But I thought the non-Turbo-turbo was what gave smiles while the big-T-Turbo-turbo was too clinical and lacking in emotion (far left...)

Queue jokes about RMS, IMS, and improper test drives.

And with that: IB4TM (to the abyss.)

I have this mental picture now of Captain Kirk unable to decide between Orion Slave Girls.

Which one's the Turbo?
You absolutely understand me Worf!!!!! Lol.

I am sure all of them are "Turbo" Have to "meet" them all individually and all at once many times to properly to figure which one is the real turbo.

Decisions Decisions....

I am glad that I created this thread - This thread introduced me to a very specific Porsche Driving Experience. I will have rock solid idea once I do the 911 Turbo vs Gt3 Porsche Driving Experience...in April

Great choice to be making. I'd echo that certainly in London people don't know the difference between a 30k Porsche and a 130k Porsche.

and the few that do think the 130k one is great!

Cool

I drove both for aprox. 30 min. back to back on high way and twisty back roads. Fully loaded Carrera 4S was a lot of fun but Turbo S Cab put a big grin on my face all the time. Went for a (debaged) Turbo S Cab so I will never doubt myself if if should have chosen the proper Turbo.

If I was doing ED it would certainly give my wife a vacation. No such luck for her, though. All systems still go...

I love my 991.1 C2S that in comparison is a stripper at a 137K 2012.5 MSRP... and got it because my last car had too much power. Then I thought maybe just too much for the chassis of the last car... then I thought well chassis + RWD.... AWD may be acceptable.... then started reading threads like this.... then saw Top Gear UK 911TTS VS Huracan.... D@mn you people.

Hey. I drive my 911 backwards so that I can pretend its the new 928 with fewer cylinders. That and I didn't figure pedantry into what I assumed would follow.

That was good. I cringed though, when Joey mashed the hood on CH's head hard-enough that I thought it would bend.

Have we hijacked Captain Kirk's thread thoroughly enough yet?

I am enjoying this thread and is very insightful, and no this thread is not hijacked at all.

Truth be know, the wife got me into the P-Car world after she got a 981 Boxster-S. It is such a great car to drive, I would take it out whatever chance I had. I was an MB man until I drove that car. But the Box-S did not get me noticed by women, which in my case is not abnormal at all, but I did get waves and honks from very tidy and smartly dressed young men for some reason??

So to assert my manhood I had no choice but to get myself a 991.2 TTS. Still no women attention, which is fine as I am a happily married old grey hair dude and plan on remaining so. However, I can now go fast enough to get away from any of the young men.

On the serious side, I have driven the NA GTS-4S on a few European Vacations in the last few years, with the Porsche Travel Club. A super great car, with a wonderfull sound and more than enough power for regular use. I still say TT, but no wrong choice here.

Cheers
