Yep, Especially considering the aerodynamic/weight advantages of the 992, the F97 still pulled it.

i still don't get why he compares a tuned car to other cars.

there was a sleeper dodge caravan minivan in the early 2000s that could run a sub 10 1/4 mile. that's cool. and?

Agreed. Tuned vs stock doesn't make any sense. I had a highly modded civic walk my 570S on a roll race.... Still a civic.

I'm sorry but this guys data and testing methodology is just horrible.

Don't get me wrong, I'm rooting for the x3m, and it's cool to see a tuned x3m, AND production values are good....but that second race was a joke, and correcting those times for sea level is just manipulating data....not to mention that really bizarre match ups.

AND I am still super annoyed that he stuck 5 people in the x3m during the last video...come on man.

As the owner of both an X3MC with Bootmod3 and a stock 992 C4S I can say this whole video is BS... especially the 0-60. The Porsche does 3.4 easy.

My C4S walks my tuned X3MC in most if not all circumstances.

Ride quality is just fine. No issues. As long as one's expectations are set based on the cars capabilities. I recently took wife's x3M on the dragon and car was a beast. Don't know how many other suvs would have been able to do what it does on those roads.

BMW makes better bang for buck engines than Porsche.

The moment the test leaves the drag strip, ie any track test, shouldn't need a discussion.

Over the X3MC, but with this engine in a 3500 lb M2 g87, I will wait until that comes out to judge as that car will be half the price of the Porsche.

I'd be shocked if the G87 doesn't gain weight.

Yeah, the G8X specs have ruined my hope for the G87.

You should drag your C4S vs X3MC and post it here...
