Nuts on the road

If you've ever driven the 911 Turbo, then you'd know that what he was saying was true - the 996s are very "boaty" (excuse the pun ;)), so I can see where he is coming from.

It's the same with the E46 M3 compared to the E92 M3 - the E46 is not as fast, but it is more driver orientated (IMO). The E92 seems to WANT to sit at 100mph everywhere and I can easily get away with cruising at much higher speeds without she who must be obeyed noticing (because it doesn't FEEL fast, despite the speedo saying otherwise).

IMO, this is BAD, as you have to be doing much higher speeds to have fun.

I'd rather drive the Cossie (for short journeys), as it's much more a sense of occasion. Obviously for long journeys with all the family in tow, then the M3 is the far superior car, but just not as much of an adventure - and I suspect is what Dan was trying to get across :).

Nordschleife - there's only two barriers to worry about - the ones on the left and the ones on the right!

So we want cars with no sound insulation?

How about not having a sig at all?

Someone needs to tell Pistonheads that Clarkson covered deliberate nonsense controversial automotive journalism over 15 years ago.

There's no replacement for displacement

My car has more sound deadening than a standard car ;) :p. However, this is still insufficient to drown out the noise of the straight cut gearbox :lol:.

I hated the 996 Turbo I drove (even with full Manthay racing KW suspension and 520bhp), so God knows what a standard car must be like :lol:.

However, I loved the completely bog standard 997 GT3 RS. I prefer my "fun" cars to be a bit more focused than an every day car. Unsurprisingly, it is horses for courses ;).

Not if that power comes with more weight, so the power to weight ratio has hardly improved :p ;).

996T was certainly one of the most impressive ways to go very fast very easily. Impressive does not equal fun though.

They're designed for rock solid stability on the autobahn not for B-road entertainment.

This is exactly my experience. I loved my E92 but was it any more fun than my E46, no and sometimes less so. To be honest I had as much fun in my WRX.

I've driven a 997 Turbo S a few times and it is insanely fast. You're already passing 150 when an average hot hatch is hitting 100 and the thing is still pulling like a train. Other than during hard acceleration it doesn't feel as fast as it's going though so it all becomes a bit pointless IMO.

I've also driven a GT3 RS 3.8 and for a fun drive it beats the Turbo hands down. Drive any distance on boring roads though and you'd rather be in the turbo as it is a very civilized place to be. A 911 Turbo Cab makes even less sense.
