    RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    RC,
    A while ago, you stated that the rear of the future 997 turbo would be going to look somewhat like that of the rear of the 959...
    Now I found this pic of the 997 turbo, with the exhausts into the bumper, which I think is camo. And I found this pic of the 959, where the bumper goes around the exhausts... Am I cloes? Could you please give a little bit more info?

    pic of the 959 rear

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    I really love the rear of the 959 - one of my all-time perfect cars...

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    I want to carjack that 997 Turbo and rip all the camo off!

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    RC,

    Any chance we will 959 rear spoiler on 997TT. What I mean is half atached ala 959 style?

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    Surprisingly, the bumper seam on this 997 Turbo mule is horizontal like a 996 as it wraps from below the rear light clusters toward the wheel well , unlike the " new style " diagonal one on the reg 997 where the seam joins the top side of the lights.

    I would love to give more information but I can't, I'm afraid I already said too much.
    But yes, this is a picture of a 997 Turbo mule.

    Great job, Carlos.
    The lower part is pretty close but the rear wing doesn't look right at all.

    Maybe someone could try to make a 959 style wing on this photoshop?

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    Or a 996TT arokit rear wing? I think there was amule with one on? should I try that one RC?

    Every time I see the 959 impressed by the looks.
    Will there ever be a successor?
    I do not think the CGT will have that fame.
    I think Porsche will be smart to go back to the 959 design items for the new Turbo

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    hope not

    Nope, forget about the 959 wing.
    A last hint and I shut up: think a little bit retro with a modern approach.

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    Maybe like the modern interpretation of the superb wing of the 993 TT?... Carlos, please give it a try!

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    Maybe older than that? modern 930 turbo style?

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    Thanks a lot RC and others!
    I am hoping that it looks a bit lik the wing on the 993 RS 3.6:

    I was thinking that may be close too. BTW, the 993RS was a 3.8L

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    I wouldn't be too enthused about a return to a pre-intercooler 1975 Turbo style " whale tail " like on the red car two posts before . Even the 1978 intercooler " tea tray " one like on the blue car to it's right should be kept in the design museum . If so, this "retro" thing is out of control on the 997 series.

    Re: RC; 997 turbo rear like 959?

    I would like something TOTALLY NEW!! Did you HEAR ME PORSCHE ????
