    I have to say that I'm not very happy about this.

    I think it would be preferable if Porsche kept some items on each range/model specific to that range/model. Otherwise, one ends up with a generic option list across the entire product range. IMO it somewhat reduces the attractiveness of the more expensive models if they share too many items/options with the cheaper models.

    Actually, what bothers me even more is that the brakes on a 987S (the red caliper ones from the 996TT) are better than the brakes on a 997 C2 (black caliper ones) even though it is a much cheaper car just because it is the 'S' model.

    I like to think that the flagship is really head and shoulders above the rest. Sharing so many options from the same parts bin just smacks of too much cost-cutting to me.

    Incorrect.

    987S diameter = 997 diameter.
    987 diameter smaller.
    997S diameter larger.
