    Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    "Porsche has got it right again! The 997 is the best 911 since the car first appeared in 1963 - it has tremendous handling, startling power delivery and a wonderful engine note. It's also a fine looker, with some of the original's magic restored. For UK buyers already on the waiting list, September will seem a long way away."

    Exactly what i hoped it'll have, best features of old-school and new-school combined:)

    Re: Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    Yup, according to Autoexpress they got the sound just right:
    "As you would expect, the Porsche is a fabulous machine to drive. The distinctive flat-six drones and growls just as its air-cooled predecessors did, while the acceleration is effortless."

    Can't imagine what it will sound like with the XLF-option!

    What does XLF stand for anyway, Xtra Loud Fahrzeug?

    what are the group of buttons on the door panel about midway down between the speakers? window winders are at top of panel. are they electric seat controls?

    Looks like it's for the side mirrors...could be wrong though

    Re: Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    I've heard quite a few people complaining about the interior, but I can't see what the problem is. It looks very nice, very functional.

    Does anyone know if the interior shown in this picture is completely standard or does it have 'extra' leather? There's leather on top the dash and around the centre console. Is that standard or part of a 'leather package' like those found on the 996?

    Rest assured that all that leather is not standard!! The preliminary order guides have leather seats & full leather options, like the 996 did.

    Re: Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    OPC's in uk have stated that all Uk cars will have full leather as standard.

    Re: Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    Any info or comments on the new steering and its feel?

    Re: Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    this interior shot looks best yet--


    curious about steering, and how DOES that stereo sound too??

    Re: Autoexpress drives the 997 S

    I doooo like the interior
    I see quality, I wonder what the 997 GT3 will offer...clubsport, leightweight, I can't wait to see. Get that whole mid-console out just like in the 993, that would be awesome...maybe I should try some shopping on that.

    Re: 997 Interior.

    I also think that the interior is the best till now...I can't wait to see the exclusive options for the 997!
