... Carrera S fast.
These two cars both had A/C, Navigation, and Radio, plus PDK.
All of these options add another 80 lbs to the base Spyder's weight.
But most impressive were the brakes.
Look in the video and check the closing speed to the car in front under braking.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

The Spyders and Panameras are coming to Fontana this weekend for a PCA DE. I am looking forward to a few hot laps in each.

I was preferred more about that car. They were indicated all the automated services. It was so wonder. I have noticed that The cooling system was being so far than other car. I have tested it. I have felt so relax while I was rode the car. I liked it.
