I guess we all have a difference of opinion. I'm just used to the instant predictable power in my NA m3 and 911. I drove the 911 turbo s for a good 20 minutes or so and was blown away by how beautiful and fast it was but the lag was there and the power delivery was not easy to modulate or predict IMO However I am bias, Not a fan of turbo cars in general. I will hold on to my 997s for a few more years, maybe get the 991 when it gets a midlife power bump.
