In the UK we get charged $150K for a 997 for the pleasure of donating to Porsche's profit coffers whilst the 997 costs buttons to make, even the crate engine costs only ~$12K which would just about buy a set of my turbochargers... Those Ruf wheels are the most substantial component that car will ever enjoy.....

Well you did ask for some stick

I was implying you posted in the wrong forum. Perhaps you meant to post this in the 993 forum?

Default TT

This is a 993 forum, just TT? Also I maybe incorrect but thought the 993 GT2 was a turbo and thats is the car with the similar design as the front chin spoiler I added to my 997.

My car is not a 993 nor 993TT I agree but not sure i agree it is "off topic" as the topic was started speaking to the subtle design q's of the 997 going back to the 993 and my goal to take it a bit further. but can also see your point a bit as well.

993TT subforum can get pretty rough. I would say this is a glowing reception for your 997. Just don't tell Tobey you pulled 600ftlbs on a Dynojet....

Hey, I'm only kidding. You did seem to sort of "ask" for some abuse

The 997 at US rates is a great car for a daily driver. Did it really run 600lb/ft on a dynojet

These wheels look awesome on just about any P-car. Great choice but time to start thinking about a 993TT.
