    Would you consider one after now having driven it ?

    As much as I consider getting a Tesla... Seriously, for me, an EV is a computer on four wheels. Gadget fun, no driving fun. The EV novelty wears off fast in my opinion. Porsche has, of course, achieved a different level of quality vs. Tesla and the drive feel is sportier as well but you can feel what you are driving and thats the problem. I still think the Taycan is the most attractive EV money can buy at this moment but this is not something I would consider for me as a fun car, maybe as a business car (if the lease is attractive and I get incentives). 

    I also have no comparison to the Tesla driving assist/autonomous driving systems because, simply put, I was never interested in this stuff.

    To be fair, I will give an honest opinion once I get the chance to drive the Turbo/Turbo S on the track, different beasts of course.

    I heard this number a long time ago but I wouldn't expect more than 640.

    Facelift hybrid will be more interesting in my opinion.

    Since the GT2RS needed water sprayers for over ~650hp, I wouldn’t expect more than this...

    GT2RS do have different turbos thought. Bigger ones that pushes more air and heat. Think the turbos are running out of breath for the normal turbo engines.

    The target one should look for is actually the Turbo S Exclusive, Porsche only managed 27 extra HP, from 580 to 607.

    620 almost seems inline with the Exclusive's 607, as it's already 40hp than the old Turbo S.

    Re: 992 turbo S Thread Closed

    In Fahrzeugschein was a diffrent value (less)

     Is it possible that you drove the regular turbo? It seems the turbo s might have even more than 650hp Smiley

    P.S.: Also the exhaust end pipes on the images you posted could indicate regular turbo

    Hmmh, don´t think so but who knows. I was only allowed to drive about 10 km.

    Re: 992 turbo S Thread Closed

    New Turbo S gets PSE option which adds mostly some turbo whining/hissing noises.

    Weight increases by 50 kg.

    Just thought you guys would be interested to know.

    Re: 992 turbo S Thread Closed

    That is similar weight increase as in the case of the Carrera S, in spite of the body weighing 12kg less.

    Blame mostly:

    Particulate filters

    PDK with extra gear

    BIgger wheels, fatter tyres.

    Does anyone knows how much weight the optional carbon roof saves?

    I think they are talking 1-1.5kg
