Hi folks,

I've assembled a list of professional reviews (magazines, etc.) of various 997.1 and 997.2 models.

If the tests included their own independent performance tests (not just repeating the official numbers from Porsche), I added them to the attached tables.

I'm sure I've missed some reviews. So if you know of any professional reviews that should be added, please share (including the link), and I'll update this post accordingly.

Thanks everyone, more a labour of love. Now where did I put my anorak?

Speaking of which...

If anyone has any saved reviews they would recommend that's not captured in the list above, please share here on this thread and I'll update the top post.

The only thing I ask is that it be a 'professional' review, i.e. by someone or some-organization that does reviews on a regular basis.

On the flip side, if you come across a dead-link in the list above, please flag that as well. I've seen articles disappear over the years (Autocar and Road & Track were particularly egregious in this regard). So if one isn't working anymore, please let us know.

Thanks.

Karl.
