He said it has nothing to do with people who upgrade their turbos to the X 51 package. Something about the factory didn't certify that specific engine with the EPA. They had to buy back a car they just sold. I wouldn't be surprised if the other eight cars are all Rennlisters given the market.

It's a 911, so keep the engine up on sizzle. It is very strong all the way to 7500 redline, so you won't be disappointed. I drove my 991.1 C2S this way and loved it. I now drive MY 991.2 X51 C2S the same way and love it a whole lot mire. The magazines have it at 3.0 sec 0-60 and 11.3 isec n the quarter mile. Yesterday at an Autobahn Country Club track event sponsored by my Porsche dealer, a 991.2 GTS driver came up to me afterwards at happy hour and said he had trouble keeping up with me on the straights. Nuff said.
He should have trouble keeping up with you. You both have the same power and he has more aerodynamic drag with his wider rear fenders.

And I think he is also a bit heavier with the wider rump and the bit of extra weight.
