$40k buys a half second. If I were to buy a 911 it would have to be a 4s for the handling capabilities. But since they only come with automatic, well that won't be happening anyway. It's also just cheaper for me to do a tune on my GTS and set it up as a sleeper. The 911 guys will never know what happened lol

The standard Carrera will be even less so. Possibly only a couple of tenths.

If it is straight line acceleration you want, get a Tesla.
I have just ordered a Model 3 Performance as a daily driver for days where driving with the top down in my 718 Boxster is a no go.
In a straight line it will take on any of the 718's but show them a corner and the 718 will show what a true sportscar is about, just proving that a single number does not define a car.

If you're only value is straight line speed then yes, but it also buys you a completely different car. To purely judge cars on 0-100 times or straight line speed times is a little pointless IMO.
Can't argue with that. Besides there's much less expensive cars that will beat either in a drag race.

I was cross-shopping a 991.2 GTS and the 718 GTS that I ended up buying. I had more fun driving the 718 GTS and the 991.2 GTS was almost twice the cost. It wasn't worth it to me.
Another good example of which is the driver's car and which is the status car.
