    2009 MY Info (nothing new)

    I am trying to decide between a MY '08 and MY '09 and thought I would summarize (again). Sorry if this is tired subject, but being new here it is still pretty exciting to me. Please tell me what I have wrong.

    If there are changes for 2009, they will likely be minor (except for the last one):
    • High beams going from reflector to projector
    • LED tail lights with a little different shape
    • Probable updated SAT NAV
    • Possible minor bump in power
    • DFI unlikely
    • Possible nothing will change until mid-2009 or even 2010
    • Possible elimination of GT1 crankcase with the new engine based on M97 or some other variant


    Regarding the timing:
    • June completion dates with mid-July deliveries are plentiful
    • There are discounts on MY '08's on the lots but not common for ordered cars.
    • MY '09 build spots have not been allocated; the lists for 2009's are still pretty short most places
    • MY '09 builds start in August and would be delivered in September
    • Anticipate order guides in late May or June

    Decision time for me... All things being equal, I will just wait two months for a 2009. But all things are not equal because I don't want a car without the GT1 crankcase and I would miss most of the summer. The dilemma is that it will likely be close to impossible to spec a 2008 after the 2009 information and order guides are released. I know most will tell me to get it now and never look back.

    Re: 2009 MY Info (nothing new)

    Definitely get it now and never look back. How bad will you feel if you end up with an M97 engine with a wet sump when you could have had an M64 engine with dry sump good to 700hp without internal modifications?

    Re: 2009 MY Info (nothing new)

    DFI is pretty much a slam dunk for '09, so I would not rule that out on your list of likely new items. Not such a huge deal, but likely 20hp bump and perhaps better fuel economy, if that matters.

    Doubt any major physical changes until '11 model year.

    Crankcase issue has been beaten to death. Purist are running for the hills and telling you to buy now, others are saying wait, it's Porsche, do you think they will give us garbage on a 997 Turbo?

    You can find '09 slots around. With the state of the market lately, some listees are bailing since they did not get the big bonus.
