    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Amazing review Carlos - Thanks for that!

    It confirms all our fears and hopes. Question is - will you get one?

    If he gets one, I guess he will take the plunge getting a GT3... Smiley Or a GT3 Cab... SmileySmiley

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Carlos, muchas gracias! Fantastic write-up! Not only did you write your real-life experiences and impressions of the car, but you took the effort to illustrate it all with beautiful pictures. I didn't have the time yet to fully read it, but I'm really looking forward to doing so. This is the kind of contributions that you come across only a couple of times per year, but when you do it makes up for all the tesla-related BS in the Taycan thread... smiley

    Thanks again mate!

    Question is - will you get one?

    Hi Lars, given my weakness for atmospheric engines, and also the importance of sound as part of the experience, and preference for the sportier setups in a 911, doesn't make sense for me having a 991.1GTS which is a treat as a daily in that regard.

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Fantastic review, thank you very much for posting. kiss I think you have probably nailed it but I did not yet drive the car.


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    PS, can we all take the time to reward this post with the appropriate number of stars, so it remains easy to find back as time progresses?

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    As others have stated: 'Danke' and well done. Briefly drove the new one and agree on most points. 

    Not ready for it (the switch from an earlier gen.) either...


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Carlos, thanks again, great job!

    PS - Porsche  needs to offer a leather option to cover all the plastic on the console!


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Brilliant write up Carlos, enjoyable to read as much as the rest of your reviews (and don’t take this lightly, you have set the bar really high).

    You might not be down with the base Carrera due the turbo engine, sound, etc. but I feel the itching is going to get more vivid with the GT3 Touring of this gen, what do you say?


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Thanks guys! I appreciated the kind words wink

    @Alex, I 2ish, that GT3 engine on the 992 chassis will be phenomenal combination and the GT3 Touring is actually my favorite 911 version, but for the use I give it, a high milage all year round daily it wouldnt work out I think... I'm still quite in love with the GTS though for now, we will see what happens

    Carlos,

    Buy a 991.2 Touring and drive it every day.  It will obviously make you happy given your purist leanings.  Forget about mileage and depreciation.  Life is short.  Great write up and thank you.

    Carlos, how much improvement in terms of front axle grip did you experience? The test car did not have Corsa tires, of course. But how would you compare front axle grip with a 991 GT3, for example?

    I would say, after my test drive on a mountain road, that it is pretty close , if not identical . I did of course not push it as hard as I would on a track . Only difference is sharpness and precision , but then , again , the 992 is closing in .

    It's not the depreciation, I've just put 100,000km on the GTS for example, is more about how practical it would be for such an intense and versatile use, if only I could have both, a GTS for weekdays and Touring for weekends surprise indecision

    And If I think about it a bit more , the comparaison is not fair . GT3 has cup tire . Taking this into consideration , 992 could well have better front grip then 9910.1 GT3 with same tire . That wider track  and better balance makes a big difference .
