Sadly I didn’t… I will get my coat.
See, chuck the coat get yourself an anorak and the differences will become clear!

Only joking lads, no offence intended :D

I got into my schlafrock , self-medicated with Japanese Whisky and all is good again.

@Wing, thanks for correction, as I slept better knowing that new 911 doesn’t have sloth-like eyes (fog lights)

:lol: To be honest, I have no idea when folks start talking about BMWs in code (E this and E that). ;) :P
I had an E61 and an E70

In my previous life I had E85, E92, F32, and at that point I changed religion 😵‍💫

This is a very appealing proposition, although my Mrs. once said, I can do stars… ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

3.08am?! Couldn’t sleep?

Wow! If the 992.2 really does offer the 4.0 naturally aspirated engine, that’ll be highly desirable, especially if it’s at a Carrera/Carrera T kind of price point, as opposed to being a GTS-only offering.

I think a lot depends on what happens with gearing. The 718 4.0 GTS's are so high gearer, that the upper rev range cannot be legally used in any gear other than 1st and possible 2nd. Maybe fine for Germany or track use but for Uk road use , some owners of the turbo 718's regret trading them in for a 4.0 GTS

Genuine question - why would you want to access the upper rev range while still remaining within the speed limit?? Surely this is just a waste of fuel?

I recently sold my 911 992 partly because on UK roads I could not use it’s performance to it’s full potential without exceeding speed limits. I like to be able to hear the engine but in order to do so I needed to be above about 4500 rpm.
I previously had various Boxsters and two Macans.
I sold of a lovely Boxster 981S and bought a 718GTS but didn’t keep it long as the engine really did sound naff and it suffered from slight turbo lag.
So now I’ve gone back to a really nice Boxster 981 GTS which sounds great and is actually more practical than the 911.
I’m starting to think that I shouldn’t have sold my Macan GTS though as it was a great car.

I hope that's a joke question!

You need to update your Porsche list in your signature, Salty. ;)
