I will hold on to my 997s for a few more years, maybe get the 991 when it gets a midlife power bump.
I can't really disagree with you there, which is part of the reason I sold the turbo and got the .2 GT3; which is the best car I have ever owned. I do think that the 991 will be a great car and the mid-life power bump ~as you say~ should be very nice! I am also hoping the next GT3/RS is as good as I am hearing. But, yeah high revving NA for me too.

I will say that my .1 turbo without PDK was stupid fast. Kind of like Kirk asking Scottie for warp 8 and Scottie delivering. I can only imagine what another 50 hp, PDK and a few less lbs does.

BTW, I never noticed the minor occasional lag in my 335 until I got my GT3.
