    Fritz, so true. In fact its great that Porsche has a 6600 rpm redline on the 997TT.

    Its just that sometimes you want to have it all - high revs, high torque and high hp.



    And best of all: low weight.......



    With all of the impact standards and demands for luxury fittings, fat chance of that happening!

    When have you been to the U.S.

    I know! That's why I chose this emoticon:

    I think it's very clever of Porsche to configure the Sport Chrono package as the "power kit" option.

    Now, instead of an "S" following the Turbo script on the deck lid, one needs to watch for the "dash wart" to know how special a Turbo might be.

    After the word gets around about the wart-equipped Turbos being really fast, the street value of all dash warts on any 997 will be on the rise from association effects.

    The overboost option is way more usable for USA customers than the "S" (X50) motor, anyway. The 6-speed versions of the X50 aren't any faster than the normal car in typical street encounters. In some cases, the X50's turbo lag makes it slower for low-speed street racing than the standard issue motor. Only Tiptronic X50 (or Turbo S) setups actually benefit accelleration below 100 MPH.

    A 997TT Tiptronic w/dash-wart seems like the uber-street racer to me. I'd take over-boost over more turbo lag any day.

    --------------------







    Exactly Mike

    You get a 10% increase in Torque for a fraction of what some of you paid for the X50 kit.

    There's no jokes on my behalf, only tests to see if some of you are able to make quick and accurate conclusions.

    Some of you fail miserably.

    How much does the Sport Chrono option for the 997TT cost?

    Re: I feel a 997 turbo "S" in the horizon... Do you?

    Well, how much more effective is this overboost function to a common "aftermarket" chipping of a turbo?

    It's the same thing, AFAIK, except the aftermarket chip doesn't artificially retard the boost at 4k revs...

    The overboost feature is definitively no powerkit. If they should ever sell it like that they are aiming at ignorant buyers.

    "Nonsense" is referring to CFs "joke" regarding the misprinted tip and manual times. I did not consider this joke funny at all given the bad news regarding the 997TT.

    US customers do not "need" a TT by definition. Serious driving is impossible in the US (except on a track)...



    Nobody NEEDS a 911 Turbo but we'd all like one!

    Re the sport chrono plus, I think you are both right. It is indeed no powerkit in the sense that the 996 X50 was. But it certainly increases power over the torque range of the boost function so that's pretty amazing.

    I don't know of the price of that option is public but my little finger tells me it's gonna be much more dinero than the Sport chrono package on the Carrera!

    And your big finger is having a blast thinking of the profits this will bring to your stock
