Default Another New 997.1TT Owner!!







I just picked up this 2007 997.1TT with a 6 speed manual, Slate Grey Metallic, Sand Beige full leather interior, Sport Adaptive Seats with 39,800 miles on 2/17/17. This is not my first P car, but is a real step up for me. I still own a 2001 C2 Cab. I really like the larger interior space in the 997 and the awd is night and day difference in the two cars.

Love it, I have a slate grey manual TT as well. It is a thing of beauty.

beautiful! - I picked up a very very similar build recently. How much did you pay? (if you don't mind me asking)

Low $70's, this is a CP car. Always serviced at two Porsche dealers in CA. Also has a 2 year power train warranty through the Porsche dealer I bought it from. It is one year to old to be a CPO car.

Are there any bad Turbos being purchased by Rennlisters? They all seem to be perfect! Nice going... stunning car.

Power is too much for that bad boy.
Power is instantaneous even at 6th gear.
You will get to know how to use the BOOST compared to a NA engine. You dont need to shift down. Just press the gas on any gear. You will love it especially on the HWY.

Congrats

Thanks, picked it up for road trips with the wife. So the power is really nice on the HWY!! Driving back from SOCAL, just put it in 6th and set the cruise.

Yes, it is a interesting color combo and it even has Sand Beige gauge faces. I printed out the build sheet and that is how it was spec'ed from the factory.
