    face lift + pdk in 08 production starts making sense



    According to him PDK will come earlier than the facelift. PDK right after the factory holiday summer 2007, facelift not before 2008. PDK will replace tiptronic.

    Porsche's marketing department is really making a good move then.

    PDK probably will draw a fresh wave of buying and then 2nd wave from the face lift

    do you happened to know if PDK will available for GT3?

    Sorry, no info about that.

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

    About 20hp power increase

    Yeah, typically Porsche.

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

    Off course :P

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

    I would think that the 2008 models should hit the streets (USA) around Sept. Or am I mistaken? A hypothetical 20 h.p. increase and PDK would be nice.

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

    I think in spring 2008

    Traditionally, Porsche has started the model year in the Fall of the previous year - why do you think this will be different?

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

    For exaple the new cayenne is expected before spring

    I'm confused -do you mean before Spring of the same model year or before Spring of the following model year?

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

    New cayenne before spring 2007

    First reason, as already said: Cayenne facelift in 2007.
    Second reason: they've just presented the targa. So if the facelift would come already after the factory holiday 2007, the targa would have been on the market for less than one year. I think Porsche won't do that. So presentation or a teaser at the IAA in Frankfurt in September and delivery in early 2008 sounds right.

    MY08 when it comes out. The reason for doing this is it is better to launch a model year early and let it run longer, than launch late and have it be short.

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

    I love the new front! It's much cleaner and has a better linear flow. The back looks a little, well, Japanese.

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

    The next issue of AMS will run a story on the 997 facelift: http://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/auto_motor_und_sport_heft_25_2006.133237.htm

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

    It's in German . . . .
    Where is the article???

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

    Here is a scan of the article
    Main infos about the facelift:

    Introduction in MY '09 (!)
    Engine: approximately + 15 hp, probably direct fuel injection
    PDK: yes, "for sure"

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

    The latest spy pictures. Hope it is not a repost.

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

    rear view

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

    So gents, your opinioin: does that facelift really look any better than the current version?
    I can't help myself but to me it is unnecessary to say the least.

    It's different, makes the pre-facelift look "old" so people buy the "new" modell...

    I agree! To me, the new front bumper makes the car look like an uglier 40th anniversary 996 (the one with the Turbo bumper). I like the current version better.

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

    Driving around in almost uncloaked facelift prototypes... I don't get it, makes no sense if the update is nearly two years away (MY09). IMO the 997-II must be much nearer.

    I fully agree with you, I very much prefer the current version.
