    997 Carrera S Engine Production

    A little goodie for 997 Carrera S lovers.

    Re: 997 Carrera S Engine Production

    Heinz Redlich is the stylist responsible for the look of that intake manifold and for the overall cleanup and design of the engine compartment. He had done the same thing previously on the Cayenne.

    I cannot fault him for the appearance. He has brought a great look to both vehicles. My only complaint is that there is not a "form follows function" philosphy to his design.

    On the Cayenne, for example, there are parts of the valve cover "shroud" that have no function at all and are styling elements only. This is what I don't like and it departs from the Porsche tradition in this respect.

    Overall though, I like his work and the general cleanup of the engine compartment. It is functional in that it protects the various wires and hoses that were previously exposed. Plus, the look is great. On the 911 it is now much easier to see the engine components.

    Is he making love to that engine? Wow, talk about pride in workmanship!

    Re: 997 Carrera S Engine Production

    Looks like to me he's thinking, what the hell do I do with this now?

    Re: 997 Carrera S Engine Production

    It looks like he's thinking to himself "I can't believe I wore this goofy shirt on the day they decide to take pictures!"

    Isn't it J.P. Montoya?

    "Why didn't I sign up for product test-driving instead of engine building when I had the chance? Hmmm...that RMS doesn't look quite right from where I'm standing. Should I inform Gunther at quality control? Never mind, it's Friday. If I remember, I'll say something on Monday."

    This may sound crude, but it looks as though he's doing something to the engine if you know what I mean..
