    997S or 997 Turbo?

    I have heard that the 997 Turbo is just a retuned 996 Turbo, that means its the same 3.6 litre engine. Now I am wondering, what if the guys at RUF come up with a kit for 997S, and since the engine has higher displacement, wouldn't it produce more power than the 997 Turbo?

    RUF never was too good with normally aspirated cars.
    Adding a turbo charger or supercharger to the 997 S wouldn't be really recommendable either.
    As far as I know, the Carrera S engine is good up to around 400 HP. So I'm not sure it would really be a 997 Turbo competitor.

    The latest rumor I have indicates a 3.8 l engine for the 997 Turbo based on the "old" 3.6 l Turbo engine. This is actually good news if true because very early rumors indicated that Porsche wants to save cost and plans to install a modified version of the current Carrera S 3.8 l.

    So my answer would be: definetely wait for the 997 Turbo or get a 997 Carrera S now and get a 997 Turbo after three years (which is actually my plan... ).
    I don't think we'll see a 997 Turbo until spring/summer 2006, so it would be a pitty to loose all that fun in the 997 Carrera S. This "excuse" worked well for me...

    Re: 997S or 997 Turbo?

    I simply love the 997, mainly because of its similarity to the 993, and it would be great if they decide to go with a 3.8L engine for the Turbo. I am targetting to get one right after my 997S runs out its warranty. Thanx for the info.

    Re: 997S or 997 Turbo?

    rc , i also got an inside information that 997turbo first production will be june 2006 .the excuse worked for me also rc... what do you think about autocar article planning the 997gt3 for summer 2005?is it possible?

    Re: 997S or 997 Turbo?

    I agree with most of you the 997 Turbo will be terrific. I would say this Autocar is usually correct in it's projections of when cars will be released to the public. I am not so sure about the Ruf mod. I have seen with the 993 that Ruf liked to modify the 993 C4S to twin turbo than it did with the 993 Turbo. But either way I would buy the 997S enjoy it and decide what to do when the turbo is about to be released and you know what Porsche Development has decided to come out with. Enjoy life drive the 997S.
