I'd take the brutal acceleration of the Turbo S over the Noble any day ... not often you'd find yourself on an empty runway!

You cant have everything all at once, Porsche for now and you might just change it for the Noble later.
Thats the trouble with exotics, you just don't like one you like them all but you cant have them ALL, not all at once anyway.

Noble might be a weapon but it looks like a kit car, so I'd pass on it.  :thumbsdown:

Agree, only to be considered if you were really bored, there so many other cars that appeal more.

Consgratulatios MHH.

I still cant imagine what the feeling of 0-100 in low 3-sec must feel like.

Would love to hear your thoughts about the PDK gearbox V other "clutchless manuals" you have experienced one you have had some time in the car.

I had a Turbo PDK overnight back in Feb/March so I can comment already. 

Compared to the e-gear on the Murci, it is lightening quick with no lag between shifts.  Driving from Ashton to Montacute (across the top, and then downhill) I gave up on manual shifting with the paddles because it always beat me to it and would downshift as soon as you started to brake and always be in the right gear as you come back on to the power.  I'm expect I'll miss the lovely manual shift in the Carrera but it is in a different league to the old-style single clutch robotic shifters.
