    *ALL NEW* ~Guards Red~ 997 Spy Pics @ Nurburgring

    About time they started testing them in the fastest colour

    notice the new(?) rims? - could these be the production rims, the definitely look like 19s













    few details worth mentioning:

    check out the new side mirrors! - looks like twin prongs holding them outward

    notice the rectangular tailpipes

    notice the new rims!!!

    the earlier report (forgot where i read it) about outward pull style door handles seems to be true! - no more flap style ones

    the front lights seem MUCH less camoflauged

    the side markers are either very small ie cayenne style, or heavily camoflauged...

    notice the back wiper...

    did i mention the new rims!?!?!!!!

    oh right, the brakes seem a bit small compared to those 19s...

    another fine moogle production

    Re: *ALL NEW* ~Guards Red~ 997 Spy Pics @ Nurburgring

    Good one...the rims are production rims and they are 19''. And now I shut up...

    BTW: The car is still pretty much camouflaged (front and rear).

    YESS! i was right!!!

    Re: *ALL NEW* ~Guards Red~ 997 Spy Pics @ Nurburgring

    RC,

    I really dont see a big difference between the car in the picture and 996 (besides the 993 like front spoiler). Since you have seen the uncamuflaged version, my question is if the difference felt more. I am talking proportions wise not new side mirrors :-)

    The 997 is a bit wider in the front and the rear but don't expect a C4S width.
    It looks very nice but to be honest, not really revolutionary.
    It is a more clean design compared to the current 996 but personally, I expected a bit more of some kind of a sensational look. People who liked the 996 will definetely like the 997 too but people who are still keeping their heart attached to the 993 won't be too happy. The 997 is a highly refined and revised 996, of course optically speaking. The technical part, though based on the 996, is practically completely different. But don't expect the GT3/GT2/996 Turbo engine block/design in the 997, it is still based on the current M96 engine.

    As I said, I like the "clean" design and the "flow of lines" very much on the 997, it just looks as a perfect 996 (might sound stupid but this is the way I feel...).
