    nice. ... good pics

    Re: New spy pics

    I actually saw that 997 Turbo (?) in a trailer in Weissach; as I was leaving the facility. I said outloud to the engineer that was driving me out ( in a new GT-2 ) " Wow... there is a 997
    Turbo ! " He said " You didn't see that ! " But of course, I had
    seen it ! I'll never forget it. Revvv

    Hey Larry,

    That was a great way to make sure you don't get to visit Weissach any more!

    450hp 997 Turbo? I doubt it.

    If they don't push that to 500 by release time, they'll plow it into the ground.

    Also, the idea of a Targa is hard to imagine. More Targas sat around unsold than base anythings here in the US.

    Oh well, great shots, and I can't wait to see official news soon.


    Re: New spy pics

    Thanks buddy cool pictures

    Re: New spy pics

    Fritz, I'm just reporting what I saw; after the fact. I didn't
    take any pictures or report any breaking news. I think we all know there are a variety of prototypes running around Weissach every day; of all types and descriptions. I just happen to see the "Baddest" one; and I'm telling you about the expereience. I don't think that is a problem; unless you
    work at Weissach, for Porsche....... Revvv

    You're right. The latest info I have (call it a "rumor" ) is that the preliminary technical specs for the engine show a 5 at the beginning. I hope it is true. We shouldn't forget that the 997 Turbo is due around EARLIEST spring 2006 and by that time, competitors like the SL probably get a 612 HP engine. HP figures sell, Porsche has to learn that lesson too, no way to ignore it (unless they don't want to sell cars... ).

    Re: New spy pics

    Longer, wider, taller? I like the 997 styling changes, but I am leery of automakers making subsequent models bigger. I like the size of my 996. I'm not sure I'll like it as much if it grows. I may have to go back in time and pick up a 88-89 911.

    Re: New spy pics

    I'm with you on that one. I don't want a bigger car, that's what an S class is for.

    Re: New spy pics

    Yeah. the wheel base of the 996 is just about perfect for a sport car, the track can be a bit wider. The overall size is just about right, perfect if lose a couple inches overhang, esppecially in the front.
