    Mike S:
     

    My entire perception has also changed over time. I really don't care now about any attention. Actually, the less the better.

    I still drive our 96 Suzuki Sidekick to work sometimes as a result. Smiley

    Personally, I think the contrast is rather fun Smiley

     

    That's it, Mike, you truly do own every car for sale

    What does one call a fleet of 100+ 991s?  A plethora of Porsches?

    Pureblue - I can't believe there are so many in town - I thought there were just the 3 or 4 groups of 8 that you see going around the Peninsula.  This is astounding!

    What does one call a fleet of 100+ 991s?  A plethora of Porsches?  I just took a short walk down to the hotel where dealer principals from all over the world are staying for the international dealer launch - to be met by the sight of row upon row upon row of gleaming 991s stretching into the distance, all lined up and ready for their daily run around the Cape Peninsula.

    I didn't have my camera on me, but managed to snap a few shots with my BlackBerry - which I thought some of you may enjoy seeing.  Not a bad way to start a Monday morning!  Smiley

    991 gets 5 stars from Evo tested by Chris Harris

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    In latest Auto Zeitung 991C is compared with R8 4.2 and 650i.

    Key 991S numbers:

    0-100km/h: 3.9s

    0-200km/h:13.2s

    Yes, almost unbelivable numbers. Also, 991S almost 2s faster on the track then R8 4.2... BTW, all cars are the fastest when test by AZ. At least in last two years or so.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    Same result as Autobild test, less the 4s (0-100km/h in 3,8s) and 13,2s (0-200km/h)... it`s impressive...


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    Geez guys, will you stop posting these great test results?  I can't breathe.  Too much Porsche excitement for an old nut like me.  I am on Rennteam so frequently these days, my wife suspects I have a mistress.  Maybe I do and just should admit it.  Umm, curvaceous rear end, alluring headlights, low rumble building to a climactic howl, expensive to maintain...

    Good testing Carlos. I¨m thinking in trading my 997-1 Turbo for a brand new 991 S but I´m worried about performance, so waiting for your review..


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    Looking forward to it too. Hope you have dry weather

    Carlos, see what you can comment also on the "rear movements" (if the 991 is more neutral on rear movements compared with the 997). And vertical movements on the front in high-speed (if possible) also to compared with the 997 (in latest press reviews few mentioned this aspect - with the agreement that there is a better stability on high-speeds).

    Thanks.

    wink


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    Carlos please post a new thread regarding your feelings. Please also post many photos as white is probably again our choice for exterior colour. 

    Cant wait to your opinion !!kiss.

    also if the car is equipped with PSE, let us know how you compare it to your 997.1.

    kiss

    After seeing this car in white, I can already tell you its a winner, I would definately would go with white Smiley

    No PSE on this one unfortunately, It's a shame as I wanted to do just that, but the Sound Symposer is very interesting though, but I have to hear it more tomorrow.

    Any reviews on the base 991 performance?

    Which rear movement, which front vertical movement Smiley The car in now much more neutral and planted.  Yes, that has gone mostly. But Carlos will surely give us more detail , as I had the car only for 90 minutes and mostly on wet roads, with winter tyres. When I describe a more ' comfortable' car , and easier to drive, I was referring to all these aspects. As without them , you can cruse at hight speeds on bumpy roads and you do not feel anything that could worry even a new driver of the 911

    Thats what I want to read more members reviews. cant wait carlos. 


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    I went to the launch at my dealer last night. Great looking car, but:

    - I really found the centre console made it feel quite cramped inside when compared to my 997 GT2 and crazy small when compared to my 996GT2 which had the centre console delete option.

    - I tried to sit in the back. Now I don't expect to fit myself in comfort and I'm 6ft tall, but it really felt a lot smaller than my 964C4 was (the last 911 I owned that actually had rear seats).
