    Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    A delayed flight back from Paris gave me a chance to drool some more over the 997TT piccies in this months Christophorus (sp?). Has anyone else noticed the crests on the wheels don't point at the valve stems in teh official pics? Dealers in the UK get struck off for releasing cars to customers in this shoddy state!!

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    can you post a pic and point it out so we can understand better?

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    LOL,
    I think this is what he means (see pic)
    Probably the point of the porsche crest is to point at the valve stam, which is not the case in these pics.

    I hope this was a joke.

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    Don't think you guys understood his joke!
    He was saying that Porsche were a bit 'lazy' with the photos as all official photos usually have the point of the crest pointing to the tyre valve!

    Well spotted!

    Not a mistake...an art director decision.

    It was the orientation of the wheel spokes to allow maximum visability of the brake calipers, in this particular photo...

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    Yep,it was a post in jest. But my dealer does makesure the point of the crest does point to the valve - and I think other UK dealers do too.

    porschemania anyone ?

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    that cap comes out... I hope he was kidding right? You can adjust it....

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    Good spotted... I happen to notice that the wheel bolts are not aligned either... sloppy

    Well observed, Rich C, but wrong conclusion.
    This "flaw" should not be blamed on sloppiness on the part of the people who prepared the car.
    The car shown must have been the Tiptronic version. We've heard all about its phenomenal acceleration. When the wheels started spinning the hub caps just couldn't keep up and got out of synch.

    Not everyone gets the subtlety of English humor, I think.

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    The tires are dusty aswell. So imperfect. Disgusting!

    Re: Major design flaw on the 997 TT?

    Plus, on this side of the Atlantic, the tires need about a quarter bottle of tire dressing each to be presentable on the street .

    Umm would someone please explain these wheels to me

    what the heck is with these five asymmetric triple bars on each wheel.
