    997 TURBO arrived...

    Finally after 8 months of wait today I picked up my 997 TT.

    I did around 80 Km on those 80 km 20 of them were on small twisty back roads. I was imprssed by the stability and the composure of the car during sharp turns.

    I was also very impressed by the pedal feel/response of the brakes, no noise what so ever from them. I cannot speak of fading because I'm in the breakin period. But what is for sure there are so much worth it even for the few Km I did today.I love them period.

    The short shifter is simply awsome , no notch, smooth as silk, the throws are incredibly precised and short, each gears goes after one another, love it period.

    The engine is so smooth and ready to deliver the mighty power even though I did not go over 4000rpm but press pretty hard the gaz pedal till 4000rpm.

    I need more time to get used to rate the suspension but I was definitely not disapointed by them.

    The fit and finish is as equally impressive as Audi.


    It's short review (more impressions rather than a review) because I need more time with this stunning machine before I can give a full report on it.

    One word on the exhaust I love the deep growl at low RPM...

    I can tell you that it was very hard to put it to the garage as one can imagine!

    Here are some pics

    PS The car is meteor interior: two tone Black/stone grey

    I live between Paris and London.
    My 2nd Porsche I bought from Pierre-Yves yes.
    Very nice guy. I went to Zuffenhausen with him for a factory visit.
    Found a much better deal for my 3rd car though so I am no longer a Zell Motors client. I still go there for servicing though of course.
