    Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    Hey guys, need some help from the experts. I figure that you guys know all the problems associated with all the different models, the advantages and drawbacks to the new technology, turbo vs non-turbo, and depreciation rates. Here are the current options: 2004 coupe aero package new, 2002 turbo used 24k miles certified, 2006 coupe used 3k mi. They're all priced about the same; 68-70k.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks!

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    Dave, I had the same issue last year. I had the choice between a 2002 996 turbo and a 2005 997. Due to the fact that I drove a 996 from 2002 till mid 2005, getting a 996 turbo would be great but I wouldn't have change "a lot" form what I had. The 997 is a completely "new" car compared to 996. I'm pretty sure I've done the right choice. Best of luck!

    Thanks georges. Anyone else care to weigh in?

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    The 996 tt is a fabulous performer, but considering the arrival of the 997tt i thinck you will find you with a rather 'old" car. You can't compare the bulletstart of a 996tt to that of a 997, but with the 997 you buy the newest thing on the market.And performancewise makes the chassis of the 997 also a better figure.... so, for me it's clear 997 on top.

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    I would go 997.

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    997! TT close second!

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    How much do you care about warranties and how long do you plan on keeping this next car?

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    For me:a 997!!!!

    Re: Trading the CayenneS for a ????

    2006 997 for sure!
