2016 Porsche 911 Carrera S review | evo DIARIES

A little tease of sorts... Not an apples to apples competitor to M4, but it is still fruit...



AND IT TASTES GOOD

I'm very interested to see if Porsche has solved the intake valve/carbon issue seen on so many DI turbos. Here's an interesting article about the new engine...

Me too, but I will never for the life of me wonder why P car is easier to say than Porsche

Awesome color, looks and sounds like a 911... what happened to the nifty center exhaust of the mules that were floating around?

The color is Miami Blue, it's kind a turquoise, I prefer Mexico Blue as it was one of the 993 signature colors...

My ex-wife also enjoyed turquoise as a color, so it would knock it off the list for me.

That is the sport exhaust...

It's an option that, along with the dual pipes, and a button on the dash to manually activate it (it is also activated by selecting SPORT PLUS), it adds solenoids to bypass some baffles, and tells the ECU to throw a little extra fuel on cutoff to induce cracks and pops. So louder, and sounds like someone is throwing out fireworks behind your car. It's kind of juvenile, but fun!

Good god that sounds phenomenal! Porsche and Merc seem to know how to tune a nice sounding turbo motor.

From what I've read so far, without getting a chance to drive one, the S model is as fast as the 991.1 turbo and the handling is even better. And considering the 991.1still hasn't been matched in handling this just makes the bar that much higher.

Car is gorgeous and that color is stunning.
