    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    After the report, great pics ! It is surely nice to have a taste of what you gonna get!

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Thanks Jason!!

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    I still have even more pictures. Just have to edit them. Anybody have ideas where I can upload the videos?

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Re: Opus 911: A turbo introduction

    Not satisfied being an "M5 Photo Extraordinaire!" eh, atomic80?


    Is the blue car lapis or midnight blue?

    Might be light but it looks almost like midnight blue to my eye. Great photos!

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Thx for pix and impressions

    Interesting that P would include 997TT Tips (or manuals for that matter) w/o SC (as at least one Tip in pics lacked SC), yet cars w/various leather options, incl the Cadillac/Lexus-like supple leather (that should come w/mandatory wood interior options) .....

    So, who drew the short straw in choosing cars to have to waste their time driving around in a 997TT w/o SC, after signing up for a ?12-24 hr round-trip flt to get an early drive of 997TT????? Or was the "model" in the pics part of the "parity" btwn car choices for the day?

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Nice. Looks like GT Silver w/ alum look seat backs. Very close to what I'm odering, Silver looks good w/ PCCB's

    The real question is who's the babe ? Nice belly & tan line.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Shes the assistant shifter maybe, puts the Tip in Tiptronic.
    Who knows.

    Maybe just a forrest girl who wandered by ...

    Nice pics and very nice inputs.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Whooops! Didn't realize I was already posting on the 4th page and missed all the great shots prior. Wow!! Very cool, thanks so much. Some of the best turbo pics so far.

    Can you confirm the seat back finish on the GT -Silver car?

    GT-Silver sure does look amazing.

    I used to have a very nice German forrest girl
    Then I got a swedish beach girl But, I wish I could have traded her back for the German forrest girl!

    German forest girls rock Especially the dark haired ones.

    My wife (Heidi) is half swedish, half German. No bs. That was too funny though, some blonde haired tanned up forrest girl just roamin round eh?

    ps: Jason - good choice for the steering wheel, it's the one I have now and imo the nicest one offered.

    Thanks for the pics, Jason. And based on the great shots, I have now narrowed my exterior color choice to GT Silver or Artic Silver with PCCB!



    They're both very nice, can't go wrong w/ either. Artic is my favorite Porsche color, GT Silver is close second. If possible find a dealer that has both colors OUTSIDE. Doesn't have to be the turbo can be the 997. I got lucky that my dealer had both parked next to one another. The GT Silver is more grey, the Artic is more Silver. Even if GT Silver was a no cost option like Artic I still would have choosen Artic, in my eyes it's brighter and matches the interior alum better but color is so subjective, good luck.

    Dang. Not just some good coincidence? Maybe Porche marketing is more slick than we give them credit for?

    She's real easy on the eyes that's fer sure.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    That girl in the pic has her arms crossed and is pouting.

    She does not look like a happy forrest girl!

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Great pics, thanks so much.
    Guard red does look great, but would attrack too much attention..

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    funny, i was thinking same thoughts there Gnil.

    Thnx for the pics and commentary Jason! Guards red in that dim mountainous light shines *rather* red...


    "Which one of these is not like the other??" was runing through my mind in the pic of turbos parked alongside road~~

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Stradale, that's a great suggestion as in the hot desert sun in Las Vegas the colors do look different. Andre Agassi has a 996TT cab in Artic Silver and lives around the corner, so I see it quite a bit. I have also seen a few Carerra GT's in GT silver and honestly it looks very different than in Jason's pics. I think I prefer the Artic Silver but will go to the dealer and look again under different light conditions to make my choice. Thanks.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    atomic80 thanks one of the better reviews I have read

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    I can never be satisfied just being a photographer for just the M5! I don't even own one anymore! Gave it up in anticipation of getting my own 997TT! You can bet that I'll be sure to take plenty more. I just hope that I can meet other 997TT owners in the area. I wouldn't want to be the ONLY one with one.

    I took many more shots of just every imaginable part of the Turbo because I knew many of you folks would be asking about this and that. For example, I believe that the seatback of the GT silver is actually the same Krylon (sp?) finish as on the PCM console. Not that pretty IMHO. I may try to get these parts painted. One thing that I'm confused about is the Active Sports Seats. I read somewhere that it basically means that the bolsters are power adjustable but yet one of the hosts (Marc) says that it means that they adjust dynamically in the curves. Can someone verify if that truly is the case. I'd be surprised if it was. The black 997TT had this option and I don't recall feeling the bolsters ever moving once I'd set them.

    "Kristina" was one of the driver's girlfriend. She was HOT! Very willing model too. I sure wish that she was my "Tip."

    As for the blue car. I do believe that IS Midnight blue after all. I just saw a Lapis blue car and that sure doesn't look as dark as the blue one that I drove originally. BTW, that blue car was the only one with tip but no SC. I managed to get that car at first before swapping over to the black fully loaded car. Both GT silver cars had the cocoa interior which IMHO doesn't look very good with that exterior color.

    Thomas, our guide, chose which cars we should get before we got there I think but he did give us the flexibility of being able to swap cars later on in the day. I just wish that I had the foresight in asking for a chance to try a Tip with SC. I'm still happy with the choice that I made in going with a 6 speed with the sport shifter.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    Any luck with the videos? Also, are all of the pics you took available on your website, or are there some you have not yet posted. I would be interested in seeing every one. Thanks again for the great report.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    I'm really good to you guys.

    Here's even more pictures:

    I haven't figured out where I could have those videos hosted which is why I haven't posted them yet. Anybody have any suggestions?

    Thank you, this is a great picture

    The Turbo looks really great in dark colors, can't wait for real life Atlas pictures.

    Re: Jason, thank you for making me have a huge, dumb grin

    I agree, I like the next picture even more. For some reason it just looks cooler taken at that angle. Black is the best color for this car imo.
