New 997's, and engine family lines


Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 20,000;

More than likely, I am ahead of ourselves in asking this question, but I am curious. I am one of those lucky ones who has had NO rms problems with my cab. It has been totally trouble free since new. Even worried me because I rarely used half a quart of oil in 7,000 miles, when I changed. (yes, of course I checked it often!)Here's my question. I was very interested in your comparisons of the 996 engine, which you mentioned was developed from the Boxster engine, compared to the GT3, and Turbo engines, being developed from the old reliable 911 engines. Do you know, are the 997 engines developed from the same engine as the current 996 Carrerra, or the seemingly more reliable 911 engines? (sorry, I don't know what else to call them) I was wondering if the 997S might have different guts from the standard 997?
