    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    Hey guys,

    I was told today by a friend that he was offered a powerkit for his new 997.2 TT to take it up to 530 hp and that this was coming from his dealer in Bahrain, as powerkit x51 option.  does anyone know if in fact porsche is offering that upgrade for the turbo?  I asked my dealer here and they seeme a bit clueless.....

    Sounds more like a dealer who tries to cash in on the naivety of a customer or your friend is just gossiping (which wouldn't surprise me, it is the Middle East).

    Fact is: So far, there is no 997 Turbo Powerkit from Porsche. The only official Porsche power upgrade for the 997 Turbo is called...997 Turbo S.

    I can't exclude that the dealer uses Turbo S parts to modify a regular Turbo but I rather think he sells a simple chip tuning for a lot of money.

    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    Ya thanks RC, I assumed that it was pure gossip, as I'm very good friends with the after sales manager at my dealer in Beirut, and he would probably contact me as soon as an "official" upgrade was made available, I've already got an aftermarket exhaust from cargraphic to make the car sound better, and I'm more than happy with my turbo as it is, but I'm always have a weak point for more power, hence my interest in finding out if this was true! thanks for your help:)

    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    Cargraphic makes great exhaust systems for the Turbo (reliable, without nasty "side effects"), good choice.

    I'm not sure if a powerkit will be available since the 991 introduction is just around the corner. The 991 Turbo shouldn't be available until 2012 but I still think that a powerkit doesn't make sense anymore.

    Hi,
    Stumbled across a new (to me) review of the 2011 911 turbo S.  Here are the links to the review and to the video.  Review is by Auto123.com Canada.  Pages took a long time to load.
    Enjoy,
    Don

    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

     The new PDK-S system will take the 991 GT and Turbo cars to another level. We may even see it on a run out 997 model :)


    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    God the Turbo S is looking more and more attractive, I am so tempted to trade up to one.

    BUT, knowing the 991 is just around the corner, a 991 Turbo is even more tempting.


    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    Whoopsy

    [...] knowing the 991 is just around the corner, a 991 Turbo is even more tempting.


    I guess the 991 Turbo will still take two to three more years until it is released so a different interim car might be interesting. Smiley

    Thanks JP66, Enmanuel, and Spyderidol.
    Thanks Connie, the mountains of western NC are really beautiful.  Highest elevations east of the Mississippi.  You should come visit one day.
    Very kind of you Ferdie.  I l-o-v-e Florence and The Machine.  They were nominated for a Grammy this year.  Florence is almost 6’ tall and lives in London.  Her mother is a professor of Renaissance Studies and Academic Dean for Arts at Queen Mary University.  For any who may be curious about their music, here are two videos, a good intro to them:
    The Drumming Song

    and

    They have one CD called Lungs.
    I sound like an advertisement but they’re the freshest thing in pop music I’ve heard in a long long time.  Oh heck, here’s another video, Rabbit Heart
