next carrera s is said to be getting 421ps (autocar)

combine it with PDK &sport+ and my estimations would be

Max speed 310 km/h
0-100 km/h 3.7 seconds
0-160 km/h 7.9 seconds
0-200 km/h 12.1 seconds
0-300 km/h 48.6 seconds (better Aerodynamic's)
Quarter mile 11.5 seconds

and as usual they will be claiming a conservative 4.1 seconds to 62mph (for pdk with sport+)when the car first hit the show..

BUT being light as a 09 gt3 (1370kg) & only 14ps down the 2011 carrera s with PDK combined with SPORT+ will smoke the 09 gt3 in strait line..

Interesting that this car with Steve Sutcliffe at the wheel was slower around Millbrook than a 2.9 basic Porsche Boxter with Jason Plato at the wheel! Plato is a professional driver but Sutcliffe is pretty handy, so it just shows that you cant use the extra power on a winding circuit - Millbrook is a good approximation of an english b road..

If you cant afford it, and you want a Porsche, this will have too do.

The Porsche 911 is far more enjoyable to drive than the Nissan GTR. Hell the Porsche Cayman is more fun to drive. The G37?? LMFAO!!!!!!!! I think I\'d have more fun playing PS3 vs. driving a GTR. It\'s a freakin none driver involvement, robotic, passionless, driving appliance that makes grandma look like a hero. No thanks! Porsche all the way!!!

Nissan rules the japanese manufacterers with engineering that surpasses most european companies as well. I think i would take a G37s over this porsche but its a good effort.

997-Sport: I test drove the '09 PDK sport, and the new 'tranny is amazing!

I (still) prefer my '07 997-S manual for overall feel. "She's" been tricked out with Autothority chip and EVO hdrs/intake. My guess is around 380. hp, right near the new direct injection 3.8 'sport' engine's 385 hp.

A real driving experience, unlike any other in balance, response, everything!

Its a double clutch automated manual..... basically the same as the VW DSG or BMW DCT. One clutch is in use with the current gear while the other clutch is ready and waiting for the next gear so when the driver changes gear you get a seemless (and very fast) change. Its very fast technology as long as the software can predict which gear to have pre-selected..... if it guesses wrong it can take longer as it swaps to the requested gear..... eg cruising in 4th gear with foot on the gas the software will assume that the driver will want 5th gear next so will have that ready..... but if the driver actually wants to shift down to 3rd the 2nd clutch has to swap from 5th to 3rd before the gear change happens.
