I don't see this at all. The 987 is mostly cosmetic changes to the 986, with exactly the same suspension design and components. The only significant technical change was in 2009 with the much more powerful DFI engine.

Looking back over the GRM article, the 987S that they tested was a 2011 version, so it did have about 65 Hp advantage over the 986S. They still should have done something to equalize tires.
