    Re: Man Made Global Warming and Cars

    Thats it in a nutshell - it has become a genuine case of the boy that cried wolf. Y2K writ large.

    Re: And your reaction to the new 718 is?

    The 80kmh-120kmh overtaking test time is the most relevant in my view - it shows the 981S and 981GTS are fractionally slower than the 718S in the real world.

    The 0-100kmh and 0-160kmh times...

    Re: And your reaction to the new 718 is?

    The initial reports indicated the 718 would be about 80kg heavier than the 981 (which is 176lbs). Turbos add a fair amount of weight e.g. the turbo itself, plus pipework, plus intercooler, plus...

    Re: And your reaction to the new 718 is?

    The 718S torque curve is nearly identical to the 981GTS torque curve in the kill zone over 5000rpm. However the 718S is likely to be heavier than the GTS and hits the redline earlier.

    It's...
