    Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    I was suprised by what you can order (an aerokit, for one) and cannot (XSA painted seat backs). I passed on Bose (didn't care for it or its extra weight) and Nav--and got these options:

    TG Sand Beige Interior

    249 Tiptronic (must have--cannot work a clutch for physical reasons)

    PO1L Adaptive Sport Seats

    XTV Door Finishers in Leather

    CFA Tiptronic Shift Gate in Leather (not in guide but PCNA confirmed I could order it).

    Now I'm officially a waiter. Or should that be

    Nope--it's all good.

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    congratulations ... but I would think twice about Bose and Nav ... if nothing else resale .

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    I understand your point on Nav and Bose--but IF I sell, with only 48 others in the entire world, will you really pass because of no Nav and the overpriced, boomy Bose?

    Lack of either didn't hurt the GT3

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    Congrats Paul ! Never heard of a Club coupe, but I think you can call it fully optioned. The fact that it's loaded with stuff and it's a tip brings it already on the weighty side so I wouldn't bother about that anymore.
    BTW what's a [ Active Brake Differential (ABD) ](from the spec.list) is that a limited slip diff ?

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    We don't get limited slip in the US--ABD is part of the traction control/PSM and uses the brakes to counter a difference in speed between the two rear wheels in lieu of true limited slip.

    As for the Club Coupe, you can see some pic's and other material over on Porsche's US site. Or search further down for my post from last Friday--someone linked to the coupe in that thread.

    And thanks for your kind words--it is a very heavily optioned 997 S with X51 powerkit, unique paint and comemorative badging/numbering, and limited to 48 sold to PCA members, 1 given away in a drawing to PCA members and one in Porsche's museum.

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    So what'd that tally up to?

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    First at all: CONGRATS, good choice.
    But I also have some bad news for you: if you think that the limited "Club" edition will hold it's value or even become a collector's piece, I strongly doubt it.
    This is why I would definetely recommend the BOSE and maybe even the Nav system.

    But anyway: enjoy, you ordered yourself a very nice toy.

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    Congratulations! Sounds great!
    The special color should look awesome!
    Is it as wide as the 4?

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    Congrats Paul . Sounds like a great car.

    Nope--I have no illusions; I owned a Millennium Coupe. In fact, I have always advised just what you said, when people fawned over last's year's "special" Boxsters, all 1959 of them. Buy them if you love them--which is what I'm doing here.

    Frankly, I bought the car for me and I realize that the Tip will turn off most buyers--but it is what it is. The Club Coupe is a much better deal, price wise than anyone's going to get on the X51 package (which is a $16,900 option in the States). Without adding anything for the Azurro California blue paint, the Club Coupe's easily $5,000 less than a similar optioned 997S with X51.

    And the color's a breath of fresh air--Porsche's color palatte lately is getting boring.

    Bose--I wanted it till I heard it; Nav--no use for it, and it's just not that common over here. And the Nav system before it was a flop and Porsche left owners hanging by not issuing map updates since 2000.

    No, it's the same width as any 997 S--which is roughly 1.75 inches narrower than the upcoming 4's.

    MSRP should be $106,411.00 based on the Club Coupe price guide and the cost for CFA from the normal 997 S price guide.

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    Congrats, Paul!

    Reg. Navigation; I suppose it can be retrofitted, doesn't it? I assume the issues of not updating map data is rather due to the producer of the Nav-CDs than Porsche themselves.

    Reg. the Bose system it is up to you, it is not a big extra charge but if you entirely dislike it than skip that option.

    Reg. Tiptronic, I actually do believe that this will attract some buyers, esp. in the US! What's the percentage of Tiptronic buyers on the 911 range, 30 %?
    I just do hope that some Club Coupes will be fitted with a manual!

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    Congratulations Paul! I'm sure you'll love it!

    Which PCA region are you in?

    Maverick--DFW area.

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    Congrats on an absolutely beautiful car. I agee with your rationale about the NAV and the Bose system. Audio systems in cars leave a lot to be desired. The XSA option doesn't seem to be available on any Porsche at the moment. Any information from PCNA whether this will change any time soon?

    Re: Club Coupe Ordered and Order Guide Attached

    I'd be surprised if many people ordered Tip on the Club Coupe with its X51 pkg. Any word on the car they're giving away?

    I am sure that's true on the Tip--for me, I have to have it and I'm happy it's available--it wasn't on the prior powerkits other than the X50 powerkit on the Turbo.

    The giveway hasn't happened yet--entry deadline to win one ends 9/12; only PCA members as of June 1, 2005 are eligible to enter and must enter on Porsche's website. On 9/13 there's a drawing to select three, each of which win a trip to the Petite LeMans in Atlanta on 9/29-10/02 and $300 spending money. The car winner is selected at the race.

    So if you're eligble you still have time to enter to win one
