    Carrara:

     Fantastic video! My only criticism on the design, is that it's too high in the rear, and there's no lid to the engine. Lowe down the wing, bonette, and tail lights, and it would be perfect. But, I need to see the entire car undisguised to make better judgment.

     Yes, I agree. It's a bit too high at the back. Probably 991.2 will correct that Smiley

     Have you noticed the weight of the 911 GT3 that is used by Car and Driver for their Mid Engine vs Rear Engine duel  It is 1500 Kg. Where is that official sub-1400 kg data from Porsche

    Good work carrara, but I hope it will not come true. Particularly the taillights are very similar to the Audi A7 Sportback. But I don't have to complain about as we all know the common roots....

    I predict that the letters P O R S C H E appears between the tail lights. The carrera S batch will sit on the spoiler.

    I have made up my mind that my next Porsche will be something that my little boy can also sit in. But If it really looks like this then I'm securing a GTS now instead of waiting for 991S. Luckily for me there is a couple of GTS coming to my dealership around Sept which I think would still be unsold (no one is buying 911 at the moment here!) so it's not too late after the Frankfurt unveil.

    No worries, I think these are duer to regulations; the camouflage covers part of the rear light cluster reflectors. Therefore, these camouflaged prototypes often carry additional reflectors to compensate for that...

    Looks like I will keep driving my 2005 S until I am 80 - what a plan.  33 years to go.  The PCCB brakes will still be on the original pads, lol.  Seriously fugly rear, way to high too... this will at least help resale of the 997, lol.

    ooooops - is that really all you can see in th future of your engine

    What the heck - this reminds me to the service hood of an Audi A2

    Re: Porsche 991 GT3 to include GT1 motorsport engine... Thread Closed

    The concept of a "sealed" engine subconsciously alludes to an unbreakable, zero-maintenance engine. Perhaps this is the marketing innuendo.

    When I had the Boxster I was unhappy I couldn't see the engine. With the 997 things improved a bit but not much of course.  Looking at the engine is part of car ownership but 911s were never good at that, anyway.

    Re: Porsche 991 GT3 to include GT1 motorsport engine... Thread Closed

     Apparently that service bay opens as a second layer to reveal the engine. It doesn't look promising though. If you notice the lid appears very high up on the car, and Porsche engineers would never put an engine that high up. So there's the problem with this car. The rear end is way too high up. It makes the car look fat, and gets rid of direct engine access. I hope they lower the rear end and give us access to the engine on the 991.2.

    Why even bother putting that lid there if all you can see is a fan and air intake Smiley
