    Sport Exhaust is now available

    Spoke with the dealer and the Sport Exhaust option (XLF) for the 997S is now finnaly available for April build cars

    My 997S is an April build so will come with the Sport Exhaust from factory

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Great News, so can we order the part now??

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    That means that i can still order to come with my car since its april production right???

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Muhri, its available for factory cars but it may take a bit longer to be available through parts department for retrofits so you will have to check on that with your dealer.

    TC M3, if you had Sport Exhaust in your order its should already be included by Porsche AG automatically and built/delivered with it. If you ordered it without the exhaust then call your dealer inmediately and see if he can get that option in there but should not be a problem is its an April build.

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Is there any chance to fit a base 997 with the Porsche sport exhaust or is it exclusivve to the Super 997 ?

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Carlos, Thanks I'll check tomorrow.
    Zacharie, As I know its only for the 997S

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Great news Carlos!!! ....Can't wait to see your 997S+your respective videos..."carlos type".. ..
    I want to know how the 997S sounds with the PSE, may be similar to fabspeed??? (if its like that, it should be amazing though I think it will have better sound and better quality...much more!!)

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    I will post a video with the sound launching, upshifting and such for all to judge, unfortunately I can't do a "before & after" job now since it will come with it from factory but you will get an idea

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Excellent news!!!!!!

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Carlos, I am so happy for you! Very considderate of your dealer too, to call you about it. And your car is quite similar to RC's, isn't it? Maybe RC can do the "before PSE" vid, and you the "with PSE"

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    TC M3, did you check with your dealer? if so let us know just to make sure its available for US as well cause US may be different than RoW.

    Joost thanks! I had to speak with him to see if he had a delivery date for me, no exact delivery date yet (just that its April build) but at least the exhaust is in

    Are you 100% sure?

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Thats what the dealer told me, he went ahead and ordered the car on Friday since we did not want to wait for the exhaust, and yesterday he told me that turns out the exhaust was accepted and Porsche had already included it automatically.

    Carlos, I just had my dealer try to add the Sports Exhaust to my 997s Cab, April build May delivery. He said Porsche would not accept the option. He will try to contact the rep to see if there is any explanation. Maybe its not available for U.S. builds but that dosen't make sense

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Tried to add it to my C2S cab March build order but out of luck as no more changes is being accepted on my car (too close to build date) The dealer then tried to add it to a April build order for another customer that has been waiting and it woudl not go through. As of yesterday U.S. orders were not being accepted.

    Its Re-Confirmed! Its available.

    Just spoke with my dealer to re-confirm that the sport exhaust is available, and it is. Porsche admitted my 997S order with SPort Exhasut and its available, at least for Europe. Guess I'll be one of the first to have it but that also means that here in rennteam will be one of the first places to hear it since I will post sound files of the sport exhaust for all those that want to hear it

    The problem may seem that there is too much demand so not all orders are accepted yet, but they will sooner or later, at least in Europe. For all we know in US it maybe be even later with the different polution and noise laws, but keep checking back with the dealer, its available here for some April builds already.

    Those wanting the sport exhaust through the parts department for retrofit may be delayed a bit since they will firts supply the factory build cars with it.

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Wonderful news - thanks!

    Will it have a switch to turn it on/off?

    Also, is it just for the 997S or can the 997 also be fitted with it too?

    Yes, according to the order guide, it specifically says it has the switch like in the 996.

    Unfortunately its only for the 997S, though there are rumors Porsche may eventually develop one for the base 997, there is nothing confirmed or substatial.

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    I posted a while ago that the sport exhaust will be available for the Carrera too, not only for the Carrera S. It came like a surprise for me and I just checked the german car configurator and it seems to be true. I just hope this isn't a configurator error.

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    RC - Let us know when its available for retrofit through the parts dept. Does retrofitting include the switch as well?

    I get one of the first exhausts for retrofit, I ordered mine back in July 2004. I'm not sure about the switch, I heard that chrono sport equipped cars don't need the switch and that the exhaust is gonna be operated by the "sport" switch of chrono sport. But is sounds a little bit strange to me, maybe I want the exhaust to sound LOUD without having chrono sport activated? Time will tell, right now there is some sort of information GAP, probably due to the new products expected for summer 2005.

    Re: Sport Exhaust is now available

    Muhri,
    I had the 996 sport exhaust retrofitted on my car and it came with switch buit on the dashboard.
    Hopefully, it'll be the same for the 997.
    RC,
    That would be a smart and chicky marketing move from Porsche,
    You can have the PSE switch only with the sport chrono!
