Nice try though! You really can't stand that the mighty 911TT is beaten, can you?

the edmunds times are bogus...no verification, protocol, or accepted methods...

C&D
R&T
sportAUTO
etc.

all have established protocols...

we will know the truth when across the counter cars are independently tested outside the control of nissan...

I have no vested interest in Porsche, I'm a BMW man...

the fact the 997TT is 500 lbs lighter, has 16% more torque, and ran ~7:49 to 7:54 by established and great drivers on PSC's, does not jive with nissans claims...

the 997TT also has LESS driveline loss

GTR
f-r driveshaft
r-f driveshaft
f diff
r diff
xfer case
4 1/2 axles...

997TT
r-f driveshaft
f diff
4 1/2 axles...

the r diff and xfer case are not required and built into the tranny...
they just stick a front shaft on it...

the f-r driveshaft is not required...

let's look at the physical facts...not unsubstantiated claims...
bogus dynos, etc.

someone please calculate the ratio, check me...
also....
HP at 5250 ~460+
T at 5250 ~428

someone please explain how this can be possible...

don't confuse objectivity with hate...it's engineering and physics...do the math...
