The geometry makes it seem higher geared than it is, helped by the optional, and remarkably natural-feeling, electric power steering, which is a column-powering kit by EZ. Wires are a no-cost option, if you want to take this even further. Especially as, to be extra-sure, this one is seam-welded too. As well as its extra urge, the Plus gets tougher brake pads, a plate-type limited-slip diff from Tran-ex part of Quaife , an upshift light triggered at rpm rpm shy of the rev limit and a lower ride height by 20mm up front and 15mm at the rear.

Porsche Carrera S car review: There’s naturally more wind noise and less torsional rigidity than a modern performance car, and the initial body movement when turning into corners is a little soft, but it is quickly apparent that the steering assistance is accurately weighted, the damping very nicely judged and the car isn’t going to bite if you throw it around a little.
