11's stock - Road and Track tests the PDK 991 Carrera S and hits firstname.lastname@example.org, on par with a 997 GT3
Well, the PDK Carrera S is simply a heck of a lot faster than the manual. This makes for two tests of the PDK hitting 118 MPH trap speeds in the 1/4 mile (the other being Car and Driver
). The quickest and fastest the manual has gone through the 1/4 mile that we have seen is 12.7@113
. We will likely see quicker and faster manual numbers than that but the PDK is clearly the superior performance option.
11.8 stock is very impressive. This puts the 991 Carrera S with less horsepower than a 997 GT3 right about on par with it. With a supercharger it is going to be quite a mean little car. Mid 11's or even better should be possible with bolt on's. Who would have thought that would be possible? Now just imagine if the GT3 got a PDK. It is our belief for it to stay competitive, it will need to.
