..I was looking at that Contidrom laptime, And reading the comments, Does the Carrera S come with, Or have an option to come with Continental ForceContact Tyres? If those were the ones used? If it doesn't, the Laptime should be deleted, if not its all good.

This is my sixth 911.It is quite quick but I find myself driving the other Five more. The others are turbo s and GT3 and GT2.

It was even faster, but modified. After they had tested some springs, the fastest time it was able to reach was 1:26.90, with Bilstein B16 Damptronic.

I underestimated this car so much...

I did not expect so fast lap times.

@ Viking: I've known a lot of middle aged people who were in excellent shape, My dad was one, He was in the Navy, and an avid runner, even when he was in his 40s, he was the fastest man on his ship. The 911 is like that, it's been around for a long time and shows no sign of slowing down. It's a popular misconception that you reach your peak at the age of 25 and after that start slowing down, not true, I'm over 25, almost 30 and in better shape than I was at 25, I haven't reached my physical peak yet, I can actually outrun most high school athletes, playing touch football or tag with my church youth group, I can catch them, there are a couple who give me a good run for my money, but they don't have my agility.

@Shaggy I am aging much like the Porsche 911, faster and stronger than ever. Not really over the hill yet. :)

@ Mental: In America, we have a term for someone who's 50 years old or older, "over the hill". The Porsche 911 may be over the hill, but it sure doesn't look it! ;)

Doubtless, 2013 is the year of anniversaries. Not just Aston Martin is celebrating this year its centenary, and Lamborghini its 50th jubilee, But there is also another anniversary - Porsche 911 is 50 years old!

For 50 years 911 came in 7 generations and became a milestone of the auto industry. And to mark this date, Porsche, as always conservative, unveiled a tribute to the first 901 - 991 50 Years Edition.

Basically it is just the same Carrera S. But still, that car is unique. You can see it on 9th and 10th picture at the right column. Seems even exteriorly the anniversary doesn't differ from the basic Carrera S. But some of the details tell where is the difference. Firstly, 50th model offers original 'Fuchs' inspired rim design. Then, the rear vents are made of chrome. And there few hints on the original 901 in the interior... Seems I counted everything... ah and, of course, '50' badges are everywhere.

All that makes this car a desirable collector's item. 1963 units are going to be produced.

Except they never published any acceleration times over 200 kph, only the 400 m and 1000 m times.

If you watch carefully those 0-300 kph time are taken from the speedo-video, while the 0-100 and 0-200 times are real GPS-based numbers.

This was a pretty idiotic mash-up by the French.

No, There Not.

There tested by MotorSport Le Magazine D'Le AutoMobile Sportive, A French Automobile Magazine, they do Laptimes and acceleration tests.

Those are just speedo-times, no real Vbox-numbers.

Haha that's funny. Vbox says 7.38, but on the video it's 7.45...
  1 year ago
Im afraid the 7.37,9 its a fake time!! Use a stopwatch, its around 7.44.
I found out when I compared it to the Camaro LT1 7.41 lap, with 2 screens. The Camaro pulls away the whole lap. What ´s goin on here???

Wondering if anyone's knows figures for 991 4S? Car and driver tested it with 0-60 at 3.5sec vs 3.8sec for 991 S...

I dunno how many Carrera vs Carrera S are sold, but if seen more Carrers S then Base in my time, bu it doesnt make a point to make a base when the S is the one that gets the publication. I still maintain Porsche has the bset website, along with the best options list...however, if you fuly build the 911s, they can become double the price...i know, and it seems, that most of the buyers of a Non S Carrera, are younger then the buyers of the S.

The Cayman is also another viable object, How many Non S do you see> same with the Boxster, i dunno the sales of either car, but it seems, that the Base models are being outdone in almost every way.

Originally there was only the basic 911 Carrera with some specversions, but with the arrival of the 997 Carrera they managed to include the regular upgraded Carrera - S version. Since then it's being just a tradition. Indeed, now it looks useless. But still they will produce basics, though I don't see a benefit from that.

Oh, I can't wait till 991 Turbo and GT3 arrive to Detroit! Every next year Porsche is getting more and more idealistic. Actually a good strategy - to develop with a frugal steps. Otherwise, they could just ruin themselves.

I have to agree there. When you get up into the $80k+ price range, there's no point in having an "entry level" model, especially when buyers can get something so much better for "only" about $14k more. And I doubt that kind of difference matters to someone who's set on dropping nearly $100k on a car in the first place. And that's not even including Porsche's (in)famous option lists.

Plus, there's the Cayman S to think about. It has about 98% of the Carrera's performance, is $20k cheaper, and, according to many, is really an all-around better car.

Hm, this has actually got me curious about how many people actually buy base Carreras. What's the demographic for it? People who just want to say they've got a 911? Because anyone who cares about performance will go for the S version, if not a 4S or Turbo. Someone who just wants a Porsche period will likely go for the much cheaper Boxer or Cayman. So where does the base Carrera even fit in? Seriously, does anyone know?

...They should just stop making the Carrera all together, and juts make the Carrera S, this one gets all the press, all the coverage, all the laptimes, all the tests, all the buyers, i dont see much point in a Base Carrera if this one gets it all done, besides the 10k difference, same with the Boxster S.
