    Re: SF 90 Stradale is staggeringly fast and beautiful.

    we spoke with Walliser once about Tiretechnologies etc and how fast they were evolving - if a new Tire would be made for the 918 I am sure it would further improve  a lot. I dunno if you can just slap a Michelin R tire on it or if you could do much more if they would customize it again. I do not know what the latest is here but would be interesting from Whoopsy to understand what Porsche suggests to owners.

     

    Nein. Nadda. Zip. Nothing. Smiley

    The original OEM Cup 2 N0 was pure black magic. It was an ECO rated tire yet it didn't give up any, if at all, lateral grip. Nor longitudinal grip, seeing how hard it can launch a 4000lb pig from 0-60 in record time. The tire construction was completely customized for the 918.

    The Cup 2 N1, then the Cup 2 N2, have stickier compound, but honestly, not by much, if a 918 were to run on those the improvement would be fractional, if at all, as the side wall of those aren't tune to the 918. The N1 tires were tailored for the 991.1 GT3RS and the N2 for the .2. Cup R has the stickiest rubber compound on the surface, the first layer, but the constructions was again not tailored to the 918, it was for 911s. For acceleration purposes, it would surely helped however. As for as I can tell, no 918 owners have ever slapped a set of Cup Rs to theirs yet. Pretty sure Porsche did ran their factory car at Weissach with the Rs and already have data. Think it may not be satisfactory to them, hence no official certification from them for usage. Heck, they never certified the N1 or N2 for the 918 owners. Officially, we are still stuck with the ECO rated N0 tires.

    Don't really mind that, a 4000lb car running on ECO rated tires kept the 0-60 crowd fro 7+ years.Smiley

     

     

     sad that nobody picks this up when comparing times - bad journalism......

    Perhaps journalism became marketing long long time ago. It’s either product or political marketing. Any media which reaches a wide audience should be understood for what it is. 
    The individual YouTube bloggers with their comments and research while counting on views for revenue  can be more trusted in most cases.

    I don't know any car vblogger, but from my professional background I can tell some stories about how vbloggers/influencer are influenced. 

    Do you really think they are allowed to play with these luxurious gadgets for nothing in return? Or "buy" a limited edition car at gigantic conditions?

    I was mostly referring to news and stuff. Of course we can agree all sources need to taken with a grain sand salt whichever.  The phrase of the century is ‘follow the money’

    Nice drive!

    He uses "my line" when straddling the curb on turn 6.  I could gain many car lengths on traffic when straddling the curb there since I didn't have to lift throttle at all. Smiley

    Works the same in 991 GT3RS, 991 GT2RS, or Panamera Turbo!

    The lap time in bold makes no sense. Since when is > time = faster?  Maybe I should watch the video. Lol

    It’s the only street-legal production car on that list and supposedly the fastest in that category
