996 Turbo uses the Mezger engine as used in the GT3. Completely different unit from the one in the vanilla 996. The Mezger was also used on the gen 1 997 Turbo but the gen 2 moved to a turbo version of the direct injection engine seen in the regular Gen 2 997. » 10/31/14 12:16pm Yesterday 12:16pm

It was Mercedes and Jaguar who were dominating Group C prior to that as Porsche had largely left the series as a works team. » 10/24/14 10:55am 10/24/14 10:55am

See plenty of them where I live in the South East of England. Suspect it is a car more focused on Europe than the US anyway. We get a lot more engine choices including a diesel version (We also get a diesel TT incidentally) » 10/24/14 3:58am 10/24/14 3:58am
