    It seems more muscular... and yes, diferent headlights, it would be great to see something like 918 spyder lights


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    There are two elementary things that make the difference, the rear axle obviously moved backwards and the front axle featuers a wider track. Apart from the handling benefits, this completely changes the stance of the car. The front fenders are bulged outwards more like on the 993 and feature less track difference between front and rear axle.

    I also get the feeling that the windscreen is either further tilted or features a more arched shape in horizontal direction.

    Round ones are nicer IMO


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    It's wider to make room for the new V8 Smiley


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    From the side the new front lights appear concave, but there's still a lot of camo in that area so hard to tell.


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    Someone on this forum already told that the main changes are on front lights and back lights (particulary on the front).

    From the video (Car Magazine) it`s a bit more clear that the headlights will not be similiar to does on 997.

    I guess maybe headlights between 997 and 918 spyder.

    Right RC?

    @Misha - I just checked the new Cayenne again. The LED blinker bar might be very similar. Can you try to add those?

     


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    On the picture with the square front light I just was putting my hand in front of the left (round) lamp and the car looks quit good. I think something like this might not be that bad at all.

    As the rear will have a very slim light bar, the front will have something reflecting the edgy design, so I dont think we are going to see our beloved round lights!

    Misha, this still looks awkward. But I still don't think that we are going to see round shapes either. Can you add Panamera front lights?


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    ... or even something like "GT " front lights? 


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    I have tried  but Panamera lights can not fit  -  how about this ....  ( I can't  - don't want - to go beyond this , love 911 tooooo  much )

    It will also be interesting to see how the rear lights look on the 2011 Porsche 991...

    Porsche-991-Convertible_rear-lights.jpg

    ...perhaps not quite as bold as the rear lights on the Porsche 918 Spyder...

    Somehow yes, but on the other hand think about the Carrera GT, that is not so bad and it still is close to the 911 design!


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    Slightly more elliptical head-lights on this PS - personally I wouldn't like to see more 'evolutionary'  shape .   Hope , Piech wont allow something like this red car renderings .

    Yepp Misha... this red one looks horrendous!

    With your mods to the elliptical front eye I could became friend to

     


    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    Lars , my believe is that 911 must be recognizable , even , from the Moon .   Smiley

    Re: 2011 Porsche 991 spy pics... Thread Closed

    @Ron: I'm with you and I guess they will stay recognizable, but my guess it that they look different as today. So closest would be something like the Carrera GT, not round but not edgy either! But - definitive not the ugly eyes from that red picture

    Thanks for the context picture

    So - something like those front lights I would like to see!

    Misha..... its your turn to implant them
