    My lucky friend has a stock Porsche 991 S. He's planning on autocrossing it for the first time in a few weeks. Any idea where this car will get classified? SS, SSP, or ASP? I'm guessing ASP.400 hp, 3100 lbs, 20" rims.Thanks!

    My guess is SSP will be the default classing at this point.

    Supposedly this car is just about as fast as a 997.2 GT3. In a straight line ...yeah maybe faster.

    Corners and transient handling, not to mention road feel......997.2 GT3 wins IMO

    20" wheels.....fail....no A6's in 20".

    Awesome car.

    Your friend will probably get creamed by a chick in her Miata, and never come out again.

    SS if running stock (local event). The car is not in the exclusion list and meets all the stock class rules. It is not eligible for Tour/National trophies because it isn't listed.

    Not a treat, 20" stock wheels with no r-comp rubber. Default competitive class: SSP and it will get eaten there.

    Until it has R-comps it should stay in SSP. Once the Rs are available then some testing will determine it's class. Based on David's assessment I'm betting it'll get classed in SS because the SCCA seems to want to kill the C5Z and can't seem to do it.




    ...I couldn't resist....

    911 NOC -- C Stock:-)

    I would think this would be a Super Stock Car.

    The last 911 was made in 1989.

    Looks like it is in Super Stock per December Fast Track.

    The new Street Stock class might be a good place for this car.  Rivals come in 20s, but they are likely too tall in the 315/35-20 (28.7).  In Street Stock one can run 19 inch or 21 inch wheels.  That opens up tire choice to the Hankook RS-3 and the Yokohama Advan AD08, which is probably a great choice for the car.

    Stock wheel choice provides for 8.5" or 9" fronts and 11" or 11.5" rears:

    • 9 x 20 
    • 11.5 x 20

    Nice car indeed, James!

    Of course, with the 7,432 classes we now have you are virtually assured of a win since it will be you and one other guy in a Lotus or GT3 (not!) even a very large region like San Diego. Takes 3 entries to win a piece of plastic, so you won't be getting that - not that you care about more of those

     As for comparing to other classes to see how the car is in solo: good luck with that, since Ruth seems to have been very....uh....conservative in indexing the "140+" stock classes. Not much of a path to compare to anyone outside of 140 stock. You could run PAX and see how you do against Kiesel I guess...oh wait, there's that 140 tire index thing again.

    Anyway, wish I could afford one. Such as beautiful car. Bastard.

    Local -- not really worried. Just want a car that is fun on the street and for AX.

    Looks like Hankook makes many 20" RS-3 sizes now (305 and 255 should work well). I don't think tires will be an issue, but nice to have the option to go up or down an inch in diameter.
