I own a 991.2 and have no stake in the game. It's kinda funny though to read the complaints. When the turbo 4 was released, there was a huge outcry. People complained that despite the fact that it...

Agree. I own a C4, so I will be perceived as being biased, but there is no data to suggest that a C4 will hold its value any better or worse than a C4S. There are so many permutations of these cars,...

Agreed. It's not just Porsche focus groups. I went back to a Rennlist poll from a few years ago. When 991 owners were asked if they used fully automatic mode or shifted manually, the majority of...

As someone above mentioned, there's no way you'll be able to balance the tire properly with the glue in there. Tire techs balance the tire with GRAMS of added weight to the periphery of the wheel....
