I'm trading in my 997 S for a 2007 Turbo. I've only had my Carrera for less than a year. Here are a couple pics and the options list.. It's got 40k miles and in absolutely perfect condition. It's got a CPO warranty until 07/2012. It has every option.. Including the limited slip dif and PCCB's. I love my Carrera but I couldn't resist this car. I got a really good deal on it.... I'll post some nice high res pics when I pick it up next week.

Your old car looked so nice when I saw it, but this must completely blow it away! Congrats!

Thanks Geoff! My Carrera is awesome. It only has 23k miles. Someone will enjoy it.. I wish I could have kept it but I don't have space for 2 P cars.

This Turbo is pretty amazing. It's getting an ECU upgrade and some exhaust mods. She'll put out around 530 hp after the mods. The stock mufflers are way to quiet for me.. The Composite brakes are insane. I thought the stard Porsche brakes were good....

Thanks for the replies everyone. I figure I'm not getting any younger so I should have things that make me happy lol! I really am going to miss my Carrera. Ulitmately I'd like to add a GT3 to my quiver (and a Panamera for that matter.) That would mean a much bigger home with more garages :clapping: Oh yeah and I need to make a lot more money.....

I almost bought a Aston Martin Vantage. Awesome car but nowhere near the Porsche in performance. :drive: Actually would like one of those too..(I'm sick.) Porsches rock and I'm sticking with them...

It looks like I'll pick up the car on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll go down to the Rose Bowl and take some pictures. She is a beauty. I'm really excited..

:cheers:

I pick up my new (to me) Turbo today at 1 o'clock and say goodbye to my Carrera (tear..)

The tech at called me yesterday after he test drove the car after the mods to the chip and exhaust. He said and I quote "that thing is sick now.."

Yipee! Can't wait to drive it. :drive:

I'll post pictures asap......

Update.. Oh my God this car is fast. According to my tech with the mods it had around 560hp and approx 600lbs or torque. It's an amazing experience. I'll post some pics before the week is up. Now I know what the rest of the 997 Turbo owners are talking about.....:clapping:

What is it like as far as sound and power? I used to have 2004 Carrera convertible and now have 07 977 TT. I have my vehicle scheduled to to the Tubi Exhaust Regular, GFCI tuning, Champion intercooler. I am not sure if I am going to have stock tips reused or new tubi tips.
