    bobr:
    What's with the wind screen in the turbo cab? Could this be a preview of a built in wind screen?


    as far as I heard the wind screen will come up electrical and will be a jalouise kind of thing. This picture clearly confirms that gossip!

     It has such an aggressive sound driving away! Also, nice shot of the new sunroof. Also in that video we get a nice, clear look at the headlights and tail lights.


    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    As always, thanks Lars...Prototype lof the wind screen looks rather cheap, I assume the production version will be of higher quality.

    thanks for the video!

    The placement of the sunroof looks completely out of place when open like in the video. I would much prefer the current sunroof on 997-model or a roof á la Targa where the roof is hidden on the inside of the car... This roof does not seem to be in glas either.

    Not exactly sure if the roof will be available in glas or not, but for me it looks like the same mechanics what other brands are using for their glas sun roofs. Imagine that roof in glas and it almost will give you the Targa feeling. One more indication that next Targa will have the hook back and look more than the original thing.


    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    Great video. That surely has to be an intentional leak by Porsche or the "mule" was driven around with the intention of being spotted. Anyway, I'm surprised no one has said anything about the colour! Looks like Porsche is bringing back the 70s.

    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    Useful video ... gorgeous sound on acceleration ... I wonder whether anyone will pick such a large sunroof as an option ....

    Easy, over here, we don't get an option. All non GT series 911 has sunroof and all GT series cars don't.

    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    Hopefully, they get the suspension setup of the turbo right this time! That is clearly the area in which major improvements vs. 997 turbo are necessary.

    The pictures look nice Smiley

    That sucks! I heard that the new sun roof is part of the spoiler and aerodynamic concept. Dont know exactly how it works but based on speed it will move up and down.

    Anyway - I 100% agree - the sunroof opening above the roof looks so ugly 


    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    This sunroof solution provides more headroom and when you open it you don't see it anyway, just kidding!

    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    Hi Boxster GTS,

    thanks for the video..weill the general shape from the 991 looks OK - similar to 997 which I like - but the rear end is messed up..especiallly it seems obvious now that the rear lights are not in line with the bumper..kind of the early 928s from the late 70s--not really what I like..front lights are still a bit unclear so..

    not much new..


    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    This is what I believe rear will look

    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    The video suggests that the inner lower corners of the rear light cluster have a bigger radius...

     I don't think there will be any white on the tail lights.


    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    IMvHO the rear tail lights on the 997.2 are more attractive than these spy shots ... but let's see the final look

    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

     In some ways this "minimal" camo is more distorting of the features underneath than one might expect.  At this stage we really need to see the final iteration before we can make any judgment. So far, I don't really see anything to dislike but then again nothing to lust after either.

    Re: 991 spy shots Thread Closed

    I don't see anything I dislike either, but it currently looks like there were more diffrences between the 997.2 and 997.1 than the 991 and the 997.2... well, let's see when all the camo goes off.

    After reading a few articles from journalists who joined the last tests for the 991 it also seems the 3.8 engine is untouched with the exception of a new exhaust which raises power to 400hp. If that information is not wrong, the GTS still seems like a very good deal...

    Exactly. The 997.2 in common and the GTS in particular is the 997 in perfection, whereas the new car is Porsche's first attempt of the 991. Smiley

    I too  find the sunroof very ugly. It reminds me of the sunroofs on lower priced sports cars.
