IF you don't like V's and Z's, you'll positively hate N's. That's
Porsche's special designation for tires that meet their own specs. My
911 has Pirelli PZero N3's on it. I never even knew that designation
existed till now. One has to realize that these specs originate in a
country where people regularly drive at speeds twice the max in the US.
I was watching a tv show last year about the autobahn. They showed a
guy who had the job of testing Porsches after they were customized and
before delivery to the customer. I think it was Ruf he was working
for. The camera man got in the back of a 911 at like 3AM at a gas
station. A few minutes later they were doing 200+ MPH down the
Now there, or on a race track, the N3 designation may very well make a
real difference. But, for us here in the US, I don't believe it does.
