So the 997 Turbo is quicker than a Ferrari Enzo

  1. Looking at Motor Trend's latest 0-60 time, the 997 Turbo gets to 60 in 3.2 seconds, which is pretty remarkarble. I don't know exactly how accurate it is, but nevertheless, still very good even if it 1 or 2 1/10ths of a second off.
     
  2. apparently motor trend sucks. Thats all i ever hear.
     
  3. The Enzo has done 3.2's a couple of times, with one 3.14 (Autoweek?). Not too surprising that with AWD the Turbo might be just as fast or faster to 60. I'd almost bet the advantage comes down to the 0-40 launch. Once past 40, the Turbo doesn't stand a chance.
     
  4. What's funny is the 997 Turbo is faster than their flagship. the CGT.
     
  5. I don't doubt it, but most times I heard were 3.3 0-60.
     
  6. 3.2 seems too good. Last time I checked, a Gemballa 640 GTR Evo does the 0-62 in 3.4 seconds.

    In any case, wet the roads and you'll need a Veyron to beat the 997 Turbo. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  7. Cars are getting so damn fast it's amazing.
     
  8. technicaly its not the flag ship anymore as its no longer in production
     
  9. Technically your name is spelled wrong.
     
  10. The Z06 can clobber both, for 1/3 the cost.
     
  11. yup, the z06 does it in 2.5
     
  12. -2.5 seconds, that's right, it'll go 0-60 before you even start your watch.
     
  13. PWN3D!
     
  14. Shut it homo. The Turbo was released while the CGT was still in producion.
     
  15. the Turbo is faster to 60 because of the AWD, but the Carrera GT is a few ticks quicker to the quartermile.
     
  16. I remember when I was younger I thought that a car was fast if it did 0-60 in 6 seconds.
     
  17. Who cares, it's only to 60mph
     
  18. 3.6L > 6.0L

    Never underestimate the 911.
     
  19. That is for the auto no?
     
  20. The Enzo only needs a few ticks more before it catches and passes it
     
  21. Are you on crack?
     
  22. 6 seconds isn't fast?
     
  23. Well of course... but its still pretty remarkable.
     
  24. even now, 6 seconds is still pretty fast to me!
