    997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    Look closely at the brake caliper positions in both photos. Something's amiss here! Otherwise, another great looking car from Stuttgart.

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    bad photoshoped.

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    Photoshopped and...pretty much the real thing (sorry Avoe but the 997 really looks this way, only the rear lights are a little little little bit different... ).
    Somebody asked me about the interior lately: look at the Carrera GT and you have your answer...pretty similar speedo cluster. The steering wheel and other interior designs are a bit taken from the current 996 and the Cayenne but also the Carrera GT. It looks nice and better than the current design but I still prefer something more "classic".

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    By the way, i just remebered that acording to one of our magazines, the live 997 presentation to the press (not couting autoshow)is going to be in Portugal.

    Bmw did the same thing with the new Z4.As a matter of fact the road test (with that small guy) of the Z4 by Top Gear was made here.

    Cyas....

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    This picture is pretty much the same as what you see in the chopped pics except for the fact of course that it's all black.
    Note that the wheels are the same, their design is lifted straight from the CGT. Very nice. Can't wait!

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    RC, is the 997 going to have the same hideous headlights as posted?

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    It will have those BEAUTIFUL oval headlights.

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    I don't think the 997 looks that bad, if you compare to the standard 996 it looks gut, BUT the only thing that I really don't like, and makes the car look old are fog lamps and blinker. They should have fit it into the oval lamps.
    Then i would be perfekt. Maybe they asked chris bangle for an advise and it goes on his cap, who knows.

    His mods make me wanna go out and buy a 2004 GT3 now rather than waiting for the 997!!! I still hope the 997 will look better in real life, Right RC?

    Muhri waiting for the 997 patiently.

    ... sad thing is that it didn't take much to make it look like a beetle

    that's true!

    good for beetle owners, though

    Re: 997 pics - beetle edition

    lets don't forget that 40 years ago the 911 and beetle had many things common.
    Maybe this is the point, back to the roots.

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    Other than the headlights, 997 and 996 looks the same from the exterior with minor front air intake facelift. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I guess we can't expect the same changes from 993 to 996. Regardless, looking forward to some GT3 power in a C2S.

    Re: 997 pics - new and un-camouflaged?

    If I get used to the 997's "face", then I guess I'll convert my 996 to a 997 for 100 bucks
