    WGA got a reaction from JV911 in 992 C2S lap times   
    So far I have spent two days in a 992 with Porsche at the Nordschleife and two days at the Porsche factory track at Leipzig and I can tell you it is a very, very competent car on track. Certainly not as quick as a GT3, but not that far away. Indeed, in a straight line and out of some corners, it’s quicker but does not brake as well or carry the same amount of corner speed as a GT3. As an all rounder, IMO, it’s unmatched. I am very much looking forward to the 992 GT3 and the GTS. Especially the latter which promises to be a weapon if the C2s is anything to go by.

    That’s a high price especially considering the kms. i would want know what country the car originates from. Originally a Singapore car or some other country?
    It has ceramic brakes so with 80,000 kms on the clock, I would want to have the discs measured to see how much life is left in them because a new set of rotors will cost you $20k+
    Besides all this, you will not be able to bring into OZ under the personal import scheme if you have not owned the car for 12 moths overseas and driven it 6,000kms. And even then, if it qualifies, you will have to pay 10% duty, 10% GST and 33% LCT on top of the $370K which means once landed, the car will owe you at least $470k making it completely unviable as a resale into the OZ market.  
    CTS recently had a 16,000km car for sale for $350K and it probably sold for much less so the starting price on the Singapore car is OTT.

    Ok, so if I understand it correctly, this is your car that you would import into OZ under your name and then resell. If so, it’s going to be a very hard sale to make especially with those kms, a new LSD required and potentially new rotors because if it has spent all it’s life in Singapore, 80,000kms of driving in constant stop start traffic would be roughly equal to 120,000kms+ of driving in Australia. So I would guess that the car is worth no more that 250K, at best, in the OZ market.

    Kyle Fortune will be penning the story so will be interesting to see what he ultimately writes but my personal views from the day were...
    There is no doubt about that the 997.1 is the better car but the 996 RS has 1000% more character. Its pretty much the last RS that retains the typical bobbing nose and you can almost steer the car on the throttle alone e.g. a small lift off results in understeer and the car drifting wide whereas the 997.1 nose is more pinned and less sensitive to throttle on/offs. As a result the 996 is more of challenge to drive but ultimately the more rewarding car.
    Another big difference is sound. The 997.1 was the beginning of valved exhausts and what is now regarded as “the Porsche sound”.  In comparison, the 996 is quite muted...as were all 911s pre-997. So while the 996 was preferred as the drivers car, the 997.1 was preferred for the sound and the theater.
