Popped up on Facebook, thought I was dreaming (just woke up from a nap). I haven't followed Turbo's in awhile but I do find it interesting that they are offering 2 models right away, both a Turbo and Turbo S but I don't recall reading any power increase with the S model. Looks like a ton of tech jammed into this car, active aero, ton's of lights and even more dynamic lighting. Not sure whether that's a good or bad thing yet.

Looks nice!! Less aggressive compared to the regular 991 versus the previous model compared to the regular 997. Like the rear spoiler a lot!

Base prices of 160,500 and 181,100 for turbo and turbo s as compared to 997 based turbo models with base prices of 137,500 and 148,300...plus 950 delivery, taxes and the items that we love to add to personalize the cars...I think it would be somewhat easy to approach 200K and 225K respectively...serious coin

Very serious coin....and for me, this is not making me turn my head from the '09 I'm driving.

But we'll see in person how this thing looks, smells, feels, etc.

Pricing is nutty, but they've gone off the deep end on parts over the past year too - older 996 stuff jacked up 50-100% over years before. Go figure. Tough times I guess.

Wow I think its really good looking, the only problem I have with it is the front end is not agressive looking enough and that front movevable spoiler is going to be expensive to replace every time you hit a squirrel.

I pretty much don't care how they dress it up with power, fancy electronics and the like....start with a 991...you still have a 991.

I like a lot of stuff, not enough to jump.
Couple of pics, which do you like better?

funny but true... i had an 05 997.1 in 08... have a 997TT now... it's the same car, same pcm, same functions, same seats.. just a different engine and 2 extra wheels turn.

funny how you can add 100k to a platform.. and people still jump on board.
