    Christian, you have out did yourself with your post regarding the "encounter". I believe much of it is wishful thinking coupled with a need for ego support. A truer scenario probably is you were traveling around 180K and was followed by two young women having fun. The day factory drivers are out on the Autobahn racing at speeds near 260K is the day they get fired.

    That said, it was a good story.kiss

    BTW, has anyone beaten you in your R8?

    911s have a history of overtaking themselves too, but that's been disciplined out of the car.

    RC:

    Drove on the B17 in Bavaria yesterday in my R8.

    "Met" a Porsche 991.2 Carrera GTS Coupe in red along the way.

    We initially drove through two sharp curves at very high speeds (over 220 kph) but I couldn't get closer (it was basically the same performance). I thought something is wrong with my car but it didn't feel that way. My R8 does 100 to 200 kph in 6.5 seconds, when I'm alone, I was with my wife this time, so maybe a tiny bit worse indecision (she weights 56 kg).

    The Porsche suddenly reduced speed on a straight (at around 200 kph, we had traffic), moved to the right and then moved back behind me. I fully accelerated and drove at around 240-260 kph through some curves there but I couldn't shake off the Porsche. These are usually the curves everyone else "gives" up at these speeds, they aren't difficult to drive that fast but they look nasty (and you need to pay attention that you don't have the surprise of much slower traffic after the curve). I drove these curves at least a couple of hundreds of times, so I could do it in my sleep.

    Over 260 kph, I had the feeling that I am driving away very very slowly but under that speed, the Porsche was basically sticking to my rear. He couldn't pass (I moved to the right lane) but it was the same speed.

    I was kind of pissed to be honest. Usually, I'm the "king" of these curves at those speeds, the road is also a bit uneven in these curves, so drivers often get even more scared.

    Well...the car had a S-OL license plate and www.porsche.de/werkswagen on it. A factory car. 

    When a speed limit came up, I looked inside the other car (to my left) and there were two pretty women inside the car, the older one was driving and she didn't look happy (neither did I, I think...).

    Bottom line is: This was no ordinary 991.2 Carrera GTS Coupe, no way. My 991.2 Carrera GTS Cab has outran on the Autobahn three(!) 991.2 GTS so far, only little by little but it did, it's engine is certainly in a very good shape. My 991.2 Carrera GTS Cab stands no chance against my R8, we tried it. 

    My guess is: This 991.2 Carrera GTS with S-OL license plates had over 500 hp. At least. So the 992 came into my mind. Maybe the next 992 Carrera GTS? Maybe a different prototype? I know that Porsche tests future engines and tech in "older" models but this one was really looking stock. Nothing out of the ordinary on this car, I looked at the rear, the front, nothing special (as far as I could tell).

    So if you meet a Carrera GTS with S-OL license plates on the Autobahn, be aware of it. Not slow. Not the car and not the driver. indecision

    It could have only been a super prototype having been able to keep up with you and your 56kg wife! Smiley

    Since I own a 991.2 Carrera GTS Cab myself and one in a pretty good shape (power-wise, two Coupe encounters and my Cab was always a tiny bit faster) and it was never able to follow my R8 (we tried) in any speed range and especially not above 200 kph, I assume that if that GTS Coupe was exactly as fast as my R8 (I was going full throttle, up to 280 kph at one point), it wasn't stock. Add the S-OL license plates to it, then the female driver (drive the B17 at that part at 260-270 kph per hour...in curves, one of our users knows that road, he PMed me) and the fact that she didn't look happy when she was next to me (I smiled and wanted to show thumbs up but she didn't look at all and looked pretty pissed), are clear indications for a non-stock factory car.

    This has nothing to do with me and my 56 kg wife but common sense and a bit of intelligence. Smiley

    1 + 1 = 2. Simple math. You should try it. Smiley

    Btw: You could be happy to do 240-250 kph on that road in your GT3, it has bumps in the curves, with your stiff suspension setup, you wouldn't survive higher speeds in those curves. Smiley

    I'm not planning to go anywhere near the limit of my car at that sort of speeds on the public road, thank you! Smiley

    A second part of the report I didn't understand:

    When a speed limit came up, I looked inside the other car (to my left) and there were two pretty women inside the car, the older one was driving and she didn't look happy (neither did I, I think...).

    Why exactly didn't either of you look happy? Because both of you had taken the "race" so seriously and weren't satisfied with a tie, or... ?

    1. I wasn't even close to "my" limit, since I had my wife in the car. Smiley (did the same road in my E63S at around 260...with almost 4 bar tire pressure in my front tires...you should try it  Smiley). Actually, I haven't driven at "my" limit for a very long time since I am easier scared than in the past. Age and all... Smiley

    2. I didn't look happy because the woman didn't look happy. I thought it was fun and wanted to show my thumbs up but... Smiley

    Here is a very nice photo of the new 992...you can see by the brake lights how the rear lights will look.
