    ?480-500. Do we get to vote? Or will 500 be more likely if we can get Porsche executives and marketing to read the rennteam forum over the next 2 months?

    Re: 997 Turbo Scoop!!!! March 2006 !!!!

    Maybe its rated at 480, but with a "over boost" trick that allows 500hp for a short time with a fully open throttle. Saabs do that.

    The funny part: most dealers worldwide don't have any info on the 997 Turbo, they just use infos found on websites, heard from customers, technical/regional reps, etc.
    So please don't be too enthusiastic about what your dealer told you, especially regarding the introduction date.
    The launch can't be in march if the dealer introduction (the well known dealer only events somewhere in Portugal, Spain, whereever) is much later. I think JUNE is still a good guess. For Europe.

    This is no speculation, more of an extremely short resumee of all the rumors floating around.

    Re: 997 Turbo Scoop!!!! March 2006 !!!!

    This week's Autocar (http://www.autocarmagazine.com/) has the 997T on the cover. They claim to have a SCOOP !!

    450 HP? I don't call this a scoop, I call this BS.

    Re: 997 Turbo Scoop!!!! March 2006 !!!!

    in all fairness RC, it is a scoop...just one of BS LOL.

    Edmunds' "scoop" uses even a larger spread of HP rumours (from 450-500).

    They must be using a super-duper-pooper-scooper.

    As Bostonmini implied.

    I'm just guessing, but I hope that your use of the plural verb "are" rather than the singular "is" does mean that we need have fewer concerns on your behalf regarding what you really meant when you misspelt it as "pennis".

    Re: 997 Turbo Scoop!!!! March 2006 !!!!

    PNA has a scheduled "product launch" event at a race track in the northeast in june. this is based on the race track 2006 tentative schedule.

    What does Progressive Neuronal Abiotrophy have to do with it? or perhaps you were referring to Peptide Nucleic Acid or maybe Palestine National Authority - now that would make sense!!

    Re: 997 Turbo Scoop!!!! March 2006 !!!!

    very funny john but i meant PCNA.

    Re: 997 Turbo Scoop!!!! March 2006 !!!!

    Dealers have no info yet. Some German sales people have seen the car in the factory and confirm that it looks like the pictures we have seen recently.
    Apart from that, they have the same source of info than we have: they heard it from people who know somebody who knows somebody else. They might also get good chunks of their newsflow from a certain internet forum
