    New 997 in AutoWeek

    Really nice looking: a shorter front end with a squared off trunk line, round headlights, etc. Due in late September, so for the USA about January of 2005. I imagine the turbo in January or September of 2006.

    Re: New 997 in AutoWeek

    Anyone else agree that the turbo is that far off? I would actually agree, it seems only natural they will do the usual, sell as many of each type of 911 before offering the "next".

    Re: New 997 in AutoWeek

    The 997 Turbo won't show up before spring 2005. EARLIEST!
    More likely is spring 2006, this is actually the pre-planned date as far as I heard.

    i think it depends on how the 996 turbo will sell next MY. if all customers rush for the 997 carrera, even people who normally could afford a TT, porsche can probably react.

    this is quite exciting anyway... would someone buy an "old" turbo when a brand new widebody S2 is available?

    without the convertible version i wouldn't be too sure.

    Re: New 997 in AutoWeek

    I think late 2005 (2005 is going to be a huge year in my opinion, m6, new ml, audi suv , s class and so on and so on)

    I remember reading about 5 or 6 years ago that in Portugal, that there were more people buying the 993 (the 4s and turbo) than buying the new (at the time) 996.

    Last August i went to a dealer and there were lots of 993 with the price tag of 70k to 80k and when i returned there last december those cars we're already sold.

    So, i think that Porsche wont have too much problem selling the soon to be old 996.

    As a matter of fact i'm sure many people don't even know that the 997 is coming these year.

    Best Regards.
