    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    Interesting, I thought we would have seen the facelift earlier, such as March '08.

    UK can often be a bit late getting new models whilst they finish the RHD development

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    That's the same line I got first from OPC in Cambridge & East London. I then found out otherwise. I believe March build for April delivery for facelift. Porsche have no intention of restricting sales in UK to prop up the used market. Why would they???

    Porsche numbers for the UK will be down going forward as I hear that there will be restricted supply to support residuals. The facelift won't come before sumnmer next year.



    You mean Porsche is going to spit in their customers' faces like Ferrari? Say it ain't so.

    I think the facelift will come in march 2008...
    What do you think about?

    What an original thought!

    I don't think anyone ever even hinted at that in the preceding 93 or so pages. Breathtakingly original piece of insight!

    Re: What an original thought!

    FWIW Autocar gave a soundbite last week that all P boxer engines will be DFI "from next year"

    Facelift

    the future can't be stopped unfortunately






    Re: Facelift

    when are we going to see pics of the interior / Hey anaybody out there with pics of the interior for once. if you guys could zoom and catch the exterior mods, I guess the same could be done for the interior ! Pics please pics!!

    Re: Facelift

    I'm in agree!! Can't wait to see the new interior pics!! with the new DSG and hope many more good accessories!!!!!!!

    Re: Facelift

    I can't imagine Porsche would bother changing the interior very much - it's too costly to re-do. More likely they will add some new (expensive) trim options and generally cheapen the materials a little.

    They obviously still have the stupid wart on the dashboard looking at the pics above.

    Not worth holding your breath for.

    Re: Facelift

    Agreed. I don't recall any interior changes between the 996 Mk I and Mk II.

    I am digging the LEDs.

    Re: Facelift

    They added a glove box, plastic where nicer and cabs were fitted with a glass rear window.

    Re: Facelift

    Some pics of interior please!!!

    That's right. Forgot about the glove box. Consider the rear window and exterior item.

    Unfortunately for some, the facelift will be introduced in waves.
    Strangely enough, the base models come first in March/April.
    The S models follow after the factory vacations in August/September.
    The GT3 will also come next year. Turbo not clear yet.

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    I think the base models and the S come at the same time...

    I thought so too. But it seems that dealers got information that the introduction is split for the models.

    Would that make any sense? I don't think so. If they split GT3 and Carrera/S that's fine, but if bring a facelifted base Carrera months earlier than the S-model, nobody will buy the S in this period, so why should they do so?

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    Especially if the facelifted Carrera is close in power to the old Carrera S.

    Besides, from a cost point of view, it makes absolutely no sense. The Carrera and Carrera S have the same fenders. Why make two sets of fenders when you could update both models at the same time and keep making only one set?

    (The GT3 and the Turbo are a different story, since they already have different fenders.)

    I think the whole 911 line will facelifted at the same time excluding the GT's.

    Dealers (car salesmen) are notoriously wrong about Porsche updates because they really aren't that knowledgeable about the cars (at least compared to people on this board) and they have motivations to lie to you.

    well said! I confirm this. Those little boys have no glue about that cars. But what to expect from this Teenagers with elementar school knowledge. I'm always coming home from the dealer with a red head seeing those kids arrogantly talking to me.

    puuhhhhh... i get this red head again, purly thinking about!

    and now ... back to topic!

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    I think the carrera and the S will come at the same time...

    We'll see....

    But maybe they didn't skip english class! But joking aside, the staff at my local Porsche dealer is a lot better, committed and constant than those at BMW and Mercedes with permanent employee turnover.

    IMO you can't really blame a dealer that he's not telling customers about facelift plans which haven't been officially announced by PAG and are just rumours in bulletin boards.
