    Merry RSmas!

    Just got a call from my dealer today, I wil be getting my RS in December. Man, this is definitely going to be the coolest Christmas in my life!
    Will keep you posted how the sport tires will do in the snow, gonna be a great fun zero grip drive ...

    P.S.: It's orange with PCCB and PCM.

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    you lucky dog!!!!!!!!! watch out for that x-mas snow :-)

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    you're paying 997TT money for your car... will you be tracking it? was that the basis of your decision?

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    Rrroman..... Exellent!!
    Please post pics ( lots of them) when you get your car... specially the ones in the snow

    The basis was he wanted an RS not a Turbo. pretty simple I think. what makes one think the Turbo is so special?? what? is it special because it has a turbo? ... I wouldn't and will never buy a turbo.
    \ The news of you picking up the RS is great!!!! enjoy it!
    sorry if I sound harsh.. I simply hate to hear comments about price? if you want it buy it. I have to say the price on the 997 RS is OK as they are most (if not all ) already spoken for? IMHO the turbo is simply a fast heavy pig. hahha

    Wow, I do agree that a lot of people feel if one spends 110+ on a car they have to get a Turbo. If I was buying now I would get a 997S Cab with X51. Yes I know close to a Turbo but you just can't replace the drop top.

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    Congrads on the car..

    Agree- love, love my baby! Top down...


    Congratulations- that's one AWESOME Pcar!!! Orange should be tight!

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    Rrroman,

    I would have the calipers painted orange by the factory.

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    Awesome! What color are you getting?

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    That's my favorite Porsche congrats

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    wow,very good news 4 u.
    Post pictures so we can share the fun .
    congrats hé

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS! You've certainly behaved well Congrats!

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    Congratulations, what an excellent christmas gift.

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    The turbo is not even CLOSE to the best car Porsche makes (and I am not referring to the CGT or GT2). A boxster is more fun, IMO (and yes, I owned a 996TT and a boxster). Now the GT3 RS...THAT makes my motor run. Go man go!

    Re: Merry RSmas!

    I think the 997tt and the GT3/RS are very different animals. Even though I have only driven a 996tt but not the 997 yet.

    While the tt is the perfect Gran Tourismo, well defined, powerful but still safe and comfortable the GT3/RS is more of a toy. It gives you an entirely different experience. It is harsh, loud, requires much more attention but then again gives you great fun, particularly on the track. So I was looking for a purely toy car, that's why I think the RS is better for me than the tt.

    Hope this answers you're question.

    I agree! Although I was simply stunned by the RS I saw at the Paris motorshow, one thing didn't please me, the orange doesn't match the yellow callipers!

    Excellent choice by the way! There's no car I'd rather have
