    yup.. air springs and adaptive dampers. From the factory, the car can be raised up almost an inch from the 'comfort' and 'sport' settings, and can be lowered down about an inch in the 'sport plus' setting. It's hard to tell, but the car has over 6.5" of clearance at its highest, and is around...

    track time on Saturday. The car is really fast.. but while the heavier weight isn't felt in the handling, the brakes still got too hot in the heavy braking zones. I had to back off earlier in those areas, but otherwise the car was great.

    some day I'll own a 996 or 997.. or 993 or 964.. or 70s or 80s 911.. or cayman 987 or 981 honestly, I could see getting a 996 or 997 and a 987. But this 970.2 is my perfect primary car right now.

    Trust me.. the 970.2 version helped a lot, the removal of silver badging at the back helps, and lowering the car (using the factory air settings) and putting the spoiler up helps a lot as well. The rear can look super weird at some angles still, but it's such an awesome car, it's easy to not...

    thanks.. I do plan on picking one up eventually. I have a good independent shop near me as well (Dundon Motorsports.. you might be familiar?). This car is truly loaded. It is the best optioned Panamera Turbo or Turbo S that I saw for sale in over a year of watching them closely. It's an...

    thanks! I get a lot of comments on the calipers from people who say they don't like the color on the car. I have to point out that they signify the carbon ceramic brakes.. the largest cast iron brakes are usually red, etc. Porsche caliper color decoding :D
