    997 TT S Engine Sound

    I know it will be speculations but what do you think about the engine sound - both when in idle and when accelerating - from the upcoming 997 TT S version. I know it's a bit hard to get a "growly" sound with the twin turbos but do you think we can expect a "better" engine sound compare to the 996 TT and 996 TT S?

    I can help out with a rumor only: I heard that development tried very hard to get a decent sound out of the 997 TT engine. I don't have a clue if this means that the 997 TT sounds throatier than the 996 TT but I suppose there isn't too much difference. Regarding the Turbo S, I doubt there is much difference since I don't think that there will be a Porsche sport exhaust for the Turbo models.

    I was hoping that you would say something about this, RC. Thank you very much. And if the dev. department has been trying hard to make the sound decent, I'm sure it will be to our satisfaction! (I'm on the list for a 997 TT S Cab here in Sweden so it's like waiting for a baby again for me )

    Per,

    I have noticed with my 996TTS (it's a cab), that with the top down, the engine sounds quite loud, with a high-pitched scream when the forced induction maxes at 4,000-5,000 rpm, and it's alot quieter top up (at least quiet inside the car, but louder for those on the sidewalk watching the car rush by ). You might want to consider a 997TTSCab when it comes out so you can enjoy the engine sound with the top down without the car's insulation blocking it out when the top is up.

    Per,

    I see you are on the list for the 997TTSCab (as am I here in the USA): "Smart minds think alike."

    Al Pettee, I like you! I agree 100%. I have a 996 4S Cab with the Porsche Sport Exhaust and the engine sound with the top down is so nice, especially when the sun is burning in your face! I can't wait for the TT S Cab. Good luck with yours!

    Agree on the 996TTS creating quite the roar in mid-range bursts. Was recently driving alongside a pal's 996TTS in my 996TTS Coupe (all closed up) on the fwy and the roar of his car doing 80-120MPHish bursts on the fwy was very audible and enjoyable even from inside my closed car.

    Prob w/996TTS is its launch from, say, front of a restaurant/hotel in a city setting....as one chick described it, 996TTS unfortunately sounds like a docile Toyota in terms of urban "presence" though car guys realize it can destroy most any car on the autobahn/in the twisties....

    Just put in an order for a 997GT3, which may arrive before 997TTS....I figure w/PSM and PDK, GT3 will be a far more interesting car dynamically and aurally than any 997TTS.....sometimes "less is more"....

    Love the way you think.. GT3 is much more appealing to me than Turbo.


    BTW: Any news yet on a 997 GT3RS...Should be a pants-wetting experience
