An impressive excample of the potential of a base 3.4 Carrera with the -20 sport suspention and PDK / PTV diff

And low weight also helps acceleration.

Dag  4y ago

Fast standing kilometer because:

Launch control and fast PDK shifting
Good grip because of rear engine
Small frontal area gives low wind resistance
Official 0-200 with PDK and sport+ is 15,4 seconds. It can probably get close too 15,0, since it has tested 9,4 0-160, official number is 9,7.

cfd  4y ago

how could it be so much faster ot standing km compared to e93 m3 (23.3-23.5sec)? it has same 0-100, slower 0-160 and 0-200 and less bhp/weight... just doesn't make sense. please someone explain

That explains the slow laptime, car should be good for low to mid 1.11 laps with all the extras.

The Hockenheim laptime is a manual, but is it sport PASM on the car? Time actually seems slow, wonder about the spec of the testcar.

Stock Carrera. No Ceramic brakes, no PASM, no PDK, no torque vectoring.

Looks like a very standard car, since no sports exhaust if you look at the cover.

With PDK and Sport Chrono+ my guess is right below 15 seconds 0-200. Porsche says 15.4 in the handbook, but because it does 9.4 0-160 (tested in Italian AUTO)and handbook says 9.7 it would probably squeeze under 15 seconds.

The problem is that many tests are done with manual box, and numbers are quite different than PDK with Sport+ mode.

Cheese, that sounds toooo slow! It surely must be below 15.0 s! I wonder how AMS usually gets so slow results.

Unlike most of the magazines, AMS tests with 2 persons onboard. Just like Sport Auto.

Btw. Sport Auto: they will compare the very same 911 Carrera against the new M6 in their next issue.

Hello,

a full lap is impossible for normal people, the long straight is closed during tourist driving.Based on the Ballacco time difference (1.15 seconds in almost 3 minutes)my guess is 4-6 seconds difference at the Ring.

Dag: great videos but (as you point out clearly) they are not full laps, any chance of you doing a full one? The Porsche video for the C2S is a full-lap @ 7:37.9 is about 18 seconds faster than the 3.4. Cannot argue with the value for money of the 3.4 C2 though but as in everything motorsport, those 18 seconds of extra speed are probably 1500 euros each....

Here is my 7.46 BTG lap at the Nürburgring:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk0unOEtqZk&feature=plcp
My guess is below 7.45 sport auto lap (20600 meters) with a pro driver.

SportAuto got 1:10.4 for the 991 Carrera S with those hidden semislick 'PZero'.
A terrible 1:46 resulted in the wet handling.

The time (1:10,40) is for "Hockenhein Short" not for "Hockenheim GP" as listet. Please change.
