Just received a Fed Ex from Porsche Cars North America with 997TT specs. There was much discussion whether it would be quicker than Z06, 430, CGT and their was discussion about whether manual would be quicker or slower than tiptronic. The tiptronic will be quicker in the 997TT and it will apparently be quicker than the CGT in tiptronic form. 480 hp, 460 torque, 505 torque with overboost and 0 - 60 in 3.7 for manual and 3.4 for tiptronic. 1.4 mile is 11.8 in manual and 11.6 in tiptronic. Scarey part is you can generally bet these factory numbers are on the conservative side. I have rest of specs if anyelse interested. I agree that the 430 is the more desireable car. The bar keeps being resett and one could speculate that the 997TT will be quicker in TTS and GT2. It seems like Ferrari will eventually have to go forced induction if they want to keep pace in accelleration numbers. You think Ferrari will ever go forced induction on base model production cars or does Ferrari care if its V8 line is a little slower in accelleration as it can sell all the cars it produces anyway.
