    Re: What do you guys like most about your turbo?

    What I like:

    It is a "point and shoot" car. IOW, It has the HP/tq Porsches should have as road cars.

    Exhaust sound is discrete; does not betray your _frisky_ driving which would otherwise sound "wreckless and dangerous" to witnesses.

    Stock wheels color scheme FINALLY makes non-PCCB brake dust "impossible" to notice.

    That's about it.


    What do you guys like most about your turbo?

    Thought we have a opposite thread on the positve aspects of turbo ownership:

    -911 on steroids..the hp is incredible.
    -After suspension is done car handles incredible.
    -Service at my porsche dealership is stellar.
    -4 seats
    -Built like a rock, don't worry much about quality control.
    -uniqueness all 911's are never built the same. The R8's all look the same.

    I agree with everything you said except the last item.
    Sure there are many 911s that are custom specced -especially here on rennteam, but the majority of them -even if custom ordered - are very plain and cookie cutter.

    Honestly, not many people (even enthusiasts) are going to notice that someone ordered their fuse box with leather, or another obscure option. These things may make the car "unique" but as only about unique as a "special" edition that they made 2000 of.

    The convoluted nature of the options list also deters some people from speccing something really special - but I'm sure how quickly option costs escalate plays into that as well.

    Ironically you compared the car to the R8, which is produced in much smaller quantities than the 911... and quality wise is VERY much on par with Porsche - hell, the interiors are much better built - when comparing base specs. AND, unlike the Turbo/GT2/GT3, the R8 is a unique chassis that is not related to "volume" models.

    I'd take a solid 911 any day, but when it comes to exclusivity and REAL quality/bespoke build/etc... there are other manufacturers that do it better.
