As for the lap times, that fits right into the whole manual vs auto argument. Faster is not always better.
You guys are missing the point.

Typically with cars, when they get larger they also gain weight. This is NOT the case with the 991. They increased the size/wheel base and dropped about 250lbs from the car. That's unheard of. As I said before, lux barge not found. They improved handling added power and lost a huge amount of weight.......how can you complain?

Regarding the link. Yes the 991 is physically larger........but it weighs the same amount as the 993 despite being forced to meet tons of safety regulations that the 993 didn't need to. Remove those regulations and the 991 would lose a TON of weight.

Every other company is gaining weight. Ferrari etc are all putting on 300lbs+, the 458 is a pig compared to the 991. Porsche is the only one focused on cutting weight while adding power.

I wish Subaru would follow this idea, instead the STi continues to gain weight, become soft and see no increase in power over 10yrs......that's just sad. Talk about a lux barge.....STi fits that minus the lux.
