I bought my Jeep back in December and never really got on it until last weekend coming back from Brooklyn. I came across a Carrera S and decided why not. Mind you I had my two kids under the age of 3 and my wife sleeping, so I had to be reasonable about how fast I would take it. After a couple times of hitting 120 mph from 55 mph, he figured out he could not pull away from me. He gave me a confusing thumbs up. :confused: So now I am wondering if my Jeep is stock. Any one ever race a Carrera S?

Looked brand new. Had that wide stance and dual exhaust with quad tips. And it was a soft top. I was impressed considering I had luggage, two adults and two kids weighing me down, I was still able to keep with him when we stepped on it

I dont think Carrera S has wide stance compare to regular Carrera, its 4 or turbo which has wide stance... it could be badged Carrera cabrio.

I do believe you but Carrera S can pull easily against Stock SRT8 on the Freeway.

they are fast

That's why I am wondering if mine is stock or if its been programmed. Either way I know it was a Carrera of some type and had the wide stance not like the Boxer and it said Carrera S on the back. Maybe he was taking it easy on me.

Pretty sure the 997 version of the S has a wider ass end, quad tips, and red or yellow calipers (yellow if it has carbon brake pkg). They are fast at highway speeds.

I have passed a few of them on the road course before I was S/C'd.

Mine ain't blown nor does it have a cam, exhaust or CAI... Sooooo maybe he was doing enough to stay in front or he can't drive and I'm a bad ass. And there was some but not to much traffic.
