Research on Porsche 997

I know very little about these car, but I quite like the Porsche 997, and would love to find out more, yet I don't seem to be able to find any good forum out there, maybe LYKs here can share you opinions here.

I'm sure there is a Porsche Club down where you are, no?

In any case, this is the one from around Vancouver:

u may think this is not related
but VCMC do have a lot of 911 owners (or used to be)

They are CHEAP in USA ...  (what else is not cheap in US?) lol

Since ~ 02 till now, 911 has been the lowest problem car u can buy ..

Try to stay away with the early 2005 launch edition C2S .. (usually Black + yellow ceremic brake)  

Any 997 after 01/05 built are good.

Upgrade parts are cheap from US too, you can get EVO intake for just $700 US, TWE/EVO/Cargraphic  Cat Converter/muffler for just $3K US, header for another $2K, GIAC program for $1200 .. labour cost is also cheap from US ..     

Basically, everything is 40% off compare to Can here ..

There are two very popular Porsche forums.

www.6speedonline.com   or    http://forums.rennlist.com

Personally, I like the crowd from 6speed much better. There are quite a few local 997 owners on that forum as well.

What types of information are you looking for in particular? Hope I can help.

It really is a fun car though!

Check with Barrier la..  they are pretty good ga .. nice new and used inventory too.

Thanks everyone for the info.
At this time I am doing research on the (2006+) 997 Carrera 4S Cabriolet - 6MT.  Beside the fact that I want PASM which comes standard on the S model, I really don't know what else to look for...!

Well ... dont need AWD la..  esp in Seattle, much more fun on 2S then 4S. (unless u go 2009 and up)

However, if u like the wide body look, 4S is the way to go ..  but on Cab, it looks wider then coupe anyway ..  I will suggest to stay with 2S.

Many thing u can look for, sport chrono, adaptive seat, full leather, Bose sound, short shifter, Bi Xenon.. etc etc, of course. service record is very important, CPO is the way to go.

a used cab sounds risky. Any cab top w/ no warranty/short warranty just sounds risky to me. Besides, I think 911 deserves a hard top. Looks better too. But that's just me...

    911 cab is alright .. been out for ~ 30 yr, 04 and up are bullet proof, it is not a Benz hard top.

Anyway, I suggest CPO, as u said, if the top goes wrong, easy $3K plus to fix.
