Impressions of riding an air-cooled Porsche 911 (type 964) after a long absence
Porsche 911 964C2
The other day, I got on my air-cooled Porsche 911, 964C2 after a long absence. Certainly, the last ride was last fall, so I drove for the first time in more than six months.
My husband recently rides an air-cooled Porsche, but every time I ride,
964 is really good. Whenever I switch GT3 and 964 in the parking lot and come back,After all GT3 is wonderful, so I want to go home with GT3 as it is.I think I'll get on the 964 while thinking about it, but when I get on the 964, I'm thinking, "Ah, it's a really good car, there might be Boxster and GT3."
And saying the same thing every time with a full smile (laugh)
Also, my house 964 is not a manual but a tiptronic, but my husband,
Tiptronic is also fun enough. I think this AT is really good for this era. Especially after changing the AT fluid, it became even better, and you can easily enjoy the goodness of the 964 chassis anywhere in the city. So,You can enjoy the luxury of using 964 as a daily foot without stress.
I think Tiptronic was good in my current car lineup.(However, if you don't have another MT car, I think you buy MT)
We are talking with others.
I was looking at such a husband a little cold, but after a long time riding an air-cooled Porsche, I was also ``It ’s really a car"I was impressed.
I can not express well, but "Oh ... I guess this is a Porsche ...I feel. In comparison, it is clear that GT3 and Boxster GTS in our house are considerably seasoned and directed.
Of course, its water-cooling performance is also wonderful and modern Porsche is easier to drive many times, but when you get on the plain 964,Simple, simple and well-made carIt is amazing.
Since I have never driven a Porsche older than 964, I feel that this solid feeling, undercarriage, steering operation, and even everything "may be the origin of today's water-cooled Porsche". It is very fun to run around the city without speeding.
Also, the engine soundThe engine is working wellIt sounds very natural and good without any gimmicks.
Also surprising,Runs firmly, unlike a car made 30 years agoThing. The lightness and response when stepping on the accelerator feels youthful, unlike a classic car, and it is surprisingly stable even on a highway.
Of course, the steering is heavy, and when turning around an intersection at a very low speed, it may not really turn,However, the real pleasure of Porsche driving fun and taste is condensed in that analogyfeel like.
And when I get on it, I feel very happy and it is a good car. Husband also about 964,
The sound and atmosphere are good, but in additionThe feeling of “steering” is the real pleasure of Porsche in this eraYeah.
During this time, we drove on Route 194 in Shikoku during heavy rain, but the driver's response and sound, lateral G, vibrations, etc. were transmitted to the driver as analog information, such as road surface conditions and limit values.
Modern water-cooled Porsche has PSM, and if you do not care, the car will run properly,The air-cooled Porsche feels like the car gives the driver information one by one and the driver "steers" to respond to it.So interesting.
they said. I see.
In the near future, I want to run Rokko and Ashi in this 964!
