That 72.1 mph figure you quote is from MT, which uses a shorter slalom than R&T. No Porsche 996 was tested at the same time. The slalom figure he's quoting is from a head to head track shoot out done by R&T in 7/98. Both cars (and others) were tested at the same time by the same driver. The 996 not only slalomed faster, it was slightly faster on the road course. The F355 beat them both.
