I can't speak to the 992, but on the 991.1, I thought the steering felt noticeably better (to me, for my preferences) without the PSP. I wouldn't order it if I was upgrading. Having said that it does...

Thank you for all the replies.

For those not familiar with weather here, we get plenty of days when the temps are in the upper 40s or 50s too, and even a few in the 60s. There are very few days...

Pacific Northwest 991 DD in the winter

Hi all,

I hate leaving the 991 in the garage in the winter, but I'm not sure how to DD it given PNW weather which is generally in the mid-30s to low-40s in winter, but frequently too warm for...

So I'm guessing I'm the only one who is shocked that an alfa romeo sedan with a regular automatic transmission is faster around the 'Ring than a 991.2 C2S?

So true, but I swear it's gotten worse over the last 10 years since I've been here. My favorite is the left-lane 50mph campers who seem to be out in force at any given time of day. I swear they're...

It does seem like I attract more than the normal share of merge blockers, bumper riders and general assholery in the PNW. I am reconsidering using it as a DD. Also had a freaking Civic SI try to race...

Have you driven a .1 recently?

I ask only because they do exactly the same thing in "Normal" mode, because the power really kicks in at 4K rpm. The big-T Turbo doesn't do that, it just goes (in...

Silly question - are you sure it's not sap droplets from trees? Does the texture feel raised (rather than lowered) where the marks are? This is a common problem here (washington state), so I thought...

I really enjoyed my 718S test drive too. It sounds different from the 3.4 but not neccesarily (IMHO) in a bad way. Apart from being very noticeably faster, it handles noticeably better, the steering...

Nice! :) I'm trying to decide between a 240i, an M3 and a Macan for days when I need more seats and/or luggage room. I was considering a Golf R, but they're impossible to get.

With due respect, you don't know what you're talking about. 600 HP at 10 RPM is literally no different than 600 HP at 10,000 RPM if the gearing is adjusted accordingly. HP = torque * rpm = power...
