    "Excellence" article on 997

    October issue of "Excellence" magazine has a nine page driving report of the 997. I do not have pdf file production capabilities and 200k image file size makes it unreadable. Any suggestions?

    Seattle USA, you are welcome. Unfortunately, the scans don't quite do justice to the photos. The Sand Beige interior is really looking good. I am trying to change my 977S order from Arctic Silver/Black to Seal Grey/Sand Beige.

    Re: "Excellence" article on 997

    Good change DD694,seal/sand much nicer combo and unusual too

    RC: can you comment on the article's issue (pg.9) w/ the rear suspension bushings causing a "lateral heave." Have you seen this, and if yes, what is it, what do you feel? Thanks.

    I'm afraid I can't say much about this because I had only around one hour in a PASM equipped car. For the sake of being able to tell something about PASM performance, I concentrated on sportiness and especially on the differences between comfort and sport setting of PASM.
    I don't fully agree that PASM sport setting is too stiff, it is just right. There is still the comfort button and this is actually something I don't agree with either: the comfort setting feels definetely a bit too soft but this can be just right for a daily driver on bumpy roads.

    One thing I know for sure after driving now more than 800 km with the 20 mm chassis/LSD. This is definetely not something most people want to have on their 997, especially not on a daily driver. Yesterday I drove more than 200 km country roads, some of them pretty bumpy and I have to confess that maybe I'm getting old. It was a bit too much, my back was happy to escape the seat after that drive.

    Gee, you are quick in replying. Thanks. If you have a chance to pass on to your good contacts at PAG this Excellence comment, I would appreciate it - to sort it out.
