    Nice Keyring!...very clean car, must admit I like the silver a lot, is that artic silver or GT silver?

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Thanks Chris! Well spotted re the keyring, it's a miniature Falcon cap. The colour of the car is Arctic Silver.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    What type of child seats are you using. I have a new 997tt on order and have 2 boys. Could you give me the part number as well.
    Thanks,
    Ray

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Hi Ray, we have the Porsche Kid Plus seats G2+G3,
    Part no. 955 044 801 02

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    How would you say the room is in the back for the kids? I also have two kids and am about to order a 997tt. BTW beautiful car!!! I'm having trouble deciding on a color and you may have just swayed me to GT silver.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    It's a gorgeous car, but I cannoit get used to the 997 steering wheel, it looks so cheap with the plastic. Porsche should have sticked to the 996 full leather design.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Plastic???????? It is leather, what makes you think its plastic?

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Very clean and well-kept car, I like that Drive safely.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Nice arctic silver!

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Very nice looking Turbo.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Beautiful car! Quick question, did you get the thicker steering wheel option? It looks like it might be (for the sport wheel). You have good taste.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Hi Gradyex, indeed, I opted for the thicker steering wheel, am happy with the choice, very nice grip.

    The full specs are:
    249 Tiptronic S
    635 Park Assist (Parking Aid Rear)
    640 Sports Chrono Package Turbo
    509 Fire Extinguisher
    CFX Floor mats with coloured logo (silver) and leather surround (red)
    XPA Thicker 3-spoke sports steering wheel in smooth leather
    XSC Porsche crest embossed on the head rest
    692 CDC-4 Six disc CD autochanger
    447 Inflatable spare tire
    P77 Sports seats
    XSX Seat belts in guards red
    X70 Door entry guards in stainless steel
    672 Extended navigation system
    666 Telephone module for PCM
    XXZ Sports-style footrest

    CR911, there's enough leg space in the back without moving the seats forward (I'm 1.77 m). The kids ( 3 and 5 years old) love it, "Dad, can we go in the race car again?"

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    mprins, thanks for info. my kids are 3(girl) and 5(boy) as well and are looking forward to the new turbo. my wife is not so sure there will be room for them, but i'll show her your photo and there will be no doubt. it seems we are about the same height. the girls are beautiful! thanks again.

    Porsche is best in silver..silver is traditional...best color for resale. Colors like cobalt are novel but get dated quickly and won't last year to year.

    I resent that remark. I think Cobalt Blue is a timeless color that will continue to impress in the years to come. My classic M5 was a beautiful shade of blue and to this day, it still remains stunning. Don't get me wrong, I still like silver but to me, Cobalt blue will stand out in the years yet to come moreso.

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Hm, I think silver is a safe choice, it emphasizes the body lines and acts as a contrast for air vents, etc. The opposite applies for black, it flattes the body lines and hides the air vents, etc.

    Cobalt Blue is definitely a timeless color. Another favourite of mine is Iris Blue, just stunning:

    Re: Some more pictures of our Silver 997TT

    Dude don't post pics like that you will make me change my color choice back to Silver:)
    Beautiful car!
    As an aside, I don't recommend posting pictures of your kids online, there are just too many weird people out there in cyberspace. I did it once and received some strange emails, I took the pics down immediately. Very sad but a reality in todays world.
