    Evo 911 Group Test

    Wow!

    http://www.evo.co.uk/carreviews/cargrouptests/287884/porsche_911_through_the_ages.html

    Not surprised about the 964 but very surprised that they liked the 996 so much

    Nice,

    thank you for the link. The result does come as a bit of a surprise although and I would love to know the suspension specifications on the cars used. At least on the 997 and 991, they make a huge difference in the car´s character. Judging by the pictures, the 964 was also using a suspension layout that was off the regular specifications. 

    I personally found it interesting to hear that Porsche successfully erased the rear-engine traits from that model, up to a point where the layout is hardly discernible.


    Re: Evo 911 Group Test

    Very interesting article. Too bad about the mid-70s gap. I agree with Ferdie, about differences in specs possibly accounting for the differences in character reported by the author.

    I imagine the difference in steering heaviness between the SC and the 3.2 is mainly due to the different wheels and tires fitted to the two cars. Yet, the 16" 50 series tires were available on the SC as well. Were there front geometry changes between the two generations? I doubt it. The way the author describes the steering heft in the 3.2 is how I remember the steering in my brother's '82 SC with the P7 option. Then again, that was about 30 years ago...
