    which has longer wheelbase, 991 or 981?

     

    I assumed 991. I was wrong.
     
    991: 2450mm
    981: 2475mm
     
    Very surprised!
     
    doesn't this mean that the 991 should be more agile and go kart like than the 981?

    Having the engine behind the axle still plays a bigger role in defining the 991's handling characteristics than the 25mm shorter wheelbase.

    25mm difference is 1% of the wheelbase. Do you really think that would affect the handling a lot? Or was it a trick question? Smiley

    More interesting to compare are total weight, weight distribution and centre of gravity.

    put like that, it becomes immaterial ..

    C2S coupe is 75kgs heavier than 981S, C2S Cab is 145kgs heavier than 981S
