Stock

here

like four hundred and eighty, so stock, yeah, for 80 horsepower. Now if you get the chronograph option, you get an extra 50 pound-feet of torque when you hit the sport button right so you can hit five hundred pound-feet of torque and you definitely round out this little thing, which is a 3.6-liter twin-cylinder engine.

turbo

flat 6 yes, the last of the Metzger engines that Porsche manufactured. Well, this is one from Phil. He has another cool car. We'll have to address it another time. This is essentially the daily driver of it when the weather is nice and you have this. just over a year now and how it's been, it's been absolutely fantastic, it's been completely reliable, as reliable as you would expect a daily driver to be and in fact I drove this daily for the first nine months because I couldn't afford a second car.

At that time I drove it all winter and in all kinds of different road conditions and it never missed a beat and never let me down. I couldn't be happier to have not only a Porsche Turbo but a car that runs so well. It's been great in that regard, how many miles have you put on this so we have about 49,000 miles on it, we could actually cross 50k today and you bought it with I bought it with 38,000 miles. Wow, I mean, it's a daily driver, right? I had some maintenance in that period of time or zip and when I bought the car the accumulator and the master cylinder went out, it's a manual transmission so those are things you know, yeah you have that moment where they go out and everything.
What I did was replace the rear rotors and pads and I had to replace the coolant line which is one of the most notorious repairs on engines okay that was it and you work on a lot of things yourself everything you don't requires an uprising. do it myself, that's awesome, so yeah, better yet, I mean, okay, so I had an Audi, right? It was known to be difficult, like getting your hands inside or being able to work on it was impossible without taking everything apart. Is this twist in terms of how to get into it? It's a German car.
Yes, it has the engine hidden in the back, but there are many things you can access without removing too many things, for example an intercooler kit. I'll put it up soon. I can do it all myself, it will just take a little work because I have to remove the rear bumper, the car lights the rear wheels well, the fender, but it's nothing that requires too much mechanics. tilt, if you can operate basic hand tools, you can knock this out, that's awesome, okay, so the 480 horsepower and the 500 pound-feet of torque or well, this thing is original now, this thing It's just a slightly polished part.
There are a few things done to this that make it pretty impressive. You want to get into some of the things you've done. It's not too dramatic at this point, but it has a very light melody. We didn't have a chance to get it. on the dyno, but estimated around 550 horsepower at the wheels. Wow, okay, that's a drastic improvement, that's a drastic improvement, yes, and it's very noticeable on the stock, so this one is twin

turbo

. What are the torque numbers like, the torque numbers typically with turbos and Porsches just from what I've seen, I'm not an expert, is that they are relatively close to the power output.
Wow, I mean this has a curb weight of 3500 pounds, there's 600 pounds or so, which is a bit of a weight reduction, yeah. I've done some cylinder head, so that's a lot, that's a lot of power, that's a lot of power to now put a good power-to-weight ratio. A couple more things I've done to really improve it first thing. I made the suspension very light for the moment. I'm not sure who I want to use, but something as simple as wheel spacers, I don't really push the wheelbase, so now I've heard conflicting things about it. wheel spacers some people will swear by you should never change your wheels leave the ones that are there because fit becomes a problem have you had any problems?
It had no adjustment. I've done everything recommended by authorized racing teams and acceptable parts manufacturers that actually make things for Porsche racing teams and all that information is easily accessible. Spacers designed by these Porsche approved racing teams, so you know you're going to get good results, animal, and voila, you've got an exhaust, you've got other stuff. Do you want to talk a little about that, sure, yes, I make the neighbors angry every day. I plugged it right in and put solid motor mounts on it, which gets great response from the machine, okay? and just a carbon fiber air box to fix the engine and will also help support later modifications as they come, all the carbon fiber around here is very tasteful.
I love your shape, yes, that's what it looks like. Until I saw it in person, I was a little skeptical, but it seems. oh it looks so good it's cool and it's funny how I knew the wing came with the car but if you press the spoiler button the wing goes up 2 and 3/4 inches higher than the original ok I was one from The other things I didn't mention, one of the first things that failed on this car was this self-sealed hydraulic unit that pushes the wing up and takes you to 75 miles an hour and it's very expensive to fix, luckily I think the Ren kit it's a rental kit from the company, they make a conversion kit from AM by ear to an electric motor instead of hydraulic motors, oh wow ok so I saved a lot of money by doing that and I can push that spoiler higher into the air towards cleaner air to create more downforce. where we talked a little bit about you know the car behind the kind of thing you did this is an amazing card I'm excited let's go out let's drive it a little But it's on right now so if there's a lot of noise here it's because it has straight pipes and It's pretty good, so let's go for a drive and I'll tell you what I think behind the wheel and let's do it.
Okay, okay, so we're on the road now. I apologize if the images are shaky or noisy or whatever, we're essentially in a daily driven road car that might as well be a race car to get here, yeah, and I mean. he's done, he's done a lot of things to this car, I'm sorry, well that doesn't stick, but I got a little carried away, um, that's the first time I opened this up a little bit and once it seemed like I like it, it's a turbo car, so you'll have it just a little lag and once it's spooled up and ready, it takes off.
I mean, this is quick, that's often why you know we were talking about a little bit you had a you said you came from the WR X's Evo's, where was it? This is a huge leap, I guess not a huge leap, but this is a completely different car, you know what made you go down this route all the big displacement naturally aspirated cars that I wanted to buy and couldn't afford, I opted So I was familiar with all-wheel drive since I drove my first turbo. I always loved that feeling of boost kicking in and getting thrown against the back of the seat and now, unlike my old turbocharged cars, this one now has two turbos and two extra cylinders, so the overall feeling of boost is increased. drastically and you tell me, tell me that when you were shopping you were looking at the first generation guy or do you know which Guyardo is definitely flashier but ultimately you know between the v10 national aspiration five or what did you I guess which is the best deal or was more than what you were looking for and how did you choose between that?
So it's a difficult decision. What made you choose this? The biggest factor was that I couldn't find the closed manual, so I could afford it and it was in good condition and then the other thing was like a slap in the face of common sense. in your face like you're stuck daily driving this for at least half a year until you get another car and there's no way I can test the Guyardo in the snow around Ohio, no you know you could. Try it, it's just like, "Okay, yeah," a couple of new bumpers aren't going to cover up while I'm at it.
I can take this thing anywhere and have taken it everywhere, even on gravel roads. 100% trustworthy, it is very reliable and will get you from point A to point B, car, you can treat it like a car at the end of the day, it is obviously a car, but it is so easy to use and usable in any type of condition that It was kind of a logical purchase. I guess versus I don't know, it's very fast, but like in my comparison, I guess we're going to compare the first generation Guyardo, yeah, um, similar prices and really everyone always talks about Guyardo friction, but these are overlooked in a It makes sense, if I don't see many good things in these, they are 10 or 11 years old and almost forgotten, you know, they are not as remembered as a 406, you know, Gerudo is, but it is more of a refined and raw car.
I reviewed an LP 560; for the great Carter, I loved it. He put a smile on my face, but for a different reason, it was pure, I was enjoying it, he put a smile on my face because he legitimately feels it. Like it's good, he's going to kill me if I don't, maybe I won't sit there and yell at him driver, I know how to explain it, it's a driver's car, you should be aware of the kind of respect that despite that, yeah , you drive. I did a little bit of respect because when the alcohol comes, it will surprise you at some point, you know, three on the back of the seat and then the tires can kick a little bit, which I think she can have it just a little bit up.
Cabello, we may or may not drive the legal speed limit, so we drive the speed limit, of course, all the time, so you know, I think one of the I hope people can hear me well, this is very strong , but one of the things I want to say is overlooked and this is that people often dismiss the fact that this is a

supercar

, it's a

supercar

like a Guyardo or four or five helpers, we're talking about a 911 turbo, we're talking. about how tall they are, obviously they have gt3 it's gt3s flores and the gt2, whatever, forget all that, but like the 911 Turbo, it's the most driver foc

used

Porsche, you know, that's available, it's hard to say .
I would say there are more. The turbo-foc

used

driver, especially the 997 with the six-speed, is overlooked in the car because, as you can see, this is a very driver-oriented car that, as you know, has nice leather, and a couple more. comforts, you can drive a tear track, you can enjoy it, you can enjoy it and then drive home, you don't have to get a trailer, load it on a trailer here, you know, and unload the trailer, it's just for me, it's kind of the best thing is one of those, we're like your best things or the ones you always have with you, yeah, you know, what I'm saying, and this fits perfectly in the sense that when you go somewhere you don't have to. get a truck, get a trailer, load your car up for a car show, get there, you know, I'm saying it's very utilitarian, yeah, and I think I hate that this is overlooked as a supercar because it's absolutely a supercar, I want say, goes. every tuner miles per hour under 4 seconds here at 60 with the mods I have and like 5 average runs, I threw it at 3 seconds when I don't know, I'm not in the quarter mile, I think I don't know what that is, but You'll get to 100 miles per hour in second gear pretty quickly.
We may or may not have some of that, we already did it on a track, of course, of course, no. m I'm going to be honestwith you. I had never driven a 911 turbo until today. I was a little skeptical going into this review because I'm no better than anyone else. I thought that's not a supercar, this is a not Lamborghini a Ferrari I used to think like I also used to think that way because they all look the same, they all look exactly the same and when I finally started to research the type of cars a little more , it made sense why Porsche believes, which I agree with, they have a perfect car design for performance, one of the perfect floors.
Oh, in Porsche size, this one. The design is impeccable, why change it with new models when your mentality is? I don't want to change it. Let me whenever we do a new generation, just fine-tune it a little bit more, I think, than what they've been. cutting the same rock for years and just making a more beautiful and functional sculpture just by being here, let's talk a little about daily driving, comfort, I'm super comfortable, I don't know what suspension state you're using, I was Moses was born in the sport, right, he's a lot stiffer, even Gary, you know, he's very comfortable and I was a lot, yeah, sorry, I had to see a little bit of the road and I just have to try girl, but even in sport.
Sport mode, it's very comfortable here, you know? I mean, no, I don't sit in sport mode, this is very comfortable and I was afraid it might be bumpy. Have you ever taken how long have you driven this on straight six? hours and I felt your back feel after that, honestly, I didn't care because I was having so much fun, it hurt a little bit, but that's how I learned to prepare myself to say oh, you know correctly, but I don't have any problem sitting down. in rush hour traffic driving this thing, but the rule is the point where you can sit and rush hour traffic and not have to go to a chiropractor afterwards and I've driven, you know, we've been on the road for In about an hour or so, you know, just driving around my back feels great.
I feel little to no pain, it's extremely comfortable, this car has been super, super fun and I don't know why I ever overlooked the 911 as some kind of perfect balance between driving every day having fun and you know, I mean, never no comment necessary it's too good and one of the you know when this card came out I think one of the big titles they gave it is that it's a missile yeah 0-60 and you. you know that in less than three and a half seconds 500, you know you can get over 500 horsepower with five hundred pound-feet of torque that you're talking about in 2007, so let's think about that per se in 2007, a car that weighs about 3500 pounds doing 60 and then you know, putting those kind of numbers, there are faster cars now, but this is still very relevant, yeah, no one should do it.
I don't understand why this is an overlooked supercar because those numbers, I mean, are beyond. Impressive even by today's standards, yes, and with all the money you save you don't have to maintain it like you would, so I'm going to take a beating for this like a Ferrari or something, no, it's a fluid that ran into a melody and some other performance pieces. and now you have something that is on par to compete with the supercars that are being sold at the moment, the current generations, so I have spent a couple of hours getting into the game with the 911 turbo and I can say that I am a big fan , this is bad, no, this is fantastic.
I can't thank you enough for letting me out. Know. Driving a car, it's absolutely a pleasure, you know? Because like you were saying there is very little content about this vehicle on the internet I want to post it because I think it's a very good buy and the good thing is that you know these cars are at the end of their depreciation so whoever you are really won't be affected . about losing a lot of money on this car and depending, you know Porsches are rare, but their value can randomly skyrocket and you never know when and why the trend is that they know now is the time to get you a first really supercar Well.
Yes, and you're getting to a place where you won't lose too much money, it's already depreciated, it'll go back up and you can enjoy it. You can put miles on it if it was a Guyardo and I had 50,000 miles. Good luck, try selling. it's like you're not with me on our third or fourth clutch yeah seven thousand dollars yeah so I mean this is a reliable everyday car and it's been a blast. Can't. Do not have enough. Good thing, but there is a trend lately. All the cars I've driven have really impressed me, maybe I need to go with the program and accept that the cars are getting super good and evolving very well.
Yes, in general. It's great, so if you enjoyed this review, I'm screaming because it's so loud here.
