Is Joe Lorio getting dotty?  "The Tiptronic gearbox, for one, is not a great automatic". It's pretty clear the car is equipped with a PDK transmission, and since when is that not a great automatic? Is Joe phoning these reviews in or does he actually drive the car? That aside the Turbo S is a nice car but a $ 189,000? I will keep my Carrera GTS with the wide body, black centerlock wheels and all the other goodies for which I paid less than $ 100K. One almost never hears comments on the almost absurd prices associated with the new 991 series and the Boxter.
