Having owned and sold or traded a C4S, 997tt, two subsequent turbo s, a gt3, and a gt2 rs, it was hope of “better next time” and some bullshit article like this that hooked me. 60 years later one still arrives in a 911 “half deaf and beaten up” or whatever the Clarkson quote is. In default settings the PDK 991 cars try to get into 7th gear at 30mph, requiring a long wake up call for ECU trans and turbos. And keep fresh rear tires on, too, for safety. PCNA policies are near criminal. Smarter and better informed folks than me have done some worry about VWs increasing influence on P. I do miss the steering feel of the base 997s, and If seeking a manual trans car, I’d have to grit my teeth look at the GTS. Makes me grin the NSX is so far ahead tech wise.
