10 MUST DO suspension modifications for the Porsche 997 Turbo that will have a dramatic benefit on handling and bring the all wheel drive super-car as close to as possible to a GT3 track monster.
About a month ago I had the PASM failure light come on my Porsche 997 Turbo, this switched the control unit off essentially turning off all the suspension management systems – as one would expect. I switched the car off, restarted it and everything was fine.
Mind blowing technology, simply staggering numbers – pretty much all I could say after watching Porsche’s Andreas Preuninger (The man behind all of Porsche’s GT cars) elaborate on the technology that went into the 991 Porsche GT3. Among them the fastest gear shifting mechanism in ANY production car on the planet. Les than 100th of a millisecond, together with an updated engine capable of over 9000 rpm range!
We got a few owner-experts and one semi-professional driver to test out a stock 2007 Porsche Turbo, another equipped with after market Bilstein coilovers (and other goodies), a 2008 GT2, and 2010 Porsche GT3. Switching back and forth between all four cars for about 3-4 hours in twisty canyon roads – we all reached some interesting conclusions.
