Thanks for the feedback.

There were a few factory TT 928s...or at least rumors of them. The 928 now has a loyal cult like following. The 928 had a ton of potential, but they kept it where it was to allow the 911 turbo to remain at the top, performance wise I mean. I have no doubt Porsche could have squeezed even more power out of the engine. It's all marketing, demographics and the like. The car would have been perfect with 600 HP and 3100 lbs. There was a 750 HP boat engine made from the 928S4 engine in the late 80s.

For me, I grew tired of being told a supercharger was the "only way". I thought this was a good thread to respond to beacuse I've been there. Say, didn't Porsche basically start with a 911 SC when they built the 930?
