    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: 991 Cabrio

    great new picture! completley new roof structure, looks more promissing as previous shots. looks more like an evolution.

    Re: 991 Cabrio

    Cool find Smiley.

    I have a feeling the 991 will look very much like 993 but wider and bigger, can't wait.

           Yes,IMHO the 997 looks a lot better(more aggressive and beautiful) than the 996,i think the 991 will be an "again better 997".

    I think that the 993 was more aggressive than the 996,but the 997 has nothing less than the 993 in aggressive look...so we can go better but not worse..i think..Smiley

    Well... Smiley

            

    Regarding the 993 and previous 911 models: I think that the 997 (1st and 2nd gen) is currently the 911 with the best design. The facelift has some elements in the front which aren't perfect but otherwise, the 997 is a real masterpiece in my opinion. This is how the 996 should have looked from the start but I suppose this wasn't supposed to happen.

    I don't know why Porsche has such problems to find a clean and beautiful design. The 993 was a masterpiece too in my opinion, so were some of the pre-964 models. The 964 and the 996 were actually the "ugliest" 911 models in my opinion but apparently, my opinion doesn't really count anymore. Smiley

    Re: 991 Cabrio

    RC -

    Your opinion counts - a lot!

    I strongly agree with your opinion that the 997 and 993 are beautiful - I do still find the 993 to be the most beautiful 911 ever, but the 997.2 is great too.  I would welcome the 991 moving even further back toward the 993, but continuing the refined finish quality that available currently - which is what the 993 had all over the 964.  I do find 964 (and older) models have a great look all their own though.  One weird thing I've noticed lately is that I originally loved the 997.2 tail lights, but now prefer the 996!  And I am interested in seeing these new LEDs in finished form...

    I think the 996 would be a world more beautful if it only had hips.  I still love that 996 turbo bumper - now represented in the 997.2 - and the turbo headlights (now gone).  The 996 turbo (and C4S) had a great, angry look that really rocked!  And the 996 GT3RSR is one of the most amazing styles ever conceived IMHO...

    One more thing - I confess that I do buy and obsess over the beauty of a car almost as much as performance - but in a prioritized order.  As I've said before, the beauty of Porsche (to me) is art follows form follows function - an artistic engineers dream come true. 

    Sometimes you come off (to me) as boiling down anyone's strong interest in style (apart from performance) as comparable to "posing" or preoccupation with others' opinions - that is not me.  I do obsess over some style cues, but not for the sake of others - only for my own sake. 

    A beautiful wife doesn't have to be a trophy, nor does a great peice of art.  Some of us appreciate beauty for beauty's sake - not merely for the sake of image.

    No offense intended to any others here - just my taste.
