    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Thanks Rossi, what a surprise...

    I like the look of it, don't really understand what they tried with the led indicators, but that aside, it's a great looking evolution.

    It seems these wheels are 20", which confirms my fear that the 991 will need them visually, which I'd rather seen differently.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    I still don't know if the rear room is bigger and if the rear seats are more comfortable now.

    A short look inside actually indicates this but unless I can sit my kids in this car, I won't know for sure.

    Nice, I think the GT3/RS will look great!
     


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Am I disappointed? No (well maybe the front blinkers)

    Am I excited? No either...

    991 confused me for sure.

    Thanks, Rossi Smiley @ Gnil: you took the words out of my mouth Smiley I apologize for contaminating the thread with a pic of an old car, but as Rossi's first pic shows a silver 991 I couldn't resist to create a direct visual comparison with my silver "Oldtimer" Smiley No reason to discontinue the love relationship with the Oldie......at least until the first pics of the 991 GT3 will leak Smiley

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    where did you get all the pictures from????

    Anyway it looks fabulous!!

    P-shop !!


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Sold for sure. Can't wait to try that 7 speed manual.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Exterior looks great (and I'm talking about the overall impression, not the details) - it looks low, powerful and full of purpose, like a Porsche should.

    The interior is another issue, but I'm guessing that it would look a whole lot better in black rather than that overwhelming beigeness!

    BTW there are still no pics on porsche.com, so I'm wondering where you got these from - hope you're not just messing with our heads.  Smiley

     ...so from pictures it looks as the 911 lost his awesome butt.

    That's what all the rear lettering is about!  No longer can you tell it's a Porsche 911 merely from appearance!

    The silver car has red brake callipers, the red car has black ones - what's that all about?

    Can't believe it has PDK buttons instead of paddles...Smiley

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Bearing in mind that people have always been initially critical of new/revised Porsche designs, I can say that the 991 is very well received by rennteam!

    Very few (slightly) negative comments and many positive ones. Even the negative ones relate to some minor details.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    looks also to much of a GT for me - although I am sure numbers will impress - I will happily wait for the next GT3


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    I am speechless! Best first edition 911, ever created! Interior is finally good looking too. Well done Porsche!

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    BjoernB:

    looks also to much of a GT for me -

    Why? The exterior in concept is like the 997. Interior? Maybe you are misled by the all-beige colour.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     

    It's not as big of an evolution as the 993 to 996, or 996 to 997 but we knew that from the spy shots.

    The rear can be de-badged but you can't flatten the console unfortunately. Like most cars, probably much better in person though. All in all, 8/10 I would say, IMHO.
