PostPosted: Fri Jun 02, 2017 2:37 pm    Post subject: Looking at a 997.1TT tomorrow and need build sheet Reply with quote

Hey everyone

I am new to this forum but already find it incredibly helpful. After many years of itching to get one of my childhood fantasy cars, I am finally getting ready to pull the trigger on a used 997 Turbo. I am looking at one tomorrow morning and would really like to see the original build sheet. Before you tell me to go search the forum, rest assured I have done that and the links and methods I could find all failed to work for me. Dont know

I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions or perhaps even a way to get the build sheet? The chassis number is: WP0ZZZ99Z7S787212

Any help would be much appreciated!

My first port of call would be Porsche OPC. What information is it that you want ? 997 service book contains the build spec and extras. If you do a Google search , you can cross reference the number to the item. Good choice and best of luck. Are you getting the car PPId?

PCGB Dont know

I know if you sign up then you get a 'free' build sheet.

Bit late I know but might be worth a call, speak nicely to the lovely lady and hope she can tell you over the phone Smile

Worth a try if you are desperate Thumb

Many thanks...I will give that a try. I always like to see the original factory info for the options, build month/year, etc. I am a bit paranoid with used cars, and while I am buying from an indy dealer who seems legit, I would prefer not to wait until the PPI to find out something is fishy.

And yes, definitely getting a PPI. Any recommendations on that front also welcome! Car is near Heathrow.

Again, many thanks! Thumb

HAHA! I love the "beating of the dead horse" emoji. Fantastic. Thank you -- saved me some time. And to the other poster, thank you for the thought as well.

Thanks! I tend to agree. Did quite a bit of research and it seems the Gen1 Mezger engine will be a good long-term investment!

I would have thought £60K but I've just seen another with the same mileage the they are also asking £65K for it.

My comment was bit tongue in cheek as there's several below average mileage cars around for that price (and a lot more !!). That said, most of those are at recognised Porsche specialists.

The tan interior does look classy but isn't universally loved so I'd start bidding at £62k and expect to meet somewhere in the middle.

Going back to your original question ........ Sports Chrono, Heated Seats and Cruise Control weren't standard on these cars but everything else in the ad seems to be.

Good luck Thumb
