    Getting all of the power is the easy part. Stuffing 295's under your fenders is gonna take some hacking.

    I own an STi and I've driven my buddy's 996 Carrera a few times. Like the guy above said, there is not much to compare . Even with close hp figures, my car still isn't even in the same league. I couldn't imagine having another 90 hp on top of that.

    I think you can get 295's under a standard Carrera with spacers.
    The Turbo comes with 295's, and I'm able to get 315's back there without any modifications, so I'm guessing you could do it on a standard 996 up to 295.

    Race your boss on a slightly bumpy dirt or gravel road. Thats the only conceivable advantage I can come up with. He has AWD too, but not much ground clearance and wider tires. The WRX has 6.1 inches of minimum clearance and the 911 T is probably around 3. On a flat hardpack dirt road he'll still win. Yes, you'd have to be crazy to offroad a 911 T.

    Maybe when Subaru takes it's skirt off and brings out a turbo H6 we can play with 911 T's.

    Don't be so sure that it would be to your advantage.

    the 911, no matter how fast in a straight line, will always be the car i regard as the "best" car on the road. in all aspects, speed, communicatoin, handling, balance, looks, and even the new 911 cabin is very nice and probably very comfortable. there is no other car on the market quite like the 911.
