"Like the last 911, but 15% better"...so said

The Autocar magazine's initial road test, as reported on 15th June 2004...

"This is 911 heaven. The 997, responding perfectly to every input, doing exactly what you want, when you want, is in its element."

"Yes, yet again, Porsche has built a significantly faster 911."

"...better handling, more predictable – yes, a more rewarding 911, with a chassis poise that essentially refutes its tail-heavy weight bias...in these circumstances, tottering on the limit, the previous generation 996 gently bobbed the nose vertically. The new 997 stays flatter, biting first at the nose, then sticking resolutely at both ends, the brakes smashing into the speed and seemingly unconcerned at their continual near-abuse..."

"Apart from thoroughly revised styling (only the roof panel is carried over from the 996) that obviously draws its inspiration from the 993, highlights include a now 3.8-litre flat-six for the S version we’re testing, a new interior and Porsche’s first attempt at adaptive damping in a 911."

"The truth - unpalatable though it may be to those obsessed by the air-cooled 993 variety, is that each successive water-cooled 911 has moved the game forward."

"...the new S is quieter and more comfortable of ride, most notably in normal mode, the suspension absorbing bumps that would have jarred the rear end of the old model... The gear change is faster and lighter, sweeter, full of character and a joy to operate. Yet a flatter and beefier torque curve reduces the need, if not the inclination, for cog-swapping."

"The big-bore engine is more gutsy and responsive around 3000rpm, where it begins to tap into the flat six’s intoxicating induction snort, and it’s equally happily to rev, despite those 350 horses being developed at 6600rpm, 200rpm below the 3.6-litre’s power peak. There is real power from 2500rpm, thanks to the variable intake-valve timing and a total redesign of the induction system. The effect is a constantly volatile induction howl that takes on a harder character at 5600rpm, in synch with a power kick, and builds in volume to a deep scream by 7300rpm that seems to spring from the very heart of the engine."

"In 997 S form, the 911 Carrera is faster, more stable, more precise, and forgiving, an altogether superior – make that more efficient – sports car than the previous 996. Still, I suspect this anaesthetising of traditional Porsche traits – flaws if you must – will be missed by some obsessive 911 drivers. It is almost too good, a genuine supercar at an un-supercar price, that retains all the practicality that has made the 911 unique for over 40 years, and is capable of true greatness..."
