    997TT rumor staight from PAG

    Spoke today with a Porsche employee who didn't comment on HP or torque but he did say that there will be more distance in performance between (base) 911 and TT then ever before. He also said that if the TT is the only reason to go to Geneva he wouldn't reserve tickets yet. However the car will definitely be available (in continental Europe) in the summer.

    Re: 997TT rumor staight from PAG

    more distance? jeez, the carrera S is a HEALTHY jump from the last 3.6 carrera...so this should be good;) Furthermore, as far as Im concerned, the more time taken by porsche the better, bc the testing irons out more bugs, and also more chance to evaluate and destroy competition!

    Re: 997TT rumor staight from PAG

    I bet you the timing issue is all Marketing decisions and has nothing to do with debugging the car IMO.

    At this time I can gurantee you that they even have the 997TT brouchures and the specs all printed out and ready to go.

    Agreed. Although it would be cool if Dr. Wiedeking and the Vice President of marketing would keep reading the rennteam forum and say to themselves: "Well, OK, they have convinced us, let's tell the boys up in Weissach to program the 997TT ECU to give them an extra 20HP."

    Keep in mind the S is not the base 997.
    The base 997 performance is virtually identical to the old 996 so that statement doesn't really seem profound. In other words I'd be very puzzled if the performance of the new turbo wasn't better than the last rendition.

    Re: 997TT rumor staight from PAG

    so will DSG be introduced in the 997TT?

    I don't unveil any secret if I say the following: we have 16 registered members from Porsche (they used a porsche.de EMail for registration, including verification) and over 27 registered members who registered with a Porsche IP.
    99% of these registered Porsche employees do not post anything, they just seem to read. But they're pretty often logged in (we can verify this).

    So don't worry: Porsche IS indeed reading and maybe even listening. But I doubt that our opinions have an impact on their views and decisions on a short term run.

    Ron is right, the 997 Turbo specs seem to be fixed, technical approval for certain markets is already on it's way, first data may be available through 3rd party sources sooner or later if Porsche doesn't come earlier with the press release. It is only a matter of time, sooner or later we'll have the final power figure and believe me if I say: It is going to happen THIS year.

    As far as rumours go: NO. But apparently Porsche planned another surprise for the 997 TT introduction, so maybe it will be DSG. I still hope for more power.

    Well, unfortunately 480 HP is a huge jump from 420 HP and compared to the 355 HP and 381 HP of the 997 Carrera models. We still hope for more.
    At a time, there were rumors about Detroit or Geneva. The latest rumors said Geneva, so let's just wait and see. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Re: 997TT rumor staight from PAG

    I think its the coolest thing that the boys @ porsche read this!!! (If u are reading this particular post, fix the RMS issue!!!!)

    Re: 997TT rumor staight from PAG

    maybe they'll introduce @ detroit since its the "heart" of the Z06??

    Then that leaves at most 36 days left. Hopefully that will make a rather nice Christmas present.
