- From 180 km/h and upwards the M6 accelerates faster than the Porsche.markf said:wow,impressive it more or less matches the turbo S and above 160km beats it.
Is there any review or is it just figures ?
- Porsche is an awesome sport car; M6 best combination between sport car and long distance coupe.[/QUOTE said:Thanks for sharing Autobahnraser, nice to hear this, especially if you are buying the M6 for a daily driver, sounds like the perfect mix of sports car and GT.
The review is hereAutobahnraser said:What was distance of the pylons at the M5 test? Also 18m?
The M5 has got less width. That helps!
Last issue of Autozeitung, they drove the 911 Turbo S (vs Gallardo and F430) and it looks like they took the numbers from last issue Of Autozeitung and and just wrote it in the new issue against the M6Autobahnraser said:Temperature, humidity and surface conditions and tyres have a great effect on performance! You can best compare figures when testing cars at the same time and same place. The M5 did the 0-100 km/h in 4,4s even though it weighs more and the CdA is worse.
yes on the pictures but they have exact the same numbers from the last issue. I found it extremly difficult to have the exact same numbers twice. Both laptimes, slalom speed, braking, noise (Db), verbrauch and acceleration is exactly the same.Autobahnraser said:But on the pictures you can see both cars standing side by side on the track.
It's not quite fair to compare the performance of a bran new M6 against a dated Porsche 996 Turbo S. However, if you spend much time in your car because of business matters for example, or if you like to undertake long journeys with your car, or if you are in need of a real trunk, the M6 is the better choice for you. M6 vs. 996 or 997? That doesn't matter then! But the M6 will lose its Autobahn superiority against the 997 Turbo S for sure.MEnthusiast said:How will the forthcoming 997 turbo compare?
It's a Silverstone II full leather trim (X3A9). Silverstone II leather looks almost white and is very hard to keep clean.M6 Forever said:Does anybody know what colour interior is used for the M6 picture above? I'm talking about item "4a", showing a very light colour leather of the M6 interior.
