    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    I really like it, actually I liked it from the older pictures that appeared in the forum some time ago. I think the front bumper looks so much better than the one that it is now. And the rear looks really fresh... For me it is really cool!

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    How much do 911 facelifts usually raise the base price does anyone know?

    I'm going to wait . . . and really, really hope for a spring introduction. I'd just hate having the "old" style after just six months rather than having the new style for the next three years.

    Not just the new style, but there will be some performance enhancements too. Sad to miss out on those - price shouldn't be much higher and your resale value will be better too...

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    can imagine that... if you look at the 996 mk1 and 996 mk2 now, I would rather have the mk2. Think it is going to be the same with the 997

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    I was looking forward to ordering a base 911 come September. But after seeing the facelift, I am having second thoughts. Arggggh...

    If you can be patient, with the 997 MkII you may get 997S performance for 997 money

    Or, you'll be able to buy a 997S MKI for 997MkI money when they try to clear inventory before the facelifts arrive...

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    Thanks Grant. Definitely going to wait if this is MY 2008. If MY 2009, I am going to bite -- I am not getting any younger!

    Hey, there's no reason to suffer during the wait. Buy yourself something fun in the meantime that won't depreciate (like a 95-98 993 or 87-89 Carrera for instance).

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    I have a MY 03 and am agonizing over the temptation to upgrade to the current 997. You can get big discounts on the 06s now, but my gut says wait. I read 08 will be an early release....spring/summer 07.
    I am hopeful of hp and other tech upgrades beside the bumpers.
    In the meantime my 996 is still fun.

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    thanks very much for posting the pics steve!!!!
    MY08 makes sense with a mid-07 release.
    I don't know why people think it will be
    MY09.
    the 996 update was after 3 years here in the states MY2002

    i actually think the pic looks good with the turn signals covered --
    i personally wish they could integrate the signals into the headlines and just have a round/ovalish headlight IMHO.

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    Mateoche,
    The separate lights were a throw back to the 993 look. I am patiently waiting for more info.

    Re: HOT: Pictures of 997 Facelift!!!!

    Pics not new, but some more potential info...
