Re: Best non-Porsche engine

The same engine in our M135i it's an absolute cracker. Almost the same engine as in my old E46 M3 but with turbo added. BMW straight sixes superb! Your M135i (if the 2012+ era F2* model) was a single turbo cheaper version called N55. Still amazing and actually less potential issues. The E46 M3 you ...

Re: Best non-Porsche engine

What was/is your best non-Porsche engine? Let’s assume that since Macan has a Porsche-tweaked engine, it is classified as Porsche. My best engine was 3.0L straight-6, twin-turbo motor, mounted in a BMW 435i What was/is yours? That was the N54, which was amazing and won engin eof the year several ti...

Re: Looking to buy a 911

There are plenty of 992's, but those are still very expensive. Yes 992s are very expensive. The well specced 991.1 and 991.2s are selling fast! That really does look like why they’re shifting, due to the gulf in 991/2 prices! 991 are still seen as nearly new and very modern, as it only seems like y...

Re: Looking to buy a 911

Cheers WingCo :D I do like the idea of the PCCB for the public road handling advantages, but I really do think they are too risky for me. The repeatable stopping from high speed on track is also impressive, but the steels are also amazing with some more suitable pads and fluid. Some track enthusias...

Re: Looking to buy a 911

Those two cars both look really great! More generally regarding the choices...... 991.1 has the classic 911 sound, which is amazing! The steering was widely criticised though, as Porsche’s 1st stab at an electric system. That, combined with 4wd makes this possibly the least enjoyable 911 to pilot :...

Re: Looking to buy a 911

+1. That’s the best post I’ve read in ages, Red5, both on here and on the Rennlist 991 forum. I’m a big Porsche fan, but your technical knowledge is impressive! :) Agree with Nick on the badly damaged wheels on cars with PCCBs, especially since front discs are now 410mm! Cheers WingCo :D I do like ...

Re: Converting to the Mk2 look..

I hate the new Kia rear lights. The original Macan lights are one of the most nicely styled parts of the car. They are unmistakably Porsche, slightly reminiscent of 928/911 shapes. I guess somebody will do this at some point, but it’ll be a bigger job than it first looks...... Strip loads of interio...
