    I need your help please.

    Hello all ,

    I am seriously considering replacing my 997S Convertible with the TT Convertible. To make up my mind I need your help in answering a couple of questions. The first one is directed to the people who upgraded to the TT from the 997S; is their a great power difference between the two cars? And is it worth the price difference?
    Secondly, can anyone confirm the release date of the power kit for the Turbo. Since I am going for power (The regular 997 is better looking than the Turbo IMO), there is no way for me to get a Turbo with less than 500hp.

    Thanks

    Re: I need your help please.

    I had a 997S and can tell you that the power difference is huge. If you must have 500 h.p., so be it. In reality it's just a number. 480 or 500, they are, and will be, remarkable powerplants. I personally think that the 997 looks archaic next to the turbo. I could not go back.

    yarub, my comment wasn't aimed at you. Had it been aimed at you, I'd say you shouldn't hesitate and just buy the Turbo .
