    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    Yeah but looking carefully at the dashboard, STILL no XM/Sirius satellite radio

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    The Car's suspension and roadholding is so good, it doesnt even need a steering wheel !! I always knew Porsche was on to something special...

    I would certainly be interested to know the make and model of the watch too

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    No back seats for Turbo?

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    Cup holders are so last year, now its a built in sun visors and work space on the dash.

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    You guys sound like Nicks echo....

    Those smiles are actually because of just selling the train company Porsches new railroad Sport Chrono system

    Shame about his wrist watch. No Porsche matte silver looking titanium IWC chronograph for him?

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    horrible visibility due to the huge A pillar though

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    I bet it handles like "it was on rails".

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    """"

    Wiedeking: "We are using railways because we care so much about roads."

    At the New Berlin Train Station on Friday, the CEO of Deutsche Bahn AG, Hartmut Mehdorn, symbolically presented a state-of-the-art electric locomotive with exclusive Porsche styling to Dr. Wendelin Wiedeking, CEO of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. The new "Porsche locomotive" is a 6,400 kilowatt 182 series electric locomotive, which can accelerate from zero to 200 km/h, or 124 mph, in around 20 seconds. In future, it will be used to pull heavy goods trains through the whole of Germany.

    With this gesture, the Bahn boss thanked the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer for its ongoing activities in shifting the transport of vehicles and components to railways. Mehdorn said: "Porsche is a good example of how logistics organization can be both intelligent and environmentally friendly. It is precisely here that our strengths lie as an integrated mobility and logistics group."

    The sports car manufacturer will shift engine and component deliveries from roads to railways for the first time in the spring of 2006, with the help of newly developed rail wagons and megatrailers. Wiedeking said: "Thanks to our close cooperation with Bahn, we are already avoiding around 15,000 truck transports every year, which is equivalent to a journey of almost 20 million kilometers." The future shifts, Wiedeking continued, would spare German roads from thousands more truck journeys. Of course, Porsche's actions are not entirely selfless: "As a sports car manufacturer, we are using railways because we care so much about roads," admitted the Porsche CEO.

    Porsche AG began introducing a transport and logistics concept that relies heavily on Deutsche Bahn in February 2001. All vehicles intended for overseas exports have since been transported from the Porsche loading station in Kornwestheim in special wagons to the North Sea ports in Emden and Bremerhaven. On their return journey, the wagons are loaded with Boxster and Cayman models from Finland intended for customers in the south of Europe. Porsche also relies on Deutsche Bahn at its plant in Leipzig: Everyday, preassembled body shells are brought to the plant's own station on a special train and are introduced to the production line from there. Also, Cayenne vehicles intended for overseas export from Leipzig are transported to the North Sea ports exclusively by rail.

    The watch is a Breitling Navitimer (Yellow Gold).

    http://www.breitling.ch/en/models/navitimer/navitimer/

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    I don't think it's a breitling, it has an extra button on the back side and i believe four dials instead of three, but it does look alot like the navitimer...

    Re: Sensational picture of Dr. Wiedeking piloting the 997 Tu

    You can get the Navitimer with 2 to 4 dials depending on the version. The big button is still a mystery... maybe it is special made for a special guy
