    I was trying to find reasons to be cheerful in the current situation when I came across this feelgood  video smiley

    In the original 90s film the car was a black 964 Turbo 3.6 , for those  who remember.

     

    All three movies are quite entertaining, indeed. Smiley

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    The last 12 months or so haven't been really pleasurable for me too. But to experience a pandemic in our "advanced" world was the last thing I expected.

    In Cyprus we are not allowed permission to move around beyond specific area limits and for specific purposes only; consequently  I miss my weekend Porsche drives a lot smiley

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Anyone know what cars Porsche is talking about here?


    Stuttgart. On 18 May, Porsche is forging a new path in product communication. For the first time, the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer will be unveiling two new 911 models to a global audience on its own web TV channel. On  www.911-magazine.porsche.com, three successive episodes will give viewers a comprehensive insight into the new cars’ special technical features, historical backgrounds and design. In response to the global ban on events due to the coronavirus, the sports car manufacturer will thereby be presenting its new models to journalists and fans in virtual format for the first time.

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Is it collector’s item or speculators’ wishlist? Porsche, to its credit as a profit maximizer, excels at separating speculators from their borrowed funds. 



    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    I like it. A nice sports-cum-lifestyle 911. I think the Targa style suits the 992 body more than the cabriolet.

    Also the choice of other roof colours besides black (there is red in the video, maybe more)  is a good idea.

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    yes, "Targa noted", so where is the "second" model to be introduced today ... ? 


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    A GT3 targa would get my attention.

    When you're going through hell.....keep going.


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

     I like it too, but seems a lot more expensive than a coupe with a glass roof.  

    Anyone here own a Targa?  If so, real world usability, experience tips?


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    Friend of mine has a GTS targa, my only problem is the top bar which blocks the outside view of my 5 year old in the backseat. A convertible would be a better choice, for my very specific situation.

    The weight penalty is a major issue if you like a sporty experience.


    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    I do like the concept of the Targa and it looks very very nice, however I am overwhelmed by the German over-engineering of the roof mechanism (just to get the roof down / away !!!) and given that my first encounter with a Targa roof was a 1989 model ...

    Re: ROAD TEST: New 992 Carrera4S

    My first 911 was a 993 targa. Surprised I bought another 911 to be honest - it was a horrendous squeaky ugly mess.

    Yet 992.....
