     I think the old design has a "cleaner" look. If I had to choose I would go for the pre-FL looks. However, if the new back makes the car faster - who cares. Performance is everything Smiley


    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

    I think the opposite, the new one has the cleanter look. And its always amazing how little changes are making the car look newer and more modern.

    Regarding the Datsun - shocking how huge this car is!


    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

    Before i prefer the old look at the back,but now after seeing the new one for a few..i prefer the new one..

    About the Datsun,near the GT3 it seems a truck,is big...really big

    I still don't like the new rear wing and pre FL has a nicer rear bumper and wing design. However LED lights on the FL make the rear look newer and brighter.

    But in the end, this is a GT3 and performance is everything.

    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

    I prefer the pre-FL lights, the rest of the changes are growing on me... Maybe the extra vents make it look a little "busy", but a darker colour will solve that...

    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

    We must see both cars in the same colour to decide. For my taste red is not a colour for Porsche.

    It's not where you're going, it's how you get there that counts

    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

     newer is better in this case.

    The bottom is cleaner, the wing is neater, and the vents look professional.

    Before it was a 911 with a wing now it is an integrated package, All from looks perspective. PJ still has an awesome performer. 

    And why waste all the time on thr gtr, that is one of the blandest, lousiest looking cars of all time,


    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

    In these particular shots i think the 997.1 looks better because of the clean color. Red is taking away from the lines a little and makes for a more messy shot with the tail lights and all.

    At any rate the 997.2 looks like a more solid serious track tool, showing more total pacakge.

     

    Ideally i would take the 997.1 lights but with LEDs. Then take the 997.2 lower bumper so that that 997.1 horzontal line just underneath the license plate is gone. That would be perfect car.

    Exactly my thoughts, conerning both, the butt of the GT3 new/old and the incredible size of the ricer compared to the 997. Smiley

    Great pics Lars, thanks for sharing. Smiley

    As I said in another post, the backend looks much more coherent if viewed from a proper spectactor´s angle. The new elements give the car a much more technical appearance compared to its predecessor.

    Anyways, I wouldn´t mind watching Achim´s beautyqueen(s) anytime... Smiley

    The old one is a bit more elegant looking, but the new one doesn't have that unsightly sunroof outline

    Re: Butt comparo: 997.1 GT3 vs 997.2 GT3

     From my personal view I think both look equally good from behind. The changes are very subtle. I prefer the older rear lights to the new ones, but I like the new bumper more... so at the final count, there is no clear winner for me. They both look superb.

    I prefer the new front of the FL though.

    With the nice rears its like with the great sound - more enjoyable if you follow the car instead of sitting behind the steering wheel Smiley
