    Hopefully PDK will be ready for this one.

    No idea but it could be antena for satelite radio or telephone .

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    I can assure you guys the new 4S will go back to its roots!
    Like so:

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    headlights look a little fooked up with the dual, stacked eyballs. like the rear treatment.

    i'm more interested in knowing the changes under the skin.

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    Not bad, but not an improvement to me. The front looks more aggressive/busy and the back appears to be less aggressive looking than the current model.

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    The rear looks funny, the tail lights look too small for the car

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    Bring back the BACK SIDE RED LINE to Carrera 4S

    btw the tail lights more Cayman'ish

    I still like the current version better.

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    Thanks Ron very very Good Pics!!!

    So the front looks better but I don't know about the rear..

    Who knows if the PDK is in this version?.....
    Can't wait to see the new 4S!

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    It's a extra option for the rear wiper. It's to wash the rear windscreen I mean. It's a exclusive option.

    you really can't judge a car from spy-pics, when I saw spy photo's from the facelifted cayenne I had to run to the toilet but after all it look great! Had the same experience with several cars, you really must wait to judge it until the final version appears!

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    I like the new head lights and LEDs!

    So when?

    Exactly my thoughts except I don't like the rear lights.

    Yep - I agree But maybe it's just because of what we've become used to.

    I don't expect PDK anytime soon (although I do hope I have to eat my words for the sake of others here who have been waiting for it so patiently for so very long...)

    In my own case, I never wanted PDK/DSG or a Tiptronic S so it never mattered to me when this technology finally appears. To me, it may increase practicality, reduce shifting times and 0-62 times BUT at the cost of driver involvement (and pleasure). So what's the point? But each person has their own priorities...so I respect that.

    I'm interested to see how much difference direct injection will make.

    I thought about all these factors before deciding to go ahead with my own order last year. I am still totally glad I did

    Mike,

    If you were living in the U.S. you could file a law suite against Porsche .

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    The rear lights are a copy of what they did to the cayenne.

    The front bumper looks like it's coming from the boxster S.


    I like the front though. Don't know about the back.

    Could it be the washer for the rear window wiper?

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    I love the middle light piece on the 4S it gives it Character

    Re: 997 face lift - Some new pictures

    Here's a comp FWIW.
    Aesthetically, the facelift is not a big "improvement" IMHO. Those "D" shapes rotated 90 degrees counterlockwise really make me weary. They're on the front of our current cars and EVERY car it seems. Weird that they softened the D on the facelifted 997 *front* end AND introduced a "hardened" D on the *rear* end of the facelifted 997.
