    Yes, you are right. Looks too thin, and the rear fender is too high.

    Re: As predicted but so soon?

    Great - I've ordered my car (a MY2007 997C2S) and even before I've taken delivery (hopefully in Sept 2006), there is already speculation about how soon it will be obsolete.

    I actually prefer the design of the current 997S. All I am annoyed at (if these rumours are true) are the fact that Bluetooth won't be here till MY2008 and that there is a 20bhp power increase which I won't get.

    Is 355bhp enough power for me? Yes - but can you ever have too much of a good thing?

    As with everything else man-made, obsolescence is built in. The alarming thing is how fast this happens nowadays. Still can't believe it - even before I take delivery. That really sucks.

    Just don't bother. There's always the next new car.

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    I'm convinced they changed the tail lights (at least on the car that's been spied).

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    Me too.... looks like that curve will be straightend out at the bottom...

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    Yes, actually on the bottom right it does look like it will be different.

    the curve on the left has tape so... hard to tell

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    So is this a Mk2 997 OR is this a 998 or am i getting WAY to ahead of my self? Its alittle odd them releasing this in 08 and showing the jow public it when the new turbo is really only just come out and it looks like the current 997, What are porsche upto lol?

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    This is 997 MKII (facelift). If you recall it happened to 996 models too and didn't change the TT models at all (looks wise).

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    cause the 996Turbo already was faclifted. (new lights).
    If the 997 really gets CGT like lights, and LED in the back, why should the turbo don't. Really very strange. Shur it wouldnt make sene, but maybe this car is testing some components for the Panamera? Or really already for the 998.

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    maybe the paddle shift gear box? maybe some other gizzmo's that are inside? who knows but porsche and the lucky sod driving it

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    This is hardly a new designated model. At best it is a 997.2. I wouldn't worry the LEAST bit over these minute changes. This does not make the current 997 obsolete, at all. They are merely freshing up a few things that many of us have asked for. No a 998 it is not!!!

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    .I would like to see this rendition come to life.

    i forgot who p/s this, buuuut it caught my eye.


    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    Hey TopherV, can you make those headlights like the Cayman? that might look really cool and updated!

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    The current rear tail lights look just perfect to me, and as for the front, I can't tell any difference. extra 20hp (rumoured) would be nice though but wait... there's probably going to be a price hike.

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    Will the changes of front/rear lights be incorperated to the gt3 in 2008 too?
    Otherwise it will feel old in 2008

    Re: '08 911 Spy shots

    My only complaint is Ron:
    You posted pictures from Autospies!

    Nothing more needs to be said.
