The 997 is fast becoming the most popular of the recent 911s, being better built than the 996 before, and yet offering a purer driving experience than the technically superior 991 that followed.
The generation 2 models featured new direct injection engines and in the 3.6 litre models, produced 345BHP an increase of 20BHP over the previous model. The new interior improved in quality too and the controls still feel modern today.
A manual and automatic gearbox option were offered as before, however unlike previous automatics, the new PDK 7 speed gearbox featured standard, sport and sports plus modes, allowing the owner to select the programme to suit their preferred driving style. Critically for the first time this also meant that cars fitted with this new PDK gearbox, could accelerate quicker than the manual version, with 0-60 mph coming up 4.6 seconds when sport plus was selected compared to 5.0 seconds for the manual variant, whilst top speed was 175mph.
