  1. The everything 991 explained....with a simulated driving at the end..... http://www.porsche.com/usa/ Post your first impression and share what you think about the new 991...
  2. Yes I agree removing the alphabet soup from the back would be the first thing I would do on mine when I get one....I agree that a simple 911 or Carrera S would be much classier...I wouldnt go for 991 as this is the series number...just like I wouldnt put 997 on the back on mine. The car also looks more dynamic and the wheels even tho they are 19inch the ones you see on the red one above make the wheels look more they are 20...a good visual trompe l oeil as 19 inch generally feel and drive much better than 20....so having a wheel design that make the wheels look bigger than their 19 inch size w
  3. Overall the car looks more aggressive...both from the front and rear....the inside cabin has been refined a few notches with certain Panamera like elements while still keeping the dashboard somehow true to its 911 design legacy. Although Porsche makes the best use of every pony they include in the engine performance, I personally still think that both the regular and S 991's should have come with a little more HP....in my book I would have transferred those 385HP from the current 997S to the new 991...and gave lets say 435HP to the new 991S......perhaps 991.2..we shall see.... I have all the i
  4. Hi Loren... Thanks for re positioning my topic in the appropriate section...frankly I didn't even realize that a "News,Information and Rumors" section existed on our forum. Good to know now. Isnt it the video teaser a true teaser...!!!
  5. 2012 Porsche 9911 Carrera S Review, Specs, & Pictures It is no big secret that a redesigned seventh-generation 911 will appear in 2012. The 991 will premiere in 911 C2 and C2S forms, while the Turbo, C4, C4S, GTS, Black Edition, and 918 Spyder Edition variants continue in their current form for at least one more year. If history tells us anything about the future, which it always has a way of doing, the 991 will be available with all-wheel drive in 2013, Turbo and GT3 trims by 2014, and in GT2 guise by 2015, although Porsche may be pushing for an accelerated schedule. Some will mutter
  6. Hello fellows and Porsche lovers, The wait was brutal and the anticipation newsworthy. Porsche and Apple are somehow similar in their business dealing...they make you wait and wait and wait and let you search and speculate until the last minute...then they tease you...make you drool a little more before finally releasing the next product or update. For all of us Porsche owners and iphone users you can relate. Perhaps some of you may have already seen some newer images of the 991 that have been released in the last couple days or so on a variety of sites. Well...I wanted to share with my Pors
  7. But since I do not track my 997 and the car has been perfectly aligned...I guess I wont need the dog bone....I spoke again to TWC and they said that the alignment is a mechanical process...so if the car can be successfully aligned to factory specs after being lowered then the dog bone would not be necessary. They concurred that IF they would have not been able to bring the alignment to factory specs then yes a dog bone kit would have been the option. Thank you very much for your input Paul.
  8. Hi Everyone,... Hope all you my fellow 911 turbo owners can help me make a sound and smart decision. Indeed your advice and recommendation will make a difference and the unanimous answer will contribute to the purchase of one or the other turbo. 1= TURBO..... 2= TURBO S..... 3= TURBO CAB and.....4= TURBO S CAB. I currently own a beautiful 997 C4S with lots of options and dealer mods...the car is definitely a head turner but now I am seriously considering getting the jump into TURBO territory. The most important question is going for an regular coupe or is the S really can justify the price
  9. Is it a regular turbo or a turbo S you have?? The book is crazy. It reads something like 2K miles. I've always given my cars between 500-900 miles before really beating on them. I'm not sure if it makes any difference. I just focus on varying the revs. I go up to 3-4.5K and back down and back up (rinse and repeat : ). I never stay at any steady speed for an extended period of time. It helps to utilize the paddles because you have full control. I would not use the launch control until at least 500 miles. I'm going to play it really safe with this car, because of my large investment, and wai
  10. I did the rear light conversion, and obviously I had to change the rear bumper as well. I didnt do the front because I have a GT3 front bumper and love the look. If I can somehow have the front lights also converted to led without having to change the bumper,I would do it.
  11. Is the price of $2500-$3000 quoted for BOTH front and rear conversion??
  12. Hi Everyone, I have a 997 C4S that has been lowered (stock suspension) Champion springs. Unfortunately the Collection in Miami did not do an alignment. I realized that my back tires were getting worn out very quickly...In less than 10,000 miles I ran thru 2 sets of rear Michelin Pilot PS2's. During a visit to AWD Motorsport with a friend of mine, the shop put the car on a lift and and it was visible that once again the tires needed to be changed. They told me that because the 997 already have a negative camber to begin with, but lowering it and not aligning the car would accentuate more nega
  13. Hi TNC.......No the C4S and T4S dont come with a short shifter pre-installed. I have a 997 C4S and it did not come with a short shift, I had to buy one from Porsche and have them install it. Definitely a well worth it option. You go through the gears with less distance and more precision. Cheers... Porschester
