    Fun! And the car looks great in blue.


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    No 992s at my dealer to look at until August. Wow!

    Somehow the 992/911 Turbo with quad exhaust tips looks decent, but the other 911s are too....  angry

    There is only one problem with this: They measured the speedo reading (100 kph, 200 kph), they didn't use measuring equipment. From 100 to 200, I stopped 7 seconds flat, this is more like it. Smiley 

    Yes, there is a YouTube video!

    I assume the 992 Carrera S will do 0-200 kph in 11 seconds, maybe slightly under 11 (10.7 or 10.8). Good number for a 450 hp car. Smiley

    With all the speedo error, surface and all into account... this is fast!

    Of course it is fast, would be weird if it wasn't.

    My C63 S AMG Cab is almost a second faster from 0-200 kph and almost five second faster to 280 kph despite the same power figure (510 hp). They switched to a 9 speed MCT gearbox and re-programmed the software, this does the trick. 

    Same with Porsche: Same power as previous 991.2 GTS but faster...despite the higher weight.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

     INMO Porsche is offering some pretty exciting options over the next year. I admit to being attracted to a nicely optioned 992 Carrera S, and also to the upcoming Taycan. Regarding the Taycan, I’m assuming it will be introduced in Frankfurt in September, and I will be there on press days on the 10th and 11th. RC, is there a chance you might be there? Anybody else?

    I may be in Geneva this year but not in Frankfurt because school starts mid of September, so... Smiley

    RC, I will miss Geneva this year,  but will continue to hope we will meet sometime.


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Porsche plans to build 40,000 Taycan's a year.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Well after an M5 shaped pause on this forum the M5 F10M has gone and my 992 C2S has a provisional build date of 19th March. The first tests look good and I fancy something a bit lighter.... I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my M5 especially 2wd!

    The 992 is GT Silver with the Spyder style wheels.

    I see RC seems to have fallen out of love with 911 daily drivers but I think I will have another go...


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Good for you—GT Silver is classic.  I’m fancying Carrera White metallic with black/burgundy leather and carbon options. But Taycan tempts as well..


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I’m interested in a Taycan too but having tested several electric cars I think that I will wait a while - charging infrastructure, real world range in Germany on autobahns, weight and especially that they feel rather similar to each other - it will be really interesting how they can make the Taycan emotional. The 992 may well be the last of this sort of car from Porsche for Europe- and a hybrid version will be even heavier- so I figure that a 992 C2S will make a nice filler until the electric Porsche matures a bit. And if we get speed limits here at some point then I will probably go 992 GT3 and track it.

    I heard they were going to give it a "sport exhaust" option via OTA Smiley

    ... at least here in Germany we pay between 2019 until 2021 for all new electric (and hybrid) cars a 0,5 % reduced monthly private use ... so a Taycan is much more interesting compared to 992

    ?? reduced rate for what cost?  Electricity?  Insurance?

    Half tax for the private use of a business car. 0,5% instead of 1% of the vehicle price per month.

    The design of the retro-"new" tach on the 992 is gorgeous up to the last detail, like the matching font of the speed readout or the 3D surfaces/rings.
