    update on turbo S life

    I just did 2400 miles malibu-sundance-jackson and back.

    there is no substitute, the S  is rocket fast, you can pry a pass out of left lane morons stacked up LA to Vegas, or blow off an entire line up two lane carving. as someone said, light the bottle rocket and you are gone.

    after 4 GT2's and 8 stradales, scud, etc, I must say, this is the rig.

    we  [my Lab Sun] put the top down when cool or slow enough, did plenty of nasty dirt road, and lots of high speed

    there is no substitute


    Re: update on turbo S life

     Would love to see more pics 


    Re: update on turbo S life

    That's wonderful ... glad you had a great trip and that your car is fully meeting your expectations

    But c'mon man, you need to post some pics

    May I chime in here. Turbo S is the best sportscar I ever had, there's nothing I would change and knowing me that tells a lot. Smiley

    Nothing to complete. Turbo S is the best sport car and the best Porsche I ever had. The downside: you always get the feeling other cars are boring ;-) but thats subjective of course. Till now, after 12 months are 10.000 km on the odo (yes I know, not that much but due to the bad weather the last time I often used the X5) and not a single issue. The quality level of the 997 series seems to be at it's best. Therefore a good argument to buy the 997 at this times.

    Thst is a testament to real world usability.

    Re: update on turbo S life

    fits an 870 remington pump right across the back  [we were hiking in grizzly land],  gets full up easier than the older cars the blades on the seats and the windscreen cuts space.  on this trip i coulda left the windscreen home as top was up for high speed, and speeds were <50 with top down

    in 1994 we took TWO Labs and TWO people and TWO weeks crap in a 92 c2 cab up to MT, all over and WY back ranch road to 7D and Darwin Ranches.  that was when we decided to get a 500E, .....our first car w 4 doors

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: update on turbo S life

    Many thanks for the report and photos - also love the dog..

    Guess I'll now have to set my sights on a 991 Turbo S - whenever that arrives?
