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

    Hi there, any other photos or spyshots going around?

    Maybe rumors?

    Re: HOT: Pictures from Facelift 997!!!!

    I want a new one too, but I am also concerned. I think the closer we get to the spring the more we will know. I don't drive my 911 too much during the winter months, so I am trying to hold off. That being said, if I got a great deal I might buy one now.

    Re: HOT: Pictures from Facelift 997!!!!

    911 don't keep their values that well, just like regular cars. The facelift won't influnce the drop that much and anyway you can get a discount on 997 right now which you probably won't get when the new model comes out. Ah, the joys of capitalism, everything is priced in.

    Re: HOT: Pictures from Facelift 997!!!!

    And I just missed this opportunity: I negotiated a 2005 911C2, 11k miles, sealgrey, Navigation down from $69900 to 65000, but still had some reservations (a leasing return with multiple drivers, too far away from home...). The car sold yesterday for $63k - too bad. I wish that 997 facelift would be known in the market so that more owners put their present model out for sale!

    I have also learned that any 911 is at least $20k cheaper in the States than in Europe / Germany: another reason to buy over here and take it back home to good old Germany someday.

    Re: HOT: Pictures from Facelift 997!!!!

    Any other spyshot of 997 facelift??





    Re: HOT: Pictures from Facelift 997!!!!

    Just sold my 997 turbo. I hope the 997 gets a few more ponies or I going back to my beloved BMW...a 2008 M-3 to be exact.

    A word from the dealer

    According to him (and I have no proof either way) that what we will get earliest next spring, but more likely Fall '07 or even Spring '08 if sales are strong, is a 997S with 375hp or just under the current X51 output. AWD cars will also get PTM. This is 997.5 and it may get other goodies like official iPod adaptors etc.

    The face lift we have spy shots of is actually not 997.5 but early 998 mules being tested which we probably won't see before 2011 or 2012.

    Sorry but I have no way of knowing if this is true or not, but it's worth throwing into the mix.

    Why did you sell your turbo so soon? Did the car not live up to your expectations?

    Absolutely fantastic car. I had an opportunity to get all of my money back so I seized the moment. I was able to enjoy the car for 2500 miles and can always get another if I regret the sale.

    Re: HOT: Pictures from Facelift 997!!!!

    ...so you broke it in for someone else. There's a market there

    That was part of my sales pitch.

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

    Reminds me of my latest rendering .... that is funny I did a similar design:

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

    My dealer offered me a January build for my C4S. I declined and he now has me 1st in line for the refresh. Hopefully it will be sooner, spring '07, than later ,fall '07. PTM is what I am looking for, if there is any HP increase, that would be icing on the cake.

    Very poor resale and the lack of competitive h.p., are two reasons Porsche may lose me as a customer.

    Has your dealer told you that the refresh will be for MY08??

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

    Just think these threads should be linked to have everything in one place:

    http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=284042&an=0&page=0#284042


    ...as there are some *new* photos on this other thread that don't seem to be here yet.

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

    ...jetzt werde ich mit meiner Neubestellung wohl noch 6 - 9 Monate warten müssen.

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

    NO, as usual, they, the dealer, are like Sgt. SChultz, THEY KNOW NOTHING!
    I am relying on this site as well as other web resources to make my decision.
    Sorry it took so long to answer your question

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

    Someone have other pics of 997 Facelift to post???

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

    This is an interesting photoshop near reality
    Looks awesome in the rear.





    Thank's to ale75

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

    Very nice work. I hope that the facelift actually looks similar; with another 15-20 ponies under the hood.

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

    Yeah off course...and a new tyres

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

    Front looks more like the Boxster again - I thought they wanted more differentiation, not less. I like the back though...

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

    No rear diffuser though in the back bumper as Lars initially reported

    Traditionally do the GT3/Turbo get facelifts also before the next model (998) comes out or is it just the base Carrera?

    I guess the GT3/Turbo will also get the facelift.

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

    Personally I don't think the GT3 needs a facelift as it's soooo beautiful as is

    The same cannot be said however for the Turbo IMHO. It looks like it was designed in a major rush, especially the back. So could definitely do with some design tweaks.

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

    Just talked to my dealer, PDK will be ready in summer 2007 , all Porsche models will get it, not sure about the turbo though.

    Facelift of the 997 will be from 2008 onwards.

    face lift + pdk in 08 production starts making sense
