    CGT Model Designation

    What is the internal code for the CGT?

    ie, 996, 997... etc?

    i thought it was 980, but i googled that and it didn't seem right.

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    The number Porsche promoted back in 2002/03 was actually 980. The design of the final CGT was changed quite a lot, but I havent seen any other internal codes for the CGT since.
    Heres a pic of the 980 and a preliminary concept drawing.
    As far as I know Porsche never built a prototype of the 980...only provided the press with phony CGI images.
    Hope this helps

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    It is indeed 980.

    On the other hand, the Cayenne is the 955, but we never call it the 955. Maybe it'll change once the next-generation model comes.

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    The Groom,
    Does the Boxster Coupe/Cayman get a different designation to 987? Or are you not allowed to say?

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    Wouldnt that be 988?

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    C7S.

    Here's a pic of the exhaust assembly while the CGT is on a lift. Notice (upside down) the part number of the muffler:

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    Hey groom,

    will the 997GT3 use the 964 block or the M97 block?

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    So the correct way to designate the CGT is 086...standing on yer head

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    We call *internally* the upcoming Boxster-based coupé the C7. It is a 987 - why should it be anything else?
    All I can tell you, though, is that my coworkers are *very* excited about the C7S. You're going to love it.

    As for the GT3 question, sorry Dave, I can't do that...

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    You could tell us everything...but you'd have to kill us all afterwards

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    Don't worry, my boss would kill me before it happened!

    hahaha

    the groom,

    haha I love kill bill, and i especially love porsche employees who are enthusiastic and share information,

    hope you stay around.

    anyways, thanks for the info guys.

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    Thanks for the welcome. I'll have to keep a low enough profile though, you don't want them to find out!


    (as for the Kill Bill story, it goes way back, even before the movie was made, but let's not digress... love that movie, though )

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    The Groom,
    Thanks for the info about the Boxster coupe, I thought C7(S) was just the internal designation. Hearing the rumours going around saying that this car is going to priced higher than the Boxster roadster, and that Porsche marketing are going to pitch it between the Boxster and 911, then it thought it may get a new 9XX number rather than 987.

    Are you able to say when the C7 is going to be first shown? Someone at Porsche Cars GB said there would be some news/announcement next week, but this seems unlikely to me.

    Curiosity killed the cat!

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    Why does that seem unlikely? If you are interested in the C7, keep your eyes and ears open next week.

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    Atlantis:
    I said exactly that: we call it C7 *internally*. Even if I knew the definitive commercial name, I wouldn't be allowed to tell you!

    As for the price, I prefer to consider it the opposite way: it's going to be an awesome deal, since the C7S is a much better sportscar than the Carrera at a significantly lower price! ;p


    Edit: sorry for the misunderstanding, Altlantis.

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    The only reason I think it is unlikely is that I would expect some of the weekly car magazines here in the UK to have a teaser about it in their "Next Week" sections. That's what happened with the 987 launch. Unfortunately, there are no teasers in this weeks magazines, but maybe this is because Porsche have them under a strict embargo?

    I really hope there's an announcement soon. I've had my name down at my local dealers to buy one for over a year and I can't wait to see what it'll be like.

    Sorry, I just meant that you were confirming what I thought. I wasn't questioning what you said. Having read what I wrote again, I can see that it was a bit ambiguous.

    Re: CGT Model Designation

    I do believe its 980
