W211 E55 VS 996TT


Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to the club, and here are some W211 E55 buddies around me, they were surprised with the 996TT spec, yes on the paper it is better than E55, but what I have now is a tip, and they are starting to modify theirs after I have my first Porsche, what do you guys think about theirs compares to ours 996TT? :thankyou:

I'll start with the obvious: One is a passenger sedan, the other is a purpose-built sports car. Apples and oranges, really. I assume you're asking us to provide counterpoints for the next bench race. I'll say this: 'Tis not the tools you bring, it's how you use them.

Both are fantastic machines. The Merc is not designed for track duty, it's a high-speed high-torque Q-ship designed to embarass most sports cars in a straight line. The Turbo is the ultimate GT 911, and is at home on open road and racetrack. One holds more passengers, has a softer ride, and a trunk for stowing lots of goods; the other handles better, stops faster and is relatively small and light. If your buddies are savvy, they may own the Variant with its fantastic cargo space and rearward-facing seat.

I humbly suggest that you invite your friends to join you at a high-performance driving school (HPDE) weekend that's open to all makes. You'll all be grinning so hard ear-to-ear that you'll forget all about the nuances of which car is faster in a straight line, or which responds more kindly to throwing absurd amounts of money at torque and horsepower improvements at the expense of balance and reliability.

All the best!

Mark
