In the US the difference between an TT with all the performance stuff, which I got, less the ceramic brakes which I didn't want is 25K. Cermamic brakes are about 10K. I can afford an S i just didn't see the point. At this level 25K is not that big a deal but why waste the money? If you want an S get one.

Rennteam,

How would you compare the acceleration performance of a 991 TTS to a tuned 600HP 997 TTS?
Overall performance comparison? (991TTS has rear wheel steering but I have Damptronics so that should help mine a little bit)

I'm having a hard time seeing a benefit to selling my 997 TTS for $140K? and having to some up with another $60K for the 991TTS.

An indirect reply to WaltB's question:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the first, exclusive test I've seen of the 991 Turbo S, reporting a 0-100km time of 2.9 seconds, corresponding to about 2.8 seconds for 0-60mph. If the 0-60 times reported for the 997 TTS by C&D, Road and Track and Motor Trend are correct then, on average, they imply a 0-60 time of slightly less than 2.8 seconds. This suggests that acceleration of the two turbo S cars is about the same up to 60 mph.

IOW, WaltB's modded 997 TTS should see the 991TS in it's rear view, perhaps not by a big margin but discernible.

If I had a 2012 TTS I would drive it. I would wait for a 991.2 TTS.

I did the same thing for the same reason-no interest in ceramic brakes. I am a road driver and steel brakes suit that better. Plus, I don't care about PDCC and for the tiny bit of HP I don't care at the price difference. I can afford the S but I prefer the setup in the Turbo. Likely I will tune the car but we shall see. Fro $3K-$10K a LOT can be done IF you need the extra bit of speed. I already can beat almost everything on the street.

Well don't give me the thumbs up for too long...my dealer made me a very good offer to trade the newly purchased TT for an S scheduled for May delivery. Ugh..so silly but I figured at this price point already I may as well get it all. Two buddies of mine have the S with standard PDCC and love it. My TT didn't have it and I didn't want to be looking at the car all the time wishing it did. Still no use for the PCCB but I guess I'll enjoy no brake dust (looking for justification here).

Now I 've sampled pure car bliss and I have to wait three months to taste it again!

It will be a long wait but by that time we'll have some warm weather and I'll enjoy her even more. I keep telling myself this. lol!

Turbo or Turbo S, they both will kill 99.9% of the cars on the road today. I've ordered the S, but only because I wanted the brakes and CL's
