    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    I always like Matthias reviews,but never saw this before. Christian,show some picture of your shelby,is it black on black on black rims?,Nick is right, Germans doesn't know how to label threadskiss


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Here you go... (no stripes...makes the car more stealth but I may add them eventually because people usually don't seem to recognize the car without the stripes). People are very impressed when they see the 360 kph speedo... (top speed is 322 kph but I have 335 kph in my car documents (tuning), however the car easily passes 340...never tried it though, too dangerous, my personal top speed was a GPS measured 321 kph and I was scared as hell, I usually don't go over 280-300 kph in this car).

    Wow, you stressed the stealth look to perfection then Smiley ... I am certainly not in the same league as your are with the shelby, but I added stripes to my all-black Cayman GTS because I felt that I am better seen on the motorway / Autobahn...so, as odd as it may seem...stripes for me turn out to be a safety measure...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    I usually turn the headlights on when I drive on the Autobahn...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    yeah, done that too, but all those new day lights are so "bright" already nowadays that the people seem not be able to distinguish...

    Nice wheels! kiss The same ones I had on my old Boxster.

    OZ Ultraleggera...sorry Smiley...but they fit the Boxster as well (in a different size of course).

    They are much lighter than the OEM Shelby rims but they have one disadvantage (I can live with): For drag racing, not the best choice. The OEM rims have some sort of built-in tire slip prevention feature (seriously), so the tire cannot slip on the rim. Interesting...

    The tires are PZero instead of the OEM Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 semi-slicks, for obvious reasons. Unfortunately they require a 3.0 bar tire pressure at speeds over 300 kph... Actually, to drive at top speed, I would be required to use 3.4 bar. Smiley Right now, I am driving 2.8 bar front and rear, the best compromise and I do not drive fully loaded or faster than 300 kph. The OEM tires require 2.4 bar, even at top speed but they are barely drivable at temperatures below 20°C. Smiley

    As you can see, driving a GT500 requires a lot of compromises and a steep learning curve (stuff you don't find on the internet, just through people who deal with these cars for years...), I probably wouldn't do it again because it was pretty tiresome in the beginning. 

    Now we all know why companies like Porsche or Ferrari or even Mercedes/BMW are asking much more money for similar performance... Smiley

    I spotted a light blue metallic 991.2 Targa, with graphite wheels, in Zürich today. It looked stunning! It had PSE and was louder then what I had expected, mostly based on the rants here 

    You are getting the right car Nick kiss

    Probably some airflow / aerodynamics measurements.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Probably they are testing enlarged chassis setups, wider front and rear axles.

    Yeah, with the foam fender inserts, they must be testing a new chassis design.

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Maybe checking for potential risk of tyres rubbing against adjacent body parts with different suspension set-ups under highly dynamic driving conditions, to try to eliminate any future complaints about side marker lights being "popped" out of their mountings.  Smiley
