    I esp like the "turbo" exhaust pipes sticking out of the rear bumper, as opposed to below like the yellow "997".

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    again, really looks too much like the 996. I hope the final product will be more distinguishable from the 996...

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    Not much difference between 996 and 997 so far...

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    What is looking damn good, the camoflage?
    Thanks for the pics but these cars are still camoflaged.

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    Thanks for pointing that out Christian.
    Those cars look boringly similar to the 996.

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    Well at this point having seen all that I have seen I can see right through the camo.

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    What would have made you happy??? Meaning what would you have liked to have seen in the 997 that Porsche didn't do?

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    more curvy back. Which I hope will be represented by the "S" model.
    And I also hope (and almost sure) that the front spoiler will be different, this one is very ugly, but it looks like heavy camouflage anyway.

    The front spoiler of the Turbo? Because I think the one on the yellow and black 911 are the real thing?

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    No no I mean the one on the yellow one.
    I really hope this is not the final thing, it's hideous, don't you think?

    I think "hideous" is a little strong. "Undistinguised" maybe, but sometimes things look better in person.

    To me it looks a bit like the GT3 front spoilter and disguised...

    Yes for so many "diehard" fans, no one seems to be excited about the next evolution of the 911. I dont know exactly what everyone expected. Everytime it has evolved since its inception, there has been bitching. And everytime it is better than before. People that bitched about the change from 993 to 996, will now bitch because it is changing again. And the cycle will go on as long as Porsche is in business. I would have to agree, I too am excited, and know even the minor changes will be an overall evolution of the car that is always attempting perfection.

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    The 911 is as close to perfect as will ever be!

    Maybe it's as close to perfect as it ever will be, but definitely not as perfect as it ever has been...

    Re: NEW 997 SHOTS...

    Damn... it really makes me sad that the 997 has failed to impress me yet.
    I like the shape of the highly unique and very modern looking 996 02' headlamps and I think that even after the release of the 997, the 996 turbo and 996 4S will still be first choice, when it's design you're after.
