    Porsche 911 Grand Tour

    Hi guys,

    I attended a Porsche invite track event at our local Mission raceway track yesterday.  Tried 8 variants of 991 on track with various power and options.  They are all PDK.  Here's my quick review:

    - all 991 very easy and very comfortable to drive very fast

    - base 991 with 370hp probably not enough hp for track use

    - 991S with 420hp has enough power to hang with any 997 GT3 or RS variants on track

    - Yes, they are very quiet, even the one with sport exhaust on is quiet

    - PDCC offers good confidence for track driving.  I don't think I am faster with the system, but less body lean means more confident in turns

    - I cannot comment on rear wheel steer as the only car with RWS has PDCC with it

    - Miami blue is the best color

    -glad that my buddy Kees Nierop (far right on first picture) was instructor yesterday.  For those who don't know him, he is a Porsche factory car driver and race champion, and the only Canadian with his name on a car in the Porsche museum

    Damn it Tim, had I know you were going I would have gone too.

    But you know what, you are partial to blue, in reality, black looks best! indecision

    Tim do you drive the Targa? If so, what are your impressions?

    I imagine that he didn't drive his own car on track? Was Mission big enough to really stretch their legs? Area 27 soon wink

    Re: Porsche 911 Grand Tour

    I drove all of the 991.2 variants on track.  No, we did not use our own cars.

    Mission is too small.  We cannot even reach 200km/hr at the end of the long straight.  I only go down to Ridge for my own track days now.  But since this event is free for me, there is nothing to lose.

    They will not let us open the roof of the Targa and Cab.  The Targa and Cab perform as well as any other variants on track.  All of them very solid and easy to drive fast.  I do not hear any rattle noise of roof structure.  I do not see any fault of them except being too quiet.

    Having said that, we all agree that for the base price of S plus some good options, the cars are pushing near the price of a GT3 and we might as well buy a GT3.  But I understand that GT3 is not for everyone for daily use.

    Nick,

    Not the same tour.

    Mine is just one day Mission track driving.

    The one you enclosed is a 3 days tour.  I do not plan to take 3 days off work.  My patients will kill me.Smiley
