2005 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

Well, the extra clock (lap timer) mounted on the top center of the dash (i.e. under the rear view mirror) is the give away clue!!!

You also see an extra button on the bottom of the centre console with "sport" on.

IMO, this is very much a "worth to have" extra for what did not cost much on spec'ing a new car...

Good luck!

There will be a stop watch stuck to the middle of the dash like the photo below Thumb

Sports chrono is a nice option to have as it was about £500 to spec on new cars.
But it doesn't do a lot; 2 main extra's Are:

A change in throttle response, when the sport button is on.
Enables you to record lap times, which to be honest, makes you look a bit of a tool, when explain what the extra clock does, to your new girl friend or mates Confused

If I found a good car that didn't have SC, if wouldn't put me off.

Is that what you really think? Or are you just quoting JC verbatim? Wink

I'll admit you don't use the timer much at all, but the throttle response increase when pressing the Sport button (my little boy calls it the "Trumpet Button") is a nice feature, it also opens the PSE if that is available also.

Some people hate it, personally I don't mind it. Prefer the dark face of the clock to the white like you get on the GT3 as opposed to the C2S.

Most passengers who ask what it is just accept what you tell them and express no opinions either way and have yet to take a young lady out for a drive to see if she asks, or even notices it! Wink However, just to agree to a certain extent with Cunno, I guess you have to be a tool to think ya new girlfriend would be interested in it in the first place. I'd talk about something else and avoid the SC demonstration. Very Happy

Personally, I'd get one with SC.

Mine hasn't got SC or PSE. There is one of those two I really want, and may well get retrofitted, and it's the PSE. However, bear in mind that you can retrofit PSE but not SC. Personally I probably wouldn't buy another 911 without PSE, but the presence or otherwise of SC wouldn't matter that much to me...

I like SC purely for the aesthetics, but then I'm shallow.
