    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    Very nice, prettier than the hard top. Thanks for sharing.

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    That tail looks awful. It really looks like it was added on as an after thought very similar to some of the ricers here in S. California.

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    The tail is fine...it's the angle of the shot that amplifies it. It's nearly the same as the coupe.

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    dont disagree that the CAB is nice... but prettier than the hard top.. you must be joking..

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    Cabs look best in black.

    - Sorry Eric!

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    A turbo should never be a cab. Nothing more needs to be said.

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    Thanks Ron for the link. It's Triple BLK or Basalt/BLK for me as well. I dont give a damn if it gets dusty. Juts have to wipe it off OFTEN

    I agree, it would look much better without it That's why the Cab 4S looks way much better.

    Been thinking about that since the first pic showed black/black TT cab. Stunning, and because it diminishes all the quirky angles on the car, it really is perfect.

    But we all know what Black means....and I'd need Prozac if I did that.

    I keep the GR Cab clean as a whistle, and could possibly manage Black just fine, but too many people shaking their heads tell me I should stay Red if I did that.

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    ...TT really looks good in black!

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    That tail is not much worst than the roll hoops on a F430 convertible.

    Black is a full time job

    I have owned several black Porsches and the paint they use is the softest paint I have ever had the (dis)pleasure of owning. They look great coming off the dealer but inspite of my best efforts, began to show surface scratches almost immediately. If they could figure out a way to do with black what Mercedes is doing with their paints (nano particle technology) then I would be a happy owner of a black Porsche.

    Re: 997 Turbo cab. to be released soon

    it looks good

    Re: Black is a full time job

    Having just taken delivery of a black on black 997TT the dealer offered a paint protector called "protector plus" .. 8 year warranty ... supposed to prevent fading, etc .. we will see ..

    Re: Black is a full time job

    With all due respect, I can't really understand Nick's comment about the rear wing. It looks the same to me as that on a coupe. Isn't it? I think the TT's lines and the shape of the rear wing are simply accentuated by the fact that it's a Cab. Whether that appeals or not is purely a matter of personal taste...

    You got ripped.

    Prevent fading? Are you serious?

    Yeah, take it into the desert and leave it for a year, see how it goes.

    But in everyday conditions in most populated areas, this is BS. Porsche paint stands up for a long time IF it is taken care of. It should not fade unless it's abused.

    Nothing will prevent SWIRLS though....other than perfect car care.

    You must have forgotten the fact that Nick will always be trashing Porsche cars no matter what, he needs to do that constantly in order to justify his Ferrari ownership. Plus our need for him to humor us every few days.

    Re: Black is a full time job

    Honestly, I hadn't forgotten about his bias against Porsche cars but I was kind of hoping he would have some basis for his observation. Guess I should have known that sometimes he just vents his disapproval for no reason...
