    If the ash tray proves to be the only blemish on this car, so be it!

    It's much more than that. Go sit in one and you will feel what I'm talking about. The interior trim they use looks like some cheap plastic fake carbon fibre, and the fonts on the dials is horrendous. Big big let down.

    Are you talking about F-type interior only or about ash tray(it is actually not ash tray) in new AMG GT? 


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    ...and very interesting that nobody commented that Top Gear article which is very informative and gives us a good info about AMG GT. 


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    FWIW - I rode in the back of Mr Princehorn's Porsche 911 once or perhaps more as a kid in Austria in the sixities or seventies.  That first time was all it took and I realized back then that this was the only car for me.  He was a family friend and neighbor from up the street.  When he came to viist I would just sit in the driveway and stare at the car.  If it had not had the back seat I would never have had the chance to drive in it.  Porsche knows how to start the love affair early - no doubt the back seats are important.

     


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    My daughter is small child but, she hates rear seats in 991 for example. She likes to be in our family car A6 3.0TDi (313ps biturbo version) much more. Rear seats in 911 are totally use less piece of crap, IMO. Oh, and GT3 or GT2 models do not have rear seats.

    It sounds like someone has developed a 911 allergy.

    If ordering 991 Turbo is an allergy then you could be right.

    No only F type. No argument on the AMG interior. It's beautiful and makes you want one!


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    My kids love to ride in the back of our California, Mini and 612...


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    BTW, "ash tray" from new AMG GT...


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    I was hoping for the new Mercedes heated cup holder with gyrostabilized Magic Cup control.kiss

    On the S coupe and sedan and the older CLs it has a nice polished wood cover. Hopefully this one will be not be plastic. Sadly its placed too near to critical electrical switches.

    The G Class shows what Mercedes engineers can really do when turned loose on cup holder design!

    Key numbers for GT-S model:

    312km/h

    3.5s

    Faster on the Ring then SLS AMG (7.40) with street tires.

    Full options same money as 991CS with full options.


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    ...and variable rate hydraulic steering.


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    What does full option mean in the case of 991CS? If you tick every single leather and CF option as well as all the performance options, it costs more than a turbo!


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    In 991CS full options means SPASM, PCCB, PDCC, LEDs and full leather interior option. NO stuoid things like defroster blend in leather etc.


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    PDK, Sport Chrono and Sport Exhaust?  No?

    reginos:

    Of course.


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    Well that is still going to be a fairly expensive C2S. But I suppose we are comparing to the S model so it's not so bad. 


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    Sounds like its basically close to a $135k US price, Elsewhere would depend what country you are in and what Porsche charges locally for options.


    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    KresoF1:

    Interesting!  The articles published said electric power steering.  Nice to see a new German car use hydraulic (can't think of another recent one)!  Does it run the pump traditionally from a belt on the engine or from an electric motor?

    A Ring time of 7:3X on non-R tires is very impressive.

    If this is factory time, no direct comparisons can be made.

    Like Timo Kluck's 7:37,9 with the 400HP 991 Carrera S, is in isolation.

    Re: AMG GT Thread Closed

    SLS AMG 7.40min is Sport Auto time driven by HvS.

    AMG GT-S is faster then 991CS (SPASM, PDCC, PCCB) on all tracks. As you will see when Sport Auto Supertest it in Spring next year it is as fast as 991TS on the track.

    It would be sad if it is not, with 110HP advantage over the 991 CS  How fast do you think the 991 CS would be with 30% more power?

    With 510HP it would have been a disaster if it wasn't faster than the Carrera S.

    Anyway by the time the GT is at the dealers we'll get information about the new 911s with more power and other enhancements

    These improvements are never ending and competition among manufacturers always  benefits the drivers.

    As fast on the track as 991TS which is 50ps more powerfull is enough for me. 

    Oh, wait. I am still suffering from 911 allergy that you very skilled diagnosed... Even ordering 911T probably won't cure me enough for you.
