The 997 911 came out in 2004 with 340hp. The most recent version with the same chassis just went on sale with 612hp. My point being, it's more important to get the chassis right first, and then power can be added easily. More powerful versions will no doubt be coming soon enough. If you don't think 200hp is enough, and aren't comfortable modding your own car to get more power, I'm sure you'll get your wish soon enough. The reason smart people (basically every car reviewer out there) are getting excited about this car, and forums trolls are constantly complaining about the power, is that the smart people see the potential this chassis has. Even the engine people on forums are constantly bitching about has shown tremendous potential to hold up well over 400hp with stock interals, and less than a year after going on sale it is already close to 200whp NA with some pretty inexpensive parts. If you think this car is not powerful enough, you are not seeing the big picture.
