By SIX whole pounds.

A frog eyed 996 Carrera weighs in at 2904 lb. A lightweight, raw, narrow 911 for Subaru WRX prices. Seems more appealing by the day.

Didn't know about the planned takeover. Imagine if it had worked. We'd get a drift happy rear engine jetta, just to hook people on RWD for life.

I still think Peter Schutz is the greatest hero...

The flat six does have more rattle to it than most engines. I love it.

Like Pete, I've never met a flat six I didn't enjoy.

There may come a time when we reminisce about the 992 or 992.2 as the 'last true 911,' before the invasion of EVs, and the death of the MT/Flat 6 combo that has carried this car to greatness...

Awesome buy.

I usually put a 1.5l water bottle between my left leg and the door for long trips.
For a manual 992 I'd remove the cup holder and use my current system.

NUMB. That's the first thing that comes to mind. You can't feel the contact patches, the engine is a droning monotone supplemented with fake engine noise through the speakers. The steering is dead.

The E90 is a wholly different car than the crap that succeeded it. The steering is alive, an 8300 RPM 4.0 V8 provides motivation. With individual throttle bodies.

That happens to be the last year of the E90 sedan. Coincidence?

The E90 was fun... a lot of fun. The F30 felt like a 1992 Cadillac. Too much 'lifestyle brand,' not enough sport.

This would not be particularly hard. Applying the VE of the GT3RS engine to 3.0L yields ~390 HP, so a 340 HP 3.0 would be fairly trivial given the lower piston speeds. New tech like jet or...
