911T

I know thereís a thread elsewhere but Iím starting a new one, because look at this crazy brochure they were giving away at the dealer!

It is very comprehensive.

Anyone driven one yet? Why am I torturing myself?

You should drive one. And then tell us comparison with the 986.

I would but the local dealers don't have any. Or didn't when I looked last. Store down the road is awash in Panameras, though.

Ha ha yeah. But the spec sheet for it looks pretty compelling. I don't think anyone on this board would buy any other 911, at this point, short of a GT3.

Just curious how the turbo engine feels.

They don’t have any base 911’’s to test drive?

Would be tough decision for me since they are expensive and you lose the rear seats. Standard sport seats look pretty good with the contrasting stitching like the yellow one in the video.
