    997 World Premiere.

    The world premiere of the 997 will be in Paris.
    Could it be that there will be something else as well,let's just say that you will all be surprised!!!

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to Porsche...

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Oh man, 7 months of waiting for this car................arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    This confirms what I had been told.
    So we should maybe (just maybe) expect one or two pipcs in Geneva.
    Just like the Cayenne.
    Hey Christian, you seem to be pretty sure about your info!
    Are you 100% sure. I trust you man!
    Regarding the other surprise, well, I guess you're talking about the 4 door sedan then. Looking forward to it.

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    how do you know? I'm not really questioning if its true, i'm just curious.

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Oh man wait till September feels like the eternity

    I figured Geneva would be 997 and Paris would be 998

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    yupeeee!!! turbo or gt3 in 2 years!!!

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    I live in California may consider a trip... plz advs dates, also will the 997 Turbo be there - thx jte

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    The Turbo won't be introduced for a while longer after the 911 997 Carrera is introduced. Probably a year to two years after.

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    My dealer told me the GT3 will come in 3 years, at least.

    We've been hearing that the 987 would come a little later than the 997. Might it be that the 987 does indeed go alongside with the 997 at Paris instead of being introduced later in the spring/early summer of 2005? Double whammy!

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    The 987 will be introduced AFTER the 997... they don't want to make the same mistake they did with the 986/996.

    You have to bear in mind that it's quite challenging to introduce a new model... therefore, the last thing you want is to introduce 2 new models at once... especially when you only have 3 models !!!

    For example you want to get a "free" press coverage twice and not only once... and you don't want journalists to compare the cars head to head... you also want to create some traffic into your showrooms twice ... On an industrial standpoint the ramp-up phase is always tricky and you don't want to multiply the risk to mess-up....

    Finally Porsche don't really care if Boxster sales are in free fall .... profit contribution for this model is marginal .... The 911 is still (and will remain for a very long time) the highest contributor therefore it's the one that gets most of the "attention" from the company....

    I guess the new Boxster (987) will be introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005....

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    4 sure!
    italian dealers say that the new 987 will be in their salons in july and the 997 in october/november.

    ciaoo

    "My dealer told me the GT3 will come in 3 years, at least"

    Jecey - I thought the GT3 always came in the first year of a new model, so it can be homologated for racing right away

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    So there might be a chance that we will NOT see pics of the 997 in March?? I say this because March would be a little early if the car is not going to be premiered until September.

    GT3 comes out one year and a half later, for the reasons you said...

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    GT3 will be AWESOME with 445hp...


    from 3.8 NA?

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Sorry for that!
    Only wishful thinking from my side.

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Damn it!


    So you were just pullin our strings?!

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    The surprise will be a 996 turbo S or 30th anniv. turbo whatever they call it. The guys in the exclusive works dept. were in Calif. recently got drunk and blabbed about it.


    Re: yellow 997

    Aha! Those pics look pretty official to me!

    Geoff.

    Re: yellow 997

    We 911 enthusiasts will recognize the 997 right way. To everyone else , the " spied " exterior changes are the same as comparing a " Boxster face " 2001 996 C2 Coupe to a " Turbo face " 2002 996 C4S - different front and rear fascias and exhaust tips , headlights and wider rear fenders and different wheels .

    yeah, especially since they have the "old" 996 style side rearview mirrors and not the new design mirrors that have been on every 997 spyshot i've ever seen

    Re: yellow 997

    Hey Geoff! Welcome to Rennteam! Are you ready to go off-roading again? I just got back from another trip to Big Bend. Look for photos on the Cayenne board.

    All I want is a 997 C4S... 2 more years to go!!!

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Those pics are not official.
    Those are photshopped pics I originlly saw about 2 years ago.

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    RC, If your info is correct regarding Paris for the 997 debut; it
    changes the entire time-frame, that people close to the factory think is the schedule for release of the new product.
    The difference is a matter of 3-4 months,later than we thought. It means that we won't have the new car here until
    Oct. at the earliest,(USA). I hope that this isn't true !

    Re: 997 World Premiere.

    Preproduction cars come out in June,but the official premiere is in Paris with deliveries starting immediately after that.
