Didn't see that coming.
I guess Audi ponied up the big advertising bucks in June.
I love how the R8 beat it by nearly 3 seconds on Willow Springs, also posted a higher avg mph by about 3mph
Yet in most other tests, it can't shake the 997S. I'd save my $ and get a cheaper, faster Porsche.
I'm an Audi sackrider, but I call bs.
I'd still take a Carrera 4 over the R8.
You should sell ur S while u can cry baby
So I can get a slower, more expensive, less reliable car? I'll pass thanks.
I'm sure that you can get a GT3 for about the same coin as the R8.
sorry, but every magazine article i have seen about it the R8 comes out ahead. EVERY one.
Meh, I really doubt that too many people who are in the market for a 911 turbo are going to opt for the R8 instead.
car and driver fakes a lot of their figures. they had one merc 0-60 at more than half a second faster than all the other mags. bullllllshit.
id love for that to be true but somehow i dont believe it
I know a guy who works at an audi/porsche dealership. He said when the regional owners or some shit like that went to az to race it against cars in its class nothing came close to beating it.
This thread is garbage.
LOL, talk about a no brainer.
Although, it will be interesting once the RS8 makes it debut.
It was never directly compared to the S.
beat the porsche 911 and Aston Martin v-8 Vantage
Edmunds prefers the Porsche.
ummm wait a sec, u just said the 997S has never been tested against the R8.
