Flicking through my car mags I can't help but notice how the Porsche 911 has fallen from favour. Its less than 5 years since the 997 Carrera 2 S was launched. This car won every test going, but since then it all seems to have gone down hill. The Nissan GT-R seems to have really rained on Porsche's parade, eating the Turbo for about 60% of the price and the AUDI R8 has gobbled up the lower models.
Should Porsche have just left the 997 Carrera S alone and not meddled with it last year? Is the 997 really old hat, or is it just motoring press fickleness gone mad?
