One of the most memorable things about my 996 C4S(s) and 996tt(s) were their unflappable driving ability in terrible weather. Today was a great day to try out the 997tt and see how it feels on (very) rain slick roads and in downpours. Same feeling - great confidence, almost like driving on dry roads. Steering is perfect, little hydroplaning in puddles and I could easily keep up a pace that was too fast because of fear of the lesser cars around me. BTW, this is my first sport shifter equipped 911 and it is a marvel compared to the "normal shifter" - well worth the money.
