    In case anyone has doubts about ordering PASM

    Having Sport Chrono and PASM on my 997 with 19-in wheels is like have three cars in one. Even if I never go on a track, I'm having the time of my life on the backroads near my home. It's like an amusement park!!! PASM is worth every penny. I love it when I can feel the car squat down, stiffen, and accelerate like a bat out of hell, and when the stiffnest gets on my nerves or more likely when my wife is in the car, press a button and you instantly tame the beast. This is the first electronically controlled tuned suspension that works to the advantage of the driver, not just the factory and cost engineers! It's a major success in automotive history like Porsche's braking system development!

    Re: In case anyone has doubts about ordering PASM

    thats a nice 997!

    Re: In case anyone has doubts about ordering PASM

    I don't think Porsche is too proud of its recent "braking system development" but PASM is certainly a very interesting technology and bodes well for "driver in control" aides as apposed to the "driver as passenger" technology that was creaping into cars in the late '90s.

    Early days. Anyway, that was a great paragraph and made me think good thoughts about the 997 gadgets ... Mr Porsche should steal your copy and sack their "bland and blander" advertising company. The 997 is a great 911, but Porsche seems to have found a way to make it uninteresting in their marketing. Aargh!

    Re: In case anyone has doubts about ordering PASM

    Was it Porsche, who developed automotive ABS technology in the 1980s? I'm getting too old. Memory is going bad. Something else was going bad too but I can't remember what at the moment. Maybe I'll remember in a few minutes. Stay tuned (tooned).

    are those wheels Carrera Classic 19"? Looks great1

    Question for Tony.....

    Your signature shows "Triple Black" for a 997 Coupe.

    For all the years I've been a car freak, 'triple' always referred to a cabriolet (top color, exterior car color, interior color).

    What's up with that?

    Re: Question for Tony.....

    It's exterior black, interior black and wheels painted black.

    I might be wrong here but I thought ABS was a joint development by Bosch and Mercedes. Wasn't the Mercedes "S" class of the period the first car so equipped?

    Re: Question for Tony.....

    Thanks Andrew & Senra!

    Eric, on my car's price sticker, Porsche refers to the color of the car's body, then the roof color, and finally the interior color. Yeah, it's a hard top, but if you can't sleep at night, for you, I will start calling it a double black car, my friend.

    P.S. You stink. You know I loved my Boxster!
