No indicators in this 911R to save even more weight Grin

Paul, even though it's legal to do 300k on the Autobahn....you still have to have huge gonads to do it......especially with caravans pulling out like that doing maybe 100 KPH..... Surprised wouldn't mind having a go o the track though... Thumb

The trouble is that you can't do 200 mph on any UK track. Tuned 911s can do it on runways but I bet a stock 911R (or any stock 911) couldn't.

It's why I love Autobahns - not that I'd ever have the bottle to do 200 mph or even to V-Max mine - where 150 mph in any 911 is easily do-able.

As can be seen in that video, above 150 things really start to happen quickly.

Once managed an indicated 332 on my dash when on a late night run from Munich to Nuremberg - crazy fast and really quite frightening how quickly you close on apparently distant traffic Surprised

Anything up to 170 in old money feels relatively calm and controlled but those last 30 or so does strange things to your bowels... Embarassed

Holy cow, things were seriously flying when he was nudging 200. I was holding my breath.

And changing up at 9000rpm..... love it.

2010 Porsche 997 GT3 RS

Those two lane derestricted Autobahn sections are a lot of fun for speed
chasers....but, my goodness you do have to plan your runs meticulously.
It's relatively easy to get up to 175mph, but the extra 15% he attains takes
some doing, but that 'R' is seriously slippery, so he does get up there really
quickly. Cool

Ps, hands if you'd like one too ! FYI Clap

Is this coming from 'two camps' Nick Wink

Although it is of course true.

I think you become 'tuned' to those intending on pulling out. Even my wife calls dangers ahead when at speed ie those looking to pull out. The dangerous ones are not so much the person travelling at speed but the 'Sunday driver' who fails to mirror, signal and then manoeuvre. I would have possibly called them 'Trumpers' but as he has now become a superpower leader I shall refrain.

Clutch, brake & accelerator pedals...for 'that interactive driving experience'.
PDK & Auto...for traffic jams and town driving, and that's it. Grin
