    NEW 997 Cab. pics






    pics from 4car




    Looks like there will be a 997S Cab. afterall.

    Re: NEW 997 Cab. pics

    Now that you published these pictures, I can say it:
    YES, there will be a 997 S Cab.

    Re: NEW 997 Cab. pics

    I never doubted that, it wouldn't make sense for Porsche not to make the 997S cab, since most of the potential customers would preffer the cab with base 997S specs and not the base 997, just like most coupe customers will opt for the 997S instead of the base 997. The 997S is not just a solitary variant, its in essense the new "997 carrera", and the base 997... well we know what that is. So I expect the 997S to get get all the model variants the carrera always gets (coupe & cab and RWD & AWD... and a Targa if there is a 997model targa afterall).

    Re: NEW 997 Cab. pics

    I think Porsche should have built the 997 in the 350hp " S " 3.8L spec only, which would allow a bigger " gap " in the pricing and performance structure in their Boxster /911 line up so that higher performance 320 hp 3.6L 987 Boxsters in open and coupe form could fill that $60-70K USD base price range . Then a real 911 " S " with the rumored 380 powerkit engine with the next Turbo's wide body could be intro'd in 2 years .

    Re: NEW 997 Cab. pics

    Does the 997 body really need to get any more wide than it already is????

    Are you asking forum members for a "technical" assessment, or starting a poll of what they would like to see?

    (This question is not meant to be sarcastic. I just want to clarify how yours was really intended to be read. )

    So true, what would be the point of having a cab without a sport exhaust option...

    looks good I like it , even though I'm a coupe guy but I don't mind a nice cab.
