I will share my no holds barred comments mate.
Driven the 997 and the 991. Hated the feeling. The front lifts up while accelerating. Its a weird weird feeling. The 991 improved that tremendously. But surprisingly my car feels slightly (just that bit more) better.
997 Turbo is very quick. But does not feel that special to command more than half a million.
But then again, its just my opinion. If you like it then go ahead heh heh biggrin.gif

Hated the feeling. The front lifts up while accelerating. Its a weird weird feeling.


You know, I get the same front-end floatiness on the Lotus Elise at high speeds, or hard acceleration.
This impacts steering, especially on slippery roads.

What's wrong with these R/R designs man?
They seem to be so obsessed with static F/R weight balance that they forget about kinematic balance, where the weight vector points backward on hard acceleration!

Heh... You answered your own ques.

RR was already wrong in the 1st place. Being Germans, they'd rather work with the problem than to avoid it.

That's the Porsche appeal. And don't forget the 911s were air-cooled till the 996 appeared.

My fave is still the 993... the last of the air-cooled widow makers. Nothing else sounds like an air-cooled Porsche.

Fast performance but sounds terrible

Unlike the Macan which uses an Audi 2.0L engine, the 2.0L in the 718 is from same engine block as the 911. Losing 2 cylinders from its Boxer engine, it sounds rather terrible being a Porsche. However, power is immense, especially in the 2.5... » Read More
