    Very new 997 Turbo pictures!!!

    Just a few hundred meters from my house. I was driving my son to ice skating when I saw this new 997 tt.

    First of all, when you stand just new the car. It isn't special as I thought before. The difference between the old 996 tt and 996 was in my opinion larger.

    Just after shooting a few pictures my battery was empty. Yes I have shot some interior pictures. The car had tiptronic and not PDK. Inside nothing special. Here are the high resolution photos. The other (take by mobile phone) I will send you later.

    Pics please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    2.

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    ther car had PASM and Sport Chrono

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    you did it!
    an interior picture! tiptronic!

    my guess:
    tiptronic = no PDK available at launch

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    more pics from rear and around please!!!!Thats my color!!!

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    Surely Porsche would road test Manual + Tip + PDK Turbos prior to release?! Just to make sure the transmission can handle the new power...

    So *maybe* this was just one of the Tiptronic test cars?

    If so that doesn't rule out PDK at launch...

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    Im surprised!! Very similar to the regular 997! I was thinking of buying the turbo but I doubt many people will even tell the difference...just buying it for the performance just does not cut it!! Going to start saving for the 2006 Gallardo.

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    The front brakes look like 6 pot calipers with larger rotors!!

    yes -- quite possible. but IMO not at this stage, not with a turbo body. to me this car looks like it's coming straight from the assembly line.

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    Hey RC is it true that the new Tip is faster than 6speed???

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    mumbasic you are the man ! the shot of the front is the best so far , and the new front end is absolutely modern looking and beautiful when you see it in this shot . I can only hope that the 997 will get some of this in the upcoming facelift .

    Of course they have been TESTING PDK-tranny cars, the BIG question is when they will MARKET them.

    sure. no doubt. but i was referring to tiptronic only in my posting.

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    I have more photos, but my mobile phone usb cable is in my office. I will go tomorrow and put the other 10-15 pictures here. I have put my car beside the new turbo for comparison.

    Yes, indeed it is not so far from a standard 997 4S.

    AM

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    like RC said 225MPH speedo..

    UAUUU!!

    mumbasic now you must make other pics!you are our 007!!

    go and make tons of pics!


    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    You da man mumbasic .

    Finally a shot of interior but Tips still nice thanks much

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    Zzboba,

    From a marketing standpoint alone, it seems illogical to me for P to not have PDK available at launch-since this is when all eyes will be on the car-so one still wonders if all 3 trannies (6SP, Tip, PDK) could be available this year. And P would perhaps keep the PDK cars hidden from view so sharpshooters like mumbasic can't catch pics of it until official release? Any thoughts?

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    here are two other

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    and the other one

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    great pics! but maybe i can't find it, but were's the boost guage in the instrument cluster?

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    New turbo brakes! Those are 6 pistons, 996TT had 4 pistons.

    Tomorrow? We want them now!

    Can't you just buy more batteries and take more hi-res pictures?

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    how much bigger is that from 997S/996TT? Those look like the same size as the 2nd generation PCCB (997) brake calipers but in red....

    maybe. but IMO tiptronic makes no sense at all when PDK is available.

    I think its on the oposite side of the fuel guageno almost hidden from view.... the fuel is at 3 the boost is at 9... maybe im wrong...

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    That's 235/35-19" in the front. Massive.

    The Carrera S front tires are already 235/35-19, Rossi.

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    Congrats AM! You did what all car spies didn't-you took interior pics!
    Front and rear discs are 350mm(front 6caliper + rear 4caliper)-same size as PCCB option for 997/997S. PCCB option for 997tt will have 380mm discs on front...
    Front tyres are 235/35-19, again same size as 997S fronts. Rears 305/30 or 315??
    225mph speedo-European version will have 360km/h speedo!

    Re: very new 997 tt pictures

    Branimir,

    rear tires are 295! Conti winter tires.
