Nice data point! Thank you! This makes me want to weigh my Carrera with PCCB and not much else.

These cars are l-i-g-h-t for their exterior size as well as their 370-hp output, weighing less than...

Just remembered:

The hardest two types of drivers to pass on a back road here in CA—regardless of the power at your disposal—are 1) Prius drivers and 2) Harley riders. One is wide enough to make...

Man, this car takes me right back to Tenerife—to the first 991.2 Carrera I drove. Same spec, at least from this pic. Man, was that a fun drive up a close rally stage. That was the day I fell in love...

^ It's pretty good, and will be a home run for a lot of people. My take is that the "ultimate" combination is DSC plus an adjustable collar setup with the right straight-rate springs. Two vendors...

True and then some. The 991 GT2 RS makes the first Subaru Forester Turbo 5MT on its OE cast-with-the-alloys Bridgetone RE92s look downright socially irresponsible.
