    Re: French Review

    He starts by stating that he loves the design, more agressive-- she imposes respect. Its very hard not to like the design.

    The car handle very well on back roads...

    The pilote who tries the car loves it. He loves/enjoy to make it slide/drift. He says that under heavy breaking in a curve the back have a tendancie to oversteer. Its a manual sport chrono turned on, PSM off. Excellent breaking.
    Pilote says nothing about the engine or comfort.

    He loves it for what it is, and does not compare it to other cars.

    They conclude by stating that it is a "vraie bombe" (translate by bad as.s car/awsome).
    Very positive...

    This reviewer switches PSM Off and then complains that the car oversteers? Translation: the car is stable, only when I'm foolish enough to cut its designed-in stability control, I'm left to my own skills and I may not be skilled enough to handle it.

    Re: French Review

    I'm thinking what he is referring to is the tendency that Porsche's as rear engine cars have- when you shift weight to the front the rear acts as a pendulum. Modern electronics do as you suggest help with this.

    Exactly.

    The weight shift, from under heavy breaking in a S-curve for exemple, with elect. aid off, the back have a tendencie to catch up the front. Problem inherent to all porsches as the engine is in the cback.

    I thought it was a excellent test drive video.

    The driver had finesse and explained things well. He did not mug to the camera or use tongue in cheek double entendres to cover leaving out some technical details about the car. It also had good production values.

    Thanks for posting it.

    I agree, it is a good video as the humble pilote just provide informations on what the car is worth on the track. Like Jim mentioned without any irrevelant details and/or without acting.

    Re: French Review

    I saw my first Turbo today. The car speed off and did make people turn heads towards the source of the engine roaring. To be honest I was disapointed with the sound. The car doesn't sound like it can do 0-100 in 3.7/3.8 seconds. Even the Ferrari 360 I saw sounded better.
    I really expected the car to sound like the Gallardo or F430. Does Porsche offer a exhaust package for the 997TT?

    Re: French Review

    The exhaust Fabspeed just developed for the 997 Turbo sounds pretty nice.
