    997 tt: a lot of presence in the flesh!

    crossed a silver 997tt on the highway close to heidelberg last saturday. I was driving on the fast lane as was he coming from the opposite direction on the highway. we were both not going fast due to traffic. i was in my x5 sitting quite high, so i saw him coming on from far.
    first thought was: ah, a 997
    second thought: this is a real fat one!
    third thought: i saw the slants in the airinduction holes - hey, this it is a turbo!!
    fourth thought, seeing him in the rearview mirror for a split second: no doubt it is a turbo as the trapezoid design in the back makes him very different from all others.

    so while this sighting only lasted about three to five seconds, it was clear to me that this car looked like the king of 997s! highly recongnizable and a lot of presence!

    cheers

    Sweet! Thanks for your thoughts!
    It's always nice to cross nice motors on the other side of the motorway, keeps me awake on long journeys, when you have to stick to 140 kmh!

    Re: 997 tt: a lot of presence in the flesh!

    you are welcome!

    btw, someone suggested the slant in the intake might be a coverup. i definitely think they are there to stay because it allows immediate distinction of the car from the front. probably some tuner will develop that as an aftermarket kit for the 996tt

    Thanks for sharing! Can't wait to see it in the flesh... but guess I am not alone on this forum waiting for that

    Re: 997 tt: a lot of presence in the flesh!

    fifth thought: damn, now i've crashed into the Hyundai in front of me, only because of watching the 997tt in the rearview mirror...

    Just kidding, thanks for sharing, turbolite!
