pull away in my US Ford from your GT4 on the Autobahn? Smiley Smiley

    Don't bother listening to it unless you use high quality headphones. Smartphone and computer speakers cannot reproduce the low frequency rumble. Yes, otherwise you only hear high frequency tire and wind noise  

    Absolutely agree. In fact not sounding that bad after all.

    European sports cars  are sounding more and more like " cruder " American OHV muscle car motors of the past 50 yrs:  " low frequency rumbles " vs " refined " NA OHC sharply metallic  high pitched screaming as the rpms rise ...now going away due to firstly increasing displacements as they have gotten heavier over the years and now the unavoidable physics of turbo attenuation 

    the hopeful comments like  " just needs an aftermarket exhaust " on the F boards regarding the 488 turbo are futile ...hasn't helped the 911 Turbo ...where aftermarket cans just make it  throatier and mainly  louder but no where near racer sounding like a GT3 .......nor has F1 racing ,  the most technical cars in the world with unlimited resources been able to " engineer " an audience pleasing sound to address one of the main reasons TV viewing of it races  is down the past 2 seasons 


    Re: 1.6l 4 cilinder Boxster

    Aftermarket exhausts cannot really deliver lately, especially with turbo charged cars. I haven't heard any good sounding Turbo S aftermarket exhaust yet but one (I won't say which one because it actually delivered over 20 hp less on the dyno according to someone who should know it ), so it seems that the VTG chargers aren't easy to deal with when it comes to a good exhaust sound.

    I have the best of both worlds...a V8 (ok, maybe a bit muted by the supercharger but not really) in my Shelby and that screaming 6-cyl. Boxer in my 991 GTS. Now I would love to add the Audi R8 V10 Plus and maybe a 458 Speciale to the mix and it would be perfect. The crown would probably be an Aventador or the F12. 

    Adding a G63 AMG as a family car would be the icing on the cake.

    Without the proper sound, a sports car (or even a family SUV) is boring. I realized this way too late, it could have saved me tons of money.

    I love it when exhaust manufacturers claim a 20 hp power gain but they usually fail to mention at what rpm figure. Smiley

    With a louder exhaust, the cars usually feel more powerful anyway, simply because it sounds more powerful. 

    I had Cargraphic on my 997 Turbo as well but RUF adapted their software to it.

    Also last but not least, Porsche voids the warranty for cars with third party exhausts. These cars are "blacklisted".

    Isn't that the same figures as for the new Audi RS3? I think that one has 367hp and generats 465Nm and that engine is 2.5L. So it is not that spectacular since the RS3 already is on the road with that spec.... Smiley


    Re: 1.6l 4 cilinder Boxster

    Yes, even 2 years ago the TT RS Plus had 360HP...
    But it is as always, from horsepower side Porsche is always down to the competitors.

    I see hard times for the 981 (Boxster and even more the Cayman).
    Now Porsche has very similar engines to most of the competitior (4 cylinder Turbo).
    future TT RS and current RS3 -> 5 cylinders
    BMW M235i 6 cylinders ans much cheaper
    The coming M2 6 cylinders and 370HP for a price you hardly get a base Cayman but with performance figures near to the GT4. Ok clearly it will lack the feeling the GT4 provides, but many customes will not see that. But it will be a M car so better that the normal 2 or 4 series. For most of the people enough.
