    A Sept06 launch of PK makes no sense from a marketing standpoint....would not be surprised by PK and PSE (and maybe even PDK) as options avail for Jul07 build 997TT....gotta keep periodically releasing fresh reasons for guys to get a new 997TT every yr....

    I am still undecided, but a 530 HP Turbo with PSE, a lower suspension and CGT seats would be very appealing

    The GT2 is perfect for Greece, but up north we have snow...

    so is that your Rolls Kreso ? Where did you get that picture of my girl:D

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    I did order a GT3 but the dealer could not give me a delivery date before winter. I did not confirm the order because of winter snow and doubts about the power deficit.

    I am still undecided because my ideal car is not available from Porsche. Even a Turbo S would suffer from weight problems. A GT2 would be perfect except for winter traction in the ice and snow.

    My perfect dual-purpose car for all-weather autobahn and NBR use would be a 600 bhp Turbo weighing less than 1400 kg with CGT seats. I saw such a 996TT recently at Porsche racing workshop near the Ring. The interior was classic all black (like mine) and the CGT seats are amazing. The downside is that the CF doors etc may reduce safety and would certainly increase noise (which needs to be limited for long distance travel).

    So I am waiting to see the specs of the Turbo S and check all other options before deciding. In the meantime, the car I drive is excellent, and with a little weight loss, HP gain and racing brakes, this car would be close to perfect for me.

    To quote Gladiator: I did not know men could build such things.

    AUM, I share the same feeling towards girls as you do towards cars: at least we're picky
