Me too. Have you seen the tails in traffic before? I almost rear-ended one just gawking at them. The LEDs are crazy

Yeah... that is one bad boy! I've heard of some low 7 to flat 7 second sprints to 100 too. Getting pricey though.

Dear Santa Claus,

I have been a very good boy this year, and feel that I am deserving of a 911 turbo.

Please leave it in my driveway next to my E92; I will be expecting this no later than 5 AM christmas morning.

In return, instead of milk and cookies, I will leave you a nice Peter Luger's filet mignon and a shot of Johnny Walker Blue Label for your enjoyment; in much gratitude for bestowing upon me, a 911 Turbo.

Respectfully Yours,
MJC

They are there.

997.2 TT starting at 138 I believe?

Just a few options and you have reached 150 w/o blinking. The turbo graphic is 1850 I think.


And that is about the third car I have seen in Mexico blue (?) and it is not offered on their site.

Paint to sample? Not that versed in PTS.

Dear MJC,

While I love a great steak and some Johnnie on a cold winter's night filled with hard work, I cannot in good conscience bring you this car for Christmas, due to the fact that I know you WILL be very, very bad all next year. Instead, I have decided to keep the car for myself for several reasons. I get my route done waaaay faster than I can with those reindeer, who have unionized this year (Try getting them work quickly now), I have decided I like the smell of burning rubber better than reindeer dung, and Mrs. Claus put on that skimpy outfit I gave her last year as soon as the car was delivered. Now there's more than one North Pole

Merry Christmas,

Santa

That is paint to sample; not even sure if it's available.

The must have options get the price to $153k, very quickly: PDK, Porsche Torque Vectoring, Sport Chrono w/DE Mounts, Adaptive SPORT seats and Center Lock Wheels. That's about $15k in options right there and I haven't even gotten to the fluff stuff. So, a nicely equipped turbo is right about $158K.

As hypocritical as this sounds from a die hard N/A guy after reading that (2.9s w/out passenger easily if not 2.8) I'm actually considering dumping the C63 and GT3 for a 2010 911 TT. ROFL. Just wow for factory performance. Now we just need a miracle to non piggyback tune it.
