    997S PCCB -20mm sport chassis tested by autocar

    This is the car Porsche GB decided to send to Autocar for their comparo article with the new Aston V8.
    It is the 1st time that I read an article about the sport chassis written by a UK publication, which are usually very good.
    I was in doubt they would complain about the harsh driving but not at all, the car actually wins the comparaison convincingly (design aside of course, we're talking about the driving experience) and to describe the sport chassis, Autocar wrote:

    Porsche GB sent us their most experienced, deadliest 911!

    You can read the article on the sports car board kindly posted by Atlantis.
    Basically, the Aston is great but lacks the composure of the 911 at the Apex, so for 99% of drivers, it's pretty much down to looks, sounds, exclusivity and whether or not you think those are worth Pounds15,000 over the 911S.
    Autocar quote: The 911 is the stuff of genius, but then again, against rivals like that, it needs to be.

    yesterday I drove the new aston db9... there is definitevely no match against the carrera's.... the aston is a big delusion in my eye's... is is like driving a fat family car!
    ciao

    Thanks Atlantis..

    One question left unanswered

    What would the result have been if the 997S has PASM and standard brakes? Would it still have won?

    Re: One question left unanswered

    In AMS from today they tested the aston and it accelerates from 0-100km/h in 5.5 sec... I'm glad to see that the "911-killer" won't kill me at the stoplights...

    That's slower than a 987S!

    I haven't tries either so I don't know. At this level of performance, you really have to push the cars to find out a difference.
    The 997S PASM is very versatile in the sense that it can be a comfy GT and harder sports car at the touch of a button.
    The sport chassis 997S is more raw alltogether.
    I guess Porsche UK didn't take any chance for the article
