550GT with 445HP but not 550i ?

Was just building out my 550xdrive GT and noticed the options changed around a bit compared to when I built it on 10/4/12. It now shows 445hp as well! I'm going in today to order my car and I am guessing that it has to be correct. I will ask my sales guy but if anyone can confirm this please let me know. They also changed the options on the 535xdrive as well to include some more items. I think the updated engine is going to be the deciding factor on if I'll pay the extra $10k.

550i gets it for the LCI later next year. They introduced it first in the GT in an effort to spur sales.

Yessir! I'm guessing you do as well? My car is a little loud for the area as the local PD kindly mentioned lmao. We should meet up - shoot me a PM. I would love to check out the GT3. I had a C4S w/ PDK and thinking about going back as these damn 2010 911 Turbo PDKs have been calling my name...I think once they drop down to $100k even I can justify it.

Anyway glad to report our 550gt will be here in a week or two! Optioned out w/ M sport package of course. Carbon black exterior, cinnamon interior and matte wood trim - should look great! Already looking for a tune for the updated engine, I'll let you guys know how it goes. Looking at around 550hp 600tq - should be a nice hatchback sleeper
