    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

    Your driving impressions / report will be very welcome.  Smiley


    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

     A change in plans.

    While at the dealership they had a white beige 997.2 turbo Cab. It has everything the S except PCCB and RS wheels. Naturally my wife really liked it. She asked me to negotiate a deal because she doesn't want to wait six months.

    I was able to work it out with the dealership and will pick the car up tomorrow.

    The savings over the S is considerable especially considering (as she said) wouldn't know the difference in power and it has all the features she wanted.

    So it goes.

    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

    Hmm, no S, but still a great car. And to be honest, I think most of us don't really need the PCCB...

    ... but they are nice to have. Smiley

    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

    Hate to say it, but your wife has better car taste? :)

    r you are just using the wife as the excuse? You still secretly want a 911?

    Congratulations on your choice, Nick. Smiley 

    On your choice of wife, that is.  Smiley

    PS:  Knowing that you were begrudgingly also a closet admirer of the Carrera GT I should warn you that the color you are going with is Carrara white, not Carrera white as you wrote.  Smiley

     My wife loves the Cab and wants one. Tomorrow we are meeting with the sales rep. It will be a July production with delivery sometime in August.

    Carrera white with beige interior. Only other option will be heated seats. The S package is fairly complete.
     


    Cocoa would complement white exterior better Smiley

    look on the bright side Fritz, from now on he won't be able to bash the 911 anymore in fear of having to sleep on the couch for critizising his wife's car SmileySmiley

    I think that is a very smart move, she won't appreciate the PCCBs and bump in power in her driving that much and 6 months is a long of time. Might as well enjoy it now.

    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

    NBerry buying a 911, even if it is for his wife, is an epiphany. I think his wife will have a hard time getting the keys. :)

    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

    Nick, Congrats to you and your wife.

    I cannot think of a better household to purchase a new Porsche.

    You really must thank the Cayennes engineers for  incorporating GPS based insturment sensors that "attract"

    the vehicle to stop by a Porsche dealership!  Such technology is just part of  the whole ownership experience and no doubt will lead to more future purchases.

    No matter the amount of good natured teasing, Im sure it will make a very attractive addition to your driveway.

    Strange coincidence. "My wife" over dinner tonight told me she's developed an interest in the GT3 RS!

    Hope you are enjoying all the good natured teasing. Rennteam making you walk the gauntlet is merely an act of "endearment." For numerous past "wrongful" comments. Smiley

    Back to car. *Assuming* this is really and truly (sorry this does not get old LOL) driven mostly by your wife, I actually think the car you bought is the better choice because S might be too much to handle especially if you hit the Sport button inadvertently,  and regular brake is a good idea as the PCCB brake does feel "funny" in the rain.

    Congrats Nick! (or congrats Nick's wife )

    Gorgeous car. The PCM2 is very nice too, and PDK is a perfect match for the TT...


    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

    Can someone clarify what this power output rating means in practice?

    530PS at 6.250-6.750 rpm

    Normally it is a figure at given revs e.g. 500 PS at 6.000 rpm

    My interpretation would be that it means that the maximun power, 530HP, is reached at 6.250rpm and maintained up to 6.750HP?

     Which would mean that the torque curve would have to be falling in a straight line directly in proportion with the rev increase between those two engine speeds. Weird. That surely was not achieved by accident.

    And... remarkably (coincidence IMHO, as dynos usually are all over the place), it appears csoule's chassis dyno of his 997.2 Turbo (posted here) mirrors this characteristic. The red curve below is that of the 997.2 Turbo:

    Re: New Turbo S presentation...

     Fritz, yesterday at the dealership as I was discussing matters with my rep. my wife was out front circling the white/beige turbo Cab. Every time we had a question we needed to bring her to discuss. She would then leave and go back to the Cab. Slowly it began to sink in with me she wanted the car NOW.

    Driving home she peppered me with question regarding the difference between the S we ordered and the car at the dealership. Each explanation I gave, she dismissed as minor.

    Finally, at home she said I really don't a valid reason to wait when the car I want is already at the dealership. When she decides she wants something, invariable it must be now. She is not easily deterred. If it was my decision, I would wait.

    Thus, she must pay the price for immediate ownership. In her defense I will say this. There was a consideration difference in price amounting to substantial savings.

     The car is home with its new owner; my wife and her companion who never leaves her side. I have not had an opportunity to drive the car for a decent report on it. However, my first impression is the car is as well built as any car I have ever purchased. I will report later on the performance.

    This must be a new form of spring viirus... my wife is having second thoughts about ordering a Cayman (on hold until we could drive the new version) and also wants to try a GT3.   Her thinking is that one of the things she has loved about her M Coupe for 8 years is that unique and howling S54 engine... and she is a bit worried that the Cayman is just too "sweet" and does not have enough bite.... will find out in early April as there is a slightly used GT3 nearby.  Smiley

    But back OT and another congrats Nick... if your wife really loves you she will share the car... Smiley

    Impeccable looks, classy style and strong personality just like her car.

    All the best
