    It just occurred to me; are we back to a straight cut line , where the bumper assembly meets the quarter panel? It looks like it to me ....

    Why would they have this complicated split level engine cover, if they didn't need to increase the space for the retractable top mechanism......

    Oh, forgot...front lights will bear a slight surprise too.

    RC -- let's hope that the front lights don't look anything like this horrific Smiley photoshop from the August 2011 issue of Top Gear magazine...

    Larry, what you see there is the seam where the camouflage panel covering the rear bumper meets up with the real bodywork.

    don't want to be off-topic hear obviously, but the last paragraph of this article mentions that the four-cyclinder engine could be potentially used for the 911 so thought i would post--

     I`m geting a bit worrid about the headlights.... 

    What do you think they will be?


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

    These are US spec mules. Notice there are no more bumperettes. Instead the US gets a unique license plate housing. 

    What great shots! we can clearly see the tail lights, and the 991 looks small and agile in these spy shots, rather than large and fat as some others have showed. Personally, I'm relieved it looks very similar to the 997. The 997 is such a gorgeous car.

    pjd: I think there is still too much camo on the headlights to tell, but judging by what I see, there's nothing to worry about.

    The rear lights (under the disguise) look a bit small though Smiley

    Don't be frightened by that Top Gear rendering. That is one of the worst photoshops I've ever seen in my entire life. ;)

    Also, I just noticed that the new sunroof panel consists of most of the roof panel, and it isn't glass, its body coloured.

     It`s indeed a very bad photoshop. 

    Carrara, do you think you can make a PS basead on what we can see so far from the front?

     It looks good. The rear lights are more close from Auto Motor und Sport rendering than from Autobild rendering


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

    Incroyable--so they make these mules in colors other than black?  I might start really scanning this thread again.  Thank you Misha, thank you!

    Rear flanks don't seem as wide as earlier pics, and I hope final rear lights are larger.  The lights look a bit small set in that large rear bumper section.

    Otherwise, tres elegant..

     All the black mules we see are prototypes. Since we're so close to the unveiling, it seems Porsche is running the production version of the 991 on the streets, which is painted in other colours rather than black.

    BTW, pjd, here is a quick PS revealing that shape of the headlights and foglights. The headlights aren't much of a surprise, but the shape of the foglights is a big surprise.

    What is going on with the tail light/bumper angle? Looking at those taillights, there is a huge shelf at the base of the light. Looks horrible! Smiley

     Thank`s carrara, it looks good with your PS.


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

    Since back lights are small the front light should be simular in proportion they should be smaller and probably with A rim around it.
