Ok this post is NOT really about comparing the roads, it's more about my less then stellar experience with my recent purchase. I picked up the car in Stuttgart a beautiful 991 S silverGT, drove it around Europe and then waited for ever for it to get to the US. Immediately after getting it in the US I declared the roads in the US as ****. Nothing comparable to the great roads in Germany, Switzerland, Italy (yeah right!) and Austria. Long story short, Porsche Stevens Creek forgot to remove the suspension restraint on my car upon receiving it the US, the handed it over to me, I was extremely excited to drive it... However it turn out the roads are great in California (if you have a full suspension setup). This I found out once my shop RMG in Sunnyvale took a look at my car. It is just sad to have such an experience. The dealer is taking responsibility and has the car at the moment, my question/rant is : should I be worried about the impact on the car (drove it around 3k miles) I could feel any fly on the road and it felt like I was going over a wall, it was not until I drove my 986 and despite the sport suspension on it, it feel glorious compared to my brand new 991, yes different cars but imagine driving with no travel on the front suspension... Anyway I got a 912E and the thing is 40 years old and it felt better on the roads and bumps. I hope you guys/gals can give me some advise on this matter. After some conversations with my mechanic, I started to understand the safety concern around this matter. I had friends, family and my son with me, sometimes driving like a Porsche should be driven, thank god nothing happened. Anyway. Any comment is welcome.
