    Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Dealer just called and said sport exhaust has been delayed including orders that had previously been confirmed. Does not know when it will be available. At this point I am ready to give up on sport exhaust.

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Hmmmm, I will talk to my dealer tomorrow just in case.
    When had you placed your order?

    This is really annoying, why would they advertise it if it's not available.
    It seems a very few have actually received it though.
    So weird!
    I hope the situation straightens out very soon.
    Carlos, let me know what your dealer says tomorrow, thanks.

    When I placed my order for a 997 S cab in January the dealer called me back a few weeks later to say it wasn't available. I've got horrible patience when it comes to waiting for cars so told him to build it without it. If I didn't have plans to go into a 997 Turbo/Turbo Cab. (if they make it) then I would have waited for the exhaust. I like the Chrome tips that it comes with and would probably love the sound.

    If it helps at all next time I speak with him I'll ask about it.

    Guys, the sport exhaust is coming. But it may take some more time. The latest info I got is that new car orders will be fullfilled starting with MY 2006 (with a few exceptions in MY 2005 based on...hell knows ).
    Tequipment should have the exhaust ready by july, I get one of the first units available worldwide.
    Or to make it short: if I don't have it yet, it is very unlikely that somebody gets it much earlier. At least as a Tequipment part (retrofit).

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Car was ordered in early March with a May build date. Sport exhaust was accepted and confirmed on order. Dealer received a call from Porsche yesterday stating that all sport exhaust was delayed due to a problem with the system. Said it was not available even with Europian delivery. Don't know if this applies only to US vechiles or all orders.

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    I found out yesterday that my S cab. has an estimated completion date of 4-25. (PRDEST) Pretty psyched.

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    I see, thaks RD. My dealer is contacting Porsche Iberica who is contacting the factory about my order, will know something late afternoon I hope. If its delayed I will be VERY pissed cause I had already arranged to order it without it and get a free retrofit for when it was available, but in the last minute they accepted the exhaust so if they delayed my car due to the exhaust again (I have been waiting since Dec'04 for the exhaust to be available) I will not be a happy camper.


    Congrats Stradale

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Ive seen the exhaust a as retrofit here.
    I said this last week,2 have arrived one for S one for standard, waiting for mine approx. at the end of April
    I just hope verything turns out ok withthe system as i suspect that the delayed issues have arised due to some design problems. i hope they have eliminate them

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Is anybody who wants the sport exhaust aware...

    ...that he or she will get tailpipes with different diameter?

    Doesn't look right IMHO.

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    yes Rossi that was the case also in 996

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Standard exhaust...

    ...with stainless steel tips...

    ...looks far better to me!

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    they should at least move the little pipe to the outside

    (like the X54 tips)

    A little comparo, old...

    ...versus new.

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    nice job

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    That C4S looks damn good

    Re: Sport Exhaust Delayed

    Maybe in person it will look different, but ever since I saw the PSE of the 997S in pics I said what Rossi said, it doesn't look quite right IMO. I'm not sure what to make of it, don't know if I like it or hate it
    I will wait to see it in person to decide... but as long as it sounds a good as its rummored I don't care, the exhaust tips is what the other cars are going to get to see, not me
