    This weeks (11-7) Autoweek cover story. 997 Turbo/ Cab.

    First public outing - Geneva
    Coupe North American Sales - June 2006
    Cab North American Sales - 2007 - Ughhh.

    HP gain - 30hp to approx. 450 but with 'the power curve flattened out'
    Torque gain - 30 ft-lb to approx 457.

    Also 2006 - GT3, Targa, GT2.


    Hope they're wrong about the cab launch. And about the power output. Please be wrong about the HP/Torque.

    Re: This weeks (11-7) Autoweek cover story. 997 Turbo/ Cab.

    Thanks for the update Stradale. I have my name down for a TT but 450HP will make me cancel the order and if TTS is not more than 500HP that will not do it either. Hope Porsche gets the message

    you will just have to rough it with the 997S Cab for now ...........

    Re: This weeks (11-7) Autoweek cover story. 997 Turbo/ Cab.

    I have also heard from a dealer that it will be only 450hp for the turbo and 480hp for the S.

    450? Disappointing.

    Re: This weeks (11-7) Autoweek cover story. 997 Turbo/ Cab.

    450hp is not a small number. Remember that above 350hp or so, you see diminishing returns, and that to feel a real difference in acceleration, you need at least a 10% change.

    What were you guys expecting, 650hp? You want that, drop another $20k in the car toward an Evolution kit, get a reliable 640hp/670tq on pump gas.

    In my view, if you're very concerned about horsepower, get a Viper and bolt on a couple turbos.
