    AutoZeitung: Launch Dates of new Porsche Models

    Based on AutoZeitung we should expect the following:

    - Feb 06: 997TT
    - Mar 06: 997 GT3
    - Okt 06: 997 Targa

    Re: AutoZeitung: Launch Dates of new Porsche Models

    If I am not mistaking these are european dates and the North America market will not see these cars until 6 months after??

    Correct, these are the dates for the German market.

    I would rather say:

    March 06: GT3
    June 06: TT
    Oct 06: Targa

    February for the TT would be great but unfortunately I'm not THAT lucky.

    And YES, launch dates discussed here are GERMAN launch dates. To my knowledge, first GT3 make it to the US around June/July EARLIEST in pretty little numbers, first TTs should make it to the US end of August.

    That would have to mean the 997TT goes to Detroit. If RC is correct, then Geneva would fit the schedule.

    They might inform the press in February and then show the first cars in Geneva. Same as with the Cayman, for example; First infos in August (?), first presentation on the IAA in September.

    Does anyone have an introduction date for the 997TT Convertable?

    Pretty early this time. Around 6-12 months after Coupe introduction. Latest. We even heard rumors that the Cab will be introduced at the same time with the Coupe but I have no confirmation for that.

    I spoke with my local Porsche dealer's sales manager yesterday, and his comments match RC's information: USA 997TTCoupe's available mid-summer 2006 (likely July/August) with 997TTCab's probably at least 6 months later, i.e., early 2007. He was more pessimistic re. 997TTS launch, going only by previous (996) timetable, something like 2009-2010 for 997TSCoupe's and 997TSCab's. When I asked if 997TTCab's might come out with 997TTCoupe's, he seemed to leave open that possibility. FWIW, I suspect from the TONE of his voice that he thinks the 997TT variants could come faster than he OFFICIALLY stated, especially the 997TTCab's and possibly even the 997TTS's. . . .

    I spoke to my dealer and was told 997TT launch vehicles in the US by July 2006.

    First customer cars won't be available til end of August. If somebody is lucky, he may get one after August the 20th or so. It depends on the official introduction date for the US which will be slightly later than the german/european introduction date. Like I said before, we're expecting the first cars to be delivered to customers around June. The first US cars should make it on the ships by mid/end June, meaning that I doubt they'll be at dealers before mid August. The press release will tell all the details.
