Hmmm... something is cropping the end of the list in the first post...

What you're supposed to see is at the tail end is:

997.2 GT2 RS reviews

Instead it gets cropped, and you see what's captured in the attached image.

Have I hit some cap on the size of a given post?

Karl.

GRRR... the top post is still getting cropped at the end.

It looks fine when you preview, but a significant chunk at the end is getting lopped off.

Until a new site software update that fixes the post-size-limit is installed later this year, the Moderators suggested a work around of splitting the single large post into two separate ones.

So now the list is split between post #1 and #2, and it seems to be all there...

Karl.

As regards comparative lap times, both Motor Trend and Car and Driver have accumulated a large number of lap times at Laguna Seca and VIR respectively.

The attached tables show how the 997 models stack up against other Porsche models.

There's a classic Best Motoring International video review of the 997.1 Carrera and Carrera S. It's one that has come, but then gone from YouTube.

But I just stumbled across this version and at only 72 views in the past ~2½ years, has been hiding away in the deepest corner...
.
  • Best Motoring International - Group test with C2 & C2S Carreras (6MT) - YouTube
    • The test also included a Ferrari 360, 996 Turbo, Honda/Acura NSX-R and Nissan 350Z
    • Technical overview, an honest to goodness 5-lap race (with professional drivers), etc.
    • And we get to see Motoharu Kurosawa ('Gan-san') express a kimi-raikkonen-like statement the 5m10s mark Smile
    • Japanese language, with English voiceovers and subtitles
    • Unknown broadcast date

Very interesting reading thumbsup

Looking at those lap-time tables the most interesting thing for me is just how impressive the 991.1 Carrera S and 981.1S times are.

Here are the historical laptimes for Porsches (including the 997 models) over the years.

Motor Trend recently published their 2018 Best Driver's Car: https://www.motortrend.com/news/2018-best-drivers-car/

Added the latest results (including a sprinkling of laptimes for modern 'affordable' cars) to the Laguna Seca table. The 997 times are highlighted in grey.
