    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    which magazine?
    any scans available?
    more details?

    what's about the ipod integration?

    any torque figures?

    where is the redline or maximum rpm?

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    the new 997 tt will have an integrated ipod.
    The ipod can be plugged in a docking station in the trunk. With the PCM you can control the ipod. Even with the multi function steering wheel option you can control the ipod. This integration seems to be the best one on the market. If you have ipod photo or video, you can watch the photos and videos you have stored in your ipod.
    This option will be from start, about 600 Euro.

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    do you know if the ipod integration is retro fit to other older 997 models or only on new?

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    andwhich ipod will be integrated? the ipod video, nano?

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    As far as we heard, all current iPods are supported but not the first (and maybe second?) generation. Yes, even the video iPod is supported, you can watch videos on the PCM system (unfortunately I think the screen will black out when the car starts moving).

    We always said that we'd see 515-520 HP on the Turbo S. But I'm afraid there won't be a Turbo S from the start, sorry.

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    You guys are nuts! 520 hp is a handful. Even with 480 hp 99% will not get close to 75% of the car limits unless you have death wish.

    This is a really cool feature!
    Do you think it'll be retrofitable to previous 997 RC or is it part of the a whole new PCM3 system which won't be retrofittable?

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    he said "..will have an integrated ipod" and i would like to know, which ipod comes with the car? which ipod is already integrated?

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    please more infos about the Ipod integration .... !!!

    Will this also to get if i oder a new 997 ...???

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    Doesn't it seem dumb that you have to put the ipod in the trunk? So every time I go to my car, I have to open the trunk to put my ipod in or take out?

    I'd rather have it in the glove box, personally. Otherwise- cool feature!

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    I'd buy two ipods in this case. One for the car and one for walkabouts. Obviously the one in the car being the 60Gb...

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    I think that the 480 HP turbo has a lot more than 480 HP, just a guess, if they were only going to go that far, they wouldnt use new turbo technology; the ex GT2 engine would have been fine...cant wait to see the new cars dynod!!

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    love how this ENTIRE thread is more concerned with video iPod integration than 520hp~~!!!

    That's only because the rest of us (who hadn't responded yet) have been conflicted as to how to respond-knowing that the car mags. usually get their info. wrong, but we don't believe that mag. would have positive news before rennteam would get it. It makes no sense, and there has been no hint of the "S" coming out now, maybe the powerkit for 520-525HP, but the "S?" Nah. BTW, iPod? I wish they would ban that c--- from cars.

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    If a 997 TT is going to cost around 150K US, how much will the 997 TTS cost? I need to hit to lottery quick.

    Re: 911 & Porsche World says: Turbo S with 520hp available .

    Usually the iPod is stored in the glove box.

    not $150k... MSRP will probably be around $126k realistically... Lets say Porsche will charge us 6% above the previous 996TT model ($118k). But after we add a few goodies like PCCB,Sport Chrono 2 and Sports seats then we are looking at around $150K

    Francois, relax my friend. It was just a hoax, a joke. Some people, incl. me, seem to get fed up with all that bragging about power and options.
    There will be some sort of iPod integration but not for the video iPod and not in the trunk. And I'm sure Adnan knows that very well too, he just wanted to have a little bit of fun. Well done, Adnan.

    OK, this is REAAAALLY weird ... We agree Nick, yes I admit I agree with what you said on a post!

    I'm gonna fix me a drink now, the shock is to much..

    It's a shame, it could have been a nice option. Ok obviously, iPod in the front trunk is not practical but an iPod integration idea was pretty cool.
    Been enjoying my new iPod video on planes a lot lately and it's a fine toy!

    75%!!!!!!
    Dude,
    I'd make that 25% for most of us.
    The man is a vain animal by nature, and there's a huge amount of testoterone on the 997 Turbo board.
    People who talk about power power and more power and yet forget that the 997 Turbo is more about power to weight and torque.
    Having said that, I'm sure Porsche will make the new Turbo even more easy to drive than the previous one.

    Disagree....

    Give a 150hp car to a drunk guy/an inattentive driver tailgating on a slick road....and even at 65MPH, several people can be killed in moments....

    If 500-700hp/lb-ft cars aren't desired by US buyers for whatever reason, they won't sell and mfrs will need to modify their product plans....but let the mkt decide....

    Guys w/good judgement know where and when to reasonably exploit a larger fraction of the power of their cars....there are risks and limitations in every setting, whether a CA fwy/mtn twisty/track/German autobahn....let Darwinian selection prevail....the fear of death/injury/jailtime for vehicular manslaughter/lawsuits, etc keeps most balanced risk/reward guys in-line; pure risk-seekers often have very little to lose and will get themselves into trouble w/cars w/far less than 500hp....
