I don't think, the Carrera S can do 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. It's just not realistic.
The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS 991 facelift can do 0-100 km/h in 3.4 sec.
So why would be the no AWD Carrera S 992 almost
two-tenths of a second quicker than the GTS? Otherwise, it's not impossible, but not feasible.

It can. The latest porche 911's actually got a lot of changes, including the removal of the manual, and changing it to a PDK. This is one thing that helps transmission-wise.

"I don't think, the Carrera S can do 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds." You're right it can't do it in 3.2 sec unless you use roll-out in which case it can and therein lies the question roll-out or no roll-out? The Americans use it but the Europeans don't...

Americans don’t use 0-100kph. That stat was from an European test.

The last 991.1 GTS with RWD only did 3.4s too.

All these cars have the power to do 0-100kph in 3s. It’s just a matter of hooking up the car for its initial launch phase. Then it becomes power to weight. The RWD model weighs less and has less drivetrain losses.

Yes i'm aware that muricans use imperial measurements. The issue i have is that the 3.2 sec isn't backed up by other testers as these examples show.

Auto Bild Sportscars 3.2
Motorsport 3.3 +0.1
Auto Bild Sportscars 8/2019 3.3 +0.1
Sport Auto France 3.4 +0.2
Automobilismo 3.4 +0.2
Volkswagen AG 3.5 +0.3
Sport Auto 3.6 +0.4
Auto Motor und Sport 3.6 +0.4

To suggest that every Carrera S can do 3.2 sec is ludicrous. Acceleration figures will always be controversial for a myriad of reasons but i do prefer Motortrend's method where they use correction figures ie. sea level to level the playing field and roll-out to bring it in line with dragstrip times which is where the 1/4 mile concept originated.

Motortrend were always good at getting the best out of every car in reasonable conditions. Like the Hellcats, only they realized it was faster to launch in 2nd gear. Or that In some cars it’s faster to not use launch control
