A thoughtful review. Not full of 'ga-ga' like most journalist car reviewers.

Yep, I agree. If anyone thinks that they aren't losing driver involvement in exchange for mind boggling performance in the TT c/w the NA Carreras they are sorely misinformed. Buying a TT for bragging rights is ridiculous IMHO. You'll still likely be slower than a C7 Z06(7).

I have a carrera S and I have learned not to trade my current Porsche in on the new one. If the turbo I ordered is not better than my S then it will be sold quickly. I found I did enjoy my Carrera S more than my 07 turbo. I had both at the same time for awhile.

The past water cooled Turbos have all been in the words of James May, "a gentleman's express" and the 991 Turbo seems to follow that path. But if you want to sport them up for track use it is easily done.
