    How is that different from any car? Most reviewers have found the loose rear a problem with the 997TT.

    Also, AUTOCAR wrote that the exhaust of the 997TT "sounded utterly unmemorable and the car did not have the balance or fluidity of the gallardo".

    Hey I am sure it is a safer and quieter car than the gallardo and 430. But if safety and quietness is what I am after, I will buy a Volvo.



    Rock on nick

    I will be purchasing a new car very soon. It will be a dd/weekend warrior/Black thong dropper. My choices are a 997S and Wiesmann Roadster. They are both compelling compromises in their own right. Their is no need for a GT3 or Turbo in So-Cal. Unless your a would-be racer, or always in a hurry.

    If i had money for flash i would yield to the 430. Just like clarkson said. It makes you feel like a little kid again (as far as the emotions felt while driving it). You cant beat that. Maybe the GT3 .. maybe ..

    Write these down and memorize them. Within the limits of
    tire adhesion and velocity these are the 6 basic 911 rules.

    1. The 911 "twitchy handling" in cornering occurs if you chicken out and lift off the gas, thereby lightening the torque load effect and transfering the weight of the car and upsetting its balance.

    2. ALL 911's respond to power when it comes to handling. No power and you get no handling, its that simple.

    3. Don't step on the gas unless you really mean it.

    4. When in doubt, press the gas pedal harder and hold on.

    5. Repeat item 2.

    6. Repeat item 4.

    Its ultimate handling capabilities will not be achieved by the meak, timid or the inexperienced.

    Class over.





    I concur.

    Nick, I actually don't understand why you keep engaged with Porsche's products, not only the 997 Turbo.
    Not happy with your Ferrari?

    As good or bad the muted exhaust sound may be, there still is no other car that combines everyday driveability with supercar performance the way the Turbo does. If you need excitement, keep / buy a Ferrari.



    I believe German engineering and product quality are the best in the world. My quest is to change Porsche management philosphy regarding its models, their development, marketing and customer needs. I believe that if Porsche would give a freer hand to its performance engineers and reduce their insatiable appettite for profit, the Company would be better for it.



    No Nick, your quest is to bust balls and be a troll on Porsche messageboards. Porsche is doing just fine. They have a model for every need. There's a reason why they're the most profitable car company in the world and why even Ferrari's design chief said they're the car company that "has it going on." If I want a raw, fast, car I'll get a GT3. If I want a fast, more GTish, car, I'll get the 997TT. See how it works? I suggest you get more familiar with Porsches models before posting more ignorant messages.

    David
