    I prefer the 997TT biased forum also. IMHO mastiffdog you should get the clear side markers on that badboy. Suncoast motorsports sells them for 28 bucks.



    Done! That was an "early" photo, like from 3 weekends ago. Clears look much better now - agreed...thanks, Dog

    Let's face it, the 997TT provides you with the things you're looking for in a car: Exotic handling and looks, high speeds, and with reliability to boot! I would drive any Porsche car cross country in a second before I would consider doing that with an 8-cylinder "Ferrari" or a 10 cylinder Lambo. I also indorse the other opinions here about using these things well north of 250 kph. Unfortunately, American road rules keep that to a minimum. (And one reason why I went for a very loaded--more than a well optioned 997TT--997S Cab along with European Delivery so I could see that other side of 250kph. (I swear I never went over 285!).

    Enjoy your TT. It is an excellent car but not for everyone. Not is the Gallardo or the Ferrari.

    So long as you find the car providing you with most of what your driving needs are, then the car is right for you.


    completly agree!

    I cant believe the amount of posts there are that the F430 or Corvette or Gallardo is 10ths of a second faster. I love my TT. Am not disappointed and would not by any of these other cars. The F430 and Gallardo are too flashy, and the Corvette is to Brash. I Love my new car. I love the feel of the steering, Brakes and Scary fast acceleration. Let me know if you feel the same way




    I agree with you, I don't have a 997 not a turbo but I'm a little bit tyred because of so many posts about the 10th of a second to 100km/h and maybe 10 km/hour more vmax. Here we talk about the turbo not about the gallardo, corvette or the 430!

    Horses for courses as ever.
    I can't agree with this stuff about north of 250, I break out in a sweat if I pass a 100mph! I just don't enjoy high speeds. However, that second gear hammer from 20 - 60 in my 997S is worth every penny I paid for the car and more.

    I was ready to get in line for a TT to get more of that, and still may do eventually but now I'm shopping for a Gallardo. I think the TT is the better car for sure, but I never track or visit Germany and I just don't see Lambo's where I live, will be nice to be different.

    Whatever people love is good for me, we are all so priviledged anyway to even have these choices.
