    997 TT snow pictures

    got a new camera and played with it, so i thought i could share some pictures with you The traction of the 997TT in the snow is unbelievable for a supersportscar






    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Gorgeous, car and pic. Even the wheels look good

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Really beautiful car and pictures. thanks for sharing.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Loooove it! You made snow look good enough to drive in. !

    Nice camera to render shadow and highlight detail in that extremely contrasty situation.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    That's beautiful. Thanks for giving me a reason to like snow again. I live in the city, and see mostly brown slush.

    It warms my heart to see a 997TT with snow tires.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    The first picture is high end magazine material. Beautiful Job. Mind sharing your camera, lens and settings?

    Absolutely love the first one....reminds me to Switzerland and is now the new Wallpaper on the Blackberry....THANKS !!!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    WOW.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    That first shot is beautiful. I don't know if you planned it but the back light being on is clever and adds much to the picture. Thanks for sharing.

    And I agree, we are lucky to own this pretty supercar.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    WOW, I should've got black!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    wow thats some deep snow too!! holy thanks for the pics!

    absolutely love the first shot! enjoy your camera, and share the exciting shots to come with us on a regular basis!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Thank you guys. I think the first one was a lucky shot. I just parked the car and made that picture, needed one minute, it was freeking cold Made with a Nikon SLR D???, don't even know the lens or adjustments.

    As you can see i use it as an daily driver and did everything with that car you can do: shopping, racetrack, high speed Autobahn, drifting in the snow,... and have 18.000 km in half a year on it -> problems? NONE!!

    I had several cars in the past (Ferraris, RS6, S8, ..) and as i need an AWD but not a large car (anymore;-)) I really have to say:

    For my requirements it is THE BEST CAR IN THE WORLD!

    The overall package is unbeatable

    Sure, advanced racetrack sessions are not what it made for (but you can always do some hot laps and drive home with the cruise control afterward) so i got a new toy and will do the Ferrari 430 Challenge this season, but coming to the racetrack i would always select the 997TT over any F-car

    Nevertheless i'm soooo happy with that too:

    Wow! You mean the camera just did all of that automatically? I guess my next camera will be the Nikon SLR D???

    Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    stunning pics and cograts for F430 challenge!
    is better better 997 turbo on the snow or rs6-s8 that you had?

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Love these pictures. Black is definitely the best color.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    wow, I really need that first shot in high resolution!
    very nice pics!!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    very very nice photos!!!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Awesome pictures! What type of Nikon is it? I'm a huge fan of their digital SLRs, I've got a D50 myself, and convinced my dad to get the D80.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    I believe he used a Nikon D40x based on the information I got from the image itself.

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Gorgeous pics, congrats!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    This is what putting the engine weight over the rear end does for you!

    Re: 997 TT snow pictures

    Great shots.

    I've always put snows on my 911's but have skipped it on the TT bc I didn't want to give up the day to day handling sharpness. I also drive my car everyday (20k mi/year). I just drove through some snow on the summer tires, and it was barely OK...but not a great idea overall.

    Which snows are you running? And how do you like them? Thanks.

    I have the Pirelli sottozero and i like them. Pretty good traction on snow and the handling on dry roads is almost the same compared to summer tires.
