    Talked with the Generel manager toaday and he assured me the 3rd spot for the TT cab from his allocation. The 1st one goes to the owner, 2nd is for him and 3rd will be mine. He said to expect the allocation to be available around sept and delivery before the year end. Wonder if there will be a PDK??? This year Will be one long year. This car is definitely a keepr




    You must be a very important customer of theirs. I imagine they had to have at least one customer's deposit for the turbo cab already. Especially in California. Hell, I put down my turbo cab deposit 2 years ago. Excellent news silver, you're getting black right? Triple black/ PCCB? I'm debating now whether to go w/ Basalt instead of Artic like I have now. I've been wondering the same thing about PDK and feel exactly the same, for me this car is going to be a keeper. I'm going to option it accordingly. The thing that I'm un-sure about is what to do if PDK is around the corner from the turbo cab's launch, do I give up my #1 spot and wait a bit for PDK? I'm leaning towards waiting a little longer if necessary, which hopefully it wont be. Perhaps they'll get the heat issues solved & PDK will be available by the turbo cab's launch. It's going to be one sick ride that's for sure, can't wait.



    Hey Stradale, I have become sort of friend with the GM and he gave me his word after selling my white TT that I can have a Turbo anytime. Well I called him after 2 weeks of selling my TT (can't stand being without the TT) and he stuck to his word and moved me up the ladder. They always prefer local buyers over remote. He is a very, very nice guy which is hard to find these days in car biz. I am seriosly debating between Atlas grey/black int, black top or black on black or Basalt on black. Top will probably be black on all 3 options.

    What do you think of Atlas with blue int & blue top?



    Having a good contact at the dealer goes a loooooong way. I've dealt w/ all types and feel now I've finally got a guy that I'm really happy with. Porsche nut too, 997 turbo owner..........I'm not a fan of blue, the black just looks more serious, sharper to me. The triple black/ or triple black w/ basalt is the way I'd go.



    Black with natural brown leather or sand beige can work too.

    In any case the turbo cab will also have the ugly Sport Chrono wart upon the dashboard...

    I am the only guy on RENNTEAM that likes the wart. Reminds me of the gauges on the dash I used to have in my muscle cars. I even use the wart. When my wife gets out to pick something up from the store, I point at it and tell her ' see that, I'm timing you,,,if you're not back in 5 minutes I'm leaving...lol! kidding of course but it's a legit use.

    Your wife is able to go in a store and come out in less than 5 mins????????

    You are indeed a very lucky man! You have the GT3-RS of wives!

    There are also pictures of a silver one...but only from the back.

    Re: new pictures again..

    One thing I'd like to see. On my '04 C4S Cab, they rolled out a really nice lower rocker on the body. This turbo from the back shot really needs something. Not as beefy as some of the aftermarket cheese out there, but just a little umph on the lower body.

    Re: new pictures again..

    Dario,are you thinking about Turbo Cabrio???? too much pics by you....
