    Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    We just received an official document indicating that the sport exhaust option XLF will be available for the 997 Carrera S only, not for the 997 Carrera!
    Option XLF will also be delayed, we don't expect to see it available before beginning of January or even later.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    Sport Exhaust also for 987 Boxster and Boxster S ??????

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    I have Sport Exhaust confirmed for the base Carrera production December
    When I told them the rumors on this is forum thats its only available for the S he told me 'that people at Porsche get sick and tired form the so called Porsche forums on the internet spreading rumors who are not Thu'

    No rumor, a fact taken from an OFFICIAL Porsche document. Whenever I post rumors, I call them rumors, Harry.

    Is this the option your dealer confirmed for your base Carrera?

    Your dealer should start to read his stuff he gets from Porsche, especially regarding options and availability of options. Remember my words...just in case you need to sue him in December because if he ordered an option which isn't available or which is delayed, you never get your car in December.

    Harry, you're a logical thinking intelligent person, why should the sport exhaust option be available for the 997 Carrera (not S!) in the Netherlands ONLY, worldwide?
    Go to your dealer and talk to him, make him call Porsche or whatever.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    And the official word from US is sport exhaust only available for Carrera S (not available on base Carrera), and not for a while.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    In all the UK Porsche literature, it clearly states that it is an option only for the S.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    also Italian!

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    Whoops dedam, seems you need to have a word with the dealer!
    Where do you order? A-point? Ask Jochem, maybe he'll understand.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    I have a 997s on order, December production. I want the sports exhaust. So far, the dealer has told me it's not available yet. I have two options - push back the production a month or two in hopes of having the sports exhaust available, or still go with the December production, and have it put on at the dealer when it becomes available. I would prefer it to be done during production. Should I care? Thanks.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    Cost to install at dealer is additional to Porsche Sport Exhaust itself. Involves running wires from exhaust to engine brain and perhaps dash switch, if one is used.

    This is based upon sport exhaust installed on my 996.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    Personally, I'm waiting until all my options (including the Sport Exhaust) is available. So I'm having my dealer check to see when the options become available and if necessary, push back my production. I'd rather have my car built with everything I want, even if it means waiting longer.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    as long as the delayed options are retrofitable ,i wont delay my car...
    but this options delay thing is sickening me...

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    interesting, seems like some are happy to have some options retrofitted, and others willing to wait. cost aside, is there any difference between having the sports exhaust retrofitted vs. having it done during production?

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    Only cost. Factory install includes installation cost. Retrofit (Tequipment price) does not include installation cost.

    Yeah, I agree with you. The main reason I'm willing to wait is I'm hoping that the -10mm Sport Suspension will magically become available for the 2005 model year in the US. That can't be retrofitted and is really important to me. Enough so that I might not get the car if I can't get this option.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    I've read conflicting information about whether the sports exhaust will be available with the tip. Does anyone have any insight as to whether you can get the sports exhaust with the tip?

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S only!

    Go for the factory install, always best in my opinion!

    I'm in the same boat.

    I've had two dealers inquire, still yet no answer. I'm in physical pain over this; as much as I think the 997 rocks, I must have the sports suspension to be happy. Otherwise, the 996 gets punted in favor of the Elise and I'll use my M3 for daily driving.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S o

    Here in London, I've been informed that the sports exhaust will be fitted from Feb. 05 (my build date) and that there is a switch which activates the exhaust...so the car starts with the exhaust in the off position, also the tips are not available.

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S o

    Funny, my dealership had no idea and confirmed to me that they recieved no such info from porsche but I believe RC and the german porsche website. I told them to check and have my car delayed - I do not want them messing with the car after I get it

    Re: Sport Exhaust - it is official now - for 997 Carrera S o

    if its only the exhaust ,i wont delay my car ,will install it later in tequipment. but if there is something not retrofitable ,i will delay the car.and i already had to remove tpms ,there is also a lot of delay..
    what was supposed to be a nice wait for the car to be built on appoitment ,has turned to become a stress party..
    did not expected it from porsche
