    997S facelift video....

    http://www.worldcarfans.com/videos.cfm/v...he-911-facelift

    I like the facelift but not dramatic enough to trade in my 997S...yet

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    This looks too professional. you have to ask if Porsche "arranged" for it to be shot...

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    I like it. I'll have to get a new one.

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    Not a dramatic facelift a la 996 3.4 -> 3.6...

    Lol, gets you like that don't it.

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    Here's some comps. The second I saw those pointy tailights at intro I knew they were a "mistake."

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    front ends..., not as bad for those of us with a tinge of regret.

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    I really like the rear lights, and they should allow the return of the rear red reflector. The old rear lights seem to weigh the rear down (and I do think it's more than just the bumperettes in that pic).

    The changes to the front are sublte, but definitely more aggressive looking. Also good.

    And I thought it was hard to improve on the looks of the 997 . . .

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    Great video, I'm liking what I see

    I have the impression the sound becomes yet a bit more "old school 911", more air-cooled-like

    Great!

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    IMO the front looks very much like the 996 Turbo/4S.

    Re: 997S facelift video....

    BTW, If guys are upset about the facelift keep in mind you can buy the back bumper, front bumper, tail lights and other parts and just change them out probably as a DIY afternoon job on your 05, 06 or 07.

    Porsche most likely did not change anything else on the car (too costly: would nullify increased profits intended by facelifts). They probably left all the steel/alum body panels and attachment points the same
