Hello all,

Long time no see... Just moved back from the UAE and thought I would treat myself to a new 911. I was planning to buy a 992 but, by the time I added the spec I wanted, it quickly got out of control to over £125k! So I plan to wait out for the 992 GTS.

In the mean time, I picked up this new 991.2 GTS at a nice discount.

Hope to see you at one of the meets soon.

Tom

Thanks very much. Yep, I think this has replaced Agate as my favourite colour.

It will do until the new 992GTS arrives....

I know right?

All joking aside, this is quite the upgrade from my 991.1. It feels a lot faster, if only it was a bit louder.....

Thats a thing of beauty. That’s got me excited, I pick mine up tomorrow from storage for 4 days. Wish the weather was going to be the same as last weekend, but I guess that’d be asking for too much. Got quite a few drives planned though, and expect to put another 600 or so miles on it. Can’t wait... Grin

Fabulous car but that's the point the 991.1 has more oomph & sound 3.8 aside to a 3.0 I love them all but my choice would be a 991.1 GTS whilst waiting for a 992 only an opinion, great colour though.

Yes great car, some very serious power. I would guess it would give a 991.1 a run for its money in terms of power deliver on a track. However, it is not in any way a match for the noise and low speed thrill of a 991.1.

I have now set about figuring out how I get more noise out of the engine and have started to look at a Remus back box. I am hopeful this will give it a little of extra noise!

Other than that, its an epic car!

How so? Be interested to hear your comparison between the NA .1 and the Turbo .2 engines.

That is a great question. There are two things for me really, the noise and how fast you need to go to enjoy the experience. The NA engine is just amazing, the noise, the vibrations, the overall feel. The 991.2 is no doubt faster than the 991.1 but you get the fun factor much higher up the rev range and, as a result you hit legal limits much sooner. I just think that you might have more fun in the 991.1 because it's a bit slower. Objectively the 991.2 is a better car, it has some great design touches, the update the look, the gear box feels a little faster, the telematics are a little better and as I said, it is crazy fast. But early on, (and I have only had it 2 months) it hasn't worked its magic yet like my 991.1GTS did.

That said, it requires a very slightly different style of driving to an NA car. You need to keep revs high if you want the pickup from the engine.

Let's see what a change of back box will bring, the Remus has some good reviews...

Actually, when you look at the figures there is little in it between the Carrera and GTS Gen 1's! But the GTS gen 2 is obviously in a whole different league in pure speed terms!

e.g. A Carrera S 1st gen with PDK and SC is often quoted as 3.9 to 60, 8.8 to 100 and 188mph flat out.
The equivalent 2nd gen C2S delivers 3.7 to 60, 8.5 to 100 and 191mph flat out.

Then look at the GTS versions:
991.1 = 3.8 to 60, 8.4 to 100 and 190mph
991.2 = 3.4 to 60, 7.5 to 100 and 194mph

I hope the Remus works as you should then have speed and sound .....

Good morning all. So I thought I would write a quick up date on my 991.2. I haven't installed the back box yet, (still planning on a Remus), but the car is growing on me. It has just hit 1400 miles, not had much time in it since March, but the last few drives were really good and definitely brought a smile to my face.

Lovely car. The blue really suits it ! worship

The 991.1 NA engines defo sound slightly better than the 991.2 turbo ones. In unison the 991.2 with PSE do sound great though, but when compared to the NA engines in the 991.1 ( side by side ) there is no comparison. Especially through a tunnel ! A cheeky exhaust and muffler delete must surely liven up the sound of the turbo cars !?!..Don't get me started on the 992, where is the sound on those !

My cousin has the 991.2 GTS4 and off the lights between mine and his there really is very little in the cars to within legal speed limits, ( considering he has the best part of 50PS more, but has the targa so will be a weight deficit ). Both cars reach 0-60 in circa 4 secs. Where the turbo engine really shows its might is out of slower corners where the turbo cars get a real punch out of the corner and at the top end where the extra torque really comes into play. There is no doubt the extra torque from the .2 turbo cars does make them feel a lot faster when you bum is in the seat and point to point when the turbo kicks in and this all helps to provides a huge punch compared to the .1 NA cars. ( not that the NA cars are slow, the power is just delivered in a different way ). So in some ways the newer .2 turbo cars are more usable with the additional torque, especially for overtaking.

But there is something about the NA cars that I am enjoying that allows you to have a huge smile on your face at slightly slower speeds. So I agree with @findtom with his comment. For me its one of the reasons I moved from my previous turbo based cars to this one.

Either way you can't go wrong with a 911 in my eyes ! I bet you are pleased to be back in one !

Looking forward to your thoughts on the exhaust !
