    9977TT Chaos

    Has to be the worst, most confusing new model information from Porsche ever. It raises too many questions.

    ONE model car - 997TT, 5 versions, 5 possible variations in accelleration and lap times? WHY do that to customers???

    6spd manual - no sport chrono over boost
    6spd manual - with optional sport chrono over boost
    6spd manual - with optional sport chrono over boost and optional LSD
    6spd autobox - no sport chrono over boost
    6spd autobox - with optional sport chrono over boost

    Obviously, their marketing people take joy in chaos!
    I can understand the rational in 2, maybe 3 variants.
    But 5 ??? And those exclude PCCB wich is also optional.

    It seems a pretty mean thing to do to customers.

    Things are pretty simple:

    There is a 997 Turbo with manual.
    Optional: Tiptronic S.
    Optional: Chrono Sport Package (incl. Overboost)
    Optional: LSD (for manual only).

    Where's the problem???

    Re: 9977TT Chaos

    Agree with you, RC! Different options for different people..
    Actually, I like the fact that each of us can choose some of these options and order a car that would serve each of as the best!

    Re: 9977TT Chaos

    Wich is the quickest TT AND wich will turn in the quickest lap times?

    The manual with sport chrono and LSD?

    or

    The Tiptronic wth sport chrono and no LSD?

    ??

    Re: 9977TT Chaos



    and on that note...can all the Manual/Tip threads be combinded? Having 4 threads on the same topic is a bit much

    LSD? Lambo-Style-Doors?

    0-125 tip is FASTER
    around the track manual is FASTER

    right RC?

    I'm a late '60s type and I say you're likely to get HIGHEST with LSD

    Re: 9977TT Chaos

    Yeah, you'll absolutely fly on the track

    Well, i'm a mid 80's guy and I'd say that the car with LSD would produce the quickest lap times

    Re: 9977TT Chaos

    997TT question: seeing the clear interior photos, why is it that they eliminated the "humps" from the steering wheel? dont those help get a definitive grip on it...just wondering...
