    What changes, additions to 997/S are likely in near future?

    Given Porsche's new-model-intro precedents and the known or surmised plans of competitors, what kinds of changes, additions, enhancements to the 997/S are likely to be made by Porsche in the near future and years ahead?

    Re: What changes, additions to 997/S are likely in near futu

    The ones I rumored probably for the facelift of the 997S:
    - Dual-clucth sequential transmition (PDK-DSG)
    - Direct injection

    Re: What changes, additions to 997/S are likely in near futu

    Like most car companies , the marketing department sets the sequence of improvements so as to continue annual buyer and media interest over the typical 5-7 year lifespan of any car model. DSG and direct injection and everything else for the whole 997 run are probably done. They are probably well into development of the 998 .
    Working in the car business must be such a time warp. Everything " brand new " to the consumer is already 3-5 years old to them .
    I recall a Porsche exec saying a year ago that their entire future product line ( nameplates and various versions therein ) was already set from a marketing standpoint ( not signed off engineering wise ) through 2009, and they were working on expanding it to 2012 .

    MaxErnst, glad to see that you did not really go away from the forum. A bit less negativity about the 997/997S would make it more pleasurable for those of us who have decided in favor of their purchase. You are certainly entitled to your opinion and to voicing it. I doubt that there is anyone who has been reading this board who is now unfamiliar with your unhappiness with the 997. So, your point has been made.

    Thank you for your kindness. Now I understand. I guess I repeated myself too many times. I guess I thought the "room" was much larger.
